Americans deserve better than the status quo presidential debates: Jeff Hewitt

After finally watching the first presidential debate in its entirety, I came to the conclusion that this country has allowed its political system to devolve into something more farcical than a WWE wrestling match. Most of the debate reminded me of the movie “Grumpy Old Men.” It was akin to neighbors in a retirement community arguing over the length of grass in the front yard. How this addresses any real concern of the people who make up the voting public is beyond me.  How we got here a lesson i...

The 2021 Version Of The NHL May Look Very Different

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Front offices across the NHL are constructing rosters within flat-cap and internally imposed budgetary restraints for a regular season that will be unlike any that have come before. We don’t know when the season will start, though the league and the NHLPA have agreed on a target date of Jan. 1. We don’t know whether travel restrictions between the United States and Canada will be relaxed for the NHL. We don’t know anything. The league, primarily...

Heat wave to bring above-average temperatures to Southern California

A system of cool air blew into Southern California, giving its inhabitants a semblance of autumnal weather this weekend, a respite from the barrage of heat  waves. However, starting Monday, weather experts expect Santa Ana winds to sweep into the region, bringing dry air and high temperatures that may be well above the average levels for early October. The heat wave is forecast to last until Friday, said Samantha Connolly, meteorologist with the National Weather Service San Diego office. The hot...

UCLA defense won’t be lacking for game-time experience

UCLA will have experience working in its favor for its shortened Pac-12 season, despite many of its players seeing limited action as a starter in 2019. Nine of the Bruins’ projected starters participated in 11 or more games last season. Fall camp is providing an opportunity for UCLA to get the first-team defense settled in with its new responsibilities. Junior defensive back Stephan Blaylock and senior defensive end Osa Odighuzuwa played in all 12 games last season. Blaylock led the team with 86...

Notes Surrounding The Draft

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - Not sure why Vegas is so high on signing Alex Pietrangelo when they already have Norris Trophy contender Shea Theodore. Are the Golden Knights trying the old Anaheim model, with Chris Pronger on one pair, Scott Niedermayer on the other, and play the whole game with one of those two on the ice? - Is it scouting or hoping? Sometimes I wonder. Two of the least productive players, considering their talent level in the NHL last season, were Kyle Tur...

Dodgers will go with Walker Buehler, Clayton Kershaw in NLCS Games 1 and 2

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Dodgers will rely on the same threesome in their starting rotation that got them to the National League Championship Series – Walker Buehler, Clayton Kershaw and “optionality.” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Saturday that Buehler will start Game 1 against the Atlanta Braves on Monday, with Kershaw getting the assignment in Game 2, the same way the Dodgers began each of their two previous playoff rounds. As far as Games 3, 4 and (potentially) 5 – they will cross that bri...

Kevin Shattenkirk ‘couldn’t pass up’ Ducks’ free-agent offer

Kevin Shattenkirk said Saturday that signing with the Ducks on the opening day of free agency Friday was “something I really couldn’t pass up.” He had a chance to sign with them last year, but decided to go with the Tampa Bay Lightning on a one-year deal that proved to be the right choice. After all, Shattenkirk and the Lightning won the Stanley Cup last month. It turned out that the Ducks and Lightning were the finalists for his services last year. After two subpar seasons with the New York Ran...

LeBron James, Jimmy Butler settle into NBA Finals-worthy star duel

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — On an evening when the Lakers had hoped to be triumphant, perhaps entertaining visions of hoisting the Larry O’Brien trophy above their heads, a different picture left an impression in Game 5. It was Jimmy Butler, late in the fourth quarter, doubled over a baseline barrier, close to empty in the 111-108 Heat win. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra, who has two rings himself, thought it spoke to how Butler, a powerful force on both ends of the floor, “burned the boats” in a seaso...

Chargers to lean on rookie RB Joshua Kelley with Austin Ekeler out

COSTA MESA — To Chargers coach Anthony Lynn, it was a routine play. For rookie running back Joshua Kelley, it could be a career-defining play. The Chargers handed Kelley the ball with a 17-point lead and with 47 seconds remaining before halftime last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Lynn explained Monday if Kelley would have broken loose for a long gain, then the Chargers would have gone into their two-minute offense and attempted another score before halftime. If it went for no gain, then...
