ORLANDO, Fla. DeMar DeRozan Jersey . -- County commissioners on Tuesday approved $20 million in tourism taxes to be used toward the funding of an $84 million downtown Orlando Major League Soccer stadium, clearing the last hurdle for the city to be the home of the leagues next expansion franchise. MLS president Mark Abbott said in a statement after the vote that the league looks forward to working with the Orlando ownership group to finalize the agreement to bring a franchise to the central Florida city. The commissions vote was 5-2 Tuesday night. It came after a six-hour meeting that included comments from more than 100 members of the community speaking mostly in support. Earlier this month, city officials voted unanimously on the same funding plan to help the minor league USL Pro League Orlando City Soccer Club build the 18,000-seat, soccer-specific stadium. The team will contribute the rest of the funding for construction. Following the vote, dozens of purple-clad Orlando City fans in the standing-room only commission chamber erupted in applause and began chanting "We are going MLS! We are going MLS!" Orlando City has been lobbying to become a MLS expansion team for more than three years, but currently plays in the outdated Florida Citrus Bowl. Now that the city and county have approved, Orlando City Soccer owner Phil Rawlins said that an official agreement with MLS could be completed within weeks. Once thats in place, construction would be next with an opening date of 2015 planned. When Rawlins brought the minor team to Orlando in 2010, he predicted it could move up to the MLS within five years. He said his prognostication was less about wishful thinking and more about belief in Orlando as a market. "I felt very strongly at the time that was achievable," Rawlins said. "I think Orlando is a great marketplace for MLS. Its proven that with the support it has in the minor leagues. I know the city is very anxious for a second major sports team and MLS is excited about expansion in the southeast...So I felt confident we could make that happen in that time frame." Among those joining fans and business owners to speak on behalf of MLS coming to Orlando were Orlando Magic co-founders Pat Williams and Jimmy Hewitt. Williams lauded the foresight city officials had when they first brought the idea of NBA expansion to Orlando 25 years ago. "Once again this community is faced with that vision thing once again," Williams told commissioners. Rawlins said once the final paperwork is complete with the league, they hope to make an announcement in about a month. "I think anytime youre building toward a vision and achieving your dreams its always exciting," Rawlins said. Patrick Patterson Raptors Jersey . It was a day that saw England slump off a World Cup field once again battered and bruised. This time there was no red card to wonder about, no goalkeeping error or individual mistake. They were thoroughly beaten by something they have nothing of – genuine world class ability.

He passed a baton to Chris Mullin, the Brooklyn native who starred at St. Johns in Queens before a Hall of Fame NBA career.The groups total time was just over 4 hours, 48 minutes. The event was staged to try to encourage kids to exercise.Many people told me that I was going to walk after retiring five years ago, but Im glad I pushed myself, Mutombo said. Its great. After running on a basketball court for so long and so many years, its good to be outside there running.Each celebrity was joined on his or her one-mile leg by a local student who takes part in marathon organizer New York Road Runners youth programs.Mutombo eschewed running shoes for some more familiar gear.Ive been running all of my life with the high-top shoes, he said. So I really dont know that much what its like running with the low-cut shoes. So when I put these shoes on, its a great brand; its the Dikembe Mutombo brand. Raptors Jerseys. So I was happy to run in them.Among the other participants were Bronx native and Hall of Famer Nate Tiny Archibald; Knicks greats Charles Oakley and Bernard King; former Nets Darryl Dawkins and Jason Collins; Brooklyn native Sam Perkins; and WNBA stars Swin Cash and Ruth Riley.Another member of the relay, former referee Bob Delaney, started Silver off with a tweet of his whistle. Delaney is now the leagues vice-president of referee operations.Silver is an avid runner who has twice completed the NYC Marathon, finishing in just under four hours in both 2002 and 2010. He competed in track and cross country —not basketball — in high school in Rye, New York, where he was a quarter- and half-miler.Plans for the relay began in the early spring. New York is home to this seasons NBA All-Star weekend, with events at the Nets Brooklyn arena and the game at Madison Square Garden.The league is seeking to reach a half-million youngsters in the five boroughs through fitness programs in conjunction with hosting the festivities.
