Kara Langs brave bid to return to Canadas womens soccer team is over. Dwayne Harris Jersey . The 27-year-old from Oakville, Ont., has suffered a third devastating knee injury, ending an attempted comeback she started nearly a year ago. Lang tweeted the news early Thursday morning. "2 days after being cleared to train w/ #CanWNT my knee literally exploded yesterday. Ive torn just about everything you can in a knee," Lang wrote. The former national team star striker launched a comeback last March nearly two years after two torn ACLs forced her to walk away from the game at the age of 24, tearfully announcing her retirement at a news conference in Oakville. She put her broadcasting career on hold last March in hopes of returning to the game, and then spent three weeks out of every month in Montreal training with athletic therapists, in a total "rebuild" -- a tedious breaking down-building up process meant to prevent her from reinjuring her knee. She joined the womens residency program in Vancouver in the fall. "Thank U to everyone whos been there for me along this crazy trip. Staying positive b/c I have the best support system anyone could ask for," Lang tweeted Thursday. The five-foot-eight striker, known for her booming shot, scored 34 goals in 92 games, and played in two World Cups -- in 2003 and 2007 -- as well as the 2008 Beijing Olympics. "Its just kind of one of those things where I have to try it," Lang told The Canadian Press last summer. "Nothing is guaranteed when you really look at it. I just need to know that I tried." Having Lang back in the lineup would have been a big boost for Canadas World Cup campaign, and great news to the fans whove followed the five-foot-eight striker since she was part of Canadas silver-medal performance at the FIFA U-19 world championships in Edmonton in 2002. Lang, who was 15 at that tournament, scored three goals in six games. Shes also the youngest player to be named to the national senior side, making her debut at 15 in March of 2002. Olivier Vernon Jersey . J.J. Hardy drove in a run for the Orioles, who bounced back from an 8-4 loss in the series opener on Friday. Fresh off the 15-day disabled list, Derrek Lee went 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Jake Arrieta (7-3) gave up three runs on five hits over six innings to pick up the win. Sterling Shepard Jersey .

Read up on all the questions and answers, and put in your own two cents on our popular Your Call feature. http://www.nygiantsfanatic.com/c-29-giants-brad-wing-jersey.aspx . -- A lawyer for the fiancee of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez asked a judge Friday to throw out perjury charges, saying Shayanna Jenkins did not wilfully lie as she was bombarded with 1,630 questions over two days before a grand jury.The Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats have not met in an East Division Final since 1986. While that may seem like an eternity, and by CFL standards it is, this battle harkens back to a battlefield of an era that predates this rivalry by several centuries - Ancient Greece. The Argonauts name can be traced back to the Toronto rowing club that adopted that moniker in 1872. It honours the Greek mythological tale of Jason and the Argonauts quest for the Golden Fleece. So how do the Ticats fit into this epic tale? When a team employs an offence that features two different quarterbacks, it has been known to opponents as a two-headed monster. That evokes the Greek mythological creature the Hydra, which had several heads. If one was cut off, another one would immediately grow in its place. The Argonauts vs the Hydra. A super bout for the ages. For the Ticats of current day, Henry Burris gets most of the snaps at quarterback during the course of a game. Dan Lefevour is not only the short yardage QB, but takes over when head coach Kent Austin believes that an offensive play or series that features his strengths is called for. So do the Argos have to change their defensive scheme for Hamiltons multi-headed offence? "Not at all," all-star middle linebacker Robert McCune told TSN.ca. "Were still going to run our defence. When Lefevour comes in, we have a good idea that its maybe a run or some kind of short yardage pass, but Henry can run the ball too, so we have to prepare for both of them." Safety Matt Black had very kind words for the short-yardage specialist. "Lefevour is a great quarterback," said the Toronto native. "You saw what he did at the end of (Sundays) game. Hes a powerful runner and can get the tough yards." Lefevour basically runs a wildcat offence. Black says that the key to stopping it is simple. "Be disciplined," continued the first-year starter. "If your job is to capture the edge, then you have to capture the edge. If your job is to cover the tight end, then you have to cover the tight end. The moment you start getting nosey and peeking is the moment hell pull it or theyll run a trick play and hurt you on it." In theory, it sounds like a great offence to run, unless of course you talk to the starting quarterback. While Burris hasnt been complaining about the rotation, most quarterbacks will tell you they play better when theyre allowed to get into a rhythm, something that Burris certainly wasnt able to do against the Alouettes in the East Semifinal. Argos head coach Scott Milanoovich, a former star NCAA quarterback who played pro in the CFL, NFL, XFL, AFL and NFL Europe, was hesitant to speak specifically about the Ticats situation, but ended up doing so anyway. Evan Engram Jersey. "My personal experience would be that any quarterback is going to tell you the same thing; that theyd rather be out there for every play," said Milanovich after Wednesdays practice. "I assume Henry would say the same thing, but theres been a period of time this year where wed put Zach (Collaros) in on second-and-three, second-and-four, maybe not for an extended period of time like theyre doing, but most quarterbacks generally dont want to come off the field, so I dont know that Henry would feel any different (laughs)." Argos quarterback Ricky Ray has never been a part of an offence that rotates its pivots the way the Ticats do. Early in his Edmonton days, the QB with the hot hand would be the starter, but they didnt rotate as often as Hamilton does. Would Ray find the situation difficult? "I havent had a lot of experience coming out and then going back in," said the East Division nominee for Most Outstanding Player. "You just have to make the best of it. Theres nothing you can really do about it, you just try to stay in it mentally when youre not out there. The biggest thing is just trying to stay loose, staying warm and being able to go back in." So while not ideal for quarterbacks, Hamilton has proven that the two-headed monster can be a dangerous opponent to contend with. How do the Argos slay the beast on Sunday? Toronto rookie linebacker/rush end Shane Horton has the perfect man for the job. "No question, its Vader." Huh? "Vader has the force like nobody else." It should be noted that Horton is a fanatic about the Star Wars series. He wears a Darth Vader tee shirt under his uniform on game days and his Twitter handle is @Darth_ShaneO So how would the Sith Lord defeat the mythological creature? "Hed just give him a force choke with two hands instead of one." Is that what Horton plans to do against the Ticats? "No, no 15-yard penalties. Im going to go below the helmet." In the legend it was Heracles, not Darth Vader, that slayed the Hydra. The Argos are hoping to channel their inner Greek hero on Sunday.
