Adam Sandler, one committed sports fan

Adam Sandler sure loves his sports. The New Hampshire-bred star, who’s been filming “Grown Ups 2’’ around the North Shore, is known to be a nut for the Yankees and their New York-based brethren. And apparently, he can’t be away from the screen — and the scores — for long. Not content to consult his phone for updates on his favorite teams, Sandler has a couple of people on the set of “Grown Ups 2’’ tasked with traipsing around with a big-screen TV and a satellite dish so that the funnyman can get his sports coverage no matter where he is. We hear that when the crew had to board a boat to shoot a scene recently, the TV and the dish went right along with them. Now that’s a serious sports fan. HAYLEY KAUFMAN
