Buffalo to host USA Hockey Prospects Game
WKBW-TV
Landing a pair of USA Hockey prospects games in each of the two next two years could add more to the Buffalo Sabres' arsenal in its quest to secure the 2018 World Junior Championships. The prospects games, coupled with the $172 million HarborCenter project that is under construction, may be enough to convince the International Ice Hockey Federation to award the high-profile World Junior tournament back to Buffalo.

Does it pay to host the Olympics?
The Motley Fool
Ah, the Olympics. "Faster, higher, stronger" may be the official motto, but economists would add a fourth item: "really, really expensive." The cost of hosting the Games has spiraled from £732,268 in 1948 (London) to tens of billions of dollars today. This year's Winter Olympics are set to be the most expensive ever, with the Russian city of Sochi spending more than $50 billion on hosting the two-week event. That eclipses even the eye‑watering $42 billion spent on the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and tops the cost of all previous Winter Olympics combined.

They are incentives the Speedway has earned in light of its $400 million "Daytona Rising" renovation, which began construction in July.

Can you hear me now?
Sports Illustrated
There isn't a more uninviting place for a visiting NFL quarterback than CenturyLink Field, where Seattle's 12th Man might as well be in the huddle screaming into a megaphone. The home-field advantage at CenturyLink Field needs little introduction. The Seahawks are 16-1 there over the past two seasons, and the famous 12th Man twice set the Guinness World Record for noise at an outdoor season this season. How, exactly, does an opposing quarterback function in that ruckus?
