England on the shoulder after a basketball game

#1
LONDON - When King James touched the future queen of England on the shoulder after a basketball game, royal watchers cried foul.LeBron James, whose nickname is King James, met Prince William and his wife Kate at an NBA game between Cleveland Cavaliers and Brooklyn Nets in New York on Monday. The three posed for a photograph and James put his right hand on the Duchess of Cambridges right shoulder.According to protocol in Britain, a commoner is not supposed to touch members of the royal family — even if it is an innocent gesture.Photos of the meeting appeared throughout the British media, with many outlets highlighting the breach and pointing out James sweaty post-game shirt.He may be known as King James stateside but LeBron James raised more than a few eyebrows when he got up close with Kate, still dressed in a soggy sweater, the Daily Mirror wrote.Kate, who is five months pregnant with the couples second child, stood between James and her husband and smiled for the cameras, but the Independent newspaper said she appeared somewhat awkward as photographers snapped away merrily.The official website of the British Monarchy says there are no obligatory codes of behaviour for meeting a member of the royal family, but many people wish to observe the traditional forms.For men this is a neck bow (from the head only) whilst women do a small curtsy, the website says.In 2009, the British media criticized another American breach of the no-touch rule when Michelle Obama put her arm on Queen Elizabeth IIs back at Buckingham Palace.William, who is the grandson of the queen and second in line to the throne after his father, Prince Charles, was on a three-day visit to the United States with Kate.During the meeting with James, the American player presented the royals with two Cleveland jerseys. One was yellow and had the name Cambridge on the back with the No. 7 under it, and the other was red and much smaller with George printed over the No. 1 for their 1-year-old son, Prince George.

One out away from finishing off an impressive shutout, they let a must-win game slip away.PORTLAND, Ore. -- Timbers coach Caleb Porter didnt stray from his business-like approach to the season even after Portland downed the two-time defending league champion Los Angeles Galaxy to gain crucial playoff position. "First thing I said was, Weve still got work to do," he said of his postgame address. The 1-0 victory Sunday solidified Portlands hold on third place in the Western Conference with a 12-5-13 record and four matches to go. Portland is undefeated in its last four matches as it continues its bid for its first post-season appearance since joining Major League Soccer in 2011. Maximiliano Urruti gave Portland the win with his first MLS goal, a deftly executed flick in the 52nd minute that fooled Los Angeles goalkeeper Jaime Penedo. Urruti was acquired by the Timbers this month from Toronto FC, which had signed him in August from Argentinas top division Newells Old Boys. Galaxy forward Robbie Keane appeared to score the equalizer early in stoppage time but he was called offsides. Both Keane and Landon Donovan had an animated argument with officials while coach Bruce Arena shouted from the sidelines. Arena also confronted the referees on the field after the match. Afterward, Arena was diplomatic. "Its close, obviously. If hes (the linesman) right, credit to him," Arena said. "Weve been in a lot of games this year where the plays arent even close and they dont have them right. So if he had it right, more credit to him." Los Angeles (13-11-6) remained in fourth place in the West with the loss. The Galaxy are winless in their last four matches.dddddddddddd. Donovan returned to Los Angeles starting lineup after nursing a sprained left ankle that kept him out of the teams last MLS match, a 1-1 draw against the Seattle Sounders last weekend. But his streak of either a goal or an assist in seven straight matches was snapped against the Timbers. He had a dangerous free kick from the side in the 74th minute, but it was headed away by Portland defender Pa-Modou Kah. The match was played in a nearly constant downpour with gusty wind as the remnants of a Pacific typhoon rolled through the region. And it looked as though it was weighing on both teams. The Timbers had just two shots on goal in the first half, compared to seven for the Galaxy. But Portland increasingly challenged Penedo after the break. Shortly after Urrutis goal, Rodney Wallace fired a hard shot at Penedo, who dove and deflected it with his fingertips. Urruti was making just his fifth appearance in a league match. He played in two matches for Toronto before coming to the Timbers. Portland was coming off a 1-0 victory over the Colorado Rapids last weekend. "These last two games we knew were very important," Timbers defender Jack Jewsbury said. "A week ago they were ahead of us and we knew these were going to be crucial matches for us to be in the playoffs and try and position ourselves. We feel good about it, but theres still some work to do." The Timbers and Galaxy played to a scoreless draw in Los Angeles on June 19, and the Timbers earned a 2-1 victory in Portland on July 13.
