 Martin Jones Jersey

CHICAGO (AP) Mashaun Alstons office has a corkboard with pictures of some of the kids he has helped over the years. A basketball player in his uniform. A row of smiling teenagers.On one side of the room there is a framed quote that reads Martin Jones Jersey , All those who achieve great things are great dreamers.Alston, 41, is definitely dreaming. In one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in Chicago, he is dreaming of more graduations and birthday parties. Life for a group of kids on the edge.I can be overwhelmed, but then when I go home I never say Im not doing this, I always reflect and say, `Wow, this kid is going through this, and then the next day, Im renewed, Alston said.Alston is a therapist in Choose to Change, a five-month program that aims to reduce youth violence through therapy and mentorship. And it very well might be gone by now if not for the effort of one unusual coalition.The Cubs, White Sox, Bears, Bulls and Blackhawks. The titans of Chicago sports, united with a singular purpose.Near the end of a violent 2016 in Chicago, Roseanna Ander went to a meeting. But I do think for me the most important thing was sending a message that this isnt just somebody elses problem to fix.The funding for Choose to Change had run out by the end of 2017, so the money from the alliance kept it alive for the first part of this year. Another group of teenagers went through the program, and the Crime Lab used the funding extension to build on its data, helping bring in new investors from the public sector.The teams were also able to make a difference in another way.The kids look up to these teams and these athletes, Ander said, and its a huge motivation to be able to say, `Look, were going to be able to get you to these games, things that they wouldnt normally be able to do.Homicides and shootings dipped in Chicago in 2017 and continued to drop at the start of this year. The future of the Chicago Sports Alliance is still being determined, but the teams plan to meet again with Ander soon and Michael Reinsdorf thinks the partnership will continue.Were just starting out in this process and so theres probably a lot of things that we can do going forward that can add on to what weve already done, he said.Alston stays in touch with several of the teenagers he worked with in Choose to Change.One of them sailed through the program a couple of years ago. He made it to every session and participated in the conversations, but he was still involved heavily on the streets, Alston said.On the last day, Alston told him he wanted to keep working with him, and the young man responded positively. About a week later, he was shot.I went to go visit him in the hospital, Alston said. Hey Womens Alexander Steen Jersey , everything you was learning in group, I mean was it like all in vain, or were you a phony? Because what Im hearing and seeing is two different people. So those types of things are challenging.The visit made an impression.He looked at this as more being a professional thing, just me doing my job, Alston said. But then when I showed up at the hospital, it gave him a different outlook of me and said well, this is personal. Absolutely.Jay Cohen can be reached at RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Hurricanes brought back the Hartford Whalers for a night, and two of their younger stars kept Brass Bonanza seemingly playing on repeat.Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen each had two goals and two assists and the Hurricanes beat the Boston Bruins 5-3 on Sunday while wearing Whalers uniforms for the first time since moving 21 years ago.Aho, a 21-year-old who was born three months after the Whalers final game, had his fourth career four-point night and his second in five games, while it was the third for his linemate Teravainen. They assisted on each others two goals.Obviously, when youre scoring, you get more confidence. Thats how it goes, Aho said. Its maybe a little bit easier to score when you get a couple of goals. Im feeling pretty good right now, but its not just me. My linemates are helping me out a lot.The Hurricanes scored four straight goals three in the second period to erase an early 2-0 deficit and snap a two-game losing streak that had left them two points out of last place.You could see from the start, they were engaged, even when we got down, coach Rod BrindAmour said. That was nice to see the level of engagement for 60 minutes. (The Bruins are) going to have their moments, and they did, but I felt like we just kept battling, and we got the win.Justin Faulk also scored for Carolina, which scored two short-handed goals for the first time since 2013.Ryan Donato had two goals, Steven Kampfer also scored and Brad Marchand had two assists for the Bruins, who had won three straight and six of eight.Tuukka Rask made 32 saves for Boston Brayden Schenn Jersey , which pulled to 4-3 on Donatos blast with 3:55 left in the second period. But the Bruins goalie made a critical miscue in the third, turning the puck over near the left post, and that led to Teravainens short-handed goal that put Carolina back up by two with 12:40 remaining.Huge mistake by me, and theres the game, Rask said. The way I see it, it was just an early Christmas gift to the fellow Finns.Petr Mrazek stopped 27 shots for the Hurricanes, who broke out the throwbacks to celebrate their Hartford Whalers heritage, donning jerseys with the whale-tail logo for the first time since they moved to North Carolina in 1997 and left plenty of hurt feelings back in Connecticut.While former owner Peter Karmanos Jr. preferred to leave the Whalers in the past, his successor, Tom Dundon, has fully embraced the organizations old identity stating his desire for a turn-back-the-clock game within weeks of buying the team in January.And when Teravainen cut the Hurricanes deficit to 2-1 with 7:05 left in the first, they piped Brass Bonanza over the PNC Arena speakers.We wanted to just put everything out there, and work as hard as we can, and thank God we made it happen this time, Teravainen said.That catchy tune blared again three times in the second, twice courtesy of Aho. He tied it with a short-handed goal 89 seconds into the second, then scored the go-ahead goal with a kneeling-down shot from the slot at 7:11.The nostalgia ran deep throughout this one, with chants of Lets go Whalers occasionally breaking out during the game. And the latest twist to the Hurricanes post-victory celebration on the ice after their coordinated claps, the players flopped to the ice as if they were beached whales.Youre laughing, so I guess (the idea) was good, Aho said.NOTES: Carolina C Jordan Staal was scratched with an upper body injury. A slightly less-intense version of one of those storied Bruins-Whalers fights took place early between Boston D Brandon Carlo and Hurricanes RW Andrei Svechnikov who was born 3 years after the Whalers moved. Carolina will bring its Whalers throwbacks to New England for its game at Boston on March 5.UP NEXTBruins: Play host to New Jersey on Thursday night.Hurricanes: Visit first-place Washington on Thursday night.
