NEW YORK, N. Billig New Balance KL574 .Y. - Admitting it was a dream come true, Terry Pegula and wife Kim were unanimously approved by NFL owners Wednesday as new owners of the Buffalo Bills.The Pegulas, who already own the NHLs Buffalo Sabres, expect the sale to be finalized by the end of the week.This is a significant step in us owning the team. Terry Pegula said. Theres a small matter of having to pay some money and well get that done.That payment would be for $1.4 billion.Longtime Bills owner Ralph Wilson died in March, prompting the sale.Buffalo sports fans were concerned the Bills could be moved out of state if purchased by another group. But the Pegulas are committed to the Buffalo area.If you asked me 10 years ago if I would own the Sabres and the Bills, I would have called you a liar, Pegula said. I just got a hell of a deal. I own the team.Kim Pegula is expected to have a high-ranking role with the Bills, working alongside current team president Russ Brandon.After the 31 other team owners voted in favour of the Pegulas, the couple received a warm ovation. Their purchase also was lauded by New York politicians.Today, all of western New York can yell out, Touchdown! because we have secured long-term owners for the Bills who are fully committed to keeping the team in Western New York for generations, Sen. Charles Schumer said. Over the course of these past few months, I spoke regularly with the NFL and with a number of owners and conveyed my belief that the Pegulas, with their Buffalo roots, were fully committed to the Bills future in western New York and the right pair to carry on Ralph Wilsons legacy. The owners have made an excellent decision in unanimously approving the Pegulas ownership of the team, and I am confident Terry and Kim will be excellent stewards of this next chapter in Bills history.Terry Pegula has a net worth valued of over $4.6 billion, and made his fortune in the natural gas industry. In 2010, he completed a deal to sell a large portion of his company East Resources assets for $4.7 billion to Royal Dutch Shell.Pegula is from Carbondale, Pennsylvania, graduated from Penn State, and established his company in 1983 after receiving a $7,500 loan from his family and friends.The Bills were last valued by Forbes at $935 million, but their price was well above other recent sales. The Cleveland Browns were sold for close to $1.05 billion two years ago, and the Miami Dolphins sold for an NFL-record $1.1 billion in 2009. Their deal also included their stadium.NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman recently praised the Pegulas for their work with the Sabres.Terry and Kim Pegula have been terrific owners. Theyre passionate about sports, theyre committed to Western New York. And if you had to computer-generate new ownership for the Bills, you wouldnt do any better than the Pegulas, Bettman said.Theyve invested in the community. Theyre building a major complex across the street from the arena, harbour-side. They have devoted themselves, their energy, their resources, and havent held back at all. Theyre all in. If youre a fan of either the Sabres or the Bills, youre going to feel good about that.The Pegulas first met in Olean, New York, about a 90-minute drive south of Buffalo. Terry Pegula has been a longtime Sabres fan dating to the teams famed French Connection line in the 1970s, and he was a regular at Bills games in the 1990s.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Nike Free Run Billig . -- Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft. Nike Free 5.0 Herre Sort .com) - The Chicago White Sox and outfielder Melky Cabrera have reportedly agreed to a three-year contract.BALTIMORE – The Blue Jays won the game, 11-3, and the series, two out of three, at Camden Yards but it came at a price. Maicer Izturis, whod begun to morph into the Blue Jays starting second baseman thanks to a hot start offensively, sprained his left knee in a freak accident in the first inning. It happened as he was descending the dugout steps to the bat rack. Izturis has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. It was a freak accident and while the early diagnosis is a sprain, when Izturis explains it, hes expecting the worst. "Its in the knee, I felt it pop twice," said Izturis. "Now I feel pain. Its sore right now and Im worried about that." Izturis, off to a .286/.324/.314 start, will have an MRI on Monday in Minneapolis. Infielder Munenori Kawasaki has been called up from Buffalo. Meanwhile, Colby Rasmus left the game after scoring a run in the sixth inning. He says he tweaked his left hamstring while making a running catch on a Nick Markakis fly ball in the fifth. Rasmus doesnt believe its serious. "Just to make sure its nothing big and weve got an off day (Monday) and we were up in the game, so I decided to come out just to make sure everythings good," said Rasmus. If Rasmus is forced to miss games, the timing isnt good. Hes heating up at the plate with home runs in back-to-back games and a three-hit, three-RBI afternoon on Sunday. Rasmus home run in the first inning on Sunday left the park, literally, landing on Eutaw Street in front of the famous warehouse building in right field. It was the 78th home run to land on Eutaw Street in the history of Oriolee Park at Camden Yards, which is in its 23rd season. Nike Free 5.0 Dame Norge. Encarnacion feels relief Edwin Encarnacion broke out on Sunday with a three-hit game, which included his first two RBIs of the season. Did Edwin feel any relief? "Big time," said Encarnacion. Manager John Gibbons dropped Encarnacion to the fifth spot in the order, moving Adam Lind up to clean-up. "Just timing," said Encarnacion of his early season issues. "Hitting is about timing. When you have the timing, you can hit. I feel a lot better the last couple of games so I hope I continue to do that." Through 12 games, Encarnacion had been hitting only .174/.240/.261. Hes still looking for his first home run. Happ to join Jays in Minneapolis Left-hander J.A. Happ, who started the season on the disabled list with inflammation in his back, will rejoin the ballclub in time for the three-game series against the Twins. To make room for Happ on the active roster, catcher Erik Kratz was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo. Reyes and Janssen go to Florida While their teammates travel to chilly Minneapolis, Jose Reyes (hamstring) and Casey Janssen (abdominal strain) are headed to Dunedin to continue their respective rehabilitations. Reyes will play in an extended spring training game on Monday, which will allow him to lead off each inning. Hell then play for Single-A Dunedin on Tuesday. Janssen is expected to make an in-game appearance no later than Tuesday. The Blue Jays hope to have Reyes back for next weekends series in Cleveland. The timetable for Janssens return is less clear at the moment. Cheap China Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
