Northview’s Javon Taylor and Roy Torres sign to play on Saturdays
Funny how all of the college football energy in the southland seems to be in Westwood these days…
I look at Jim Mora Jr. and I see Pete Carroll at USC ten years go…
I look at Lane Kiffin and I see Paul Hackett.
Can somebody forward [...]
Faith Hill leaving Sunday Night Football? What a drag…It’s the most depressing news I’ve heard since being told Chris Capuano had rejoined the Dodgers pitching rotation.
Rumors are like elbows, everybody has two…Except me I’ve got three elbows delivering me stuff about pending realignment in the divisions. Two inside, one outside:
Pasadena Marshall is coming [...]
First hard truth I’ve learned about fantasy baseball: NEVER DRAFT AN ANGEL!
Check this nugget out: During the course of the 2012 football season the El Monte Lions converted 33 of 65 fourth down attempts, which is 51%. A deeper look shows on downs where teams need to convert or it led to giving [...]
I’ve been telling friends that are Oakland Raiders fans to be patient with General Manager Reggie McKenzie. There might be some pain now, but in the long run he’s going to correct all of the Al Davis decisions that buried the franchise…Then I read that McKenzie signed former St. Louis Rams tackle Alex [...]
The National Touch Football League
Oh, I have always been a Robinson Cano fan…
The talk out of the NFL owners meetings in Arizona is that the new helmet rule about offensive players lowering their heads is going to pass.
I understand the intention, but I’m having a hard time believing it is really about player safety [...]
The fact that Wes Welker was able to walk from New England to Denver for a mere 12-million over two years tells you there were other factors at play in the deal…or lack of a deal.
The biggest factor might be Welker’s age, he’s 31. Still, 6-million a year in the NFL is not [...]
Interesting question I heard over the weekend; “Why was it okay for Katie Couric to ask Manti Teo if he was gay in front of millions of people, but not for NFL teams to ask the same in private meetings?”
Wow, here come the Lakers…Not really, I don’t know, not sure…and I just don’t [...]
The La Canada girls…having fun! Great pic by Duane Barker
Listening to Vin Scully call the Dodgers-Cubs game today was like listening to my grandfather…Of course I never knew either of my grandfathers, so Vinnie comfortably fits the bill.
Scully’s the same as ever…unfortunately so is Chad Billingsley.
First Add Oscars: Can somebody get Anne Hathaway a [...]
Phil Henderson Circa 1989
The passing of Jerry Buss is sad, but we’ve been expecting it and it comes without shock…And yes, he is the greatest owner in sports history.
But when I woke up this morning and read “The TEN” and saw that Duke’s Phil Henderson had passed, now that shocked me. Being anti-John Thompson [...]
M-Town’s Josh Cano just has that “Bad Dude” look you want in the trenches.
(We went with a top ten on this. It’s somewhat unique, not too many sites break down the guards. We based it on what we saw during the course of the past season. What we saw on film. What coaches have told [...]
