Reseda football’s spirits lifted after getting back onto the field

Support our high school sports coverage by becoming a digital subscriber. Subscribe now. RESEDA – Thomas Cunningham trotted through the chainlink fence with his springy, poofy hair Tuesday afternoon and waved to Reseda football coach Alonso Arreola. “Hey, coach,” Cunningham said passing by. He was 40 minutes late. “That’s 20-minute Thomas,” Arreola said with a grin. “That’s all the time we have left, 20 minutes.” Usually, that kind of tardiness wouldn’t be tolerated, but given the circumstance...

Alexander: Another fall, another Angels introductory press conference

It has become an autumn ritual in Anaheim, the annual news conference to introduce the next guy who will set the Angels organization right. Two years ago it was a new manager, Brad Ausmus. Last year it was another new manager, Joe Maddon. Tuesday, via Zoom, it was a new general manager, 40-year-old Perry Minasian, a first-time GM charged with reversing a slide that includes five straight sub-.500 seasons and six seasons since the Angels won the AL West and Mike Trout, the best player of his era,...

The Jones settlement and its consequences

A con game is afoot in Los Angeles. The City Council, or should we call it the City Con-cil, is currently pretending that forcing purportedly temporary homeless housing into parks and parking lots in residential neighborhoods will finally allow the city to clear the growing number of trash-strewn and unhealthful tent encampments from the sidewalks, streets and freeways. It’s a lie, just as the 2007 settlement in Jones vs. Los Angeles was a lie. The Jones settlement came out of a lawsuit by the A...

The NBA Draft is fraught with more unknowns than usual

There’s never been a class like the one up for grabs in the 2020 NBA Draft on Wednesday night: Teams have never had more time to prepare, but they’ve never had less to work with. Workouts and interviews have largely been conducted through Zoom instead of gyms. March Madness was canceled, denying scouts and executives one of the most critical evaluation periods for incoming talent. With conditions for next season in flux – most teams playing without fans and the likelihood of atypical travel sche...

Angels GM Perry Minasian ready to focus on upgrading pitching

As Perry Minasian is still getting comfortable in his new office and getting to know all his staff, he must soon address the elephant in the room. How can he improve the Angels’ pitching? Five days after he was hired as general manager, Minasian held his first press conference and faced several questions about how his Angels could succeed where other recent teams have failed. One of the steps, he said, is to look beyond the pitchers when it comes to improving the pitching. “With pitching comes r...

What will the Clippers do with the 57th pick in the NBA Draft?

It’s not such a bad thing if you’re a fan of a team for whom Wednesday’s NBA Draft (probably) isn’t going to be compelling, must-see TV. It means that team likely was competent the previous season, or in the Clippers’ case, pretty good. Like, second-in-the-Western Conference standings good. Or perhaps that it traded away its picks, as the Clippers have been keen to do recently. That included last February, when they sent this draft’s first-round pick (No. 27, it turns out) to New York as part of...

The good, the bad and the ugly of Proposition 22

With the 2020 election now (mostly) in the rearview mirror, one outcome stands out as uniquely bittersweet. This cycle, California voters approved the much-discussed Proposition 22—which exempted some “gig economy” companies, such as Uber and Lyft, from being forced to classify their drivers as employees. Ultimately, Prop. 22 was a direct reaction to another California law, AB5, which passed earlier this year. Touted as a measure to “protect” workers from the business arrangements that they had ...

Rams sign Matt Gay to try to solve their kicking ‘struggle’

The Rams keep searching left and right for someone who can kick a ball straight. The hunt for Greg Zuerlein’s replacement continued Wednesday when, as expected, Matt Gay became the fifth kicker to sign a Rams contract this year. Gay, 26, a Utah alum who kicked for Tampa Bay in 2019 and was on the Indianapolis practice squad this season, must clear COVID-19 screenings before joining the team. Either Gay or Austin MacGinnis, the former XFL kicker who is on the Rams’ practice squad, will make his R...

“It is a painful and ugly reminder of a life I have worked hard to come back from.” I haven’t posted mugshots here on the Front Page for many years now.
