Marcos Baghdatis was rapped for using a mobile phone on-court at the US Open on Sunday, but it wasnt the first time a phone has landed a sportsperson in hot water. Nike Air Max Shoes 2017 China . Here are five of the strangest incidents involving technology in sport, with touchdown celebrations, penalty shootouts, and high-speed driving all falling prey to the essential mobile device.Keeping in touch with the wifeTennis players are banned from using mobile phones on court under rules against coaching during matches, but that didnt stop Marcos Baghdatis from whipping out his iPhone during his fourth-round encounter with Gael Monfils at the US Open. Spotted by the chair umpire Alison Hughes, Baghdatis initially claimed he was checking the time. That excuse fell down when it was pointed out there was a giant digital clock in the stands. Next, he said he needed to message his wife. That didnt wash either, and Hughes issued him with a warning for unsportsmanlike conduct.Man and phone attached at the hipMost people wouldnt leave the house without one, but Frances Enzo Lefort took his phone addiction to new levels at last months Rio Olympics. Engaged in a foil match with Peter Joppich, Lefort was forced to take evasive action when his German opponent lunged at him. Bizarrely, he had his phone stashed in his back pocket, from which it flew as he lept backwards. A sheepish Lefort retrieved it and passed it to a man in the crowd, before going on to lose 15-13.Racking up a hefty billIn what was surely one of the most expensive phone calls in sport, New Orleans Saints Joe Horn picked up a hefty $30,000 fine for his 2003 touchdown celebration against the New York Giants. After scoring his second TD of four, the wide receiver ran to the post, under which hed stashed a phone. His iconic phone call went down badly with the officials, who awarded the Giants a 15-yard penalty for his unsportsmanlike conduct, and the NFL later slapped him with the mammoth bill.The birth of video technologyThe use of video technology has long been a hot topic in football, but back in 2009 Ben Foster was keen to pioneer a new form of penalty preparation. The then-Manchester United goalkeeper was about to go between the sticks against Tottenham in the Carling Cup final shootout. Needing to do some last-minute homework, the keeper used an iPod (ok, smartphones had only just been invented) to swot up on Spurs penalty takers. The video showed Jamie OHara shooting right. Sure enough, he went the same way in the final, and Foster duly saved. The use of the iPod was controversial, but officials later confirmed Foster hadnt broken any rules.Steering clear of troubleThe risks of using a mobile phone at the wheel are well documented, so imagine how dangerous it would be to receive a call while hurtling round a track in a Formula 1 car. Renaults Robert Kubica almost suffered that at the 2010 Bahrain Grand Prix, when he discovered a rogue phone in his cockpit during the third practice session of the weekend. Radioing his pit crew, he asked if he should chuck it out onto the road, or pull into the garage to hand it over. Sensibly, they told him to come in, and where a presumably-sheepish member of the team was waiting for his or her phone back. Cheap Nike Air Max .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. Cheap Air Max Shoes China . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition.

The team said Saturday that Lopez was hurt during its 121-120 overtime loss at Philadelphia on Friday. The Nets said they would issue another update next week after consultation with their doctors. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Like so many kids, Kyrie Irving dreamed about putting on the uniform of his home country and playing in the Olympics.For Australia, mate.Born in Melbourne, where his father played professionally, the starting point guard for the heavily favored U.S. mens team was still considering the possibility of playing for the Aussies just a few years ago.I was very serious, man, he said.But as fate would have it, Irving followed the advice of his college coach, the one who mentors him to this day and the one who once told him he could be the guard of your era and chose to play for the Americans.Im glad that he decided to do that, said Mike Krzyzewski, the U.S. coach who had Irving for a short time at Duke.Irvings surface roots Down Under will be just one of the subplots Wednesday when the U.S. team, which has barely broken a sweat during its first two games in Brazil, faces unbeaten Australia. The Aussies are the surprise squad of the Rio Games and are a group loaded with NBA talent, championship rings and big game-experience.They have great camaraderie and theyre talented, Krzyzewski said. Theyre all NBA players so they understand what it is to play against our guys.Along with his unique connection to the Aussies, Irving will be going head-to-head with Matthew Dellavedova, his former teammate in Cleveland with whom he now shares a lifelong bond after they won a title together earlier this summer.Cavaliers teammates for three seasons, theyre friends turned foes for one day.Irving expects the hard-nosed Dellavedova, a tenacious defender with a knack for getting under an opponents skin, to come at him from the outset. Hes ready.Just like I should be worried about him, he should be worried about me, Irving said Tuesday before practice. It goes both ways. Hes a great defender as well, but my job is to win the basketball game for the U.S. and Im going to do everything possible to do that. So when we step on the floor, theres no friendships. That goes out the window automatically.After he turned pro following an injury-shortened freshman year, Irving could have played for Australia, which has been competitive in the Olympics but has yet to win a medal in the games or FIBA championships. He understood it would be a long climb for him to be reecognized as one of the top point guards in the U. Cheap Air Max China. S. with Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry and Deron Williams among those ahead of him in the deep American pool.At Krzyzewskis urging, Irving had declined an invitation to play for Australia as a 17-year-old but was now giving it more consideration.And thats when Krzyzewski swayed him to join Team USA.He had a choice, the coach said. I just wanted him to always think of the very best that could happen for him and obviously playing for the United States and maybe being the starting guard on the Olympic team, thats the highest. And he had the capability of doing that. I knew that at a young age.But it wasnt like you had to put any pressure on him. I think he just needed to know that once you make the decision, then thats the country youre going to play for.Irving has felt at home from the moment he first slipped on a USA jersey. He impressed coaches and players with his quickness and ball-handling during scrimmages for the U.S. Select Team against the team that went to London in 2012, and two years later was named tournament MVP while leading the Americans to gold at the Basketball World Cup.If not for Krzyzewski, Irving could be wearing green and gold, not red, white and blue.He was a huge part of the decision, Irving said. I mean, hes Coach K. As a young fella, he definitely did tell me I had a chance to be a part of something bigger than myself and ultimately being the starting point guard on the U.S. Olympic team. I never thought it would happen as soon as it has.Its crazy to see how it has worked out.Its worked out to this point in these games for Australia, which has beaten medal contenders France and Serbia to open the tourney. The Aussies, who have five NBA starters and received a huge lift from center Andrew Boguts quick recovery from a knee injury, have a chance to show they can stand with the worlds basketball powers.As for Irving, Dellavedova, who signed with Milwaukee earlier this summer, said he didnt have anything special planned for their reunion.Ill say, gday, he said, But well probably catch up more when everything is finished. Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike Basketball Jerseys Hockey Jerseys China Supply Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Sale Authentic College Jerseys MLB Jerseys China Stitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '
