PRETORIA, South Africa -- The chief lawyer for Oscar Pistorius on Tuesday sought to show at the athletes murder trial that he had a loving relationship with the girlfriend he killed, referring to telephone messages in which they exchanged warm compliments and said they missed each other. Jaire Alexander Jersey . The testimony contrasted with several messages read out in court at the request of the prosecution a day earlier in which Pistorius and Reeva Steenkamp argued in the weeks before he fatally shot her. In those messages, Steenkamp told the double-amputee runner that she was sometimes scared by his behaviour, which included jealous outbursts in front of other people. Defence lawyer Barry Roux noted that the tense messages amounted to a tiny fraction of the roughly 1,700 messages that police Capt. Francois Moller, a cellular telephone expert, extracted from the mobile devices of the couple. Roux noted a Jan. 19 exchange in which Reeva sent Pistorius a photo of herself in a hoodie and making a kissing face, followed by the message: "You like it?" "I love it," Pistorius said, according to the message. "So warm," Steenkamp responded. Roux was also granted permission to show CCTV video, earlier broadcast by Sky News, that showed Pistorius and Steenkamp kissing in a convenience store. And he asked Moller to read out a Jan. 9 message from the model to her athlete boyfriend. It read: "You are a very special person. You deserve to be looked after." Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel questioned the relevance of showing the convenience store video, saying he could ask for a courtroom viewing of another video, also broadcast by Sky News, that shows Pistorius at a gun range, firing a shotgun and using a pistol to shoot a watermelon, which bursts on impact. Nel also said that many messages of affection between the couple were brief, in contrast to the texted arguments, which were far longer and dwelled on their relationship in greater depth. Earlier, Moller said Steenkamp connected to the Internet on her cellular telephone hours before Oscar Pistorius killed her. She made the connection just before 9 p.m. on Feb. 13, 2013, and the connection lasted for more than 11 hours, possibly because social media programs were still open. Pistorius fatally shot her shortly after 3 a.m. through a closed toilet door in his home. "If an application is not closed, it will carry on running," Moller said. Pistorius fatally shot Steenkamp in his home the early hours of Valentines Day, and Mollers extraction of data also shed light on what appeared to be a frantic series of phone calls made from one of Pistorius cellular telephones after the killing. They include a call to the administrator of the housing estate where Pistorius lived at 3:19 a.m. on Feb. 14, a call a minute later to an ambulance service and a call a minute after that to the housing estate security. The phone that was used for those and other calls was only handed over to police 11 days later, Moller said. Police analysis also showed that a five-minute Internet connection was made on Pistorius telephone from 1:48 a.m. on Feb. 14, a little over an hour before he killed Steenkamp. Moller did not specify whether the connection was manual or automatic. Moller said he received as evidence two BlackBerry phones, two iPhones, two iPads and a Mac computer from Pistorius house the day after Steenkamp was shot to death. Prosecutors allege Pistorius killed Steenkamp after an argument. Pistorius says he killed her by accident, mistaking her for an intruder in his house.

Former NFL players Cris Carter and Michael Irvin are the alumni captains this season — Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders were a year ago — and picked their teams during a made-for-TV draft on Wednesday.The coaches are different every season, with Baltimores John Harbaugh (Team Carter) and Dallas Jason Garrett (Team Irvin) getting a turn this year.The way the format is set up now, it creates a lot of competition, Houston Texans Pro Bowl defensive lineman J.J. Watts said. Youre in the waiting room waiting to get picked, then you get picked to a team, its like schoolyard ball. It adds an element of competition and intensity.___THE TIMINGUnlike the other major North American sports, the NFL plays its version of an all-star game at the end of the season instead of midseason as in baseball, basketball and hockey.Part of the reason is the physical nature of football. Players — and their coaches — dont want to risk injury with the season going on, so if the game was midseason, they might not try as hard or skip the game altogether.The game used to be played the week after the Super Bowl, but was moved up to the week before the Super Bowl in 2010 to garner more interest. Because of the timing, players from the Super Bowl teams — Seattle and New England this year — do not pllay in the Pro Bowl. JMon Moore Packers Jersey. ___THE SITESThe Pro Bowl is often linked to Honolulu because the game has been played there nearly every season since 1979.This year, the game will be played at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, site of the Super Bowl a week later. Its the second time in the past 40 years the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl will be played at the same site, with Miami in 2010.The Pro Bowl returns to Hawaii the next three seasons.___GAME QUIRKSThe NFL has, at times, tweaked the Pro Bowl to add excitement or to experiment with potential rule changes for regular-season games.Last year, the Pro Bowl did away with kickoffs, with teams starting at the 25-yard line to start each quarter and after scoring plays. It also added a 2-minute warning at the end of the first and third quarters — its normally only done just before halftime and the end of regulation.For this years game, the uprights for extra-point kicks after touchdowns will be narrowed 18.6 feet to 14 feet, and the kick will be moved back from the 2-yard line to the 15 to make it more difficult.Kickers have made more than 99 per cent of their point-after tries the past two seasons, so the NFL has looked into making changes.___FAN INTERESTDespite a consideration by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to scrap the game after a lackadaisical performance in 2012, the Pro Bowl remains the most popular All-Star game among North American sports.Last years Pro Bowl was watched by 11.7 million viewers despite being slated against the Grammys, which was more than many playoff games in the three other major sports.The tackling — and sometimes the effort — can be suspect in the Pro Bowl, but U.S. fans will watch just about anything NFL-related.Over the last three years, we were challenged, the players were challenged to make sure the Pro Bowl game was competitive, said Jay Vincent, a former player and the NFLs executive vice-president of football operations.Our All-Star game is very difficult to make competitive because the last thing players want to do is go into the off-season injured, but the men have stepped up to the challenge and made it an exciting game for the players and the fans.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Camo China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Authentic Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap ' ' '
