CALGARY -- The Calgary Stampeders have extra motivation to win their home opener against the B.C. Lions tonight. Not only do the Stamps want to start the 2013 CFL season with a strong showing, they also want to win for their fans who have been affected by the devastating floods in southern Alberta. The game can be seen live on TSN and TSN Mobile TV beginning at 10pm et/7pm pt. "Im ready to go out there and just give the stadium and the community something to be cheerful and happy about due to the flooding and everything with whats been going on," said Calgary kick returner/receiver Larry Taylor. "A lot of families are dealing with a lot of emotional things, being evacuated out of their places. "Hopefully we can come out here and put on a good performance on Friday night and give the fans something to take their minds away from what theyre dealing with personally." Representatives from the Canadian Red Cross will be on hand at McMahon Stadium on Friday night to collect donations for the flood relief effort. "It has been an extremely difficult week for the city of Calgary and our hearts truly go out to all the people who have been displaced and affected by the flood," said Calgary coach and general manager John Hufnagel. "This is an incredibly challenging time for so many Calgarians. This football team is looking forward to providing a little boost to our city for a few hours Friday night at McMahon Stadium. "I know the Stampeder fans are very avid fans that have been waiting for this all off-season." B.C. coach Mike Benevides offered up his condolences to those who were affected by the flooding. "I obviously want to let everybody in Calgary know that were certainly thinking about them and our thoughts and prayers are with them," Benevides said. "My hope is (Friday) night we give them three hours of distraction and an exciting game."Running back Jon Cornish said that he expects the atmosphere at McMahon to be extremely emotional leading up to the opening kickoff. "What happened here in Calgary has hurt so many peoples lives a killed people," Cornish said. "If theres one thing we can do tomorrow to help this city, its win." Cornish added that it wont be an easy task for Calgary against a tough B.C. defence, but that the Stampeders are up for the challenge. "They have a huge amount of experience back there and their defensive line is quite impressive," Cornish said. "Its always really fun for me to play against them because its a great opportunity to see where we are and how well we can deal with the best." Via his twitter account ((at)jonnycornish), Cornish stated: "So its decided, for this game I will be donating $10 a yard to the Red Cross. Lets hope BCs defense doesnt have a problem with that!" While impressed with Cornishs generous offer, Lions linebacker Adam Bighill said he and the rest of the B.C. defence will do their utmost to contain Cornish. "In a way that sucks, but in a way, weve got to get our job done too," Bighill said. "Hes a good player and a feature player for them. Youve always got to know where their weapons are and hes definitely one of them and he touches the ball a lot." Veteran receiver Nik Lewis also said that hes looking forward to seeing how the Stamps match up against B.C. "Its a great way to start the season off," Lewis said. "Its a Western Division opponent, one of the top teams since Ive been here. Its a great way for us to focus in and see what weve got early." Calgary quarterback Drew Tate, whos looking to rebound from an injury-plagued 2012 season, said he cant wait to take to the field on Friday night to play in front of a packed house. "I think were all really excited about this opportunity not only just for ourselves and our team but for the city also," Tate said. Meanwhile, the Lions will be out to avenge a 34-29 setback at home to Calgary last November in the West Final. "You do remember the last game you played and it was a bittersweet one," said B.C. quarterback Travis Lulay. "Calgary came into our place and earned that one. It just teaches you if you havent been humbled yet in sports that you earn every single win. "We found that out in playoffs the hard way. Thats sports. Youve got to come back. Youve got to have a short memory." Lulay added that the Lions will definitely have their work cut out for them against the Stamps. "We have a ton of respect in our locker room for this Calgary football team and rightfully so," Lulay said. "This is a great test for us. We just want to go out and see if all the hard work we put in at camp can be used on game day."

