Major League Baseball is in the middle of its All Star tour of Japan. Recently, National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman said the league has plans to stage 2019 pre-season games in Germany and Switzerland with regular season games in Prague, the Czech Republic and Stockholm, Sweden.
November 13 is fast approaching and, in a way, it might be the day that sports organizers and sports owners are dreading. Calgary voters will go to the polls, in a non-binding referendum, and decide if they want to help fund the Calgary 2026 Winter Olympics bid.
