Bills receiver sorry about Tweet

Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson tried to be funny earlier this month in a Twitter post when he asked North Korea to bomb Foxborough, Mass., home of the New England Patriots.

Johnson was roundly criticized immediately following the tweet. Then on Monday, his tweet became even more controversial after the Boston Marathon explosions and killing of the three spectators and the estimated 170 people that were injured.

He apologized earlier this week.

“No Twitter, no games, no jokes, none of that. But at the end of the day, I feel just how everybody else felt when they see those bombs go off.”

Cannons scrimmage still on tonight

The scrimmage is free to the public and will be used to raise money for The One Fund, to support the victims of the Boston Marathon explosions.

The Cannons are one of the favorites to win the Major League Lacrosse championship this year.

Former Masconomet Regional star, Craig Bunker, an All-American at Colby College, made the Cannons final 25-man roster and will be one of the faceoff guys in the scrimmage tonight.
