Scuttle leftovers, Saturday, Jan. 19

ScuttleBu(r)t ...

Visited DCH this week and met the sister of Bruce Ruhl, an Ohio State defensive back from the mid-1970s who played in a couple Rose Bowls. Bruce, a Detroit area high school star, must have been a good one for Woody Hayes to enter Michigan on a recruiting trip ...

From Rick Telander, Chicago Sun-Times: “I only notice these things because I’m paid to notice everything — but it’s possible the Bulls are now the whitest team in the NBA. Make of that what you will, and be prepared for pregame country music at the United Center.” ...

Luxemburg-Casco senior Maggie Liebeck, a member of the U17 Wisconsin Volleyball Academy team that played at the AAU national championships in Orlando, has verbally committed to Northern Michigan University ...

Need a laugh? May I suggest watching Green Acres’ “Loves Comes to Arnolf Ziffel” from the 1967 season.

Arnold, the pig, and Haney’s “basket hound” Cynthia have a thing for each other. Any “Green Acres” with Arnold is a good one ...

Five numbers have been retired by the Harlem Globetrotters. The basketball entertainers hung up Marcus Haynes (No. 20), Curly Neal (No. 22), Goose Tatum (No. 50), Meadowlark Lemon (No. 36) and Wilt Chamberlain (No. 13). It’s six if you count the No. 3 worn by coach-player Red Klotz of the Washington Generals.

Kotz is the first non-Globetrotter to have a jersey retired by the team. He once hit a last-second shot to give the hapless Generals their only win over the stunned Globetrotters.

"Beating the Globetrotters is like shooting Santa Claus," Red said ...

From the late actress Katharine Hepburn: “If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun.” ...

From Brad Dickson, Omaha.com: “Nebraska native Jack Sock won a share of the Wimbledon men's doubles title. Sit down and take a deep breath. You ready? Nebraska currently ranks higher in tennis played on grass than in college football.” ...

Marquette umpire Adam Hamari has been challenged on three calls this Major League Baseball season, with just one overturned by replay.

Hamari has been splitting time this season between the majors and AAA International League ...

From Tim Staudt, Lansing State Journal: “Figure this one out — Ohio State says it has sold 29,600 student tickets (for college football games), a 13 percent increase over last year and 15 percent up from two years ago. And Michigan's students only bought 13,000? Sounds embarrassing.” ...

From the Boston Globe's Kevin Paul Dupont, on hockey emphasizing speed and hitting: "They are its meat and potatoes. Everything else, including even passing and shooting, is mere parsley. Too much of the game is seek and destroy, the domain of the fastest and boldest." …

Marquette's Justin Florek isn't sure if he's playing for the NHL's Boston Bruins or AHL's Providence Bruins this hockey season.

"I'll just go into training camp and earn a job," the defenseman told Cremsburg of The Mining Journal. "It'll be tough, but I'm looking forward to the challenge."

The NMU grad scored a goal in the playoffs against the Detroit Red Wings this past season ...

Impressive! Ally Jacques, in her four-year Sault Ste. Marie High School track career, competed in all 17 events …

Toronto Blue Jays hitting coach Kevin Seitzer once signed memorabilia at a 1991 Steve Conery Sports Cards show in Iron Mountain. Seitzer spent five of his 12 MLB seasons in Milwaukee …

From New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, after making 48 saves in Game 5 and giving up the deciding goal in double overtime to decide the Stanley Cup: “You knew it was going to end with tears. Tears of joy or tears of heartbreak." ...
