Scuttle leftovers, Feb. 1, 2014

From Brad Dickson, Omaha.com: “How about that Erin Andrews-Richard Sherman post-NFC championship game interview? I haven't seen a less gracious winner since the Iron Sheik put the announcer in a headlock.” ...

I usually get a call on how much the Super Bowl participants take home. Thanks to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe for the following:

“Players on the winning Super Bowl team will make $157,000 - $23,000 for winning the divisional round, $42,000 for the conference round, and $92,000 for the Super Bowl. Members of the losing team will make $111,000 - the same amounts for the divisional and conference rounds, and $46,000 for losing the Super Bowl.” ...

From Nick Cafardo, Boston Globe baseball expert: “When finalized, Matt Garza will have settled for $13 million a year from the Brewers on a surprising four-year deal. Many teams were leery of Garza's medicals, but the average annual value of the deal made it attractive for the Brewers to make the commitment.

West Iron County’s Chris Thomson has already locked up the most versatile school superintendent.

Not only does he run one fine school system and help out the football team, we spotted Chris dishing out hot dogs at the Charles Greenlund Gymnasium concession stand Wednesday ...

New Texas football coach Charlie Strong is laying down the law. A football player misses a class, “run until it hurts.” Miss two, the entire position runs. Miss three, the position coach runs ...

Tough loss for Iron Mountain grad Ben Olsen.

Westwood executed a full-court pass and lay-up in the final seconds to edge Olsen’s Gwinn girls basketball team, 31-30.

“We just find ways to lose,” said the Modeltowners coach.

Gwinn (4-7), missing one starter, pulled ahead 29-28 after hitting a triple with 5.5 seconds remaining ...
