A Minnesota Vikings vice-president and his wife have donated $1 million to childrens cancer care. Puma Rihanna Nere e Argento .Kevin Warren, who handles legal affairs for the team, and wife Greta, have donated the money to the University of Minnesota Masonic Childrens Hospital to establish Carolyns Comforts. A childrens cancer emergency assistance fund designed to help families manage the difficulties that come with the diagnosis of cancer will be established.The fund honours Warrens late sister, Carolyn Elaine Warren-Knox, who died of brain cancer on Oct. 2. During his sisters long battle, Warren saw the challenges facing many cancer patients and their families throughout the care process.A diagnosis of cancer is extremely difficult to accept and work through, especially when it involves children, Warren said. Families should be able to focus entirely on the health and well-being of their child, and ideally not be burdened with the additional stress of financial issues. My sister often talked of the struggles facing cancer patients, especially children and their families, and how she wished she could help. As a family we hope this fund can make a positive impact.The fund will provide emergency financial assistance to pediatric families for patients with cancer and other related life-threating disease.With their incredible gift, our patients and families who may be facing financial challenges along with health challenges can focus on their care and healing, physician-in-chief Dr. Joseph Neglia of the University of Minnesota Masonic Childrens Hospital said of the Warrens.POTTY MOUTH: Rex Ryan would like to watch a football game without so much naughty language.Hear that, Tom Brady?Ryan, the New York Jets coach, feigned disbelief Wednesday while talking about how he checked out a few TV copies of the New England Patriots recent games in preparation for their meeting Sunday at MetLife Stadium. There was a frustrated Brady on the screen blurting profanities during the Patriots game against the Green Bay Packers on Nov. 30.To be honest with you, I couldnt watch all of the game, said Ryan, trying to keep a straight face. I was offended by the language I saw.The TV broadcast caught Brady on the sideline, standing by himself, cursing repeatedly. Some viewers even contacted the Federal Communications Commission because of the not-so-family-friendly outburst.I was like, Wow, Ryan said sarcastically. Im thinking, Boy, that fine has to be really hefty because thats one, two, three, four, five of those bad boys, I think. So, Im not sure what that is, but I couldnt even get through the game.Ryan knows bad language when he sees it, of course. He has been twice fined for cursing at fans, and was docked $100,000 by the NFL earlier this season after he shouted an expletive while walking off the field after beating the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ryan also said his fair share of expletives during the Jets appearance on HBOs Hard Knocks in 2010.But as far as anyone knows, Brady hasnt been fined for his foul mouth.Well, quite honestly, we dont know, Ryan said. He might very well have had to cut a check or two. Were not sure. Hey, we all know I shouldnt have done it. I recognize that.SEATTLE HANGOVER: There is quite the hangover the Seattle Seahawks are leaving with their opponents. Not only are the Seahawks on a roll, having won seven of their last eight games, but the teams they have played during that stretch are not recovering well.Starting with St. Louis, the past eight Seattle opponents have all lost the following week. That might just be a coincidence, but after reaching eight straight, that starts to become a trend.I think were a physical team and have a lot of physical people on the defence and physical on the offence, Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett said.There have been some good teams that Seahawks opponents have been asked to play a week later, too. Oakland was routed by Denver a week after getting beaten in Seattle. After beating the Seahawks at home, St. Louis had to go to Kansas City and lost 34-7.Philadelphia was stymied by the Seahawks, then lost control of the NFC East race by losing to Dallas.There were also games in which it appeared playing Seattle had a lasting effect. Carolina lost at home to New Orleans. Arizona was beaten at Atlanta. And both Kansas City and San Francisco lost to lowly Oakland.BAD COMMUNICATING: Roger Goodell has made a Top Ten list he could do without.Decker Communications 19th annual list of Top Ten Best and Worst Communicators of 2014 has such sports notables as Derek Jeter and Adam Silver on the best side. On the worst: Donald Sterling, Stephen A. Smith and Goodell.Why the NFL commissioner, who also was on the list in 2011 — the year the league locked out the players?Decker Communications found Goodell meek and ineffective, appears dismissive, disconnected and insincere rather than action-oriented or timely.As the face of the NFL, just as with any executive or leader at any company, every touch point matters. This year, Goodell blew it again, said Ben Decker, CEO of Decker Communications, a leading business communications training and consulting firm.In contrast, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver communicates with a strong point of view and bridges the needs of the owners with the desires of his fans.The full list is available at www.decker.com___AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner and Sports Writers Tim Booth and Dennis Waszak Jr., contributed to this notebook.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Yeezy Boost 350 Nere e Bianche . - Tom Brady and the Patriots routed the Bengals and quieted the doubters.

