    导出博客文章The Formula 1 podium shoey has returned, but this time it was Australian former
    F1 driver Mark Webber who got in on the action.Following a crazy 44-lap Belgian
    Grand Prix, Webber was on post-race podium duties interviewing winner Nico
    Rosberg, but his role quickly changed as fellow Aussie Daniel Ricciardo
    proceeded to remove his race boot and fill it with champagne.But unlike his
    post-race celebration at the German Grand Prix last month, Ricciardo wasnt going
    to down the concoction himself.Instead as Webber turned to congratulate his
    fellow countryman for his second placing, Ricciardo handed him the boot and
    there was no way Webber was going to say no to that celebration.We cant wait for
    Ricciardos next podium finish!
    . -- In a span of seven Washington Redskins offensive plays,
    Justin Tuck sacked Robert Griffin III four times.
    . Q: Team Canada announces their Olympic roster three weeks from

    . Luis Suarezs double powered Liverpool to a 4-0 victory over Fulham, and
    Southampton easily overcame Hull 4-1 to continue the south coast clubs
    impressive start to the season. Liverpool and Southampton sent Chelsea down to

    . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so
    this was nothing new. ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions go into Sundays
    game at Houston on a three-game winning streak, all of them at home.Quarterback
    Matthew Stafford says the team has the same focus it had when it started the
    season 1-3.Were a pretty business-like team, whether we win or lose, Stafford
    said. We come in the next week ready to work, no matter what happened the week
    before or who were playing.That approach will be put to a test when the Lions
    meet a Texans team that is undefeated at home and coming off a poor performance
    in a 27-9 loss at Denver on Monday night.Lions coach Jim Caldwell said his teams
    winning streak is less important than Sundays game.We have a new challenge, he
    said. Thats what weve got to get focused on. What helps us is what we do this
    week, and we have to master the moment we have coming up. Its a big game in a
    tough place to play against a team that has not lost at home. Thats where our
    focus is.Both teams are 4-3, but more was expected from the Texans, who managed
    only three field goals against the Broncos.Lions safety Glover Quin has a
    healthy respect for the Houston offense led by 6-foot-8 quarterback Brock
    Osweiler and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.When youre that big and have that
    much arm talent, you can make some throws with the playmakers he has, Quin said.
    Sometimes you get off to a slow start with new teams and new guys, (but) on any
    giiven Sunday, they can click, because they definitely have one of the top
    playmakers in the league.ddddddddddddThe Lions, meanwhile, have been getting
    stellar play from Stafford in a season where all seven games so far have been
    decided by seven points or less. In all four wins, Stafford has led his team to
    come-from-behind victories.Quin said there is confidence in the Lions locker
    room.Weve had to make plays in critical situations to get wins, he said. Once
    you start to do that, the trust and chemistry builds, because you see everything
    working, and players believe in it more.The Lions are on the road the next two
    weeks before their bye week. Caldwell says avoiding mistakes is
    crucial.Turnovers, penalties, mistakes, those kinds of things are accentuated on
    the road, he said. (Houston) has not lost a game in their stadium. It will take
    a heck of an effort.Game notes Caldwell declined to go into specifics as to why
    the team traded Kyle Van Noy earlier in the week. Its the best decision for us
    at this time. (Van Noy) works hard, does what hes asked to do, and sometimes a
    change of scenery can help. . Stafford, on talk of his being a possible MVP: Its
    not on my mind. I dont pay attention to it. I just go play for the guys in that
    locker room. ' ' '
