INT'L MAN OF MYSTERY: The GLOBE & MAIL's David Shoalts notes Calgary businessman Max Chambers "is getting a lot of attention for a fellow who was quickly dismissed as a prospective NHL owner" by the Blues. Chambers "appears to be an international man of mystery." Shoalts: "Next to no information on either of Chambers's alleged companies can be found. ... Someone whose business involves checking out potential buyers of professional sports teams said he asked several people in Calgary, including some bankers, about Chambers. No one had ever heard of him. However, there are lots of mentions of a Max Chambers from Calgary in media reports about failed attempts to buy sports teams" (GLOBE & MAIL, 9/23).
LIGHT IN THE STORM: In Oklahoma City, Darnell Mayberry reported despite the ongoing NBA lockout, the Thunder "still reached its full-season-ticket capacity and announced it has started a waiting list." The team has "created the True Blue Club, which allows fans to reserve a spot in line for when full-season tickets become available" (THE OKLAHOMAN, 9/21).
