Default Question about youth skis

Hello everyone,
My son is 2.5 years old (will be 3 in April) and for the past couple months he has been expressing a very specific and extreme interest in cross country skiing. I found what I think would be some appropriate begging skis for someone his age at REI:

Madshus Snowpup Cross-Country Skis with Bindings - Kids' - Free Shipping at

My question is this. These skis have a bit of a wider profile, obviously to help with balance for young kids and beginners. Would something like this still be allowed on groomed trails? Or would they "ruin" the grooming?

Default Ndamukong Suh returns against Oakland Raiders

Ndamukong Suh returns against Oakland Raiders

Suh, last year's Defensive Rookie of the Year, is back from a two-game suspension for stomping on Green Bay lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith on national television on Thanksgiving Day.

Carlisle was asked if he might try to antagonize a guy with a temper to knock him off his game.

"I don't think so," he said, laughing. "I don't think so."

What's no laughing matter is the importance of Sunday's game at the Coliseum for both Okaland Raiders (7-6) and Detroit (8-5), and both teams' playoff chances could hinge on how successfully the Raiders deal with the 6-foot-4, 307-pound Suh.

Suh had 10 sacks last year in making the Pro Bowl, but has only three this season as he has faced more double teams. Carlisle will surely get a hand from center Samson Satele, as the Raiders try to get their running game going after three subpar weeks.

Suh was not the only person to earn redemption Sunday.

Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson had struggled statistically since the bye week (Nov. 6), but roared back with nine receptions for 214 yards and two touchdowns in the win. Oakland played man-to-man coverage on Johnson, and he made the Raiders pay.

Default Patriots DE Andre Carter May Need Surgery

Patriots DE Andre Carter May Need Surgery

Defensive end Andre Carter suffered an injury to his left leg late in the first quarter of Sunday's 41-23 win against Denver and did not return. and his season is likely over.

Carter's agent, Carl Poston, said that X-rays on his knee were negative and the early diagnosis "looks like Andre has a quad-related injury that will require surgery."

He was defending the run when he fell to the ground, clutching the left knee. He got attention from trainers on the field before being loaded onto a cart and wheeled off the field. Carter will have to undergo season-ending surgery for a quad-related injury.

Carter has been the best player on the New England Patriots defense the whole season. He's been stellar in both run defense and while rushing the passer, and has provided veteran experience in the locker room. He's been labeled a true professional and has been one of the typical pick-ups that makes the New England Patriots extremely successful.

Carter will have around four weeks to recover from a surgery, if he is to return for the playoffs. However, I am not sure if that is strong enough support to keep Carter on the active roster. Should Carter be placed on the injured reserve, expect the Patriots to bring up rookie Markell Carter from the practice squad. Also look for an expanded role for Mark Anderson and Eric Moore- or look for the Patriots to shift their defense back to the 3-4 defense as Carter was one of the only reasons for staying in the 4-3 set.

Default Ray Lewis active vs. Chargers

Ray Lewis active vs. Chargers

Linebacker Ray Lewis was in the lineup for the first time in more than a month as the Baltimore Ravens visited the San Diego Chargers on Sunday night.

Lewis missed the last four games all of which the Baltimore Ravens won without the 12-time Pro Bowler with an injured right foot. He practiced in the days leading up to the game and was listed as questionable on the Baltimore Ravens injury report.

Lewis sustained a turf toe injury against the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 13.

The Ravens clinched their fourth consecutive trip to the postseason before kickoff thanks to losses by the New York Jets, Oakland and Tennessee.

Ravens's wide receivers LaQuan Williams and Tandon Doss, running back Anthony Allen, defensive back Danny Gorrer, outside linebacker Chavis Williams, nose tackle Brandon McKinney and outside linebacker Sergio Kindle are inactived.

Inactive for the San Diego Charger were wide receiver Bryan Walters, cornerback Shareece Wright, defensive end Jacques Cesaire, offensive lineman Tony Moll, outside linebacker Everette Brown and linebacker LB Nate Triplett.
