RIO DE JANEIRO -- Jill Rankin Schneider no longer has to wonder what its like being at the Olympics, even if shell never know the feeling of actually competing in the games. Shea Theodore Jersey .She was a member of the second U.S. Olympic womens basketball team. But when America boycotted the 1980 Moscow Games, the Olympic window for Schneider -- and many others -- closed.Now Schneider is at the Rio de Janeiro Games working with FIBA thanks to an assist from USA Basketball.This has really been a great experience, Schneider said Sunday after the U.S. routed China 105-62 in womens basketball.FIBA always has someone at each Olympics as an observer who compiles a report for the competition committee. With men and women playing games at separate arenas through the first nine days at the Rio Games, USA Basketball got a call looking for a recommendation.Carol Callan, USA Basketballs director of the national womens team, thought of Schneider.Jill has been doing a lot for us, Callan said. She was a youth 17 national team coach, an Olympian and sort of a nice twist to all of this of course is she was an Olympian when the boycott occurred. So when we asked her to go, it just seemed like a special fit because it gave her an opportunity that she didnt have before.Schneider had never attended the Olympics. Not because of any grudge involving the 1980 boycott. The games simply seemed from another world to Schneider.It was like the Olympics were this huge event you watched on TV, said Schneider. I dont know if I ever envisioned myself being at one.That doesnt mean Schneider, now 58, has completely moved past any bitterness from 1980.Every Summer Olympics, its almost like you relive it because people ask about it, Schneider said. Newspapers at home, TV at home, they always want to talk about it and ask about it and just naturally you think about it. What it wouldve been like to be at the opening ceremonies? What it wouldve been like to really play at the Olympics.Schneider helped the University of Tennessee reach the AIAW national championship game, but after the boycott, she turned to coaching. She was inducted into the Womens Basketball Hall of Fame in 2008 and has coached at Lubbock-Monterey High School in Texas since 1998. She also teaches college algebra.Schneider has been at every womens basketball game in group play and will be at every game in the medal round. She also has gotten to see some rugby sevens, equestrian and shooting near the basketball arena.She also stood for The Star-Spangled Banner at five games won by the Americans, though just off the edge of the court itself.Its kind of nice to be here and get a sense of what it wouldve been like, Schneider said. Of course, it was how many years ago? It was 1980, but its always just something, that lingering kind of disappointment I didnt get to experience it as a player.---Online:AP Summer Games website: http://summergames.ap.org/ Nate Schmidt Jersey . Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured. Collaros also started Torontos 23-20 regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks to play that day. Paul Stastny Jersey . JOHNS, N. https://www.cheapgoldenknights.com/456n-...en-knights.html . -- Anaheim Ducks captain and leading scorer Ryan Getzlaf has been scratched from Sunday nights game against the Vancouver Canucks because of an upper-body injury. BOSTON -- Clay Buchholz takes another stab at trying to find the form that made him a two-time All-Star when he faces the Los Angeles Angels in the second game of a three-game series Saturday night.Hector Santiago starts for the last-place Angels, who come in with 10 losses in their last 11 games after falling 5-4 at Fenway Park on Friday night.Exiled to the bullpen last month, Buchholz returned to the rotation because the team had no one else to start in his place -- and he showed decent stuff out of the pen. In two starts since returning, he is 0-2, having allowed eight runs (seven earned) and 11 hits in 10 1/3 innings.In both cases, the first inning was the problem for Buchholz (3-8, 5.90 ERA). The first start opened with a home run, a double and two runs in the first. Last Sunday at Texas, the first six batters reached, five on hits, in a three-run first.Theres been an inning inside of each game where its probably proved to be the difference, Boston manager John Farrell said before Friday nights series opener. Hell settle in for a stretch of innings, a consecutive number of at-bats where hes been very effective, but the ability to go out and execute from Pitch 1 is (of) utmost importance.Buchholz is 6-4 with a 4.83 in 12 career starts against the Angels, who have hit .285 against him over the years. Albert Pujols is 6-for-15 with a home run and Mike Trout 6-for-16 with two homers.Santiago (4-4, 5.27 ERA) won just one of his past eight starts, but he has pitched well in two of the last three. After allowing just five hits aand two runs in 12 1/3 innings over his previous two starts, he gave up six runs in seven hits in six innings against the Oakland Athletics his last time out -- Santiago getting a no-decision Sunday in a game the Angels won 7-6. Vegas Golden Knights Pro Shop. He is 1/3 with a 3.56 ERA in six career games, five starts, against the Red Sox. He is 0-2 with a 6.08 ERA in three appearances, two starts, at Fenway Park. Santiago started twice against Boston last season, going 1-1 with a 3.09 ERA.He has only allowed one home run in 30 1/3 career innings against Boston, and none of the current Red Sox hitters have taken him deep. Xander Bogaerts is 5-for-8, but Mookie Betts is 0-for-6, Hanley Ramirez 1-for-9 and David Ortiz 3-for-11.Santiago tied for the American League lead by allowing 29 home runs last season, and he yielded his 16th and 17th of this season, including a grand slam by Coco Crisp, in his last start, an outing that saw him walk four and throw 116 pitches in his six innings.My stuff was great besides the four walks, Santiago said after that game. Some of the guys I walked are usually aggressive and swinging at those pitches, but all-around I thought it was a good game. It was one bad pitch. ... Take away one pitch (the slam) from the day, and its a completely different game.The turn of the calendar could be a good thing for Santiago, who is 27-32 with a 3.79 ERA lifetime but 6-2 with a 2.67 in the month of July.
