MONTREAL -- Theyre armed with T-shirts, face paint and posters -- and theyre headed to Montreal. Thomas Muller Jersey . Founding members of the Genie Army, a group of Eugenie Bouchard supporters who cheered for the rising tennis star during the Australian Open in January, will be in the city for the Rogers Cup, beginning this weekend. The fan club is made up of about a dozen people and six of them are making the long journey to Canada for the tournament. "We thought it would be a great chance to support Genie in her hometown and have the home crowd cheer along with us," said Stephen Ganavas, a 17-year-old student living in Melbourne. Dressed in red and white and waving a banner with her name, the Genie Army emerged as Bouchards unofficial cheering section during an impressive run in January. She ended up losing to the eventual winner, Li Na, in the semifinal. The Australian devotees, mostly men in their early 20s, readily admit they have no ties to Canada and no connection with Bouchard. They acknowledge the tall blonds looks may have played a part in their decision to support her. Ganavas said he and his friends also wanted to back an "up-and-comer" in the tournament and Bouchard fit the bill to a T after showing her potential at Wimbledon in 2013. "Genie is great because she is so genuine and down-to-earth," he said in an email exchange. "For example, after she had just lost at the Australian Open to Li Na, she came out onto the grounds and just had a chat with us when she could have been relaxing and thinking about the match she had just lost." Its been a landmark year for Bouchard. After her success in Australia, the 20-year-old made it all the way to the semis in the French Open in June before playing in the Wimbledon final on July 5. She enters the Rogers Cup at No. 7 in the world rankings. In the process, Bouchard, who hails from the Montreal-area community of Westmount, has gained a whole new legion of fans. Other Genie Army clubs have sprouted up in Montreal, Quebec City and Trois-Rivieres. The hashtag .GenieArmy was a trending topic on Twitter during Wimbledon. And a special Genie Army ticket package to watch Bouchard at the Rogers Cup is already sold out. Meanwhile, the original fan club from Australia has also gained a following of its own. A Genie Army website is under construction and the group is planning to sell T-shirts inspired by those they wore at the Australian Open. One reads, "Eat, Sleep, Genie, Repeat." And, after having their faces splashed across newspapers, websites and highlight reels during the Australian Open, members of the Genie Army will become a sort of cause celebre in Montreal. The group will attend an official photo this Saturday and, according to a news release, fans will "have the chance to take their photo with the now famous group." Julian Brandt Jersey . Next up, the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Cleveland Browns in the AFC North. Baltimore Ravens In 2014, the 8-8 season that the Baltimore Ravens experienced was to be expected. Marvin Plattenhardt Jersey . The Canucks figured to be active prior to Wednesdays trade deadline, getting a jump on things the previous day when they dealt goaltender Roberto Luongo to the Florida Panthers for netminder Jacob Markstrom and forward Shawn Matthias. http://www.germanyfcsoccershop.com/c-12-lukas-podolski-germany-jersey.aspx . -- Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew practiced in a limited capacity Friday, a positive sign he might be able to play against the Tennessee Titans.GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Reds starter Homer Bailey said he was "really close" to getting a multiyear deal completed on Monday with several days left before a scheduled arbitration hearing. Bailey is the last Reds player left in arbitration. He has a hearing scheduled for Thursday in Florida. He and the Reds have been working on a deal during the off-season. He wouldnt confirm reports that the sides are negotiating on a six-year deal. "Theres a lot of things that we have in place," Bailey said before the teams workout on Monday morning. "I feel the majority of its fairly worked out, except for some of the details and stuff like that. But were really close." The 27-year-old pitcher made $5,350,000 last season. He asked for $11.6 million in arbitration and the Reds offered $8.7 million, their biggest gap with an arbitration-eligible player. Bailey was the seventh overall pick in the June 2004 amateur draft. He developed into a dependable starter in the past two years, and pitched a pair of no-hitters along the way, too. The hard-throwing Texan went a career-best 13-10 with a 3.68 ERA in 2012, completing his breakthrough season by throwing a no-hitter in Pittsburgh on Sept. 28, a 1-0 victory. He threw the 16th no-hitter in franchise history last June 2, a 3-0 win over San Francisco at Great American Ball Park. Bailey became the third pitcher in Reds history to throw a pair of no-hitters, joining Johnny Vander Meer and Jim Maloney. Jerome Boateng Jersey. Overall, Bailey went 11-12 with a 3.49 ERA with two complete games last season. Bailey hasnt bought a plane ticket to Florida for his arbitration hearing and hasnt bought a suit for it. He expects to have a deal in place before then. "Hopefully we can get the small stuff worked out in the next few days," Bailey said. "If not, Im going to have to go buy a suit." With Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Mike Leake, left-hander Tony Cingrani and Bailey, the Reds have a rotation that can be kept together for several years. Bronson Arroyo left as a free agent after last season, and Cingrani moves into his spot. Cincinnatis rotation finished third in the NL last season with a 3.43 ERA, its best mark since 1974. Overall, the Reds pitching finished four in the NL with a 3.38 ERA and led the league with 1,296 strikeouts, a club record. "You look at that rotation right there, I wouldnt mind any of those guys being here long term, would you?" manager Bryan Price said. "Five guys between 24 and 28 years old. Im not scratching my head wondering about any of those guys, if theyre going to be good long term. "Thats a great group right there. If we had Homer long term, Id be really excited about that."
