Sochi, Russia (SportsNetwork.com) - Sweden tied the match on a measurement in the 10th end, then earned two points in an extra end Friday to beat China 6-4 in the mens curling bronze medal match at the Sochi Olympics. It was the first Olympic medal for the mens team since a silver at the 1924 Chamonix Games. Chinas mens team remained without a medal in Olympic play. It missed winning bronze by mere millimeters on a close measurement in the 10th end -- its stone rested beside Swedens just outside the button. China had a stone removed in the ninth end because it wasnt released before the line. Sweden made it through the tournament with two losses -- to Denmark in round- robin play and to Great Britain in Wednesdays semifinals. It also needed an extra end to beat China 6-5 in round-robin play last Friday. The Swedish womens team has been wildly successful since the sport returned to the Olympics in 1998, winning two golds and four medals overall, including a silver in Sochi. China went 7-2 in round-robin play in Sochi, then lost 10-6 to Canada in the semifinals on Wednesday. Nigel Bradham Jersey . -- The Los Angeles Dodgers signed Cuban shortstop Erisbel Arruebarrena to a $25 million, five-year contract Saturday. Harold Carmichael Jersey . -- Canadian freestyle skier Roz Groenewoud isnt letting surgery to both of her knees deter her expectations for the Sochi Olympics. http://www.theeaglesshoponline.com/Derek-Barnett-Eagles-Jersey/. Louis Blues brought in the premier unrestricted free agent centre, and did it without breaking the bank. Darren Sproles Jersey . The D-Backs came into being in 1998 and appear destined to finish second in the AL West after the Tsunami that is the Los Angeles Dodgers swept over them. I thought it might be interesting to see what the D-backs have done over their 16 years compared to what the Blue Jays have done over their past 16 campaigns. Jordan Hicks Jersey .com) - A pair of Eastern Conference rivals will meet on Saturday as D.MILWAUKEE - Gov. Scott Walker proposed a plan Tuesday that calls for Wisconsin to help build a new basketball arena for the Milwaukee Bucks with $220 million in bonds that would be funded by projected growth in income taxes from NBA players.The Republican governor said his Pay Their Way proposal would protect state taxpayers and keep the team in Milwaukee. A new arena in downtown Milwaukee could cost about $450 million to $500 million.New owners bought the team last April and have promised to contribute $150 million toward the new arena. Former owner and ex-U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl has promised $100 million of his own money to help replace the BMO Harris Bradley Center, which was built in 1988.Under what Walker called a first-of-its-kind plan, the more than $6.5 million thats collected from taxes on the salaries of the Bucks and visiting NBA players would continue to go to the states general fund. Walker said that figure is expected to grow due to rising salaries and revenue from the NBAs TV contracts, so any money above $6.5 million would be used to pay off the bond by 2046.I think its arguably the most fiscally conservative idea in the country for a professional sports team, Walker said at a Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce meeting. Were having them pay their own way. Its not coming out of revenues from anywhere else. Its not coming from new taxes. Its keeping the foundation we have today.The plan would be included in the state budget proposal to be submitted by the governor to the Legislature next week.The Bucks hope to settle on a site for a new home in the next month. Team president Peter Feigin thanked Walker for the plan.The governors support brings Wisconsin closer to creating a new state-of-the-art venue and entertaiinment destination that will become an economic catalyst for the entire state, Feigin said in a statement.ddddddddddddThe Bucks could leave Milwaukee in 2017 if there is no new arena a move that would cost the state nearly $10 million per year in income tax collections alone, Walker said. The deadline is part of the agreement of last years team sale. The NBA could refund the money to the new owners and take possession of the team for a possible relocation.Thats not an idle threat. Thats just the facts, Walker said. I cant ignore the fact that if we do nothing, it is not a cost-neutral proposition.Another condition of the agreement would require the Bucks new owners to pay off the bonds if they sell the team.By asking the Milwaukee Bucks to pay their own way, we are protecting state taxpayers, Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said. However, its important to note that in order for the state to be a partner in this endeavour, we would expect the city and county to be part of the equation as well.Milwaukee Common Council President Michael J. Murphy was scheduled to meet with team officials on Wednesday to learn more about the proposal.Republicans control both the state Senate and Assembly, but some conservatives raised concerns about borrowing money to help the Bucks. Rep. John Nygren, a Republican co-chair of the budget-writing committee, said Walkers proposal was a starting point for discussion.The Legislature will debate the budget over the next several months, with a final vote likely sometime in June.The rebuilding Bucks were 22-22 going into Wednesday nights game in Miami. First-year coach Jason Kidd has turned Milwaukee into one of the leagues top defensive teams a year after a franchise-worst 15-win season.
