Damage forces stadium closing

ALLEN, Texas (AP) — A $60 million Texas high school stadium that got national attention for its grandeur and price tag will be shut down indefinitely 18 months after its opening.

Eagle Stadium in the Dallas suburb of Allen will be closed until at least June for an examination of “extensive cracking” in the concrete of the stadium’s concourse, the district said in a statement. The closure will likely affect home games at the stadium this fall, the district said.

Striker banned for celebration

LONDON (AP) — Nicolas Anelka was banned for five games by the English Football Association and immediately suspended by West Bromwich Albion for a racially tinged goal celebration.

The French striker performed the gesture, which is known in his homeland as a “quenelle” and has been described as an “inverted Nazi salute,” during a Premier League match in December.
