Obviously, the good people in Los Angeles are very different from you people in San Diego.
Or, as Bill Johnston, the director of public relations for the Chargers, put it in a recent blog to folks in San Diego: "What's with you people?''

An athlete plays 15 or 20 years, retires and there is great fanfare upon his departure. Maybe tears, maybe gifts given, maybe his number hung in honor.
Los Angeles' very own Jack Disney calls it a day and he's just gone.
Disney is good people. There...

It's a difficult admission, one that would trouble my poor mother if she were still alive.
But on occasion, I can be critical here.
I remember my mom once telling me, "If you can't find anything nice to write about someone, then go do a boxing, tennis...

My favorite TV show is "The Mentalist."
I think Patrick Jane is just the greatest, so flippant and smart and capable of saying the most outrageous things at any moment.
"Remind you of anyone?" I'm asking Lane Kiffin on Tuesday morning while mentioning...

SAN DIEGO — I drove down here alone so that I'll have plenty of room upon my return to bring back any Chargers wanting an early start finding a place to live in Los Angeles.
While here I thought I might as well ride the Choking Dogs for going belly...

SAN DIEGO — The other night after the Dodgers lost to the Padres, while the media met with Manager Don Mattingly, screaming could be heard from the nearby coaches' dressing room.
"Passionate" screaming? General Manager Ned Colletti says with a...

Let's take this a step further.
The two basketball experts in town, Magic and Plaschke, have declared Jeanie Buss should be in charge of the Lakers.
This has to be a blow to Jimmy Buss, who probably understands he also won't be Phil Jackson's choice...

I'm thinking the best place for Dwight Howard's statue outside Staples is right beside Oscar De La Hoya's 7-foot likeness.
That way they can keep the guys together who have been beaten up the most in the building.
De La Hoya was 0-1 in Staples and so...

Everyone loves everybody now. There were Lakers hugs all around, with fans at Staples Center on Sunday joining the party, getting rally towels and the feel of a playoff game.
Happy 79th birthday, Jerry Buss, as Gush City flattens Oklahoma...
