CHICAGO -- After a difficult day of travel to the World Series, Albina Maddon was met by police at Chicago OHare International Airport. Nike Roshe Two Flyknit .First of all, they had to tell her shes not being arrested, her son, Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon, said Saturday. Beanie, being from Hazleton, Polish Catholic, she would have imagined the worst first. They always do.The 83-year-old Albina planned to travel from her home south of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, to attend Game 3 on Friday night. A fire aboard American Airlines Flight 383 from Chicago to Miami caused extensive delays.Maddons mom had driven two hours to Philadelphia International Airport, and her delayed flight didnt leave until about 90 minutes before game time. Maddon spoke with Cubs traveling secretary Vijay Tekchandani, and they contacted the police.My niece and nephew, Michael and Christine, were also part of the party, the manager said. So I guess they threw them in the back there and just rushed them on in, and got her up to the will-call window, escorted her in. And they got there by the second inning.Maddon said his mom is retired from Hazletons Third Base Luncheonette, a restaurant owned by the Maddon family.She goes up there for her morning coffee. Its a great conversation for maybe at least the next two years, Joe Maddon said. Shes there till midnight after the game. I see her in the parking lot for the first time. Gets back at 1 oclock, whatever, after going all day, and then shes going to be here tonight. God bless her. Those tough Polish ladies, man. I grew up with them. Theyre awesome. They can really clean. They can cook, and shes the best mom ever. Nike Roshe One Hyperfuse . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. Nike Roshe One DMB . LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. . LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. TORONTO -- It took nearly one full hour and a handful of wild turns to get there, but SmackDown Live was the last team standing on Sunday in a battle for brand supremacy against Raw at WWE Survivor Series.?Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt proved to be the sole survivors in a 5-on-5 mens traditional Survivor Series match at Air Canada Centre, joining teammates AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose and Shane McMahon in a victory over Raws Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman.?Among the SmackDown Live faithful, WWE world champion Styles received far and away the biggest reaction, while Jericho and WWE Universal champion Owens were welcomed with almost deafening cheers from their home crowd in Canada.Owens was the clear choice to start for Raw, and after a bit of a debate, it became a battle of world champions, as Styles of SmackDown stepped into the ring across from him. It quickly broke down into an exchange of punches in the middle of the ring, but with this being such an early stage of the match and so much time to work with, there wasnt seemingly much at stake.The crowd erupted after Owens tagged in his best friend Jericho (and hugged him in the ring to boot), and everything Jericho did was met with raucous applause. We then got a brief tease of Rollins versus Styles before he tagged out to set up a Shield reunion of sorts between Rollins and Ambrose that went to a stalemate.That was the case for much of the early stages of this match, with everyone except the current and former members of The Wyatt Family getting into the mix. It was all about setting the tone and pace, but a mid-ring confrontation and a complete breakdown started the build to the more eventful parts of the match -- highlighted by Owens top-rope Swanton onto all of his fellow competitors and teammates.Teammates (and SmackDown rivals) Styles and Ambrose threw down in the middle of the ring, failing to put the team above themselves, and the result was a running powerslam from Braun Strowman on Ambrose for the first elimination of the night, which temporarily deprived fans of a true Shield reunion in the ring. Wyatt briefly grabbed a psychological hold on Strowman -- his former Wyatt Family prodigy -- causing him to grab Jericho by the throat. But any indications of a return to the Wyatt Family soon faded.Orton hit another highlight-reel moment with an RKO (out of nowhere) on Strowman onto a table, and then he and Wyatt laid Strowman down onto it for a signature Shane McMahon moment -- a flying elbow from the top rope onto Strowman, causing the table to break. The impact of the move?ultimately led to Strowmans count-out elimination, which was aided by SmackDown mascot James Ellsworth climbing under the ring and holding Strowmans feet. An angry Strowman sought instant revenge by throwing Ellsworth off the stage at the top of the ramp and through a table of his own.Things slowed down again during the four-on-four sequence, with McMahon taking the bulk of the beating. A seemingly innocuous run by Styles to attack Owens led the Universall champion to hit Styles with The List, followed by a pop-up powerbomb. Nike Roshe One Cheap. The action led Owens to be eliminated by disqualification and caused Jericho to lose his mind trying to re-assemble the remnants of his precious List. This distraction kept Jerichos attention long enough to be pinned following another RKO. In the blink of an eye, it was down to Rollins and Reigns against four members of Team SmackDown.The sudden loss of both Canadians in the match took something out of this Toronto crowd, and it didnt recover fully until they got a chance to wholeheartedly boo Reigns at every possible turn. A temporary distraction nearly caused McMahon to eat a spear from Reigns. Instead, McMahon set Reigns up for a Coast-2-Coast. But Reigns leaped up to catch McMahon with a flying spear in a move that looked like it should have led to a three-count, but with McMahon seemingly knocked out cold, his shoulder wasnt flush on the mat. Moments later he was deemed eliminated by knockout as the referee motioned for medical attention, taking something away from the impact of the moment as the crowd worried about McMahons health.With McMahon carried to the back, the match resumed 3-on-2, but not without the crowd blaming Reigns for McMahons injury with a loud chant. In fact, it took Rollins superplex-Falcon Arrow combination for them to properly get back into the match. Ambrose got his revenge from earlier in the match by running back out and striking down Styles. As security went to go break it up, we got a true Shield reunion as Reigns and Rollins convinced Ambrose to do the first Shield triple powerbomb with all three men on the same page (there was one other instance, during a Fatal 4-Way match for the WWE championship on Orton, while Rollins was still part of the Authority) since their breakup almost two-and-a-half years ago. Rollins subsequently pinned Styles in the middle of the ring.With two members of each team remaining, a Shield versus Wyatt Family showdown broke out for the remainder of the match, with Luke Harper making an appearance of his own. The crowd was largely still conflicted -- excited about a temporary Shield reunion, but upset about the way the story around it went down. Harper took out Reigns, but Rollins neutralized Harper with a flip over the top rope.Rollins went for a springboard dive, when Orton hit his third elimination-inducing RKO of the match -- this time with Rollins already in mid-air. It was very much a three-on-one effort from there, and while Reigns managed to take out Harper on the outside, Orton cemented his status within The Wyatt Family when he shoved Wyatt out of the way and absorbed a spear. Wyatt hit a Sister Abigail on Reigns for the three-count, sealing Team SmackDowns win and finally earning a signature career victory after a seemingly endless run of defeats in high-profile contests.For full match recaps and ratings from Survivor Series, click here. Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
