Sparks’ Nneka Ogwumike pulling off challenging balancing act in the ‘Wubble’

Asked what it would mean to succeed in the “Wubble” — WNBA players’ term for their version of the NBA bubble — the Sparks’ Nneka Ogwumike cited teammate Candace Parker, who said last week: “This season doesn’t have an asterisk next to it, it’s an exclamation point.” “For me to walk away with anything, most importantly really just a championship, it’s gonna be extremely well-earned,” Ogwumike said. “This is going to be a season that no one will ever forget.” The six-time All-Star forward is a big...

This CBD stuff really seems to work: Doug McIntyre

My old gym is now a pot store. Is there anything more Californian than that? And not just any pot store, this place is the Neiman Marcus of marijuana, with curbside pickup, an attractive and helpful staff and the look and feel of an Apple store. This was my very first trip to a pot store — which makes me late to the party — but I don’t smoke pot, so I’ve never had the need. I wasn’t sure what to expect since the last time I bought anything marijuana-related was from a busboy at a Shakey’s in Rho...

Although time has chipped away at Pujols' mountainous talent, he has never believed his advancing age will prevent him from putting up more big numbers on the diamond. After struggling through injuries that slowed him earlier in his 10-year contract with the Angels, the three-time MVP is feeling better than he has in years as he heads into the ninth season of that mammoth $240 million deal.

Now’s a good time to scrap civil asset forfeiture

The killing of George Floyd and the subsequent nationwide uproar has rightfully forced needed conversations about law enforcement and the criminal justice system.
