More North Andover-bred hockey talent to add to list

Greats left out

Whenever we get into lists of the “greatest” or the “best” in recent memory, we invariably leave out one or two names. Well, last week here in Under The Lights, we mentioned many of North Andover’s long list of Div. 1 hockey prospects over the last three decades. We were reminded that we omitted two pretty good ones in Rob Cheevers and Ron Pascucci, who both attended Boston College on scholarships.

Tweet for Josh Hamilton

Vanderbilt senior Michael Yastrzemski, of Andover, had an insider Tweet for his followers (@mikeyaz18) on Wednesday. Yastrzemski’s tweet read: @joshhamilton how about a couple of bombs tonight? Yastrzemski was referring to Texas Rangers Josh Hamilton’s race for the home run lead. He had 43 and Miguel Cabrera had 44. Why did he want Hamilton to beat out Cabrera? If Cabrera won the home run race it would clinch the Triple Crown (most homers, RBI and highest batting average). Yastrzemski’s grandfather, Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski was the last to turn the trick in 1967. Hamilton didn’t get a hit and Cabrera, indeed, copped the honor.

Yaz big on Ben

Speaking of Carl Yastrzemski, we had an exclusive Page 1 story on “The Captain” and his response after Miguel Cabera won baseball’s Triple Crown for highest batting average and most HRs and RBI. But what really struck us was how high he was on Red Sox GM Ben Cherington. He went out of his way to say Cherington will turn this around, quickly. Interesting.

Fantasy wrestling camp

It’s back and has the UTL seal of approval: The One-Day Fantasy Wrestling Camp, taught by “Straight Edge” Brian Fury and “Fabulous” Johnny Vegas gives individuals the chance to experience in-ring work as a professional wrestler. It only costs $79 and takes place in North Andover at 100 Belmont Street. Campers will learn basic wrestling moves along with the art of promos.
