Brewster: Kyle Busch, new and much improved, aims for NASCAR history

The eyes of the stock car racing world will focus on Fontana and Auto Club Speedway on Sunday, but not for the reason that will attract a good-size crowd. Yes, the attention is centered on Kyle Busch as he attempts to win his 200th NASCAR race. He deserves the bright spotlight as only Richard Petty has reached that number, sometimes competing in three Cup races a week and more than 50 in a season. In Petty’s prime, NASCAR was largely a regional sport that rarely left the Southeast. Now, those tr...

Vegas Golden Knights Turning Assets Into Stars

When Las Vegas was granted the 31st NHL franchise, general manager George McPhee knew this would be no ordinary expansion draft. The game has changed immensely since the last expansion. The game is a lot faster, it requires more skill, and with the growth of hockey in general, there are a lot more players who can play the game at a high level. That led to a lot of teams having players they wanted to keep but could not because of the roster rules; teams were allowed to keep seven forwards, three ...

Morales: 25 memories from 25 years on boxing beat

Twenty-five years. That’s how long this column has been alive, as of March 7. It seems only right I should come up with 25 memories. Although the first is No. 1, the rest just fall in as I recall them. These are not all pleasant. 1) The greatest fight I’ve covered was the first ring war between Diego Corrales and Jose Luis Castillo on May 7, 2005 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Corrales was decked twice in the 10th round of an all-out slug-fest and appeared done. Corrales somehow rose both times –...
