USA claim Presidents Cup

USA claim Presidents Cup

The top five teams in the standings after the regular season make the playoffs, and the only club that’s not in contention is last-place Chivas USA (6-17-8), which the Galaxy plays Sunday at StubHub Center. Entering Saturday’s play, the Galaxy (13-11-6) was tied with the Colorado Rapids for fourth place with 45 points. That was only six points behind the two teams tied for first place, Real Salt Lake and the Seattle Sounders, and four points behind the third-place Portland Timbers. And the San Jose Earthquakes , Vancouver Whitecaps and FC Dallas were five points or less behind the Galaxy and Colorado. With a win worth three points to each club, the standings could change quickly in the next few weeks. As Galaxy midfielder Marcelo Sarvas told the team’s website last week, “We have to get points because we’re very close to [playoff] heaven and yet very close to hell.” This will be the Galaxy’s third and final game of the regular season against Chivas USA whose home venue also is StubHub Center in what’s dubbed the SuperClasico series. The Galaxy is the designated home team for this 2 p.m. game (televised on Time Warner Cable SportsNet and UniMas, and carried on AM radio at 1150 and 1330). After a 3-0 win over San Jose on Aug. 31, the Galaxy went all September without a victory. The team lost to Colorado and Portland and settled for ties with D.C. United and Seattle. The key for the Galaxy is having both of its star forwards, Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane , in the game at the same time. That’s often not been the case this year, either because they were hurt or they were playing for their national teams, but they’re expected to play together Sunday.

With its intricate storytelling, diverse characters and authentic locations, the series continues to be a cornerstone in our lineup of USAs original signature dramas. The renewal comes mere weeks before Covert Affairs returns for the second half of its fourth season, which wrapped its summer run in mid-September. It was one of summers top 10 cable scripted shows, with nearly 4 million viewers. When Covert Affairs returns for the remaining six episodes, co-creatorsMatt Corman and Chris Ordpromise a “totally different show” following CIA agent Annie Walker’s (Piper Perabo) decision to fake her own death and go deep undercover in her continued mission to topple Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin). “This change that we see in Annie at the end [of the finale] is a seismic one and a major one,”Corman told THR in September . “It’s going to launch us into a back six where we see a totally different Annie and a totally different show, and we hope people enjoy it.” “Every episode and every script we’ve been doing is exciting because we get to see a whole new side to Annie and how she operates, and the choices she’s forced to make are a whole new chapter. She’s never been faced with many of these challenges and she doesn’t have the support system to help her. It’s very interesting how she copes with this new paradigm,” Ord told THR. Christopher Gorham, Peter Gallagher, Kari Matchett and Hill Harper also star in the Universal Cable Productions series fromCormanandOrd, who are executive producers along withDoug Liman, David Bartis, Gene KleinandStephen Kay. Gorham will direct the fourth episode of the remaining half of the season. International locations featured this season include Medellin, Rome, Vienna, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Grand Bahama Island and Geneva. Covert Affairs’ renewal comes as USA preps its big original comedy push following the syndication debut of Modern Family, and the return of veteran drama White Collar later this month. Suits is set to return for the back half of season three in early 2014, with Royal Pains already renewed for season six, long-running comedy Psychreturning for season eight and rookie Gracelandpicked up for a sophomore run.The fate of Necessary Roughnesshas not yet been determined.

Covert Affairs Chris Gorham Piper Perabo - H 2013

Pic: Getty Images The USA have claimed victory over the Internationals in the Presidents Cup as many predicted they would, surviving a small scare before notching up an 18.5-15.5 result at Muirfield Village Golf Club. Coming back early Sunday to finish four rain-affected incomplete foursomes matches, the Internationals had a chance to stick close to the USA if they could muster the majority of points, but they imploded instead. Having led in all five matches of the final session at a time on Saturday afternoon, the visitors ended up winning just one, losing three and scratching out a half. It put them in a deep hole, six points down at 14-8 ensuring it would take 10 wins from 12 singles matches to win. Nick Price’s team fought tooth and nail but managed just seven wins. When Tiger Woods closed out a 1up win over South African Richard Sterne the competition was clinched, giving the USA a fifth straight Presidents Cup, and their eighth outright win in 10 attempts. The Internationals had closed to within three points with just three matches remaining before Woods ensured there would be no miracle at Muirfield for the visitors. Australian Jason Day tried to spark a comeback by closing out his match against Brandt Snedeker quickly, surging to a 4up lead through six holes and eventually winning 6 and 4. “I knew it would take a big push from the Internationals to win but I just wanted to finish my second Presidents Cup with a bang,” Day said. “I’ve been playing great golf the whole week, and I just wish it was a little bit closer.” Canadian Graham DeLaet kept the roll going with a 1up win over Jordan Spieth, iced with a hole out birdie from the bunker on the 18th. But Japanese 21-year-old young gun Hideki Matsuyama couldn’t pull off an upset against Hunter Mahan, losing 3 and 2, and Zimbabwe’s Brendon de Jonge fell 4 and 3 to recent PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner. When South African Branden Grace fell 4 and 2 to former Masters champion Zach Johnson it guaranteed the USA a tie at worst. Australian Adam Scott defeated Bill Haas 2 and 1 and South African Ernie Els took out Steve Stricker to keep the faintest International hopes alive. When Aussie Marc Leishman drained a 15-foot putt from the fringe on 18 to beat Matt Kuchar 1up, and Charl Schwartzel closed out Keegan Bradley 2 and 1 a whiff of a miracle tie, and a share of the cup, was still in the air.
