Alexander: In Rams’ case, the bandwagon effect isn’t bad at all

Usually we sneer, or at least look askance, at those “bandwagon” fans who become interested in a team just as it reaches the big stage. The normal inclination is to ask, “Well, where were you during the long, hard slog of the regular season?” But not here, and not now. If you are a new (or renewed) Rams fan, excited because of the first Super Bowl involving an L.A. team in 35 years (and the first involving an L.A. Rams team in 39 years) … well, welcome aboard. I’m guessing they won’t even ask, “...

Alexander: Dream deferred, but finally fulfilled for Adam Long at Desert Classic

LA QUINTA — This may not have come out of nowhere, necessarily, but the finish of the 60th anniversary Desert Classic was certainly a stunner. For three days, the Coachella Valley’s PGA Tour stop was Phil Mickelson’s to lose. The guy who was the face of The Tournament Formerly Known As The Bob Hope — the official tournament host, whose visage adorned billboards across the valley — led for 54 holes after rounds of 60, 68 and 66 and carried a two-shot lead into Sunday. Alas, the final round was on...

Kartje: In the NFL playoffs, there’s no place like home

Exactly six years ago, on a chilly night in Foxboro, Massachusetts, the Baltimore Ravens unseated the mighty New England Patriots in the AFC championship, stamping their ticket to the Super Bowl. An aggressive Ravens defense intercepted Tom Brady twice, and soon-to-be Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco threw three unanswered, second-half touchdowns to pull off an unexpected upset in the Patriots’ own stadium. That was the last time a road team won a conference championship game. In the 10 AFC or NFC titl...

Tom Brady gets called on claim that Pats are being disrespected

The Patriots have crafted a narrative that the perennial AFC power has faced doubt and disrespect during the 2018 postseason. “You know, everyone thinks we suck,” Brady said after the Pats thrashed the Chargers. During a Friday media availability, a reporter called Brady on his contention that no one believes in the Patriots, asking whether there's a “genuine feeling of disrespect” within the locker room.

The 10 Most Iconic Movie Cars

The 10 Most Iconic Movie Cars Many people live vicariously through movies. It always helps when audience members have something to relate to, whether it be a character, situation, or time period. Pretty much anyone can relate to the feeling of being behind the wheel of a car, hearing the engine roar and cruising down a two-lane blacktop. While some folks merely use cars as tools to get around, others consider cars a passion. It’s the same for filmmakers. Many treat the vehicles in their films...

What comes next after drama-filled 2018 season for Chargers?

Keenan Allen stalled as he slowly put on his “Slayer” merchandise. The Chargers’ wide receiver began to promote his clothing line by showing a gray beanie to the horde of media surrounding his locker. Allen was selling, but maybe he was buying time.

Chargers QB Philip Rivers to miss Pro Bowl with ankle injury

Quarterback Philip Rivers will not play in the Pro Bowl because of an ankle injury, a Chargers official told the Southern California News Group on Tuesday. Rivers was replaced on the AFC roster by Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. Rivers injured his ankle in the second half of the Chargers’ 41-28 playoff loss to the New England Patriots last week at Gillette Stadium. The injury is perceived as not serious and more of a safety precaution. Many veterans tend to skip the annual all-star game for rest ...

Daddy’s Hangout NFL 2019 Conference Championships Prediction

We’re down to the Final Four of the NFL. In the AFC, we have the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the defending conference champs, New England Patriots. While in the NFC, we have the New Orleans Saints hosting the Los Angeles Rams. My picks from last week had me guessing three out of the four teams correctly. My only blemish was thinking the Chargers would go to Foxboro and upset the Patriots. As we saw, New England dominated the game from the beginning. Tom Brady was as efficient as ever throwing f...

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — On the field, as long as you discount Sunday’s boat race against the Patriots, the 2018 season was an unqualified success for the Chargers.

Whicker: Road to Atlanta goes through New Orleans, and Rams know the directions

The instruction manual is there. It was printed and embossed behind enemy lines, in some Dallas Cowboys’ sanctum, but it was made public for all to see. It is the plan to put the brakes on the New Orleans Saints. There’s no guarantee it will work for the Rams in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. It might require 469 miles of stopping distance, which is the interval between New Orleans and Atlanta’s Super Bowl site. But it’s there, in a way it wasn’t there on the first Sunday in November, when...

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — A helpful Patriots fan draped a banner over the field railing at Gillette Stadium before Sunday’s game. It read: “Ready The Gun Powdah.” For what? To put the visiting Chargers out of their misery? This dreary afternoon, this 48-21 beatdown by New England in the AFC Divisional Round, was like playing Madden and setting it to “extreme embarrassment” level.
