As an elite athlete and Olympic gold medallist, how did you make the transition to sports broadcaster?Well, the camera never scared me – I always enjoyed doing interviews and tried to have fun with them. Womens Bills Jerseys . And when an opportunity presents itself, I like to dive at it head-first. When I was competing on Battle of the Blades, [I was asked] to come in for a screen test with Leafs TV. It was something I was interested in, so I immediately decided to jump at it. I fell in love with the job the second they put that mic in my hand, and Ive worked hard every day trying to get better. Its my new passion.How does your experience in sports shape your perspective on what athletes go through?Being an athlete is a privilege, its not something I took for granted. And its something that allows me to connect with and relate to other athletes as theyre competing at the top level.  Having been able to play at such a high level, Ive seen a lot of fantastic athletes and the way they prepare. You can relate with steps theyre walking through: going over shifts in their mind, or even calming their nerves [in the clutch]. And the quality that all competitive athletes have in common is the fact that we all want to be perfect. Thats what we strive for, even though its never really attainable. So I understand that feeling, and I empathize with them. Youre well known as an Olympic hockey player, but do you play any other sports?I was most focused on hockey and soccer up until I went to college, and I ended up having to choose one, because you cant play both. But in high school I played flag football, softball, basketball, cross country, track and field, soccer, and of course hockey.  I just enjoy competing, and I think it was also a cheap excuse to get out of class sometimes!One other sport Im passionate about: I recently fell in love with my road bike. Ive got the need for speed. Oh, and I also play tennis with friends for fun. By no means am I Serena Williams, though in my head sometimes I do think I hit as hard as she does!You were a panelist for womens hockey broadcasts on TSN during the Sochi Olympics. What was it like covering a team you played for?Those are my best friends – theyre my sisters. I spent years training with them. Weve laughed together, cried together, won together, and learned together. So to step in and cover it was an emotional experience, having just been released from the team. It was also a great learning experience for me. I wanted to give not only the Canadian women but the sport of womens hockey the best possible coverage, because I think they deserve it. I put a lot of pressure on myself to come up with unique points to break down the game differently, not only to show how skilled these athletes are, but to teach the viewer about our sport, because its a little different from the mens game. Due to the no body contact rules, its a speed and finesse game.   It made me proud to be able to talk about my friends, not only from Canada, but the USA, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, and more. To share their stories with the rest of Canada, and to let viewers know how much attention they deserve.Youre also part of the Champions network with the Special Olympics, how did you get involved with it?It was actually through Jamie Salé. I got to know her through Battle of the Blades, and she was so helpful and patient – I dont know if Id have been able to half the things on that show if it werent for her. She reached out to me and asked if Id be interested in helping out. Im an honourary chair with Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer, and this was another chance to give back and stay involved with the athletic community, so it was an easy decision. Weve got a really good team in place, and there are many events to come.Who were your sports heroes growing up?As a kid, you always look up to your parents. My mom played baseball. She was a rover, and she had a hot glove. And my dad played hockey at the collegiate level and junior level in Sudbury. My dad coached a college team, the Cambrian College Golden Shields, and I lived at the rink, watching them play. So my dads hockey players were my first true hockey idols. They were a big, tough team, and it helped shape my game. I wasnt the biggest, but I played mean.When womens hockey emerged with the Womens World Championship in 1990, there was one player who I played a lot like, and that was Geraldine Heaney. She came to Sudbury one year to my dads hockey school, so I actually got to play with my idol at the age of 12. She snapped a picture with me wearing her silver medal from Nagano, and I knew immediately that the Olympics was something I was prepared to do anything for. Whats your favourite sports team?I went to college at Ohio State University, so Im a Buckeye. I bleed scarlet and grey through and through. Aaron Ward tries to make fun of me about it, but his Michigan Wolverines have a hard time standing up to the Buckeyes. Ohio State-Michigan football games are the best: I remember one game at the end of the year we beat them 52-49, and I rushed the field with everyone and ripped out part of the 50-yard line. We planted it in our front yard at the house I lived in.Youre currently hosting TSNs French Open Primetime