OTTAWA -- A majority of Canadians equate mens hockey gold with success at next months Sochi Olympics, a new poll suggests. Avery Bradley Jersey . Seventy-three per cent of those surveyed in the Harris-Decima poll, which was provided to The Canadian Press, said Canada winning gold in mens hockey is "important in determining the success of the Games." But even more say they view avoiding security threats as the most important measure of whether the Sochi Olympics are a success. In total, 83 per cent said it was very or somewhat important that there be no security threats. That is a slightly smaller number than the 88 per cent who said in a survey prior to the 2010 Olympics that it was very or somewhat important that there be no security threats in Vancouver. Nationally, 58 per cent of those polled suggested they would follow the Sochi Olympics very or somewhat closely, also down from those polled prior to the Vancouver Games. And just over half those polled suggested theyd be paying less attention to these Games than they did to the Vancouver Olympics. "We saw an amazing degree of national enthusiasm for the Games we hosted in Vancouver and we shouldn't expect Canadians to get quite that engaged for any other Winter Olympics," said Harris-Decima vice-president Megan Tam. "That being said, a majority of Canadians anticipate following the Games in Sochi and there is clearly some sense of national competitiveness demonstrated with the attitudes expressed about the importance of winning certain gold medals or even the most overall again." B.C. residents were the most likely to say they would be paying a lot less attention to Sochi. Mens hockey gold wasnt the only big item on the list of those who will be following the Olympics. A gold by the Canadian womens hockey team was also picked by 71 per cent as important in gauging success. And 70 per cent said they felt it was important there be no organizational problems that could give the Olympics a black eye on the world stage. Canadas overall standing was also important with 63 per cent saying its important Canada finish in the top three in the medal count, and 58 per cent suggesting Canada winning more medals than any other would be important in their determination of the success of the Olympics. The telephone survey of 1,015 Canadians was done between Jan. 9 and Jan. 13. The survey is considered accurate to a margin of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

Reggie Lewis Celtics Jersey . - Frankie (The Answer) Edgar dominated B. http://www.authenticcelticsproshop.com/Kevin-Mchale-Jersey/ . -- Jonas Hiller is cautiously confident he has kicked his vertigo.INDIANAPOLIS -- Andrew Luck followed a familiar script Sunday. He started fast, played efficiently and delivered the late-game victory. Just like he did as a rookie. The only difference this time was that he won this game with his feet. After throwing for 178 yards and two touchdowns, Indys second-year quarterback took off and scored on a 19-yard TD run with 5:20 to play to beat Oakland 21-17. "I went through my reads. As you're sort of stepping up you sort of realize, Hey man, theres no one here," Luck said after Indy won its first opening-day game since 2009. "That decision is like OK, I can make the first down. Then you start running and its OK, lets go for the end zone." He made it work, of course, as he always seems to do. But Luck and the Colts tried to change the formula during the off-season. Indy brought in two new offensive linemen to protect Luck better and create running lanes, and it overhauled the defence to try and keep Luck and the offence on the field. They got mixed results Sunday. While the Colts ran 26 times for 127 yards, Luck was sacked four times and hit a handful of others, and the Raiders still managed to convert 7 of 13 times on third down. Luck completed 18 of 23 passes after starting the game with 11 consecutive completions. Reggie Wayne had eight catches for 96 yards and one score. The Colts defence couldn't get off the field in the second half, yet somehow managed to hold long enough to give Luck a chance to work his late-game magic, and then made the big play to seal the win. It was enough to get the win -- but not good enough to satisfy Chuck Pagano, who is 8-1 at home since taking over as the Colts coach last season. "We didnt go into a shell. It was either a penalty, negative play, a sack that took us out of (it)," he "We still drove the ball. We still got it to midfield. We were still on their side of the 50. But then wed shoot ourselves in the foot." The miscues allowed Oakland to stay close and even take the lead midway through the fourth quarter with a team that started the day with nine new defensive starters and no announced starting quarterback. But after allowing touchdowns on Indys first two series, the Raiders frustrated Luck and the Colts the rest off the day. Marcus Smart Celtics Jersey. The most frustrating part for the Colts was Terrelle Pryor. In just his second career start, the Raiders new starting quarterback went 19 of 29 for 217 yards with one touchdown and set a franchise record for yards rushing by a quarterback. Pryor, the former Ohio State star, carried 13 times for 112 yards, breaking the mark (85 yards) former league MVP Rich Gannon established Oct. 8, 2000. But Pryor made more mistakes than Luck. Pryor threw two interceptions, both in the red zone, and took a 16-yard sack with 68 seconds to go after Oakland reached the Indy 8-yard line. Two plays later, he was picked off by Antoine Bethea at the Colts 4. "Im disappointed in myself. Taking sacks in unacceptable," Pryor said. "This loss is on me. At the end of the day, I threw the ball away. I did awful, I thought." Luck opened the scoring with a looping 12-yard TD pass to Wayne on the first drive and stood in against Oaklands pressure to connect with Dwayne Allen on a 20-yard score to make it 14-0. Pryor answered with two long runs to Darren McFadden for a 1-yard TD run that cut the lead to 14-7. And with the score 14-10, Pryor gave Oakland the lead when he hooked up with Denarius Moore on a 5-yard TD pass with 11:09 to go. Thats when Luck responded. On third-and-4 from the Raiders 19, the middle of the field opened up and Luck took off. Oakland couldn't catch him. "Sometimes when it just opens up like that, you can't help but go," Luck said. "I knew I wanted the first down if I took off. Then Darius (Heyward-Bey) did a great job of coming out of his route and just pinning the guy, blocking his man in. A nice lane into the end zone." Notes: Two fans were injured following the game when a railing gave way and they fell into the walkway leading through one of the tunnels. ... Wayne passed Steve Largent for No. 13 on the NFLs career list for yards receiving. Wayne has (13,159). Largent had 13,089. ...
