Dolphins running back Reggie Bush has developed a knack for saying the right thing when he’s talking to the media. He did it earlier on Tuesday, in a regular session with reporters.

Like many athletes, however, he gets a little looser when he’s on the radio.

That’s what Bush did during a Tuesday visit to the Paul and Young Ron Show in Miami. The show sent out several cuts from Bush’s most recent appearance, two of which caught our attention.

First, Bush admitted that he was bothered by the benching on Sunday in light of the fact that he’s in a contract year.

“I’m not gonna sit here and say it doesn’t bother me,” Bush said. “It does bother me.”

But the quote that will cause the biggest stir, specifically in Western New York, came when Bush was reminded that his next game will be played in cold weather on Thursday night. One of the hosts joked that the women will be topless and the other one said to Reggie, “You don’t wanna see that.” And then the first host said, “No, God no.”

And then Reggie, instead of respectfully laughing or changing the subject, said, “Not Buffalo women.”

So, yeah, a potentially boring Thursday night game just got a little more interesting.