broadcasts, who are some players youre looking forward to covering at the tournament?Well, I think Roger Federer owns the title of most talented, but Novak Djokovic is the most entertaining tennis player out there. I always like watching him because he brings lightheartedness to the game. He pushes the envelope of traditional tennis etiquette. And of course the young Canadian players: Eugenie Bouchard is so young and so talented, and Milos Raonic is just waiting for his breakthrough moment. This is the first tennis tournament Ive covered, and if he does well, obviously I must have had something to do with it, right? Maybe that will be my claim to fame.Tessa Bonhomme hosts French Open Primetime, airing every evening of the tournament on TSN. Visit for full schedule info. Cheap Tremaine Edmunds Jersey . -- Manager Bob Melvin shuffled the Athletics batting order and got the type of production he was looking for from the top of the lineup. Authentic Bills Jerseys . The whole deflation of New England Patriots footballs is like a murder mystery without the violence or significance. On one side, this is a ridiculous issue. . "Its amazing to do this coming from such a small island, where tennis isnt necessarily recognized as one of the main sports," Puig said. "Im just happy Im able to be here playing tennis not only for myself, but for my country too.TORONTO - Although the Raptors were tight-lipped about the status of injured forward James Johnson on Monday afternoon, his absence spoke loader than words. Johnson did not participate in practice, two days after exiting Torontos win over Utah with a right ankle sprain and leaving the Air Canada Centre on crutches. Theres no timetable for his return, but coach Dwane Casey did not sound optimistic regarding his short-term availability. His ankle is tender, Casey said following Mondays practice session. I dont know how long hes going to be out. Its a pretty good sprain on his ankle. Its nothing more than that. Well see how it goes for the next few days, and see how long hes going to be out. Coming down on the foot of a camera operator after diving for a loose ball on the baseline, Johnson turned his ankle early in the fourth quarter of Saturdays game. After trying to play through it for two minutes, the sixth-year vet hobbled to the locker room where he would remain for the duration of the contest. X-rays were negative, but Johnson was walking with a significant limp, requiring assistance from teammate Jonas Valanciunas to get from the shower to his locker after the game. Even though the Raptors have a rare three-day break before hosting the Grizzlies - his former team - on Wednesday, its unlikely that Johnson will be available for that contest. The team is preparing to move forward without its best perimeter defender, at least for the time being. Its a gang effort, Casey said, asked about replacing Johnson, who has become a valuable piece of his second unit early in the season. Someones got to take up that slot. Next man up. Just because a man is down, the next guy behind him has got to be ready to play, to perform. Whoever that is, whether its putting DeMar [DeRozan] more at the three, or whatever the situation may call, weve got to be ready to attack, next man up. Injuries are part of the NBA. Thats why you have 15 men to a rosster. Cheap Wyatt Teller Jersey. In his second stint with the Raptors, Johnson is logging just under 20 minutes per night, most since 2011-12, his last campaign with Toronto. The injury comes at an especially inopportune time for the 27-year-old, who was in the early stages of putting together a career season. Averaging 7.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and over one steal and block over the first 10 games - while shooting a career-best 57 per cent from the field - Johnson has been Torontos unsung hero off the bench. While the same size is still unquestionably limited, in the 194 minutes that Johnson has played this year, the Raptors are holding opponents to 89.6 points per 100 possessions, the best mark of anyone on the team. Theyre allowing nearly 19 points more (108.3) per 100 possessions in the 286 minutes hes spent on the bench. Of course, so much of that is a testament to his versatility - his ability to switch off on almost any player, defending nearly every position on the floor and co-existing in whichever unit hes out there with. Offensively, hes been a pleasant surprise. James has been playing very under control, within himself is what I like to call it, Casey said ahead of Saturdays game. He watches film diligently and studies the film. Hes not trying to do too much. Hes cut down on a lot of those mistakes and playing within himself has really, really given him an opportunity to score more and have the ball in his hands and build the trust with him teammates. Without Johnson in the lineup, assuming he does miss time, Casey will lean on his regulars - DeRozan, Terrence Ross, Lou Williams, among others - to log more minutes, but hell more than likely stick with a 10-man rotation, with Landry Fields stepping in as early as Wednesday. Fields, a five-year vet, has appeared in just three games this season, all in garbage time at the end of lopsided victories. He was unavailable for two contests last week with a bout of the flu.
