     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Fifty yard-line season tickets in the new Minnesota Vikings stadium come with an upfront licensing fee of $4,500 to $9,500. A seat in the nosebleeds will set loyal fans back a $500 fee.  That's according to a new pricing structure the team and the public stadium authority announced today. Those one-time charges are on top of the annual price of buying a ticket.
 
     Stadium builder's licenses average $2,500, but most run lower. Three-quarters of the stadium's 65,000 seats will have a license fee attached.  Officials say the one-time assessment can be paid interest free over three years.  Vikings ownership is using seat license proceeds to cover one-fifth of the $500 million private share for the $1 billion stadium. It is due to open in time for the 2016 season.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have released linebacker Erin Henderson, who was recently arrested twice on suspicion of drunken driving.  The Vikings announced Henderson's release today. Henderson had one season left on his contract with a $1.95 million salary.
 
     Henderson's latest arrest was Jan. 1 after he crashed his sport utility vehicle in Chanhassen.  Henderson is scheduled to appear in court March 3 on charges of second- and third-degree driving while intoxicated and test refusal, possession of a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and violation of a limited driver's license.  
 
     Henderson was moved to middle linebacker last season and the starter there until he was arrested Nov. 19 in Eden Prairie on suspicion of DWI and drug possession. The 27-year-old finished second on the team in tackles last season.

     NEW YORK (AP) - The defending champion Minnesota Lynx will begin the WNBA season on the road at Washington on May 16 as part of a five-game schedule on opening night to kick off the league's 18th season.  The Los Angeles Sparks, under new owner Magic Johnson, will play at Seattle that night as well.
 
     The Lynx also will be showcased on Memorial Day when they visit Elena Delle Donne and the Chicago Sky. The Sky had the best record in the Eastern Conference last season and made the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.  The WNBA All-Star game will take place in Phoenix on July 19.
 
     The schedule is more compact this season with the final regular-season games to be played on Aug. 17 so that the playoffs will be done before the women's basketball world championship in Turkey that begins at the end of September.

     SOCHI, Russia (AP) - "Welcome to the center of the universe." This is what the crowd at the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics was told by a Russian TV personality. The event started with the crowd chanting, "Russia, Russia." As the host team entered the stadium the lights formed a red, white and blue waving flag and the crowd leaped to its feet cheering.
 
     Organizers for the opening ceremony put cloth bags on every seat in Fisht Stadium that included a guide to the ceremony and a replica Olympic medal that they asked those in attendance to put around their necks. The medals lit up in in several different colors, including blue, white and violet.
 
     The actual lighting of the Olympic Flame was done by two former Russian Olympic greats, Vladislav Tretiak and Irina Rodnina.  The program didn't go without incident as the lighting of the five Olympic Rings overshadowed the singing of the Russian national anthem. Five stars on cables drifted together above the stadium, and four of them turned into Olympic rings - but the fifth never unfurled and they all failed to erupt into white flames as planned.
 
     Roughly 3,000 athletes from 88 countries are in Sochi for the two-and-a-half weeks of competition.

     SOCHI, Russia (AP) - The first five medal events at the Sochi games will be awarded Saturday in the men's 5,000-meter speedskating, the men's 10-kilometer sprint in biathlon; the women's moguls, the men's slopestyle final; and the women's 15-kilometer skiathlon.

     ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - A passenger on board an Istanbul-bound flight claimed there was a bomb on board and tried to hijack the plane to Sochi, Russia. The plane landed safely at an airport in Istanbul and the 110 passengers were kept on board as authorities tried to convince the alleged hijacker to give himself up. An official said the man rose from his seat, shouted that there was bomb on board and tried to enter the locked cockpit.
 
     The Istanbul governor said on Twitter that the "operation has ended." He went on to say all the passengers were evacuated without any problems.

     KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) - The Russians spent some $51 billion on the Olympics but apparently somebody made a mistake in their measurements at the biathlon venue. Course workers had to add 130 feet to the biathlon track because it was too short. The loop should measure 1.6 miles and even though a 5 percent deviation is allowed by the rules, the track at the Laura Cross-Country Ski and Biathlon Center came up short.

     SOCHI, Russia (AP) - The website of Canadian bobsledder Justin Kripps has been blocked in Russia. The website was accessible to Internet users outside Russia, with pictures and biographical information and updates on Kripps' training and competition results. Kripps commented on the incident on Twitter: "Looks like my website is censored in Russia, haha classic."
