Chad Johnsons signing with the Montreal Alouettes capped a month long period of speculation; CFL fans wondering if one of the most notorious receivers in recent memory would actually sign in the league, or if he was just having some fun on Twitter. The player formally known as Ochocinco is officially taking his act north of the border. Hell help the Alouettes at the turnstiles, but will he help them on the field? Johnson hasnt played a professional snap since 2011 with the New England Patriots, filling his time since then trying out for soccer teams, riding bulls, and dancing with the stars. His late career numbers in the NFL were less than impressive as well. The 36-year-old had just 831 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 2010, his last campaign with the Cincinnati Bengals, whom he had his most success with, before capping his time in the NFL with a 276-yard, one touchdown season in New England. The veteran reportedly looked good in his tryout with the Als during their Florida mini-camp however and Montreal GM Jim Popp insists the teams interest is football-based. "Its all business," Popp told reporters in Florida. "Its real. Hes in great shape. He wants to play and well see how things are." And for Johnsons part, the 11-year NFLer insisted this wasnt another publicity stunt along the lines of his other post-NFL activities. "Its just football. Its football, its not about Montreal. Its about the opportunity to be able to play football again, something I love," Johnson told reporters, adding he was humbled by the opportunity to play in the CFL. And for all the headlines Johnson made during his time with the Bengals and Patriots, he was never considered a bad teammate. Knowing hes not likely to be a locker room cancer, his signing could be a gamble worth taking. With Anthony Calvillo retired, the Alouettes are looking for a new star. Johnson will certainly sell some tickets, but does he have enough gas left in the tank to justify people paying to see him play? The Rouge asks: Can Chad Johnson be successful with the Alouettes? Youve heard what weve had to say, now its your turn. As always, its Your! Call. Chris Chelios Jersey . Matt Carkner got back into the Ottawa lineup, and made his presence felt right away by settling his clubs score in a one-sided fight with Rangers forward Brian Boyle. David Booth Jersey . Sopoaga hit the upright with his first shot at goal from 15 metres. He then kicked nine goals in succession -- two conversions and seven penalties -- before being replaced in the 62nd minute, three points short of the Highlanders record for most points in a match. http://www.redwingshockeyauthentic.com/ ... lm-jersey/.

Bjoerndalen, who had failed to win any major race for two years before Sochi, writes in a Facebook entry that he is "full of energy and inspiration" after winning the 10-kilometre sprint and mixed relay at last months Olympics.EAST HARTFORD, Conn. - Landon Donovan ran onto a backheel pass from Jozy Altidore in the 25th minute, looked at the goal from 12 yards and drove in a right-footed shot in like he had so many times before.Storybook ending?Not this time.The ball clanked off a post, and Donovan couldnt beat Ecuador goalkeeper Maximo Banguera to the rebound.Sixteen minutes later, the most-accomplished national team career of an American player came to an end.Donovan was applauded and cheered by the crowd of 36,265 at Rentschler Field on Friday night, when he couldnt add to his American records of 57 international goals and 58 assists.I was watching Jeter a few weeks back. I thought that would be a perfect way to score a goal, but unfortunately it didnt happen tonight, Donovan said, a reference to the winning hit by Yankees captain Derek Jeter in his final home game.After the 1-1 draw ended, he hugged each of his teammates in the centre of field, then took a slow lap around the field, using the sleeves of his sweat top to dab the tears from his eyes. In front of the benches, he hugged what appeared to be family members, and then he climbed in front of the stands behind a goal to lead the American Outlaws supporters in a chant of I Believe That We Will Win!Donovan did contribute to Mix Diskeruds fifth-minute goal. Donovan crossed the ball from the left, and Altidore failed to connect. DeAndre Yedlin, the 21-year-old defender who is among the top American players of the next generation, played thee ball in front of the goal, where Diskerud scored from 12 yards.ddddddddddddEcuador secured the draw when Enner Valencia scored in the 88th minute with a shot from outside the penalty area that curled around defender Tim Ream and bounced in, with goalkeeper Brad Guzan about 3 yards away.Donovan, who is retiring after Major League Soccers season, was serenaded during the exhibition by fans chanting Thank You Landon! and they gave him a minute-long standing ovation when he was replaced by Joe Corona. Donovan was congratulated by teammates before he left the field, handed the captains armband to Altidore and then exchanged a brief handshake and hug with Jurgen Klinsmann, the coach who controversially cut him from the roster in May and denied Donovan what would have been a fourth World Cup trip.While Donovan and Klinsmann have had a strained relationship since the May 22 decision to leave the 32-year-old Los Angeles Galaxy forward off the World Cup roster, U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati persuaded Donovan to put aside his anger and return for the testimonial. Donovans 157th international appearance left him second among American men, behind only Cobi Jones 164.Before the kickoff, Gulati presented Donovan with a collage of 19 U.S. jerseys from his career, framed with redwood, the state tree of Donovans native California. The jerseys were mounted on an oak, the Connecticut state tree, and the names of Donovans U.S. teammates were etched in the oak.
