Leafs Report Cards: Nylander solves Rittich, Leafs triumph in overtime over Flames

We nearly had to start this article with, “Will the Leafs ever score again? My column:” After getting stonewalled by Dave Rittich for 58.5 minutes, the Leafs were finally able to break through with a greasy William Nylander goal after pulling their netminder. Nylander also scored the game-winner in overtime, which feels oddly poetic after […] The post Leafs Report Cards: Nylander solves Rittich, Leafs triumph in overtime over Flames appeared first on Maple Leafs Hotstove.

Hoornstra: What’s left to learn from Jackie Robinson’s life? Plenty

The website lists 393 books with Jackie Robinson in the title. We do not lack for information about the most transcendent baseball player – the most transcendent athlete – in American history. What we lack is patience. In our haste to reduce Robinson to an uncomplicated icon, we tend to soften the edges of a polyhedral life. In 2021, the fullest picture of the man is important. Now as ever, baseball needs to honor the Jackie Robinson who was court-martialed by the Army for refusing...

What’s next as COVID-19 vaccination drive comes under new management?

In Long Beach, port workers qualify for the front of the coronavirus vaccine line. Statewide, Gov. Gavin Newsom wants 10% of vaccines guaranteed for educators going forward. But some counties began vaccinating teachers a month ago. Some counties embrace the state’s conclusion that medical marijuana workers are health care workers and qualify for early shots; others do not. There’s a system operated by the state to make vaccine appointments, but myriad other appointment systems are used by counti...

Poll: More Americans identify as LGBTQ than ever

By Maria Morava and Scottie Andrew | CNN A new poll shows that an unprecedented number of US adults identify as LGBTQ — and that young people, especially Generation Z, are driving the increase. Gallup reported a jump from 4.5% to 5.6% of Americans who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer since its last poll in 2017. The finding proves a steady rise in LGBTQ identification since the analytics company began tracking in 2012, and constitutes, based on the US Census Bureau’s most...

Alexander: Mike Trout, Angels search for needed ‘edge’

It was an intriguing turn of phrase the other day when Angels manager Joe Maddon compared the heretofore waste of Mike Trout’s talent by the Angels to “almost like a mortal sin in the Catholic faith. You just can’t miss out on that kind of an opportunity when you have that kind of generational talent.” I am assuming Arte Moreno got the reference. It’s just not always easy to assume his ballclub is able to do something about it. The difference between the Dodgers and the Angels, the gap between a...

No Offense

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News, Tuesday’s 2-0 shutout loss against Nashville was the second time in the last four games the Wings have been shut out. Over the last 13 games, the Wings have scored more than two goals just twice. The Wings had the worst goals per game (2.00) in the NHL last season. So far this season, they’re last again at 1.86. “You want to score and have the puck on your stick to make plays," Larkin said. "We've played good defense and we've had great...

Angels’ Dexter Fowler reunites with Joe Maddon

When the Angels hired Joe Maddon in 2019, he brought a reputation as a “players’ manager,” a field general so universally respected in Tampa Bay and Chicago that he might serve as a recruiting tool. In Dexter Fowler, the Angels have proof of concept. Fowler waived his no-trade clause to accept a move from the St. Louis Cardinals to the Angels on Feb. 4, when he was traded for a player to be named later. Maddon was instrumental in catalyzing Fowler’s decision. “I knew what I was getting with Joe,...

National Book Award winner Charles Yu discusses his new prize for Taiwanese American writers

In the past, Charles Yu says he occasionally thought about launching a writing prize to encourage young Taiwanese Americans to pursue their creative dreams. “I didn’t know exactly how to go about it, or whether anyone would be interested,” says Yu by phone from his home in Irvine. “But last November, I was lucky enough to win an award,” he says, a modest reference to the National Book Award he won for his latest novel, “Interior Chinatown.” “And I felt that if ever there was a time to use whatev...

LA County unveils plan to vaccinate teachers, other essential workers, starting March 1

Teachers in Los Angeles County can begin receiving the coronavirus vaccine on Monday, March 1 — but just how many doses will be available for educators will depend on supply, which is still just an estimate. Among the slightly more than 200,000 vaccine doses that officials expect, 25% to 29% will go toward teachers and administrators, with 9% of those doses going to private school teachers and staff. First priority for doses goes to those with second-dose appointments. The remainder will be divi...

Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger ‘way ahead of schedule’ in recovery from shoulder surgery

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Following shoulder surgery last November, Cody Bellinger joked that his “Call of Duty” play was briefly impacted but has recovered. His ability to swing a bat, only slightly more essential to his daily activity, has gradually recovered as well. But there is something that won’t return post-surgery. “Never again,” vowed Bellinger, asked when his shoulder would be ready to withstand a forearm bash this season. “I will be a handshake guy for the rest of my career, for sure.
