when that street is gridlocked.

Jean van de Velde knows the pitfalls of Carnoustie better than most players, and spoke of the courses ability to take away quickly ahead of his return there in the Senior Open on Thursday. Gil Brazil Jersey . Van de Valde famously blew a five-shot lead in the final round of the 1999 Open at the Scottish course, providing one of golfs enduring images when he removed his shoes and socks while contemplating hitting a ball in the water as his lead disintegrated entirely at the 18th.The Frenchman decided against the shot, instead taking a drop which - when combined with his other strokes - saw him register a triple-bogey seven which meant the Open would go to a play-off. Justin Leonard and Paul Lawrie also contested that showdown, with Scotsman Lawrie prevailing to leave Van de Velde with thoughts of what might have been.Ahead of his return to Carnoustie for the Senior Open, Van de Velde remains fully aware of such memories but does not feel he is under any additional pressure because of his part in Carnoustie - and golf - folklore. Van de Veldes collapse led to a play-off, which was won by Paul Lawrie Its been such a long time since I really played so there is no expectation, he told Sky Sports News HQ. Its a cliche but its a case of taking it a shot at a time and a hole at a time and hopefully I can be somewhere around on Sunday.Before that Open I played there in a Scottish Open in the early 1990s so I know this course - I know what it can do.Its a course that can give but it can take away quite quickly too, sometimes. Todd Hamilton, who won the 2004 Open at Royal Troon, will also contest this weeks seniors event, although he admits he is not currently producing his best golf.This is a different course for the seniors, it is set up short but it is still a very difficult test, Hamilton said. As always with links golf you have to stay out of the bunkers.I havent been playing very well but you never know when its going to click like it did 12 years ago at Troon.

So heres what I do when I want to get into the baseball mood—I delve into "The Baseball Project". Alisson Jersey . The Toronto Argonauts signed the veteran linebacker to a three-year deal Tuesday, hours after the start of CFL free agency. MIAMI -- The only thing that keeps LeBron James up worrying at night is basketball, which simultaneously makes perfect sense and no sense. On one hand, hes the games best player. On the other, hes rarely impressed with himself. Even after a year like 2013 -- when a spectacular wedding, a second NBA championship and a fourth MVP award were among the many highlights enjoyed by the Miami Heat star -- he still is, as he puts it, striving for greatness. Or, technically, more greatness, since his enormous list of accomplishments just keeps growing. James was announced Thursday as The Associated Press 2013 Male Athlete of the Year, becoming the third basketball player to capture the award that has been annually awarded since 1931. James received 31 of 96 votes cast in a poll of news organizations, beating Peyton Manning (20) and Jimmie Johnson (7). "Im chasing something and its bigger than me as a basketball player," James told the AP. "I believe my calling is much higher than being a basketball player. I can inspire people. Youth is huge to me. If I can get kids to look at me as a role model, as a leader, a superhero ... those things mean so much, and thats what I think I was built for. I was put here for this lovely game of basketball, but I dont think this is the biggest role that Im going to have." Past winners include Joe Louis, Jesse Owens, Muhammad Ali, Carl Lewis, Joe Montana, Tiger Woods and Michael Phelps. Serena Williams was the AP Female Athlete of the Year, announced Wednesday. James joins Michael Jordan and Larry Bird as NBA players to win the award. "I dont think Ive changed much this year," James said. "Ive just improved and continued to improve on being more than just as a basketball player. Ive matured as a leader, as a father, as a husband, as a friend." So far in 2013, with a maximum of three games left to play, James has appeared in 98. The Heat have won 78 of them. None of those was bigger than the four Miami got in the NBA Finals against San Antonio. In Game 7, James was at his best,, scoring 37 points, including the jump shot with 27. David Luiz Jersey. .9 seconds left that essentially was the clincher. "He always rises to the occasion when it matters the most," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Business-wise, James is booming. Some estimate his annual income around $60 million, less than one-third of that being made on the court. His wife has opened a juice bar in Miami, and David Beckham wants James to be part of the Major League Soccer team he plans on bringing to South Florida in the next couple years. Countless people want to align with James. Few make him listen. Beckham did. "You want to be a part of it, but it has to feel real to you," James said. "You dont want to do something that doesnt feel much to you, that youre just doing for the money. We all have money. For me, my time is more than money at this point in my life." James has another "decision" to make in 2014. He can become a free agent again this summer, though still smarting from the circus atmosphere that followed him during his final season with the Cleveland Cavaliers four years ago, James is staying largely silent on what might happen. He insists he has no idea. "Im so zoned in on what my task is here this year that its hard to think about anything else," James said. "A guy the other day asked me what Im going to do for New Years, and I havent even thought about that." When asked if theres anything he doesnt like about Miami, James offered few complaints, other than the often-clogged street -- Biscayne Boulevard, or U.S. 1 -- that leads to the arena the Heat call home. "What is there not to like about Miami?" James said. "It is a home. My family is very happy; Im very comfortable. But U.S. 1? I wish that was a highway." Bear in mind, hes not always unhappy when that street is gridlocked. The last two years, hes been largely responsible for hundreds of thousands of people lining that road for Heat championship parades. And if he gets his way, theyll be back next June.
