Kings hope adding Brendan Lemieux provides energy, sends message

With the Kings now much closer to last place than the last available playoff spot in the West division, they hoped a new acquisition would energize the team and that a stern message might get a key forward back on track. Winger Brendan Lemieux, acquired from the New York Rangers on March 27, hit the ice in a Kings jersey for the first time on Wednesday night against Arizona at Staples Center. Meanwhile, forward Gabe Vilardi, who spent much of this season as the Kings’ No. 2 center, found himself...

The Masters: Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy seeking exclusive company

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Rory McIlroy stopped by to encourage Tiger Woods as he recovers from multiple leg injuries and might have come away with some inspiration of his own. “In his family room he’s got this trophy cabinet and it’s his 15 major trophies,” McIlroy said Tuesday. “I said, ‘That’s really cool.

So, You Wanna Be a Backcountry Skier?

So, you want to be a backcountry skier or snowboarder? Great choice. No more chairlift rides or moguls for you because there’s a whole world of incredible, untracked mountains out there to explore. But the backcountry isn’t all powder and sunshine. There’s also breakable crust, bushwhacking, and of course, avalanche hazard. Put simply, the backcountry is a wicked learning environment, and it’s not for the unprepared. This isn’t a checklist for your first tour or a gear guide that will fully equ...

Hoornstra: Dodger Stadium’s $100 million facelift sends a message: it’s here to stay

I once spoke to Bill DeLury, the Dodgers’ longtime traveling secretary, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Dodger Stadium. DeLury had seen it all; he’d been with the team since he was hired to work in the Brooklyn Dodgers’ mailroom in 1950. When we spoke, the team had just been sold to a new consortium of owners. The future of the stadium was uncertain. “A decision will have to be made someday on this stadium,” DeLury said. “It’s 50 years old. It’s got a lot of mileage on it.” DeLury pas...
