--The Humboldt Broncos have apparently found a new head coach. The team is scheduled to make an announcement on Tuesday. The team has been without a head coach since Darcy Haugan was killed in the April 6th bus crash that took 16 lives.

--The Flames have added a much-needed scorer to their lineup. Calgary announced the signing of forward James Neal to a five-year deal worth $28.75-million U-S. Neal is coming off a run to the Stanley Cup Final with the Vegas Golden Knights. The 30-year-old winger has reached the 20-goal mark in each of his 10 NHL seasons and produced a career-high 40 goals in 2011-12.

--Chris Kunitz is heading to the Windy City.  The Regina product has signed a one-year deal with the Blackhawks. Financial terms weren't disclosed.  Kunitz spent last year in Tampa registering 29 points in 82 games.  Kunitz has won the Stanley Cup four times---three with Pittsburgh. He is 34 games away from 1000 career.

--The Montreal Alouettes have selected former Oregon offensive lineman Tyler Johnstone in the final Supplemental Draft of 2018 the CFL announced Monday. In doing so, the Alouettes forfeit their first round selection in the 2019 CFL Draft.

--Belgium rallied from 2-0 down to beat Japan 3-2 with a goal in the dying seconds and advanced to a World Cup quarterfinal match against Brazil. It's the first time since 1970 that a team has rallied to win a knockout game from 2-0 down at a World Cup. In other knockout-round action, Neymar had a goal and an assist to lead Brazil to a 2-0 victory over Mexico.

--The International Olympic Committee has committed to contributing $925 million U-S to the host city of the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Calgary is among the cities mulling a bid. Calgary hosted the 1988 Winter Olympics and the legacy venues could provide the foundation for the 2026 Games. An estimate has pegged the city's costs at $4.6 billion with revenues covering almost half.

Qustion -
(Respectful, legit), does non related on field pre-game activities (timeline) take away the focus (mentally/physically) of an athlete before he takes to the field of play after preparing the prior week in practice?
