Newsom calls DC mob violence ‘outright assault to our democracy’

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday called the violent storming of the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Trump “an outright assault on our democracy.” Newsom cancelled a 2 p.m. news conference he had scheduled to update the state on the COVID pandemic. “Peaceful protest is an important mechanism of our democracy but what we are witnessing in our nation’s Capitol building is reprehensible and an outright assault to our democracy and Democratic institutions,” Newsom said.

Alexander: A day when it was hard to think about sports

This was supposed to be a column on the Rams’ Andrew Whitworth, the veteran offensive tackle who suffered a serious knee injury nearly eight weeks ago and is expected to return to the lineup for Saturday’s Wild Card playoff game in Seattle. But how do you write about sports, about the NFL and business as usual, on a day when the U.S. Capitol is under siege? I can’t. Normal business must take a backseat when the scenes on afternoon television and the headlines on newspaper websites resemble somet...

Rams’ Aaron Donald has a super feeling about this team

THOUSAND OAKS — Aaron Donald dialed up his playoff-time intensity on Wednesday, delivering a message to those who doubt the Rams can do some damage, starting with Saturday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. When the 280-pound figure of the best player on the best defense in the NFL looms before you, even as an image on Zoom, you tend to listen to him. “We’ve got all the pieces to the puzzle,” Donald said of the Rams before practice Wednesday. “We’re playing lights-out on defense, and our offen...

Chris Marquette, Katherine Tully-McManus and Chris Cioffi WASHINGTON — As the Capitol was overtaken by a violent mob Wednesday, quick-thinking floor staff grabbed the wooden Electoral College mahogany boxes from the well of the Senate chamber and took them out, along with the crush of evacuating senators. The insurrection, and attack on democracy itself by the pro-Trump rioters, halted the debate over certification of the Electoral College votes of Arizona, which favored President-elect Joe Bide...

Chargers’ Tom Telesco begins hiring process for third head coach

Chargers general manager Tom Telesco thanked Anthony Lynn for his four years as head coach and mentioned why Lynn deserves another head coaching gig. As for why it didn’t work with the Chargers, Telesco didn’t say much besides that the team didn’t win enough under Lynn the past two seasons. “The one thing I don’t want to get lost here is, because he is such a great human being, Anthony is an excellent football coach,” Telesco said Wednesday, two days after the Chargers fired Lynn. Lynn had a win...

A modest goal for 2021 is a healthy sense of optimism. Call it a resolution, if you will. There is a sense of optimism around the 2021 baseball season. Schedules for the Cactus League, Grapefruit League, and regular season have been out for months. Major League Baseball has a universal regular-season start date of April 1. That means pitchers and catchers can be invited to spring training as early as Feb. 17 under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Myriad details remain – health a...

Blake Treinen calls it ‘a blessing’ to return to Dodgers

Blake Treinen had options this winter. But in his mind, the Dodgers offered something no other team could. “Yeah, there was a handful of other teams that were pretty aggressive in wanting to sign me,” said Treinen, who ended his time on the free-agent market on Tuesday by signing a two-year contract to return to the Dodgers. “The Dodgers checked all the boxes on things that we were looking for and so we ended up coming back. “Any time the best team in baseball wants to sign you it’s a blessing.”...
