Mashup: Paterno's family bashes rumors

Joe Paterno is under contract for one more season at Penn State and has offered no indications that he plans to quit before then. However, as has been the case the past few years, there have been rumors indicating that he would retire after coaching his team in the Outback Bowl and completing his 45th season on the sideline. His family did not take well to those reports.

 

"Who started the crazy rumors?" wife Sue Paterno told PennStateScout.com on Monday. "He's fine. No one has to identify who starts it. We don't even know where it starts. ... It's just lies." Said daughter Mary Kay Hort to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: "Everybody's been saying he's going to retire. Someday, somebody might get it right."

Krejci in regulation, then Wheeler: B's win
By: DJ Bean

Blake Wheeler scored the only goal of the shootout, and Tim Thomas improved to 17-4-3 as the Bruins defeated the Panthers, 3-2, on Monday night in Florida.

 

David Krejci provided the Bruins with two goals, beating Scott Clemmensen on a rebound in the second period and finishing with a goal on a backhand shot in the third. Michael Ryder received assists on both goals, while Wheeler and Zdeno Chara each had a helper. 

 

David Booth and Mike Santorelli had goals for the Panthers in the second period. Santorelli's was reviewed to determine if his stick was above crossbar height when he redirected a Michael Frolik shot from the point. 

 

The Bruins moved into first in the Northeast division with the win and will face the Lightning in Tampa on Tuesday night.

Belichick: 'Don't need to risk any injuries'

Making his weekly appearance on The Big Show, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick explained his approach toward playing certain players in the regular-season finale against Miami Sunday. 

 

The Pats have already clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC heading into the playoffs, have nothing to gain by beating the Dolphins, and still have the memory of Wes Welker injuring his knee in the final game of the 2009 regular season.

 

"I think the answer to that question is a complicated one, but in the end it comes down to a very simple formula and that's we'll do what's best for the football team," said Belichick when asked by the show's co-hosts, Fred Smerlas and Steve DeOssie, regarding his strategy heading into Sunday's game at Gillette Stadium. "We'll take the entire football team into consideration, but each individual player and his situation is a little bit different depending what the depth is at that...

Shaq fined $35K for criticizing officiating

Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal has been fined $35,000 by the NBA for criticizing the referee Bob Delaney following his team's 86-78 loss to the Magic in Orlando on Christmas Day. Following the Celts' loss, O'Neal was quoted as saying, "“We have two premier big men out there.  He is pushing, I’m pushing. Let us play. I guess they [fans] come out to see No. 26 [Delaney] play. He was a great player out there today. They paid all that money to see No. 26 come play. My thing is, if you’re going to call it, call it the same way every time. Don’t pick and choose who you are going to call it against.”
