SJA Scrimmages Saturday To Benefit NEKYS

ST. JOHNSBURY -- Basketball season gets off to a good-hearted start Saturday, when St. Johnsbury Academy scrimmages teams from Hartford and U-32 in a day-long event to raise funds for Northeast Kingdom Youth Services (NEKYS).

All four teams (boys and girls varsity and junior varsity) will be in action. Scrimmages start at 10 a.m. when the Academy's girls JV team tips off against Hartford. The varsity girls follow at noon, also against Hartford.

Following a brief presentation to NEKYS at 1:45 p.m., the boys varsity will tip off against U-32 at 2, followed by the boys JV at 3:30.

Admission for all scrimmages will be $4 for adults and $2 for students. There will be a 50/50 raffle, and concessions. All proceeds from the day will support NEKYS, which will be providing T-shirts for players to wear during warmups.

NEKYS's mission is to create opportunities within the community for youth, families, and individuals to develop life skills and resiliency in the face of adversity.



Viagra: It's Not Just for Old Men Any More

CHICAGO -- Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall says he has heard of players using Viagra in an effort to gain an edge on the field.

Marshall made the comment Wednesday when he was asked about a growing number of suspensions tied to amphetamines, including the ADHD drug Adderall.

Marshall said he didn't know much about Adderall, but then suggested Viagra, which is used to treat impotence in men, could be seen by players as a way to boost their energy.

Marshall says the NFL is so competitive that "guys try anything just to get that edge. ... I've heard crazy stories. I've heard of guys using Viagra, seriously."

Marshall says he's healthy and doesn't take any medications "of any sort."


Yankees, Rivera Agree to $10M Deal

The New York Yankees and closer Mariano Rivera have agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal, plus incentives, sources told ESPN.

Rivera, who turned 43 on Thursday, will take a pay cut from the $15 million he earned in 2012.

The Yankees had been hoping to wrap up a deal with Rivera before the Winter Meetings, which start Monday in Nashville, Tenn. Rivera did not finish this past season after tearing ligaments in his right knee in May.
