Olympic Trials. Yet like she has done so many times before Hayes proved skeptics wrong, smashed another record and will represented the United States at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

A native of New Orleans,nfl jersey, Hayes was in fifth place of the 12 athlete finals nba throwback jerseys round when the field was cut to eight for three final attempts.

Having fouled her previous four jumps, Hayes finally got on the board and jumped an astounding 23 3.5 (7.10m) to finish second at the Olympic Trials and qualify for Team USA at the Olympic Games.

Hayes previous wind legal personal throwback nba jerseys record (also a school and WAC record) mark was 21 10.75 (6.67m) and she beats her old record mark by 17 inches, a mark not likely to be broken at Louisiana Tech or in the WAC anytime soon.

She leaves Eugene with the fourth best long jump mark in the world this year with the USA Brittney Reese holding the top two marks. Russia Anna Nazarova is just ahead of Hayes with a mark allen iverson jersey of 23 4 (7.11m) and Hayes is expected to enter the Olympic Games ranked third.

Score One for the Rippers

It’s a long way from the gothic torture chamber ambience of the defunct and sorely missed Washington Square to the upbeat sports bar decor of Clickkeyword[Dan+Marino]” >Dan Marino’s American Sports Bar Grill (as opposed to Dan Marino’s Herzegovinian Bar Grill or Dan Marino’s Mongolian Bar Grill, I suppose),authentic nfl jerseys, but Second Coming have made the trip. And they didn’t come here for the wings (which, by the way, are absolutely delicious, best wings I ever tasted, yummm. Now will you comp my beer?).

The band is set up in this faux den sort of space complete with trophy case and oversize tennis racket. It’s situated in the back of the bar next to the glassed in “Owner’s Box” (admittance by invitation only). Except nobody remembered to tell the band that this was supposed to be an off night. If Dennis tim duncan jersey the Menace were an African American fronting a funk rock band, he would look a lot like Byron Warren.

Bassist Seth Horan high steps, throws back his long, frizzy mane, and pumps out a bottom thick and lumpy as hot asphalt. Lead guitarist Clickkeyword[Kim+Godard]” >Kim Godard peers out from under his Pervert tewk and alternately embroiders the mix with delicate filigrees or propels it with chunky chording on his yellow Strat. And up front there’s Warren, playing to the crowd, dancing in place, flailing at his Telecaster. If they gave an award for best display of nfl wholesale jerseys perpetual motion in a confined space, Warren’s name would be on the trophy.

“Hey, man, turn down the sound,” Warren laughs at his mates. “I can’t hear the game!”

Second Coming’s sound is heavily informed by the three Ps: Parliament Funkadelic, Prince, and the Police. Living Colour and Clickkeyword[Fishbone]” >Fishbone are obvious influences as well. Warren, who writes most of the lyrics, has been exposed to a wide range of musical styles his entire life. Growing up in a white suburban town in Jersey “Exit 1B,” he remembers Warren heard his share of P Funk and Earth,authentic nfl jerseys, Wind and Fire at home, Zeppelin elsewhere. His sister listened to Clickkeyword[David+Bowie]” >David Bowie and his father was a Yes cheap nfl jerseys from china fan.

“I didn’t have a hard,dennis rodman jersey 245, gerald green jersey hard life in high school, but it’s definitely easier being in a rock band now,” says Warren. “Back then there was a little of that ‘What’s this black guy doing playing guitar?’ I was really happy when that first Clickkeyword[Living+Colour+LP]” >Living Colour LP came out. It’s much better now. But I’ll say one thing: If you’re black,throwback nba jerseys 674, you’ve gotta be good. I’m not saying that I’m the shit, but you can’t be half assed. It’s more accepted for a white band to be nhl jersey history bad.”

Warren, a UM student and one time WVUM DJ and station manager who currently earns his regular paycheck at the CD Solution, expresses a fondness for every style of popular music except country. He is especially thrilled to see Living Colour get into heavier rock and move away from funk. “I want to see a black industrial band, or a black rockabilly band. Until that happens, I think that boundary exists,” he confides, although he admits that Second Coming mines the funk vein pretty heavily. “That’s the funny thing about working at the CD Solution. It’s taught me to be extra careful judging people. Customers come into the store and they ask me about reggae, which I don’t know anything about, and not about the Clickkeyword[Indigo+Girls]” >Indigo Girls, which I do.”

Warren’s eclectic taste in music extends to the local scene. He has written a few articles on bands like FtN for Post Mortem (not to be confused with writing a postmortem on FtN), and waxes eloquent when asked about his favorites. “The Holy Terrors are the best band in Miami. Pizza Bob [Melendez,authentic nfl jerseys, former Gables vocalist] was one of my local heroes for nhl jersey size chart stage presence alone. I like Collapsing Lungs, Day by the River. Rene [Alvarez] is an awesome vocalist, definitely as good as Eddie [Vedder, from some obscure nonlocal band]. And Clickkeyword[Diane+Ward]” >Diane Ward man, after I listen to her I can’t even listen to Clickkeyword[Melissa+Etheridge]” >Melissa Etheridge.”

But back at Marino’s Warren has other things on his mind. It would be easy to just throw in the towel, turn in a perfunctory performance, get paid, and go home. But giving up isn’t Second Coming’s style. They’ve played Churchill’s in front of five people. They’ve played UM parties where drunken frat boys shouted requests for “Back in Black,” “Blister in the Sun,” and “Ride the Donkey” over the band’s originals. They’ve played a barn, for crying out loud.

“I haven’t had a hard life,” repeats Warren. “Neither has the band. But I think we’ve paid our dues. We don’t want to be a local band forever.” And for tonight, at least, the road out of Miami runs through Marino’s.

Clickkeyword[Tommy+Lasorda]” >Tommy Lasorda grabs his crotch. The sorority girl in the khaki shorts and plaid cotton shirt gingerly grips a Rolling Rock in her delicate, braceleted hand. A couple of guys whose shot making ineptitude belies their serious expressions hover over one of the pool tables. Second Coming dives into “Love is 4 Punks,” one of their signature mlb jerseys tunes, and slowly but surely, Marino’s starts to come around. The male bartenders bob their heads, the female bartenders nba jerseys and waitresses throw some hip into it. The girl with the deron williams jersey Rolling Rock bends at the knee in something approximating time to the music. A few patrons at the other end of the bar inch closer to the band.

It’s a small step from the toe tapping, head cheap nfl nike jerseys bobbing phase to the call and response phase, and soon Warren has the audience shouting back at him with gusto. When he brings the volume down and says, “We like to start this off slow and soft, then get aggressive like “
