    CALGARY -- Canadas luge team is for sale again. Larry Andersen Phillies Jersey . The sliders slapped "For Sale" stickers on their helmets to attract a corporate sponsor just a few months before the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. The strategy worked, but that sponsorship money has run out with the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, on the horizon. Alex Gough, Sam Edney and the rest of the luge team got out their "For Sale" decals and signs again. They invited the media Tuesday for their first training runs of the season at Canada Olympic Park. "Countries like Germany have such a huge pool of athletes and the corporate backing we havent been able to secure," Gough said. "Our previous sponsor gave us that and gave us that edge. Now that partnership has ended, we really need someone else to step up. "It worked last time so we figured wed give the "For Sale" thing another try." The difference between Canadas luge team pre-2010 and pre-2014 is that it is capable of winning the countrys first Olympic medal in the sport in Sochi. Prior to 2010, luge was the weakest of Canadian sliding sports behind bobsled and skeleton. Gough, a 26-year-old Calgarian, has broken up German domination of womens singles with a pair of World Cup victories, nine other World Cup medals and two world championship bronze medals over the last four years. The team relay -- which will makes its Olympic debut in February -- is also fertile ground to produce a Canadian medal. Gough, Edney and the mens doubles team of Tristan Walker and Justin Snith, all from Calgary, won silver at this years world championship and bronze in 2012. "For the first time ever, were going to be poised to win a medal," said Tim Farstad, executive director of the Canadian Luge Association. "I think it would be great for a sponsor to come along for the ride." The luge team raced toboggans down a snowy Calgary hill wearing their "For Sale" stickers in February 2009. Gough now called that a "creative stunt." Within a day, the team was contacted by the investment company Fast Track Capital and a five-year deal worth just over $1 million was reached. However, the company was unable to fulfil the final year of its commitment. A former luger and president of an oil and gas company awarded cash bonuses to athletes for podium and top-10 finishes for two years after the 2010 Games, but those incentives no longer exist. The luge team will get $973,000 in funding in 2013-14 from Own The Podium, the organization that directs taxpayer dollars to national sports federations. In the four years between 2010 and 2014, OTP will have directed $3.2 million to the luge team. OTP money goes to athletes who have demonstrated Olympic and world championship medal potential. Top sliders like Gough and Edney have personal sponsorships, but the CLA needs a team sponsor to fund the next generation of sliders. "Sponsorship money filled the gaps and voids between the national team, junior national team and all the way down to grassroots programs," Edney explained. "We need that money to bring those athletes up and get them to the world level and get them to the podium." The lugers arent the only Canadian team to lose a title sponsor post-2010. Canada Post ended its relationship with the freestyle team this year. The bobsled and skeleton teams have been without a title sponsor since 2011 when its contract with credit card company Visa expired. General Motors left Alpine Canada, but the organization brought Audi on board in 2011. "I know its tough out there," Farstad said. "We dont expect to be treated any different than anybody else. I know the big sports have lost sponsors. For us, it was just bad luck, Id say. "Its not demoralizing. Were in the best situation weve ever been as a sport, so Im hopeful well find a partner out there." Canadas luge team is currently training in Calgary before heading to a training camp in Whistler. The World Cup season opens Nov. 16-17 in Lillehammer, Norway. The Canadian stop on the circuit is Dec. 6-7 in Whistler. The luge competition at the 2014 Games starts Feb. 8 with mens singles and concludes Feb. 13 with the team relay. Custom Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys .

