Goff, Wentz have lived up to expectations so far since draft

  Goff, Wentz have lived up to expectations so far since draft PHILADELPHIA — Jared Goff and Carson Wentz are an NFL rarity. Two quarterbacks were selected Nos. 1-2 in the draft only seven times since 1967. It hasn't worked out for both teams until now. Wentz finished third in NFL MVP voting his sophomore season when the Eagles won their first Super Bowl title, doing it without him after he tore two knee ligaments in his only other meeting against Goff and the Rams. Goff led Los Angeles to a Super Bowl appearance the following season but lost 13-3 to New England. (For more in-depth coverage of the NFL, listen to the AP Pro Football Podcast apple.co/3iGiX8a) The two face off Sunday when the Rams (1-0) visit the Eagles (0-1).

Squamish RCMP said in a statement that the damage occurred at about 4 a.m. Monday.

No one was hurt.

The West Vancouver Police Department and a police dog unit were also called in to help the investigation on Monday, the statement said.

Sgt. Sascha Banks said police were asking people to stay out of the area, including its climbing and hiking routes, because of the "extensive" police presence.

"The Sea to Sky Gondola is an integral part of this community and we are very lucky no one was injured," she said. "Someone in our area has seen something or has heard something and we are asking them to call us immediately with any information."

Vandals were blamed for cutting the nearly six-centimetre-thick cable in August 2019 while the ride was closed, sending about 30 gondolas smashing to the ground.

Chiefs look to spoil Chargers inaugural game at SoFi Stadium

  Chiefs look to spoil Chargers inaugural game at SoFi Stadium INGLEWOOD, Calif. — The Los Angeles Chargers' long wait for a shiny new home ends on Sunday when they play their first game in SoFi Stadium. Their first guest though could dampen the housewarming. The defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs have won 11 of the past 12 in the series and have taken the past six as the road team. Kansas City also looks primed for a repeat run after a convincing 34-20 victory over the Houston Texans in its opener. The Chiefs have also won 10 straight overall, going back to last season. Coincidentally, their winning streak began with a 24-17 victory over the Chargers in Mexico City.

Total damage in that incident was estimated at up to $10 million and no arrests were made.

The business reopened earlier this year after a new cable was sent from Europe and all of the gondolas were replaced.

At the time, Brown said a new state-of-the-art security system had also been installed.

Brown couldn't be reached for comment on Monday, but he told Mountain FM that the company will rebuild again.

The gondola officially opened in 2014. During the summer season, it can carry as many as 3,000 people on the roughly 10-minute ride to an elevation of 885 metres above Howe Sound.
