Alexander: Maybe walking, instead of kneeling, will finally make the point

We should not be surprised. Four years ago Wednesday, to the day, Colin Kaepernick first protested during the national anthem to bring attention to police brutality against minorities. Anyone taking an honest look will acknowledge that little has changed in those four years, except for the demonization of Kaepernick by segments of society that misinterpreted his action, in some cases willfully so. So after Jacob Blake was shot in the back seven times by a Kenosha, Wis., policeman Sunday while hi...

Why and How the Firearms Sales Got Spikes During Covid-19?

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed things for the foreseeable future as we know it. We have grown conscious in cleanliness and wearing masks have become a fashion statement. We practice social distancing like our life depended on it. The pandemic done something I never thought I’d see and that’s shut down sports in America. The NHL and NBA restarted with the bubble concept, while baseball chose not to go that route. Unfortunately, they have had several games cancelled due to positive tests. The...

Hoornstra: Assessing the first half(!) of the 2020 season

It would be too convenient in this, the year of inconveniences, to say we have reached the midpoint of the baseball season. Some teams, mostly in the AL and NL West, have reached their midpoints already. Most teams will have played 30 games by the end of the week. The Pirates, Phillies and Yankees will be cutting it close. The Cardinals definitely won’t get there. The haphazard pursuit of a 60-game season is an echo of what we heard as spring turned to summer, as major league owners and players ...

Chargers QB Justin Herbert learning from his mistakes

Chargers cornerback Chris Harris Jr. got to study rookie quarterback Justin Herbert while he was sidelined for a few practices last week. Harris noticed one of Herbert’s throws while jogging with teammates and stopped to mention how impressed he’s been with him. The former All-Pro cornerback echoed those praises in interviews and recently called him the real deal. After nearly two weeks of padded practices, the reviews on the Chargers’ No. 6 overall pick have been vastly positive. Wide receiver ...

How did the Angels — with Mike Trout — get here?

Once again, the team with the best player in the major leagues is going to miss the postseason.

After Doc Rivers’ anguish, the NBA pauses to protest another police shooting

The Clippers need one more victory to close out their Western Conference first-round playoff series Thursday. But much more relevantly, they’d need for this already unprecedented NBA season to continue, too. The remainder of the playoff schedule appeared in jeopardy Wednesday afternoon, after all three games scheduled to be played were postponed following the Milwaukee Bucks’ decision not to take the floor. Their protest was, according to The Undefeated, a response to the police shooting of Jaco...
