WHAT'S HAPPENING LOCALLY THURSDAY: No games scheduled AROUND THE WEB: '™¦ Roger Clemens threw a bullpen session in Puerto Rico, and now a newspaper in that country is reporting that Clemens is considering suiting up for Indios de Mayaguez, the team his son Koby is playing for this winter. El Nuevo Dia quotes an unnamed player as saying Clemens "wants to pitch, that's 100 percent sure. I saw his desire to compete again. He was [at] the practice and said he wanted to play with his son." However, the New York Daily News quotes a source saying that speculation about the 49-year-old returning to the mound is "pure gossip." Clemens last pitched in 2007 with the Yankees. He is due to go on trial in April for lying to Congress about the use of performance-enhancing drugs. '™¦ The Dolphins are 0-7 and Reggie Bush said after a recent loss that the team stinks, but the running back insists it's still enjoyable playing in Miami this season. "Practice is still fun," he told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "Guys are having a good time out there, still working, and we're still hacking away at it. It's going to take one game at a time. We can't worry." '™¦ As the Northern Illinois football team ran onto the field for Tuesday night's game against Toledo, the Toledo marching band was walking past. That meant target practice for one NIU player, who knocked over a couple of scattering musicians. NIU responded by suspending linebacker Jamaal Bass, who the school claims is "extremely remorseful." NIU won the game, 63-60. ON THIS DAY TRIVIA: On Nov. 3, 1942, the American League MVP winner was announced. Despite winning the Triple Crown, Red Sox star Ted Williams lost out to which Yankee?
