The Wire ESPN removed Curt Schilling from its broadcast team for the Little League World Series Tuesday because of an anti- Muslim tweet. Schilling retweeted a post that said, “ Only 5- 10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?” The post was soon removed from his Twitter feed. The network said the tweet was unacceptable and it “ made that point very strongly to Curt.” ESPN said Schilling was removed from the Little League World Series assignment “ pending further consideration.” Schilling accepted the punishment, saying in a statement: “ Bad choices have bad consequences and this was a bad decision in every way on my part.” C ALGARY — The Calgary Flames checked the top task off their summer to- do list by signing captain Mark Giordano to a sixyear contract extension. The 31- year- old defenceman still has a year remaining on his current contract, but Flames general manager Brad Treliving said in May re- signing Giordano was his “ number one priority” this off- season. The deal announced Tuesday is worth US$ 40.5 million, at $ 6.75 million per season. “ Mark has established himself over the last few years as an elite defenceman in the league,” Treliving said. “ We look at it as we got our captain, our leader, our best player under a contract at what we feel is a very competitive number.” The length of the contract was key to the negotiations, said Giordano. “ Term was the most exciting part for me,” the captain said. “ I think the number works. I don’t feel by any means I took less money than I deserve. It’s a fair deal. “ The only way to get a six- year deal was to make it a fair number that works for both sides.” Despite missing the last quarter of the regular season, Giordano posted a career- high 48 points in 61 games to finish fifth in team scoring. Bicep The six- foot, 200- pound rearguard was on track for Norris Trophy consideration when he tore his bicep Feb. 25 in a road game against the New Jersey Devils. “ I’m probably of the camp that if he doesn’t get injured this season, there’s a likelihood that not only is he nominated for the Norris, but I believe he’s deserving to win it,” Treliving said. Giordano was a catalyst in the attack speed the Flames generated from their back end. He insisted at the time of his injury his absence should not prevent the Flames from making the playoffs for the first time since 2009. The Toronto native watched from the press box as the Flames secured a playoff berth in their last home game of the regular season. Calgary played 11 playoff games before bowing out to the Anaheim Ducks in the second round. Giordano says he’s recovered from the bicep injury and subsequent surgery. NHL training camps open Sept. 17. “ I’ve been skating at 100 per cent, shooting at 100 per cent and working out at 100 per cent for a while now,” Giordano said. “ It’s been well over a month of going full out. I’ll be ready for camp.” Giordano has 66 goals and 179 assists in 510 career games, all with Calgary. He played in February’s NHL all- star game. His previous five- year contract was worth $ 20.1 million, or $ 4.02 million per season. Since Giordano’s extension doesn’t start until 2016- 17, that money won’t count against this season’s salary cap ceiling of $ 71.4 million per team. Giordano can now be a Flame until 2022, by which time the team wants to have a new arena. “ I understand there’s a process that has to get done, but I’m hoping maybe in the last year or two of my deal we’re in that new facility,” Giordano said. The Flames captain’s extension also solidifies a strong group of defenceman following the acquisition of Dougie Hamilton from the Boston Bruins. Treliving dealt Calgary’s 15th, 42nd and 57th picks in June’s NHL draft to get Hamilton’s rights. The GM quickly signed the 22- year- old to a $ 34.5- million, six- year deal. — The Canadian Press Flames make their Mark Captain Giordano inks new six- year, $ 40.5- M deal with NHL team By Donna Spencer JEFF MCINTOSH / THE CANADIAN PRESS FILES Mark Giordano ( centre) posted a career- high 48 points in 61 games last season before suffering a torn bicep that ended his season. ALLENTOWN, Pa. — The late Indy- Car driver Justin Wilson saved six lives Tuesday by donating his organs, his brother said. “ He just keeps setting the bar higher,” Stefan Wilson posted on his Twitter page. “ Keep Julia & the girls in your prayers # myherojw.” The 37- yearold Wilson died Monday night from a head injury suffered when a piece of debris struck him during a race the previous day at Pocono Raceway. A British driver who lived in Colorado, Wilson was hit in the head by piece of debris from another car. Wilson’s car veered into an interior wall at the track, and he was swiftly taken by helicopter to a hospital in Allentown in critical condition. Wilson drove a Honda from 2008 through 2015 in IndyCar, and the manufacturer offered its condolences Monday. “ To say that we are heartbroken over the loss of Justin Wilson would create the false impression that our pain is localized,” said Art St. Cyr, president of Honda Performance Development. “ We will be forever grateful for his loyalty, and the gracious and gentlemanly way he represented our company, on and off the race track.” — The Associated Press MILAN — Cast aside by Liverpool after a miserable year, Mario Balotelli is returning to AC Milan knowing he has much to prove. Liverpool is sending Balotelli on loan to Milan after seeing the maverick striker score only one English Premier League goal in the year since he joined from the Italian club for 16 million pounds ( then US$ 27 million). The 25- yearold Italian completed his medical examination Tuesday ahead of a season- long loan being completed. Balotelli said on Milan’s website: “ I just need to train and show what I can contribute ... I need to work hard and talk less.” Balotelli hasn’t featured in a competitive game for four months, having quickly fallen out of favour on his return to England where he played for Manchester City for three chaotic years until 2013. — The Associated Press Wilson saved six lives by donating organs Anti- Muslim tweet costs Schilling LLWS gig AC Milan takes Balotelli off Liverpool’s hands D_ 02_ Aug- 26- 15_ FP_ 01. indd D2 8/ 25/ 15 8: 43: 56 PM
