Sharks’ quirky SAP Center has places to sway … and hide

The Kings played their second straight game in San Jose’s SAP Center on Wednesday night, and the home arena of the Sharks has no shortage of quirks. When the arena was first designed, there were some notable deficiencies: no luxury boxes and no press seating. While the former was remedied, the latter was not. Media members and “black aces,” San Jose prospects observing during the playoffs, have often been arranged around the sandbag-laden scaffolding that hangs from the building’s roof. It resem...

The Lollipop Lesson

The Little Squirt pointed to the canister on his parent's dresser that held phone-chargers, plugs, a hair clip or two, some receipts, and a few lollipops. "Gabriel, I don't think the lollipop is the answer." You see the handlebar to his pushbike was up too high and I could not lower it no matter how hard I tried. When I told him I couldn't budge it he pointed to the canister on his parent's dresser then in his nonverbal but highly effective way I knew he was telling me the lollipop was the ans...

Lakers haven’t let NBA trade deadline deter their focus on improvement

Kyle Kuzma has lived this before. A LeBron James injury, resulting in an extended absence. Losses piling up quickly afterward. A looming trade deadline throwing tension into the mix. But even though the upcoming stretch has some similarities to that 2018-19 period when the Lakers went 6-11 without James in the lineup, there’s a lot different, too. For one thing, said Kuzma, he has more confidence in this group. “We have better pieces than that team, for sure,” he said. “But we just have to figur...

800,000 California workers face unemployment payment delays

Since the spike in unemployment in March 2020, the EDD has struggled to swiftly reprogram its outmoded c...

West-heavy schedule should suit LAFC just fine

A consistent and focused push to elevate how American professional soccer looks and competes against the world has colored everything LAFC said it set out to do. That drive was on display when LAFC outplayed thr...

Nonprofits 2020: A year of innovation and survival

Last year was a year of struggle and innovation for California’s nonprofit sector, as many were forced to furlough staff or downsize, while others closed their doors.

Dodgers’ Walker Buehler has Cy Young talent if not the hardware – yet

GLENDALE, Ariz. — When the Dodgers signed reigning National League Cy Young Award winner Trevor Bauer, it was universally noted that they would boast three former Cy Young winners on their pitching staff this season – Bauer, David Price and three-time winner Clayton Kershaw. It was then frequently noted that another pitcher in the Dodgers’ projected rotation, right-hander Walker Buehler, has Cy Young talent if not the hardware – yet. “I think that obviously when you win a Cy Young, you’re the be...

Hoornstra: Is collective bargaining the secret to injury prevention?

Major League Baseball has not experienced a work stoppage since Aug. 11, 1994. Players went on strike that day and did not return for official regular-season business until April 25, 1995, cancelling a World Series in the process. One consequence of the strike was a pair of shorter-than-usual seasons. The 1994 campaign lasted 112 to 117 games, depending on your team. Players were given four weeks of spring training in 1995, then played 144 games. The regular season grew by only 27 to 32 games fr...
