Sports in a minute

(Continued)

In the best darn small school rivalry out there, it’s Windham hosting Pelham at 6:30. p.m.

Over in the MVC, the marquee local game of the night sends Lawrence to Crozier Fieldhouse with a 7 p.m. date against North Andover. Andover heads to one of the toughest barns in the North as it challenges Lowell at 7 p.m.

Meanwhile, in the first key MVC small battle, the suddenly streaking Hillies, who’ve won two in a row, head to Tewksbury, again at 7 p.m.

DON’T FORGET, THE FANTASY CONTINUES

God bless the NFL, for extending its fantasy football contest into the postseason.

Make sure you go to NFL.com for the NFL’s Fantasy Playoff Challenge.

FUNNIEST MOMENT OF THE WEEKEND

Bar none, the easiest group of people to mock are sports writers. We’re too loud, often obnoxious and often say things that simply drive the everyday fan batty.

Today, I offer you the story of the Miami Dolphins’ beat guys, who were absolutely ripping Reggie Bush on press row and noting how pissed he’d be because he did not get his 1,000 rushing yards in the season finale with the Pats.

Those same bulldogs on press row waited and waited, while Bush delayed his final appearance with the press long after the Pats had finished off Bush and the fish.

Finally, Reggie was ready, and the kittens covering played like his best friend …

“Tough break, eh Reg, not getting the 1,000,” said one.

“Aw shucks (I’m embellishing here),” said Bush. “We came in for the win. I’m not about stats or numbers or any of that.”

The guy’s nose was growing as he said it, but the Dolphins’ writers backed right off and basically said, “Good try, big guy.”

The whole thing was nauseating.
