Strong survivor: Freddie Freeman’s four-month journey from COVID-19 victim to Most Valuable Player

On the night of July 3, he was the Most Vulnerable Player. He was one of the young and the strong who, we’re told, couldn’t be stopped by COVID-19. But  Freddie Freeman, two months short of his 31st birthday, was broiling with a 104.3 degree fever and frozen by unprecedented fear. That, he said, was the night when he reached up to his Lord and said, “Please don’t take me.” On Nov. 12, Freeman became the National League’s Most Valuable Player. He also could have won Comeback Player of the Year. H...

Santa Anita Racing: Charlatan and Nashville headline Grade I Malibu Stakes

If Saturday’s anticipated speed duel between Charlatan and Nashville in the Grade I Malibu Stakes doesn’t get the ol’ motors revved up, well, better bring your car in for its scheduled maintenance. The Malibu, which has been won by such racing royalty as Ferdinand (1986), Precisionist (1984), Spectacular Bid (1980) and Ancient Title (1974) over the past 50 years, is no doubt the headliner on Santa Anita’s opening-day card that includes two other Grade I stakes races and a pair of Grade II...

Showtime must go on: How the Lakers put on games at Staples Center without fans

After 39 years at the scorer’s table, there are very few situations when Lawrence Tanter doesn’t know how to strike the right note with the soothing baritone that is as familiar to some Lakers’ fans as the voice of a parent. But Tanter had questions ahead of his first preseason home game earlier this month – the first time he had been the public address announcer for any game since March when the COVID-19 pandemic eclipsed the season. He asked Matt Shelton, the Lakers’ director of game entertain...

LeBron James, Luka Doncic circling for Lakers-Mavericks Christmas Day clash

Playing the season opener and Christmas in consecutive games is a little bit like following the first day of school with winter break, LeBron James said. But ahead of his 15th career Christmas Day game and his 14th in a row, James said he was still brimming with excitement for a home matchup against Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks. Although James turned his ankle in the fourth quarter against the Clippers on Tuesday, it’s not going to keep him from suiting up. “I’ve never missed a Christmas...

Health officials collectively hold breath as holidays threaten to worsen coronavirus surge

As Los Angeles County hospitals fill rapidly with COVID-19 cases, often beyond the ability to immediately find patient beds, health officials today fretfully awaited another holiday weekend that threatens to spread the virus even further, potentially leaving medical centers completely overrun. So far, the deaths of 6,499 people in L.A. County have been attributed to COVID-19. The county on Thursday, Dec. 24, set another single-day record for COVID-19 fatalities — 148 — having broken the record a...

Good, bad, ugly: Year’s 5 biggest environmental stories in Southern California

As in so many aspects of our lives, COVID-19 and President Trump played major roles in Southern California’s top environmental headlines for 2020. Overall, environmentalists won some and lost some — as did the Trump administration’s efforts to reduce burdens on businesses by trying to rollback more than 100 environmental regulations, ranging from California’s emissions standards to protections of natural preserves. Many of the administration’s proposed changes spurred legal challenges, some alre...

Jay Norvell gets french fry bath as Nevada wins Famous Idaho Potato Bowl

Nevada football coach Jay Norvell received a french fry bath from his players as a reward for Tuesday's victory over Tulane at the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.  It happened with 17 seconds left as Nevada held a 38-20 lead. One group of players took the cooler full of french fries and poured it over Norvell, while another group of players gave Norvell the traditional Gatorade bath.   There was one issue with the celebration, however, as the french fries spilled out onto the field.  Sin...

If Only

from Ryan Kennedy of The Hockey News, Scouting the 2021 NHL draft has already proven to be an incredibly hard job due to the pandemic and teams are doing their best under the circumstances. But what if - as a thought exercise - NHL franchises were only allowed to pick players in their own backyards? Now, I don't mean players who grew up in the area (that's an entirely different blog), but players on teams within a reasonable driving distance? Let's say about three hours, one w...

This will probably be my first Christmas without being with family. I have an older sister who lives in Arizona, my parents are both looking from above, a close cousin who always visits from Ft. Myers won't be doing so this year. I've been invited to a virtual dinner by friends but to be truthful, I actually need to eat something so a small, cubed, young leg of lamb is in day 2 of being marinated and will be cooked on Christmas Day along with some rice and green beans.

Clippers count on Patrick Beverley’s elite energy through ups and downs

Patrick Beverley had a Dec. 25 to remember last season. Think back to the closing seconds of that Clippers-at-Lakers showdown. A Christmas battle that went the visitors’ way, 111-106, thanks to Beverley’s quick hands and the NBA’s slow-motion replay rule. Remember the 6-foot-1 guard swarming LeBron James as the Lakers’ star rose up for the potential go-ahead shot with just a 3 ticks remaining. Recall the Clippers’ all-world pest pushing a hand into James’ shot — and the replay showing the ball g...

The other day, artist Jeff Kennedy posted the Retro Fly template art on his Facebook page that he created years ago while on his Drawing Flies 365 bender.  I thought it would be neat to get take on what inspired it and I don't think either of us anticipated all the different places over the world that the Retro Fly would pop up when he said that I could use the design as a logo for The Fiberglass Manifesto.     I have long appreciated his generosity in being able to use this piece of art over ...
