  • Knicks don't match offer...

    HOUSTON (AP) — The New York Knicks decided that Linsanity would have only a one-season run on Broadway.
    Lin is headed back to Houston after the Knicks decided on Tuesday that they wouldn’t match the Rockets’ three-year, $25 million offer for the restricted free agent.
    The 23-year-old point guard, who went undrafted out of Harvard, became an international phenomenon and the biggest story in sports during one dazzling month in the Big Apple. But the Knicks decided keeping the show in town was too costly.
    “Extremely excited and honored to be a Houston Rocket again!!” Lin posted on his Twitter account.

  • Olympics officials: All is OK

    LONDON (AP) — Apart from a wrong turn by a bus driver, a snarky tweet by a U.S. athlete, a few waterlogged venues and a scramble to find enough security guards, everything is fine at the London Olympics less than two weeks before opening ceremony, organizers insist.
    Still, they had to scramble Tuesday to put the best face on an unfolding security debacle — as well as other concerns — afflicting the games, which start in 10 days.
    “Let’s put this in proportion,” games chairman Sebastian Coe told reporters. “This has not, nor will it, impact on the safety and security of these games, that of course is our No. 1 priority.”

  • Results from first two Splash...

    With half the Splash ‘n’ Dash schedule over, it appears local athletes Clay Moseley and Gabe Katko are among those who are in pretty good shape.
    The Splash ‘n’ Dash is a bi-weekly event held during the summer months. The non-competitive races are geared for those trying to get in shape for the mid-August Los Alamos Triathlon and are hosted by the Los Alamos Triatomics multi-sport club.
    Both Moseley and Katko were the fastest finishers in the first Splash ‘n’ Dash June 25, then finished as runners-up in Wednesday’s event.
    The next event is scheduled for July 25. All the events are free but day-of registration is required and they are limited to 75 competitors.
