Zach LaVine: UCLA wasn't indication of point guard's upside

NBA With media members waiting, Zach LaVine walked over, stood front and center and announced his name and college without pretension. He believed those gathered might not know he is a lottery prospect or that he attended UCLA.  LaVine was right to make such an assumption, not because folks are unaware of his name or college, but because there is little else known about him. He is similar to a pair of other UCLA guards — Russell Westbrook and Jrue...

Drinks in a dark and dingy Japanese alleyway

After months of continually extended states of emergency that mostly affected the nation’s bar and restaurant industry, restrictions have finally been relaxed, and life is once again a little bit more like it used to be. This may change of course as we head towards autumn, but for now at least, the option of enjoying an evening out is on again, and as my last outside drinks were on Christmas Day in the alleyway below (photos and audio here), it seemed entirely fitting that the first foray of 202...

A Spritz cocktail never tastes as good here as it does in Italy. In...
