GREENWOOD, Ind. Wholesale Old Skool Online . -- Wayne Williams kept a pledge he and his father made to each other and shared a moment theyd both been waiting for all their lives.The North Carolina man drove to his fathers gravesite in Indiana to listen to the Chicago Cubs win Game 7 of the World Series. Wearing a Joe Maddon replica jersey and a Cubs cap hed recently purchased, Williams listened to the Cubs 10-inning, 8-7 victory over the Cleveland Indians on his smartphone Wednesday night at his fathers grave in the military section of Greenwood Forest Lawn Cemetery in suburban Indianapolis.Williams told WTHR-TV (http://bit.ly/2fHsbEm ) he and his father had a pact: When the Cubs got into the World Series again, they would listen to the games together.His father, also named Wayne Williams, was a Navy veteran. He died of cancer in 1980 at age 53. Williams said he knew on Sunday night what he would have to do if the Cubs kept their title hopes alive.If they win tomorrow, I have to be heading out the next morning, he said, noting that his wife supported it fully.The 68-year-old retired customer trainer said unlit roads made the trip a little difficult. He also said trying to get to his fathers gravesite required as few stops as possible if he was to make it by the first pitch.Cemetery workers kept the gates open for Williams, who was greeted by TV news crews as he took his spot and tuned in.As Williams listened, he said his wife sent text messages saying, Theyre killing me. Theyre killing me.Finally, after 10 innings and a rain delay, the Cubs rallied to take the lead and held off the last bid for a Cleveland rally. Williams, a Cubs W flag draped on his fold-out chair, said his celebration was subdued.I just kind of said `We did it, like I had anything to do with it, he said. I know how much he would have enjoyed it.As he headed back to his home in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, Williams said he would watch a recording of the game.

Hey Kerry, big fan of yours, just finished reading your book. I think that we all saw the Canucks/Flames line brawl just after puck drop. It was obvious that something was about to happen, even to the referees because the fourth lines were on to start. When the US Open begins next week, familiar, proven names will headline the daily schedules. But theres a good chance an outsider is going to safely navigate the crucible of the draw and grab instant attention.And to add to the intrigue, there are a host of up-and-coming competitors ready to break out. Will one shine in the New York spotlight? Here are our top five 20-and-under players to watch:1. Alexander ZverevTheres no avoiding the promise of this 19-year-old from Hamburg, Germany, and thats not just because he is 6-foot-6 with a booming game. Zverev can play on all surfaces: He reached his first ATP final at a clay-court tournament in Nice and later defeated Roger Federer?en route to the final of a grass-court event in Halle. After making the third round of the past two majors -- he was stopped by Dominic Thiem at Roland Garros and Tomas Berdych at Wimbledon -- you suspect it wont be long before Zverev makes more of an impression at the Grand Slams. After all, heres someone described by Rafael Nadal as a clear possible future world No. 1, who is amazingly talented and has all the shots. Zverev has yet to win a main-draw match at the US Open.2. Daria KasatkinaWill the 19-year-old Russian make the second week of a Grand Slam for the first time? She has reached the third round of this seasons first three majors, as well as the last 32 at the 2015 US Open, so its surely only a matter of time before she goes deeper into the draw. Kasatskina couldnt have come any closer to cracking the final 16 at Wimbledon. Venus Williams needed all her guile and power to fend off Kasatskina in their third-round match, with the former champion eventually taking the decisive third set 10-8. Still, its not as if Kasatkina missed out on beating Williams for the first time, as she had already done so in Auckland at the start of the season.3. Taylor FritzNo one has ever accused the Californian -- the youngest man inside the top 100 -- of meandering his way through life. At the age of 18, when his friends are preparing to go to college, Fritz is alreaady married (he proposed during this years French Open and the wedding took place just after Wimbledon) and has established himself as a top-level player. Discount Vans Shoes Sale. Already this season, Fritz played in his first ATP final following a run on the hard courts of Memphis, where he was stopped by Kei Nishikori. And theres something this ambitious young man will want to accomplish early on at the US Open: winning a match in the main draw of a Grand Slam for the first time.4. Belinda BencicA quarterfinalist at Flushing Meadows in 2014, Bencic is still only 19 years old. As she once mused when trying to explain why Switzerland keeps producing such classy players: There must be something in the chocolate. And yet, after a summer of injuries, its difficult to be sure how she might perform on the cement of New York. After missing the French Open because of a bad back, she retired from a second-round match at Wimbledon after hurting her wrist. She also lost so many training days while healing that she decided it would be best to give the Olympics a pass and instead focus all her efforts on New York.5. Yoshihito NishiokaAt 5-foot-7, the 20-year-old Japanese player is almost a foot shorter than Juan Martin del Potro. Hes also three inches smaller than countryman Nishikori, the 2014 US Open finalist, who at 5-10 himself is considered to be on the short side for a professional tennis player. Still, that lack of stature hasnt stopped Nishioka from breaking into the top 100 or reaching his first ATP semifinal in Atlanta. This summers hard-court swing has seen a new, more stable version of Nishioka. While he was once, in his own words, very emotional, throwing rackets and getting frustrated, he has been much calmer on the court over the past few weeks. This will mark the third consecutive summer he has played at the US Open, but this is the first time he has gained direct acceptance after qualifying in 2014 and 2015. ' ' '
