Kyle Larson reinstated to compete in NASCAR in 2021

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Kyle Larson can return to NASCAR competition next season following a long suspension for using a racial slur while playing a video game. He was suspended in April after he used the n-word while playing an online racing game in which viewers could follow along. He was dropped by his sponsors and fired by Chip Ganassi Racing. Larson, who is half-Japanese, spent the last six months immersed in diversity programs that were designed to help him gain an understanding of racial injust...

Dodgers-Rays World Series is a matchup of baseball’s best

ARLINGTON, Texas — This time, the Dodgers aren’t going to the World Series. The World Series is coming to them. The 2020 season provided several unique challenges for MLB teams – coronavirus outbreaks, health and safety protocols that changed the sport’s daily way of life, empty stadiums, quarantine bubbles for those who made the postseason where they played at neutral sites and shared their hotel with the opposition. The sport has come through all of that and wound up with an old-fashioned Worl...

Rams try to get back up after being ‘punched in the mouth’

Why did the Rams lose so badly to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night? How much time have you got? The list of reasons is long: Slow starts by the offense and defense. A non-existent pass rush. Too many missed tackles. Too many dropped passes. Ill-timed offensive line penalties. Not to overlook smart play-calling by the 49ers. That’s too much bad football to shrug off, but the litany of problems does contain a reason for hope as the Rams (4-2) move on to a game against the Chicago Bears (5-1...

Coronavirus: How it compares to the flu and where to get flu vaccines

As the U.S. continues to battle the coronavirus, a new flu season is about to start. The flu and the coronavirus have a lot in common, especially considering that people older than 65 are most at risk of getting a severe respiratory infection. According to the CDC COVID-19 dashboard, the case-fatality ratio of COVID-19 in the U.S. is estimated to be 3.1%. The case fatality rate for influenza will obviously change from year to year. But news reports and the World Health Organization often estimat...

Clayton Kershaw to start Game 1 for Dodgers in World Series

Clayton Kershaw will start Game 1 of the World Series for the Dodgers. Walker Buehler will start Game 3. Outside of that? “It’ll be kind of hard to figure out,” Manager Dave Roberts said. In other words, the Dodgers’ pitching plans are largely in keeping with the formula that got them through a seven-game National League Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves. Kershaw will take the ball on four days’ rest Tuesday against Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Tyler Glasnow. In his only NLCS start, ...

Candidates To Replace Mike Emrick

fromAndrew Marchand of the New York Post, While Kenny Albert is a strong candidate to replace Mike (Doc) Emrick on NBC’s coverage of the Stanley Cup Finals, a name that cannot be ruled out is Mike Tirico. Albert, 52, could very well be the next man up, as he is NBC’s No. 2 NHL play-by-play man, having done conference finals and the Olympics for years. But Tirico, the face of NBC Sports, figures to be in the discussion when its network executives decide what to do next. Tirico is a...

Whittier to pay $28 million to family of San Pedro grandmother killed by falling tree

Family members of a 61-year-old San Pedro grandmother who was killed by a falling 80-foot tree at her daughter’s 2016 wedding party in Whittier have reached a tentative $28 million settlement with the city, according to court papers filed by the plaintiffs’ attorneys. The lawsuit stemming from Margarita Mojarro’s death was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court in April 2017, alleging wrongful death and that a dangerous condition of public property existed. The case was later transferred to Norwalk...

Fans buying up the Blue at Dodger Stadium as World Series awaits

The cars started lining up along Vin Scully Avenue early Monday morning, long before they could enter. The Dodgers eliminated the Atlanta Braves in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series on Sunday night and advanced to the World Series — so fans rolled to Dodger Stadium’s Top of the Park Store for some Blue Crew gear to show their support. Shoppers waited in line outside the store, with only a few people allowed to enter at a time, to ensure social distancing. Fans wait in line to...

Elections 2020: In L.A. County, what happens to your ballot once you drop it off at a box?

With all the talk lately about dropping off early ballots for the Nov. 3 General Election, there’s also the question of what happens to a ballot once it is dropped off at an official drop-off box or a U.S. Post Office box. The question has taken center stage as President Donald Trump continuously casts doubt on the integrity of the process. With unauthorized ballot boxes popping up in Los Angeles County, coupled with massive numbers of people voting early this year, it’s a reasonable question to...

Two lizards valued at a combined $75,000, stolen from a Long Beach store in November, have been returned to their owners, police said on Monday, Oct 19.

49ers Return To Old Formula To End Skid, Beat Rams

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP/CBS13) – The formula the San Francisco 49ers used to get back on the winning track against the Los Angeles Rams was a familiar one. A solid running game, strong pass defense and a passing game that relied on quick passes and big plays after the catch. Together, it resulted in a 24-16 victory Sunday night against the Rams that ended a two-game skid for San Francisco and was reminiscent of the style that took them to the Super Bowl last season. “We’re definitely moving in t...

Whicker: Mookie Betts tunes up the Dodgers’ machine like Joe Morgan once did for Reds

Mookie Betts rubbed his glove into Atlanta’s face three times. Since there was always a baseball inside, it hurt. He levitated twice in right field and made home runs disappear, and he charged and leaned and somehow didn’t fall while he snagged a sinking liner, and thus conned Marcell Ozuna into leaving third base early. No one can tell how many runs the Braves might have scored if Betts hadn’t turned right field into his own National League Championship Series control center. But Betts certainl...
