Rodney 'haunted for months' by Tyree catch

NBC NFL analyst and former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison, in an interview with the Dennis & Callahan show, said that he endured months of sleepless nights in the aftermath of the Patriots' 17-14 loss in Super Bowl XLII. The circus catch by David Tyree, with Harrison draped all over the receiver, played a critical role in the Giants' game-winning drive and left the defensive back to a withering self-assessment.

"I had an opportunity to change the course of the game and I blew it. I didn't make the play that I needed to make for that team and that organization," said Harrison. "You'll never see me having a lack of effort, but this game is about making plays. I made my fair share of plays in Super Bowl and AFC championships. But I let down the city of Boston area, the Patriots organization, my teammates. I didn't make the play that I should have made.

"It haunted me for months -- sleepless nights," ...

Mashup: Egypt soccer riot death toll at 74

More than 70 people were killed during a riot at a soccer game in Egypt on Wednesday, and fingers are being pointed at the police for failing to prevent fans from bringing weapons into the stadium and standing by while the melee exploded.

"People here are dying, and no one is doing a thing. It's like a war," said Mohammed Abu Trika, a star player for Al Ahly, which was upset by the home team, El Masry. "Is life this cheap?"

"The reason for this tragedy is the deliberate neglect and absence of the military and the police," said Essam el Erian, a senior lawmaker from the Muslim Brotherhood's political arm. Added el Erian: "This will not pass without punishment, a thousand punishments."

Pietrus hopes to be a Celtic 'for many years'

BOSTON -- After just 11 games on the Celtics, swingman Mickael Pietrus is so happy playing under coach Doc Rivers and alongside Kevin Garnett that he doesn't envision playing anywhere else for "years to come."

"Hopefully, I'll be a Celtic for many years to come," said Pietrus after the C's 100-64 blowout of the Raptors. "I've seen the other side of the sea, and the fish is different. I don't want to go back there."

Pietrus played five seasons for the Warriors and two for the Magic before splitting time between Orlando and the Suns last season. In ihs first 11 games for the Celtics, he's averaging 8.5 points and two 3-pointers a night.

"I think I fit extremely well on the team, and I'm very happy with my choice, because I picked the Celtics over all the teams," said the Guadeloupe native. "I love the Celtics."

Considering his performance on both ends so far for the C's, the feeling...

Furious BU rally falls short vs. Vermont

Darryl Partin scored 13 of his game-high 19 points in the final 3 1/2 minutes, but Boston University's furious late rally came up one point short in a 68-67 loss to Vermont in a battle between the teams that were tied for second place in America East.

D.J. Irving added 15 points for the Terriers (11-13, 7-3), who trailed by 19 points in the second half. The margin was 16 points with 3:28 left. Partin started the comeback with three 3-pointers in a row. After two free throws by Vermont's Luke Apfeld (16 points), Partin scored four straight (a layup sandwiched by single free throws). That made it a 61-56 game with 1:55 left.

Following three free throws from UVM's Sandro Carissimo, Irving hit a trey and Mike Terry Jr. made two free throws with 38 seconds left to get the Terriers within three, 64-61. Apfeld hit two free throws, but Irving hit consecutive layups and BU was within a point, 66-65, with 20 seconds left.

Scott Wood scored 16 points, including four free throws in the final minute, as NC State held off Boston College, 56-51, Wednesday night at Conte Forum.

C.J. Leslie added 13 points for the Wolfpack (16-7, 5-3 ACC).

Matt Humphrey scored 15 points for BC (7-15, 2-6), which trailed by two at the half (25-23) and kept it close until the final minute.

The teams were tied at 44 with 5:15 left after a Dennis Clifford layup. NC State took the lead for good on a C.J. Leslie jumper seven seconds later. That started a game-deciding 10-2 run, as BC struggled to find the basket in the clutch.