LOUIS -- Known for his game-managing and defensive skills, Yadier Molina made another statement with his bat. http://www.philliesbaseballproshop.com/pete-rose-phillies-jersey/ .Chanathip Songkrasin opened the scoring in the sixth minute before Kroekrit found the target twice in the 57th and four minutes from fulltime.Vietnam and Malaysia play their second leg on Thursday. Vietnam won the first leg 2-1.The New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens have enjoyed more playoff success than all other teams over the last 15 years. While New England has also been the leagues most dominant home team in the same span, that hasnt necessarily meant much against Baltimore in the postseason. New England hosts Baltimore in a divisional matchup Saturday as these teams continue what has developed into one of the NFLs best playoff rivalries in recent memory. Watch live coverage on CTV NOW. You can also listen to the game on TSN Radio 1050 in Toronto and TSN Radio 1260 in Edmonton. The Patriots (12-4) lead all teams with an 18-8 playoff record since 2000, while Baltimore (11-6) is second at 15-7. Their mirrored success has led to numerous run-ins, and Saturday marks their fourth postseason meeting in six years. Theres experience against this team, Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said. We know a lot of their players and some of their schemes, but I think each time weve played them our team has been different, their team has been different. In the same time frame, New Englands 109 home wins in are at least 14 more than the second-most successful team. That includes a 12-3 postseason record. The Patriots, who are coming off a first-round bye for the fifth consecutive season, have home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs as they seek their first Super Bowl appearance in three years. They reached the leagues championship game two of the last three times they claimed the conferences top seed. Weve put ourselves in a good position, said Tom Brady, whose 18 playoff wins are the most in league history. Weve just got to take advantage of it. Though New England leads the all-time series 8-3, two of its three home playoff losses since 2000 have come in three meetings with Baltimore. The Ravens outscored the Patriots 21-0 in the second half of a 28-13 AFC championship game victory two years ago. Joe Flacco threw three touchdown passes while New England scored one TD on four red-zone possessions, with Brady being intercepted on each of his last two drives. Brady also threw two picks in the previous years AFC title game, but ran in the go-ahead touchdown in a 23-20 victory. Baltimore scored 24 first-quarter points, ran the ball 52 times and intercepted Brady three times in a 33-14 wild-card win following the 2009 season. These teams are vastly different in some respects from those meetings, however. The top two receivers from each club in the last matchup - Anquan Boldin and Dennis Pitta for Baltimore and Aaron Hernandez and Wes Welker for New England - aare not around. Chuck Klein Phillies Jersey. Ray Rice, who ran for 274 yards and three TDs in the three postseason meetings, is no longer with the Ravens. Cary Williams and Dannell Ellerbe are also gone after picking off Brady in the most recent playoff matchup. Given the differences, coach John Harbaugh downplayed Baltimores success in the postseason series. I dont think it really matters, he told the teams official website. Its a new game. Really, the past, the future, its just whoever plays best Saturday afternoon is going to be the team that wins the game. The Ravens are one of two teams, along with Carolina, with winning playoff road records. Baltimore is 10-5, tied with Green Bay for the most wins in league history despite playing at least two fewer games than all teams with seven or more such victories. Last weeks 30-17 victory in Pittsburgh was its third straight road playoff win. Harbaugh is 7-4, tied with Tom Coughlin and Tom Landry for the most road postseason wins in league history. I really dont have an explanation for that other than the fact that we played well, Harbaugh said. Youve got to play well on the road, obviously, to have a chance to win. Flaccos seven road playoff wins are a record. He has thrown for 17 TDs with one interception while winning six of his last seven postseason games and posted a 117.2 passer rating in Baltimores run to the 2012 title. He cashed in the following offseason with a six-year, $120.6 million deal. Harbaugh called Flacco the best quarterback in football after he was 18 of 29 for 259 yards and two TDs against the Steelers. He ranked 16th this season in terms of passer rating, but ranks 12th all-time in the playoffs. At the end of the day it doesnt really matter what everybody wants to think, Flacco said. It obviously means a lot for a head coach to stand up in front of everybody in the whole world and say those kind of things. Whether it really means anything, I dont know. But it definitely means a lot to me. New England coach Bill Belichick can tie Landry for the most playoff wins with his 20th, while Bradys 18 postseason wins lead all quarterbacks. Brady has thrown seven TDs with five interceptions while splitting his last six playoff games, however. He was 8 of 16 for 80 yards while playing only the first half in a Week 17 loss to Buffalo. The Patriots had already clinched home field. I dont think thats really useful, Brady said of recent playoff performances. We cant change what has happened. You just have to move forward and you have to think about the things that weve done really well this year.
