NO OLYMPIC SKI COMMENTARY FOR LYNDSEY VONN

NEW YORK (AP) – Lindsey Vonn won’t be at the Sochi Olympics to ski, and she won’t be there working for NBC, either. Jim Bell, executive producer of Olympics coverage for NBC, said Thursday that Vonn’s knee injury left her unable to travel to Russia to be part of NBC’s team. NBC had expressed an interest in Vonn after the 2010 Olympic downhill champion announced this month she wouldn’t be able to seek gold again. Bell didn’t rule out a stateside role for Vonn, saying that it’s still being talked about. Bell also said he didn’t expect the Sochi Olympics to match the ratings of the 2010 Vancouver games because the time difference prevents live prime-time competition.

WINTER X GAMES

BROTHER OF FALLEN SNOWMOBILER TO COMPETE THIS YEAR

ASPEN (AP) – Everywhere he looks at the Winter X Games, snowmobiler Colten Moore sees little reminders of his older brother. Some are subtle -Caleb’s number, 31, on a parking lot sign or a building – and some are heartfelt – Texas-shaped stickers plastered on windows that read, “Ride in Peace.”  Returning to this venue a year after his brother’s death hasn’t been difficult for Colten.  No, it’s actually beneficial, because here, riding his snowmobile, he feels close to Caleb, who died Jan. 31 from injuries he sustained in a crash during the snowmobile freestyle competition. Colten Moore is scheduled to compete on Thursday night.

BRONCOS TAKE THE PRACTICE FIELD FOR SUPER BOWL 48

ENGLEWOOD (AP) – The Denver Broncos have returned to the practice field for the first time since clinching a spot in the Super Bowl.It was 9 degrees at the start of practice Thursday, a possible preview of what could greet them next week at the Meadowlands.
That’s perfect preparation for the Peyton Manning, who loathes leaving anything to chance and even prepared for cold weather his first year in Denver in 2012 by dunking his right hand in ice water before some practices.For all his greatness, the knocks on Manning is that he crumbles in the cold and has just one championship ring, something he could change when the Broncos face the Seattle Seahawks in the first outdoor Super Bowl ever held in a cold-weather city.
