A 23-year old man has also been arrested in connection with the incident. Terrorist group ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, but that is, as of yet unconfirmed.

Sports Tickets

Fall and winter means sports and more sports. Perennial favorites like Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals are fun to watch in the Eastern Conference, while Western Conference darlings include The Dallas Stars and St Louis Blues. For the NBA season kick off, the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are still something to see.

 

NFL Eases Rules On Endzone Celebrations
The NFL, which some people jokingly refer to as standing for the “No Fun League”, has eased up on the rules that govern player celebrations. Under last year’s rules, multiple-player celebrations, using the ball as a prop, and going to the ground to celebrate were all subject to being penalized. The rules were designed to reign in celebrations that were becoming more and more elaborate and time-consuming. In the early eighties, the Washington Redskins famously had the “Fun Bunch” celebration, in which the Redskin wide receivers and tight ends, and sometimes practically the whole team, would high five in the end zone. Some teams took offense to the Fun Bunch celebration, which was viewed as taunting. When two Dallas Cowboys tried to disrupt it, they were humiliated by being high-fived over by the team that just scored on them. The Fun Bunch celebration is what eventually led to the league adopting the “excessive celebration” penalty in 1984. For the 2017-18 season, the rules will be loosened. Group celebrations, using the ball as a prop, going to the ground, snow angels and the like will all be legal once again. Dunking the ball over the goalpost is still outlawed because goalposts have been previously damaged by celebrations.

Ottawa Faces Elimination
Last week the Ottawa Senators had all the momentum in their Eastern Conference matchup with the Pittsburgh Penguins, up 2 games to 1, coming off a 5-1 victory in which the team chased starting Penguins goalie Theo Fleury off the ice in the first period. After this weekend, however, the Senators are facing elimination. The Penguins won game 4 on Friday, and then destroyed the Senators 7-0 on Sunday in one of the worst Ottawa loses in team history. Penguin center Sidney Crosby seems to be recovered from his recent concussion, scoring two goals and two assists this weekend. Ottawa’s power play has been ice cold, not scoring a power play goal in the last 10 games. Ottawa tries to stave off elimination in game 6 at home tonight in Canada.

He is dealing with significant pain and discomfort stemming from complications from back surgery he had two years ago.
