Rams’ Johnny Hekker has team excited about punts in win over Bears

INGLEWOOD — A big game for the punter is often a bad game for his team. Not for Johnny Hekker and the Rams on Monday night in their 24-10 victory against the Chicago Bears. “I’m usually not getting off the bench for a punt,” Rams quarterback Jared Goff joked, but there he’d been, joining in the sideline mob scene after one of Hekker’s long punts. All five times he was called on, the four-time All-Pro made the most of it. He put every kick inside the Bears’ 10-yard line, including a 57-yarder to ...

Alexander: Roz Wyman is still the Dodgers’ No. 1 fan

If this were a normal World Series – like anything in 2020 is normal, right? – Roz Wyman would be at Dodger Stadium for Tuesday night’s Game 6 in her field level seat, on the third base side of home plate and adjacent to where the umpires enter the field. It is not in The Ravine, of course. The Dodgers have made Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, their second home during this neutral-site postseason, and that is where they will attempt to win the World Series and end 32 years of waiting. But ...

Black Americans Are Fired Up And Flocking To The Polls In California And Other States

(CNN) — Dave Richards arrived at his polling place before dawn, carrying a blue lawn chair and a giant bottle of water. It was about 6 a.m. on October 12 — the first day of early voting in Georgia — and the business consultant was ready for a long wait in the Atlanta suburb of Smyrna. After three hours in line, Richards, 51, voted in what he called the most crucial election of his lifetime. “This election is more important than the 2008 one for Barack Obama.

Penn State, Falcons learn: Scoring a touchdown can be a losing play

It's the most counterintuitive notion in football: Those rare instances where scoring a touchdown on offense is a bad idea that actually decreases the scoring team's chances of winning. But it played out twice in spectacular (depending on which side you were on) fashion this weekend, with the part-math, part-instinct problem rearing its head in a huge college football upset and an NFL game between two teams who both could have used a win. Here's a look at the situations at how both played out: *...

Alexander: For Dodgers, one victory away from ending the wait

One more victory to a World Series championship, and two chances to get it. Did you ever think the Dodgers would reach that point? They’re there. They have a chance to turn the devastating insanity of Saturday night’s ninth inning into a footnote. They have an opportunity to end a 32-season drought, and particularly to wipe away the frustration of the last seven Octobers with teams that were good enough to win, and in some cases should have won, but didn’t. Tuesday night in Arlington, Texas, Ton...

Snippy over Trump-Biden, California voters unload in hair salons, barbershops

Barbershops and beauty salons have always been about more than the shave and a haircut, or the mani-pedi. They’ve often been a refuge from the stresses and divisions of the outside world, a place to settle into a swivel chair and exhale. After all, you can’t really doom-scroll during a French manicure. But just as California salons are finally reopening after a punishing pandemic lockdown, the race between President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden is coming down to its final week — and...

Accidental exploration...

 The urban geography of Indianapolis is similar to Atlanta in that it has a perimeter highway, I-465 instead of I-285, and is basically quartered by the main north-south and east-west interstates inside that perimeter. Atlanta's east-west interstate is I-20 and Indy's is I-70, while I-65 traverses the inner metro of IND in the same general northwest-to-due-south orientation as I-75 in the ATL.Yesterday I drove down to the general area of Bloomington, IN, and my path out of town caused me to muse...

United Airlines had opted not to renew a contract with the airline, crippling its flying business despite having a reputation for being a reliable carrier.  Thousands of employees were laid off as a result and America lost one of its largest airlines.

Alexander: Austin Barnes is more than just a personal catcher

The Fox broadcast guys were fumbling with this one. Austin Barnes, heretofore Clayton Kershaw’s personal catcher and now appearing to add Walker Buehler’s starts to his resumé, had just followed a near-perfect safety squeeze bunt in the fourth inning with a booming 425-foot home run into the Tampa Bay bullpen in the sixth, for the Dodgers’ sixth run in their 6-2 Game 3 victory on Friday night. At first, John Smoltz suggested – guessed? – that it might have been the first time it ever happened in...

Biden’s oil remark tests voter resolve on climate change

By Ellen Knickmeyer and Kathleen Ronayne | Associated Press OKLAHOMA CITY — Joe Biden is confronting the harsh political realities of combating climate change. The Democratic presidential nominee has spent months touting a $2 trillion plan to boost investment in clean energy and stop all climate-damaging emissions from the U.S. economy by 2050. The plan implied that he would wean the U.S. off oil and gas, but Biden wasn’t so explicit about the industry’s fate — until Thursday night. During the f...
