    Shiv Kapur and SSP Chawrasia were virtually ruled out of contention at the European Tour Open de France after they registered identical second round scores of 4-over 75 in Paris on Friday. Roger Maris Jersey . The projected cut had been set at 2-over at the completion of their rounds.This has also severely dented the Indian duos qualification hopes for the British Open, with next weeks Scottish Open being their last opportunity to book a berth in the years third major.Kapur began his second round from the back nine on a bright note, registering four successive error-free holes before a birdie on the 595-yard par-five 14th. His first bogey of the day only came in the par-four 17th, but then he had to endure four further bogeys on the front nine -- going one stroke over each on the 3rd, 5th, 7th and the 592-yard par-five 9th hole. This took Kapurs cumulative score across 36 holes to 10-over 152.Chawrasias start was almost identical in nature, beginning from the back nine and scoring a birdie on the 14th, before shooting three bogeys across the next four holes. There were two further bogeys on the par-four 4th and par-four 5th, before a birdie on the 381-yard par-four 6th. Chawrasia, who had missed the cut in four out of six previous appearances in this tournament, shot another bogey on the 9th to sign off in similar style to Kapur.The lead at the time of reporting was shared by overnight leader Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark, Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand and Finlands Mikko Ilonen. Ken Boyer Jersey . A big centre with all the tools to be an elite player, Johansen paced the Blue Jackets with a standout game Saturday night. He had a goal and two assists for a career-high three points as Columbus beat the New York Islanders 5-2 to snap a five-game losing streak. St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. . LOUIS -- St. SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- After years of searching for a new home, the Sacramento Kings are set to open a new venue that raises the bar of what an arena can be.Along with some of the modern accouterments that have become commonplace like smartphone apps that allow fans to order food or watch replays from their seats, giant screens to watch the game and high-speed connections that let fans post photos almost instantaneously, the Golden 1 Center also has many first-of-its-kind features.There are the airplane hangar doors that can open to turn the venue into an indoor-outdoor arena and the smart turnstiles that will allow fans to enter at more than triple the usual speed. But perhaps most important to Kings owner Vivek Ranadive are the environmental features that make it the first indoor venue to receive LEED Platinum certification -- the highest level of recognition for environmentally conscious buildings.The 17,500-seat arena will be the first professional sports venue powered completely by solar energy, will save about 1 million gallons of water a year compared to a typical venue of its size, was built with recycled material from the mall that stood at the site before construction began and will get 90 percent of its food and beverages from within 150 miles.We felt we had to set a new bar, Ranadive said. We have to be cognizant of the kind of planet we want to leave our kids and next generations. This had to be the greenest arena ever built. ... I fully expect that arenas in the future will be even better, be even more sustainable. Hopefully what we have here is an example of how to build a great arena and still be responsible to the environment.Ranadive bought the team in 2013 for $534 million, saving the franchise from a planned move to Seattle. The next task was getting the new downtown arena built.Ranadive wanted an iconic venue that would anchor a revitalized downtown and he believes the nearly $600 million facility that opens this weekend has achieved that goal.The arena is part of a $1 billion development project that includes 1.5 million square feet of mixed-use property that will have a hotel, restaurants, retail shops, offices and condos. About $500 million in outside investment is also expected in the area.This arena is the 21st century cathedral, Ranadive said. Its the communal fireplace where people used to gather in old times. For us, its always been about more than basketball.Befitting a team owned by a tech mogul who made his billions in Silicon Valley, the arena was built with enough technology to future proof it. Kolten Wong Jersey. It has enough bandwidth for a small city, allowing fans to post 250,000 Instagram photos per second and 500,000 Snapchats per second, according to chief technology officer Ryan Montoya.It has the NBAs first 4K ultra HD videoboard -- providing a picture four times clearer than HD -- that stretches 84 feet long. The in-stadium app will give fans the best driving instructions based on traffic and parking spots. It will allow them to order food or merchandise to their seat, watch live-streamed video on their phone and even place non-monetary bets on the outcomes of plays that can earn fans points that can be redeemed for prizes.There will even be facial recognition software that will allow players to enter secure areas and could one day be expanded to fans if they opt in to that option, making a more frictionless experience.Our arena is more about code than it is concrete, team President Chris Granger said. The idea is to create a platform that allows us to grow and expand and change the fan experience as the technology adapts.Overseeing all of the technology is a mission control room that will feature law enforcement and emergency medical services personnel, building operations officials, social media and guest services workers and others who will monitor all aspects of the arena on game days.Perhaps the most unique feature will be the hangar doors, which can open to allow the delta breeze to cool the building and provide the option for concerts -- or eventually even basketball games -- with an indoor-outdoor feel.The Kings have had talks with the NBA about what conditions would need to be met before they could play a game with the open doors but the team believes it will be able to control the temperature, humidity and wind well enough to make the conditions on the court comparable to a fully indoor arena.The team plans to hold its open practice with the doors open and could do the same for an exhibition game against a non-NBA team. The Kings also could open the doors for college or high school games in order to gather enough data to show the league.They know we want a home-court advantage and they know that we want to enjoy the indoor-outdoor arena, Ranadive said. I fully expect well figure out a way to get that home-court advantage.
