Things started to get out of hand: One fan wandered to the stage to present Iverson with a book. Another got a hold of a microphone and told a painfully awkward story about a son who’d played AAU ball with Iverson before serving in Afghanistan and committing suicide. With that the floodgates started to open, the next questioner introducing himself as “Grizzlies fan.” Host Pete Pranica then pointedly asked, “Any other questions from the media?”.
I’m obviously a bit biased toward the Vikings, but they are killing it with the purple and gold only look. I love having the gold numbers on their dark purple. It’s minimalistic yet a bold enough contrast that it works beautifully.
The teaser image a screengrab from the presentation shows the model under a dust sheet, probably in concept form.Speaking at the New York Motor Showin March, BMW AG sales and marketing director Ian Robertson said that the X7″won’t arrive this year or next, but it’s well through the development phases.”He added: “There’s very little resemblance to the X5, so it’s not an extended wheelbase X5.In its strateigic statement released in mid March 2016, BMW said “After leading the premium segment for more than ten consecutive years, the BMW brand is now poised to strengthen its position on a sustainable basis at the top end of its product portfolio, where rates of return are at their highest”.”We will be broadening our model range with theBMW X7,” said chairman of the board Harald Krger. “We are also taking an in depth look at the additional potential of this highly attractive segment.”Although there aren’t many larger SUVs than BMW’s current X5 in the UK and Europe, in America truly huge 7 seat SUVs are very popular, with models such as the Cadillac Escalade commanding impressive sales figures.The X7’s engines will also buck the European trend for downsizing, with the range of six cylinder, V8 and V12 engines confirmed. But there is also expected to be a development of the eDrive plug in hybrid system which will appear in the X5.When it arrives in 2018, the X7 will most likely share some parts with the Rolls Royce Cullinan the first SUV to be released under the Rolls Royce name.
The Grizzlies introduced Allen Iverson at a press conference in the lobby of FedExForum before a large group of local media, civic dignitaries, and excited fans. Even before he took the stage, Iverson proved a uniting force, as Mayor Pro Tem Myron Lowry and former mayor Willie Herenton shook hands before taking seats only a few feet apart. (Later, both Lowry and Herenton were introduced to a mixture of cheers and boos, Herenton lustily pumping his fist, shaking the haters off.).
It’s hard mostly because I keep thinking about what I could have done to stop this, he said. He signed with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent, made the team and hung around the past four years, eventually moving into the starting lineup. He played in all 11 games this season..
Cowboys’ Bryant has hairline knee fracture, outlook unclearFRISCO, Texas (AP) Dez Bryant could be joining Tony Romo on the sidelines again, just like a year ago when Dallas slid from first place to last in the NFC East without the two offensive stars.The Cowboys are resolute about playing with who they have this time, although there’s a chance Bryant could play Sunday in San Francisco despite a hairline fracture in his right knee.Bryant didn’t practice Wednesday, three days after the receiver was hurt in a win over Chicago, and the same day he had the MRI that revealed the fracture.”We’ve had players with this kind of injury who missed no time in the past and other players who have missed up to a week or more than that,” coach Jason Garrett said. “We’ll see how he does. When he comes in (Thursday), see how he feels and we’ll make our evaluations there as we go forward.”Big 12 an afterthought with a precarious playoff positionIRVING, Texas (AP) The Big 12 can hope for an undefeated showdown in Morgantown on the same weekend the other Power Five conferences play their championship games.For now, the Big 12 is in a precarious position, already considered by most an afterthought in the College Football Playoff conversation.”If nobody in the Big 12 gets in, it’s because there’s four other teams that are supposed to be better,” TCU coach Gary Patterson said, reminding everyone that the league does still have two undefeated teams.Only Number 13 Baylor (4 0), the league’s highest ranked team , and West Virginia (3 0) are still without a loss.
