  • You people in San Diego need to deal better with the Chargers

    You people in San Diego need to deal better with the Chargers
    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?'' The Chargers...
  • Jack Disney has lived, breathed and written of SoCal's sports icons

    Jack Disney has lived, breathed and written of SoCal's sports icons
    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...
  • Here's something nice: UCLA Coach Jim Mora is a lovable loser

    Here's something nice: UCLA Coach Jim Mora is a lovable loser
    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...
  • USC's Lane Kiffin is doing fine, paranoia and all

    USC's Lane Kiffin is doing fine, paranoia and all
    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...
  • Nothing 'masterful' about UCLA's victory over Utah

    Nothing 'masterful' about UCLA's victory over Utah
    I had such expectations, the cast sounding terrific, the early Oscar buzz. Then I went and paid to see the worst movie ever made — dumbfounding how anyone ever agreed to make it — an idiotic, stupefying, colossal waste of time. I sat there...
  • Bruins take the buzz out of their season

    Bruins take the buzz out of their season
    So I buy into this Jim Mora-walks-on-water hoopla. "Discipline," as one UCLA honk after the next says as I arrive at the Rose Bowl, making the difference. I've only seen the Bruins play Rice, and I thought I was watching two high school teams. But I'...
  • Dodgers' fortunes took biggest hit when Matt Kemp hit the wall

    Dodgers' fortunes took biggest hit when Matt Kemp hit the wall
    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...
  • Nice guy Don Mattingly is still looking for answers

    Nice guy Don Mattingly is still looking for answers
    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...
  • If Jeanie Buss ran the show, could Phil Jackson's return be far behind?

    If Jeanie Buss ran the show, could Phil Jackson's return be far behind?
    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...
  • Chris Paul has Clippers thinking big, despite thumping by Spurs

    Chris Paul has Clippers thinking big, despite thumping by Spurs
    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...
  • It doesn't take much to make these Lakers happy

    It doesn't take much to make these Lakers happy
    Gush City. 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...
