Two-Point Diversion: Jordan, Slaughter, 'Hawks

His Airness Buys Charlotte Bobcats

Bulls legend/Greatest Of All Time, Michael Jordan finalized a deal over the weekend to purchase the bedraggled Charlotte Bobcats franchise from former majority owner Bob Johnson. MJ faces an uphill battle in making the team profitable as the team has not been in the black for the majority of its seven year existence.

Toews & Kane net a goal apiece in Gold Medal Match

Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews each scored a goal in the gold medal game at the Vancouver Olympics. Kane scored a goal for Team USA in the losing effort as Toews and Team Canada rode the partisan crowd's enthusiasm to a thrilling overtime win.

Chicago Slaughter Drop Season Opener 49-47

Rookie running back Jarrett Payton had two touchdowns (one passing and one rushing) and DeCody Fagg hauled in seven catches and two touchdowns. Still, it was all for naught as Rochester booted a game-cinching field goal as time expired. The Slaughter next hit the field in Richmond, VA against the Richmond Revolution on March 13th.
