AROUND THE WEB:
‘¦ Former Northeastern University star Wade MacLeod had a seizure during Sunday’s minor league hockey game at the MassMutual Center in Springfield after he was checked from behind into the glass, and he was in stable condition at an area hospital Sunday night.
MacLeod, a 26-year-old forward for the AHL’s Springfield Falcons, collapsed while he was skating toward the bench. According to the Springfield Republican , MacLeod lay on the ice for several minutes, his legs flailing at times, while medical personnel attended to him.
“We would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming show of support for Wade tonight,” MacLeod’s family said in a statement Sunday night. “Wade is alert, in good condition, in positive spirits, and is resting comfortably at Baystate Medical Center. He will remain at the hospital while he undergoes tests. We are deeply appreciative of all the caring and kind words we have received from family, friends, and fans.”
Adirondack defenseman Brandon Manning received a two-minute penalty for boarding on the play, which occurred late in the second period with MacLeod’s Falcons trailing 2-1. The coaches agreed to suspend the game at that point.
Manning tweeted later: would like to give my best to Wade MacLeod and his family. never had any intention of every hurting another player.. hope for a speedy recovery and see him back on the ice soon. thoughts and prayers to him and his family
MacLeod, who had an assist Sunday, has four goals and seven assists in 20 games this season for the Falcons, an affiliate of the Columbus Blue Jackets . At Northeastern, MacLeod played four years, leading the team in scoring his final three seasons. The native of Coquitlam, British Columbia, totaled 61 goals and 76 assists at NU while setting the school record for games played (149).
Clemens responded Sunday, telling the Houston Chronicle that Piazza wasn’t the only one who wanted revenge, noting that even some of his own teammates had issues with him.
“He’d have to stand in line,” said Clemens, who is serving as a spring training instructor for the Astros. “I think there were about three guys on the Yankees  that wanted a piece of me more than [Piazza] did.”
Clemens, who said has not read the book, claims he has become friendly with Piazza after playing with him at golf events.
“Some of these guys, once you get to know some of them, they’re fine. But like I said, there was no intent there,” Clemens insisted of his famous run-ins with Piazza, including the 2000 World Series  incident in which Clemens threw a piece of a broken bat at the catcher. “And Mike’s a good hitter and I think he hit every breaking ball I threw to him and he hit them hard. But he’s not the first power hitter who’s got me. So, we had some good times. But, yeah, somebody just texted me the Cliffs notes of [the book], so we thought that was pretty good.”
‘¦ Tiger Woods  might not be the world’s best golfer anymore, but he’s still a major drawing card. On Sunday, he played a round  with President Barack Obama at the Floridian, an exclusive yacht and golf club on Florida’s Treasure Coast. The White House prohibited media coverage of the round, which included the participation of Astros owner Jim Crane, who owns the golf club, and outgoing U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk.
Obama, who is spending Presidents Day weekend in Florida, spent the day Saturday with Butch Harmon , Woods’ former swing coach. That apparently was preparation for his round with Woods, who visited the president in the Oval Office of the White House in 2009.
“Just to see the interaction between the two on the range was pretty neat,” Harmon told Golf Digest. “The President said to Tiger: ‘The last tournament you played was fun to watch. It’s good to see you play well again.’ You could tell he meant it. It just wasn’t a throw-it-out compliment.”
