UNC junior big man Kennedy Meeks takes most of his shots close to the rim during games, but apparently he can extend his range during shoot-around.  As the Heels got a feel for NRG Stadium during a quick workout today before tonight’s national semifinal, Meeks stepped beyond the court and drilled a shot from beyond the scorer’s table.

Penguins goalie Fleury done for rest of season after second concussion

The Pittsburgh Penguins suffered a major loss Saturday when the team announced starting goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury would be sidelined with a concussion. It’s his second concussion of the season.

Legal weed dealers to rename Broncos stadium?

The Denver Broncos have an opportunity to pretty much own the world of ironic humor. Existing in only one of two states where football is both played and marijuana is legal for recreational use, the Broncos current venue is named Invesco Field at Mile High. Okay, now consider this.