This years event will see all three champions in Canadian Tire Series history take to the third-mile Saskatoon oval. Two-time Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 winner Scott Steckly is a three-time titlist while D.J. Kennington and Andrew Ranger have earned two crowns apiece. Kennington is also a two-time winner at ACMS, but Ranger will be looking for his first win there after emerging triumphant in each of the two previous races this year. If having every champion in series history wasnt enough, there will be plenty of other worthy contenders for the Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 trophy. Jason Hathaway has won three of the last five Canadian Tire Series oval races and season co-points leader J.R. Fitzpatrick is a threat every time out. Additionally, Canadian open-wheel racing standout Alex Tagliani will make his first ACMS appearance to add to the events star power. All told, the winners of 80-percent of the 91 all-time Canadian Tire Series races will be in Saskatoon on Wednesday. The Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 will be the second half of the Canadian Tire Series annual western swing. This years jaunt began at Albertas Edmonton International Raceway last Friday. A second event in six days is now on tap with the series lone trip to Saskatchewan this season. Fast Facts: The Race:  The sixth annual Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 will be the fifth of 11 events on the 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 schedule, and the lone trip to Saskatchewan and Auto Clearing Motor Speedway. The Procedure:  The maximum starting field is 24 cars, including provisionals. The first 21 cars will have secured starting positions through two-lap time trials while the remaining three spots will be awarded through the provisional process. The race is scheduled for 250 laps (83.25 miles). The Track:  Auto Clearing Motor Speedway is a .333-mile oval with graduated banking. Saskatoon Stock Car Racing Association Ltd. originated from the Saskatoon Stock Car Racing Club that was formed in 1954. Racing in Saskatoon began at the 8th Street Racing Oval. In 1970, as a result of city expansion, stock-car racing moved to the current Prairieland Exhibition at Bridge City Raceway. In 1999, the City of Saskatoon expanded once again which paved the way for a new track, Auto Clearing Motor Speedway, to be built. Construction of the new track began in April 2005. Pole Winners:  The first five Saskatoon races have produced three different pole winners. J.R. Fitzpatrick and D.J. Kennington have two apiece while Don Thompson Jr. scored the inaugural event pole in 2009. Fitzpatrick set the track qualifying record at 14.665 seconds (81.801 mph) in 2012. Race Winners:  Kennington and Scott Steckly lead the way with two wins apiece while Pete Shepherd III also has a vicctory. Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Italia. Steckly won the inaugural race and reached ACMS Victory Lane again last year. Saskatoon Race Notes: Rangers Records: With his 19th career race win last week at Edmonton International Raceway, and his 14th career pole the week before that at Circuit ICAR, Andrew Ranger is tied for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 all-time lead in both categories. Ranger now shares the victories record with new teammate D.J. Kennington and the poles mark is split with J.R. Fitzpatrick, who was the top qualifier last year at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway. Fitzpatrick, Dumoulin Also Tied at the Top:  The 2014 season is now more than one-third complete and the competition is so close that theres actually a tie between Fitzpatrick and L.P. Dumoulin atop the championship standings. Both drivers have 162 tallies, 12 ahead of Ranger in third. Its only 18 points back to Jason Hathaway in fifth, with D.J. Kennington sitting fourth. Steckly Looks to Defend ACMS Win:  Defending Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 winner Scott Steckly could use another victory this week at Auto Clearing to bolster his series championship defense. The three-time titlist has faced adversity through for races this season, but is hanging in there in sixth place in the standings, 30 points back of the leaders. A DNF in the season opener at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park had Steckly in an early hole but he followed with a pair of top fives. Last week at Edmonton he was two laps down at one point and rallied to an eighth-place finish. Halfway Through Four-Race Grouping:  The Canadian Tire series embarked on an aggressive bundle of four events in a 21-day span starting with Circuit ICAR on July 6. The second date came last Friday, July 11 at Edmonton and up next week be Wednesdays Velocity Prairie Thunder 250. The busy stretch will conclude on July 26 at Autodrome St. Eustache. Last Time Out:  Edmonton The fourth race of the 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 was contested on July 11 at Edmonton International Raceway in Wetaskiwin, Alberta. Here are some highlights from the Alberta Has Energy 300: - Andrew Ranger took the checkered flag for the second week in a row, and a record-tying 19th time overall. It was his first oval track win since 2009, the same year he last posted back-to-back victories.- A two-time road course winner, L.P. Dumoulin recorded his best finish in 21 career oval races with a runner-up effort.- Prior to the race Alex Tagliani earned his first career oval track pole, and fifth overall. He led a career-high 268 laps before a late-race accident.- It was the first race in series history at the Wetaskiwin oval.
