The NASCAR Hall of Fame kicked off its opening day on Tuesday with a star-packed ceremony.

North Carolina governor Beverly Perdue joined Charlotte, North Carolina area dignitaries and representatives of NASCAR’s past and present on stage outside of the Hall for an hour-long ceremony.

The city of Charlotte spent $195 million on the project and is soliciting it as the biggest and most technologically advanced Hall of Fame in professional sports. The 150,000-square-foot building is a shrine of memorabilia, exhibits that recreate old-time NASCAR  lore, 154 video screens, racing simulators and interactive activities.

The inaugural class will be inducted May 23.

Masters champion Phil Mickelson has committed to play in the Memorial Tournament in June.

The world’s number 2 ranked golfer did not play in the event in 2009, but will be making his 11th appearance in the tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club, which runs from June 3-6.

Mickelson has two to-10 finishes in his history in the Memorial.

With Mickelson committing to the field, that gives the Memorial nine of the top 10 money-winners on the PGA Tour.

Tiger Woods, a four-time winner of the Memorial, has yet to commit to this year’s event after withdrawing from the Players Championship last week with a neck injury.

Tim Clark who won The Players Championship, has stated that he’ll play in the Memorial.

Mike Kelly, the winningest football coach in University of Dayton history, will join the Newstalk Radio 1290 WHIO broadcast team this fall. Kelly will join play-by-play announcer Larry Hansgen on Flyer games this fall.

Kelly won 246 games, nine Pioneer Football League championships and three national titles in 27 years as the Flyers football coach. He is currently the Senior Associate Director of Athletics at Dayton.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to be part of the Flyer football broadcasts and to work with Larry in this capacity, “Kelly said. ” When Larry approached me, I said ‘I have to ask (current) coach (Rick) Chamberlin first.’ I wanted to look him in the eye and make sure it was okay with him. We’ve worked very hard to make it his program and that’s the way it should be.”

Kelly’s concerns were unfounded. “This is terrific,” Chamberlin said. “Coach will be able to bring insights to the game that will take it to another level for our fans.”

Hansgen, who has been the voice of Flyer Football since 1988, agrees. “Mike brings a level of knowledge and passion to the broadcast booth that no one can match,” he said. “He will give our audience a unique perspective not only to the past of UD athletics, but its future.”

The Dayton Flyers returns 14 starters from last year’s PFL co-champs. Ten of 11 starters are back on offense, including co-captains Steve Valentino and Tyler Friedrich. Valentino was team MVP and PFL Offensive Player of the Year at quarterback and Friedrich was First Team All-PFL. Defensive captain Joe Ries is back at linebacker. The team’s top tackler, Flyer James Vercammen and UD’s 2009 sack leader, Brandon Wingeier are also back. Vercammen was a Sports Network Second Team FCS All-American and Wingeier is a two-time ESPN The Magazine First Team Academic All-American.

Before a record hockey crowd in Gelsenkirchen, Germany of 77,803, the United States was beaten by Germany 2-1 in the opening game of the world championships.

Felix Schutz scored the winning goal 21 seconds into overtime at Veltins Arena, which is the home of the Schalke soccer team. The attendance broke the record of 74,544 set in 2001 when Michigan State hosted Michigan at Spartan Stadium.

Schutz tapped home a pass from Constantin Braun just inside the blue line. A video review was needed to determine if Schutz was in the goal crease or not.

Michael Wolf scored Germany’s opening goal five minutes into the second period. The United States’ Ryan Carter tied it with 11:32 left in the Group D game.

The Boston Bruins have unveiled a statue of Bobby Orr in his defining moment of scoring a goal.

The bronze statue depicts the most beloved player around the New England area and team history flying through the air with his arms outstretched after scoring the goal that clinched the 1970 Stanley Cup championship against the St. Louis Blues. It was unveiled to the public on Monday outside the TD Garden.

The ceremony came on the 40th anniversary of the goal.

Orr attended the ceremony with Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs, Boston Mayor Tom Menino and several of his teammates.

The 600-pound statue is 110 percent life sized and designed by famous sports sculptor Harry Weber.
