Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker says taxpayers would pick up half the cost of a 500 million dollar arena for the Milwaukee Bucks under a financial deal that would rely on current and former team owners for the rest. Walker has argued for months that it will cost the state more in lost income-tax revenue if the NBA team leaves Milwaukee than it will to pay for a new downtown arena.


The Regina Red Sox won their second road game in a row with a convincing 7-1 victory over the Swift Current Indians.

Tanner Stokey led the Red Sox offensive outburst with 2 hits, 3 runs, a walk and an RBI. Brandon Vaughn added to the Red Sox run total with a 2 run homer in the 5th.

The Red Sox pitching staff was also strong as winning pitcher Andrew MacMahon went 6 innings giving up only 3 hits while facing 22 batters.

Jeremy Sylvester added a shutout inning before giving way to Skyler Fuss who blanked the Indians in the final two innings.

The win improves the Red Sox record to 3-2 as they head to Edmonton this weekend for a pair of games against the Prospects at Telus Field.

A coach's challenge system is one step closer to being a reality in the NHL. The joint NHL/NHL Players' Association competition committee recommended coach's challenges for goals involving goaltender interference and offside plays. Like the NFL, a coach must have his timeout in order to challenge.
