Kharis Ralph, who had a long career in ice dance with Asher Hill, has retired from skating. Asics Gel Lyte III Black . The duo trained at the Scarborough Figure Skating Clubs Ice Dance Elite with coaches Carol Lane and Juris Razgulajevs. They competed at one ISU World Figure Skating Championships, finishing 13th at the 2012 event in Nice, France, and were sixth at this years Canadian Tire National Skating Championships. "It has been both a privilege and a challenge to be on the National Team for the last five years and I am grateful for the opportunity," said Ralph. "I would like to thank Skate Canada for all the support through the years, and wish everyone well for the future." "For eight years Kharis and Asher were mainstays on the international scene. Their hard work and determination resulted in them being one of very few teams to have ever represented Canada at both a junior and a senior world championship", said Mike Slipchuk, High Performance Director, Skate Canada. "Kharis positive attitude and charismatic personality made her a role model for other skaters and she will be truly missed." Ralphs immediate plans include finishing her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto and then to pursue graduate studies. The 22-year-old Toronto native hopes to stay involved in the sport, possibly in the area of judging or as a technical specialist. Hill is currently looking for a new partner and hopes to continue competing in ice dance.

Asics Gel Nimbus 17 Ireland . Cabrera is hitting .218 with three homers and 16 RBI in 80 games this season. The Padres recalled second baseman Brooks Conrad from Triple-A El Paso to replace Cabrera on the roster. . Johnson shared an update after his surgery Tuesday on Twitter. He also wrote, "now lets get on the grind." The running back told The Tennessean he was having surgery in Pensacola, Fla.Brian Hoyer or Johnny Manziel? The long term answer is obvious, and there will be plenty of season previews in the future to dissect and analyze Johnny Manziels game, but for now the former Heisman Trophy winner and 22nd overall draft pick will start the year as a backup QB. In a typical year where a team invests a high draft pick on a quarterback, the combination of that team not having anyone better on the roster and the promise of the new guy leads to an easy decision for coaches, to go with the promise and start the rookie right out of the gate. But while Manziel certainly fits the role of QB with potential, the Browns may still have a better option in holdover Brian Hoyer. The 28-year-old journeyman QB started three games for the Browns last year, after the team mercifully gave up on the Brandon Weeden experiment and before he was lost for the year with a knee injury. In Hoyers three starts, he threw for 615 yards and five touchdowns to three interceptions, completing nearly 60 percent of his passes. Perhaps more importantly, Hoyers three starts accounted for three of the teams four wins on the season. In a perfect world, the undrafted free agent would have escaped Kiko Alonsos tackle and played out the rest of the year. In that scenario the Browns would have a better idea if Hoyer is a legit talent or just a mediocre QB who got injured before he could come back down to earth from his hot streak. Now ex-general manager Michael Lombardi was Hoyers biggest fan and the new regime drafted Manziel in the first round for a reason, but that doesnt mean they wont employ the veteran at least as a stop-gap. “I would say its a tall task, for a couple reasons,” head coach Mike Pettine told The Chronicle-Telegram of Manziels chances of starting Week 1. “One, hes a rookie coming in learning the system. Hes learning something thats completely new to him, so hes got all new verbiage and reads and that type of thing working against him.” “And then the guy (Hoyer) hes competing with is an NFL veteran whos learned from one of the best in the game, whos very prepared, very focused. Its a very true statement, it will be difficult.” Still, Manziel is no doubt the future, and unless the Browwns start 3-0 under Hoyer the sooner the better for Browns fans. Asics Gel Lyte Speed. Manziel has been good in camp, slowly stealing first-team reps from Hoyer, and putting up a 30-59 for 296 yards and two touchdowns line in the preseason. Most believe Manziels time will come midway through the season, probably around the same time the Jacksonville Jaguars start Blake Bortles and maybe even when the Oakland Raiders turn to Derek Carr. It wont be until then that the rookie QB race is on and all eyes will be on Manziel, and not just Monday to Saturday. Notes Whether its Hoyer or Manziel, either would have benefited from the presence of receiver Josh Gordon, who is arguably a top three pass catcher in the league. But it looks like thats not going to be the case. Gordon, who led the league in receiving yards with 1,646 last year, will be suspended for multiple marijuana busts. The Browns conducted the longest head coaching search of the off-season this year, after firing Rod Chudzinski after just one season. Mike Pettine may end up being a solid choice, but it would be hard for the Browns to argue he was there first choice. After seeing a number of candidates accept other positions, or stay in their current situations, Pettine seemed closer to a leftover hire than a coach in demand. While Manziel dominated all the headlines in early May, he was only the second player taken by the Browns after CB Justin Gilbert was nabbed with the eighth overall pick. Gilbert, like high second round pick Joel Bitonio, an offensive tackle out of Nevada, arent nearly as flashy as Manziel but should be stable talents and building blocks for the Browns for years to come. Two of the Browns big free agent signings are NFL talents for sure, but may not be as good as the guy theyre tasked with replacing. After releasing longtime Browns linebacker DQwell Jackson, Cleveland signed former Arizona Cardinals LB Karlos Dansby and once safety T.J. Ward left via free agency, the Browns grabbed the next best safety on the market in Donte Whitner. Two other intriguing free agent signings were RB Ben Tate and WR Andrew Hawkins. Each have shown flashes of talent in their limited roles before signing on for bigger roles in Cleveland.
