The TEN: 8/30/2017


(“The TEN” is not a top ten but ten items worth being included in “The TEN”)

1. Jud Heathcote, who coached Magic Johnson and Michigan State to the 1979 NCAA title, passed away at the age of 90.

2. Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton hit his 18th home run in August tying the major league mark for that month, set in 1937 by Rudy York of the Detroit Tigers. Stanton now has 51 home runs this season.

3. Hoover’s game with Sotomayor this Friday night has been canceled because Sotomayor will observe a four-day Labor Day weekend.

4. Eric Dickerson signs a one-day contract with the Los Angeles Rams and officially retires with the organization.

5. Former Boston Celtics center Robert “Chief” Parish turns 64 today.

6. Cathedral at Arcadia, Friday night 7:00 p.m.

7. Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has raised more than $4 million for those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

8. The Dodgers have lost three straight games for the first time since June.

9. “For those who may wonder, La Costa Canyon defeated La Serna last evening over at Cal High by a score of 34-7. Either of these teams could defeat Bonita or San Dimas, so naturally, MVS ignored the game in Whittier entirely.” – MVS Commenter “On the Same Night.”

10. #3 Florida State at #1 Alabama, Saturday 5:00 p.m. ABC.

    La Serna tract houses don’t compare in style and value to next door La Habra Heights estates.. I wouldn’t invest in La Serna area real estate or FH CC. But Don Jr. is looking into buying La Habra Heights Country Club.

    No they aren’t being snobs because they are wealthy, they are being snobs because they are snobs who think their DELETED don’t stink and then get offended when told they are more privileged then some of the surrounding schools.

    La Serna people are being snobs because they think they are wealthy? HAHAHAHAHA!!! They must not venture to other parts of the San Gabriel Valley: Arcadia, San Marino, Bradbury, Sierra Madre, South Pasadena, etc… The financial wealth of the people living in these cities would make La Serna wealth look like they belong on skid road. Don’t judge, there is always somebody wealthier!

    Truth is you don’t care about LS. Plenty of us do. As far as smug and rude goes, clearly we gave your team a beat down of epic per portions and you couldn’t handle it. Get better. Go practice. Besides, Jeremy’s parents didn’t seem to think we’re smug nor rude at his jersey retirement that 3000 people witnessed Saturday night but nobody cares… practice harder.

    I care about La Serna because it provided a vehicle for a former Pioneer guy to prove the value of on campus recruiting. Margarito, as far as La Serna people are concerned, is from the wrong side of the tracks, which is the real reason they gave him the boot. Future La Serna success depends on how well George and his successor stay true to Beltran’s formula.

    #9; The truth is no one really cares much about La Serna. Students and fans are historically rude. Even the Whittier Daily News writes more about Pioneer than smug La Serna.

    The wake/funeral for coach Heathcote presents a unique opportunity for communication between the Lakers and star player Paul George. If the funeral home can be prevailed upon to let a living George lie in the coffin wearing a prosthetic mask to resemble the deceased, Magic will have several minutes to speak with him under the guise of bidding farewell to his cherished mentor. Hey, just because the coach is gone doesn’t mean creative cheating must die too.
