Ryan Garcia survives a hard fall, goes downstairs to beat Luke Campbell

It will be said that a star was born in downtown Dallas on Saturday afternoon. Not really. Ryan Garcia was a star when he walked into the ring. He was a champion when he walked out. The process began in the second round, when Garcia offered a weak jab at Luke Campbell and caught a right to the body and then a clubbing left hook to the top of his head. Garcia hit the deck for the first time in his career. This fulfilled the wishes of those Twitterers who dismiss Garcia as a Backstreet Boy or a Tw...

Trump vetoes bill ending use of gillnets blamed for harming whales and other marine species

By DARLENE SUPERVILLE WASHINGTON  — President Donald Trump vetoed a bill Friday that would have gradually ended the use of large-mesh drift gillnets deployed exclusively in federal waters off the coast of California, saying such legislation would increase reliance on imported seafood and worsen a multibillion-dollar seafood trade deficit. Trump also said in his veto message to the Senate that the legislation sponsored by Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., “will ...

Lakers’ Talen Horton-Tucker quietly, confidently proves he belongs

At 20 years old, Talen Horton-Tucker already has inspired a few urban legends that have passed through the mouths of seasoned NBA veterans. Last month on “The Chris Vernon Show,” former NBA guard Tony Allen recounted seeing Horton-Tucker, a fellow Chicago native, dominate a G-League game against the Memphis Hustle: He scored 37 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and tallied 7 assists. But what Allen remembered most was not the stats, it was the 6-foot-5 guard telling him point blank, “I don’t even belon...

USC men’s basketball stifles Utah in defensive victory

USC super freshman Evan Mobley didn’t attempt a single shot from the field against Utah on Saturday. Yes, the Trojans’ leading scorer managed just three points, all on free throws. Despite how poorly that stat might seem to portend, it turned out to be inconsequential because of how the USC men’s basketball team played defense. The Trojans (6-2, 1-1 in Pac-12) smothered the Utes, holding the visitors to 27.9% shooting in the Galen Center as USC picked up a 64-46 victory. “It was a team effort, w...

from Matt Porter of the Boston Globe, Perfect Patrice. Saint Patrice. More commonly, Bergy. And now, Captain Obvious.
