Stadium threat a hoax
MILWAUKEE -- Internet threats of "dirty bomb" attacks at Cleveland Browns Stadium and other NFL stadiums this weekend were a hoax inspired by a writing competition between two men trying to come up with scary threats, a law enforcement official said Thursday.
The threats, which were posted on a Web site last week and mentioned stadiums in seven U.S. cities, were deemed to be false by the FBI Thursday after agents questioned a 20-year-old Milwaukee man.
Berard has second surgery on back
COLUMBUS -- Blue Jackets defenseman Bryan Berard, who has missed all season and much of last year with a back injury, had a second surgery Thursday.
Berard, 29, could be back before the end of the season, spokesman Todd Sharrock said.
The surgery in Los Angeles was to repair a herniated disc and was similar to the surgery he had in March on another disc.
Berard signed a two-year, 4.5 million contract before last season. He had played in 44 of 86 regular season games with Columbus.

*LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Justin Rose dropped his putter, put his hands on his knees and dropped his head. He paused, looked up and managed a wry smile, knowing just how close he came to shooting a 59 on Thursday.
Rose missed a 14-foot birdie putt on No. 18, leaving him a stroke away from matching the PGA Tour record shared by Al Geiberger (1977), Chip Beck (1991) and David Duval (1999). The 26-year-old Englishman settled for a 12-under 60, course and tournament records, and a four-stroke lead Thursday in the Funai Classic at Disney.
*SON SERVERA, Mallorca -- Niclas Fasth, Andrew McLardy and Gary Murphy shot 4-under 66s to share the first-round lead in the Mallorca Open, while Padraig Harrington stumbled to a 77.
