    Hallmark shop fades into history
    I noticed when I shopped for Valentine's Day cards that the supply at my local Hallmark store was woefully thin. I chalked that up to my own procrastinating. But when I went back this week to buy a thank-you card to mail to a friend, I found a note...

    Taking a pass on Black Friday
    It's Black Friday, and that means hordes of bargain-craving shoppers will lay siege to retailers large and small. Or not. While there have been plenty of recent stories in the media attesting to the idea that Black Friday is one of the busiest...

    Remembering Thanksgiving games of old when Lions devoured Packers
    A Thanksgiving Day feast means something totally different to former Green Bay Packer Paul Hornung. "The Lions used to just eat us alive," he says. Hornung, a Hall of Famer, is 77. The golden era of the Golden Boy was the '50s and '60s. In those days,...

    A new Thanksgiving Day tradition: football's concussion circle
    The game of football has evolved over the years with different formations. We've had the single-wing, the split-T, the wildcat. Now, we have a new one. The concussion circle. The only player involved in this formation is the poor guy on the ground...

    In his flow chart, Kobe Bryant ranks among the all-time smoothies
    I always feel fleeced after going to Staples Center; the prices are just enormous. This might be the worst value in America, and that includes the Kardashian sisters and overpriced Bavarian sedans. Still, I go because "that's where the money is," as...