His absence, however, did allow the organization to see ample promise in rookie Montee Ball and abundant progress from second-year speedster Ronnie Hillman. That gave them the faith to put the football and their fortunes in the hands of the two young running backs Thursday by releasing McGahee, the 31-year-old bruiser who led them in rushing last season despite missing the final two months with a right knee injury. The move wasnt unexpected, but the timing of it was a bit of a surprise. The Broncos could have kept McGahee through training camp as an insurance policy against injury even if he wasnt going to vie for the starting job. Instead, they sent him on his way just before wrapping up their three-day mandatory minicamp where McGahee had gotten just a handful of handoffs. "In fairness to him, I think (for) the things hes done for us, this gives him a better opportunity to hook on somewhere," coach John Fox said. "It gives us a better opportunity to give some of these young guys more reps. Its just a conscious decision for us to get younger." McGahee was mostly a spectator this week and seemed resigned to his impending release when on Tuesday he said, "If it happens, it happens." Hours after releasing McGahee, the Broncos signed Ball, their second-round draft pick, along with cornerback Kayvon Webster, their third-round selection. "Im not here for money, honestly," Ball said shortly before heading inside team headquarters to sign his contract. "And thats what I told my agent. I told him not to bother them that much. Im just blessed to be here because its always been my favourite team." McGahee had two years and $4.5 million remaining on the four-year, $9.5 million deal he signed in 2011. By releasing him, the Broncos will take a $1 million cap hit this season. The Broncos are still deep at the position with former first-round pick Knowshon Moreno and versatile fullback Jacob Hester, among other veterans, also in the mix. McGahee was the first signing Fox and his boss, John Elway, made when they joined forces in 2011, and Fox said parting ways with the affable pro was difficult both for him and running backs coach Eric Studesville, who had worked with McGahee back in Buffalo. "Id like to thank Willis for everything he did. He did a great job for us, leading rusher. He was one of our first signees when we came here to get this thing turned around and its an unfortunate part about this business, but he did a great job for us," Fox said. Elway said, "Its never easy to part ways with a veteran player who made so many positive contributions to our team and community. I appreciate all of the competittiveness, toughness and leadership Willis brought to the Broncos.dddddddddddd He was an integral part of our teams turnaround during the past two seasons, and I wish him the best as he continues his NFL career." Even with Ball, who scored an NCAA record 83 touchdowns at Wisconsin, joining a bulked-up Hillman in the Broncos backfield, McGahee shunned the teams three weeks of voluntary workouts this spring, something Fox insisted had nothing to do with Thursdays decision to release him. Upon his return for the Broncos mandatory minicamp Tuesday, McGahee said he skipped the OTAs for family reasons, insisted he would still be the starter come September and suggested that missing those 10 workouts didnt put him at a decided disadvantage by giving the youngsters a head start. "I probably would have been behind the 8-ball either way," he said. "Younger group. Just being real, right?" Now hell be looking to carry the ball for someone else. The 11-year veteran who was set to make $2.5 million in 2013 should draw interest across the league. Although hes pushing 32, hes doesnt have the wear and tear that would be expected of a running back who has been in the league a decade because he spent much of his career sharing snaps. He played in Buffalo from 2003-06 and Baltimore from 2007-10 before joining the Broncos for an eventful two seasons in which he was an integral part of the Tim Tebow experiment and then the Peyton Manning comeback tour. McGahee, who became one of the NFLs most dependable runners despite tearing all the ligaments in his left knee during his last game for the University of Miami, tore the medial collateral ligament and suffered a compression fracture to his right knee in a game against San Diego last November and missed the rest of the year. Still, he led the team with 731 yards rushing. McGahee said this week he wasnt bothered by the Broncos selecting another running back high in the draft, suggesting, "Im a different breed. I can block, I can run, I can get the tough yards. Everybody cant do that." He also said he had been medically cleared to participate fully at practice, declaring, "Im healthy. Im clear. No problems. I can run," and he said he felt he still had plenty of football left in him, especially with the way the rules severely limit padded practices now. His teammates had figured McGahee would be back with them for some of those practices when training camp opens next month and were stunned to see his empty chair in the running backs meeting room. "I mean hes a guy that you look up to being in the league for a very long time and hes still capable of doing the things that he was doing six years ago," Hillman said. "So Im pretty sure hell get picked up again. But its a sad day for me because he was a real mentor to me." ' ' '

 On the strength of this achievement, Rolex would eventually Replica Watches become the world’s largest manufacturer of chronometer-certified wristwatches. The Replica Watch Geneva-based brand perfected the concept of the modern watch in 1926 by inventing the waterproof “Oyster” case to protect the movement inside and then, in 1931, by Fake Watches developing the self-winding “Perpetual” rotor movement. Today, all Rolex Oyster Perpetual Watch Replicas watches are officially certified chronometers, carrying on the heritage of the pioneering role the brand played in bringing precision to the wristwatch.
