Theme parks’ billion-dollar game of chicken

Disney, Universal and every other company that owns and operates theme parks have been playing a multi-billion-dollar game of chicken this year. Do you go ahead and open your new attractions in the middle of a pandemic, or do you hold them until the travel industry recovers? New capital drives attendance in the theme park business. But if an external circumstance such as a pandemic is going to keep people from visiting, is now the best time to roll out an expensive new investment? Or is now the ...

Injuries Could Derail Season For Defending NFC Champ 49ers

The injury bug that has disrupted the San Francisco 49ers’ season seems impossible to contain. The 49ers had to wait a few extra hours to confirm that 2019 Defensive Rookie of the Year Nick Bosa had a season-ending torn ACL and were still waiting to hear about the status of fellow starting defensive lineman Solomon Thomas. An MRI truck expected to meet them at their hotel in West Virginia broke down, leading to the delay. The broken-down truck, however, is the least of coach Kyle Shanahan’s conc...

Chargers take on Chiefs hoping to give themselves a better chance to win

INGLEWOOD — Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward was baffled when told not many people are giving his team a chance to upset the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at SoFi Stadium. “I didn’t even know nobody was giving us a chance,” Hayward said. “I didn’t even know. They are the Super Bowl champs, so I’m pretty sure it is in their favor to win the game.” The oddsmakers have the Chiefs favored by 8 ½ points, and pundits can’t imagine a clunky Chargers’ offense that was on display in Week 1 keeping pace w...

Chiefs can relate to Chargers’ QB dilemma with Tyrod Taylor, Justin Herbert

COSTA MESA — Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor will get opportunities to correct the mistakes he had last week against the Cincinnati Bengals during his first start in nearly two years. Taylor missed throws, struggled to get the offense in rhythm and failed to convert two fourth-and-short plays in the second quarter with him keeping the ball. “Convert them,” Taylor jokingly said Wednesday when asked what he could have done better on the two plays. “Just execute better and it starts with me. I ca...

A Humbling Return to Veggie Gardening

I knew full well what I was getting into. My dormant gardening genes from my father’s side kicked in back in 1987, soon after my wife and I bought our first house. I had grown up around gardens. My Dad had a rock garden in the backyard and also a vegetable plot in a nearby community garden. I loved working in that veggie garden until I reached an age where sex, drugs, and rock and roll became a distraction. But I did have that early exposure to both vegetable and ornamental gardening as a kid, a...

Daddy’s Hangout 2020 Week 2 NFL Predictions

Welcome to 2020 NFL season Week 2 after an exciting opening weekend. Speaking of the 2020 NFL opening week, things started out bad. My record was 8-8, which is a 50% winning percentage. We kicked out the opening week with the defending champion, Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans. The Chiefs defeated the Texans in a battle between two of brightest QBs in the league. Week 1 ended with two Monday Night games to cap things off. We had the Pittsburgh Steelers defeat the New York Giants ...

Here's how 7 prominent ex-Vikings fared in debuts with new teams

The Vikings had a clunker of a 2020 opener Sunday for a variety of reasons. One of them: They had a lot of roster turnover, particularly on defense, and their new additions on that side of the ball struggled mightily in a 43-34 loss to the Packers. A lot of those prominent former players are on other teams now. In case you were wondering, here's how seven of them fared Sunday: *Xavier Rhodes: The 30-year-old former first-round pick and a staple of the Vikings' defense for seven seasons was the t...

Tyrod Taylor, Chargers let the other team lose, for once

The Chargers and Bengals locked arms during the anthems at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati Sunday. Then the game started and they never did get untangled. It was a microcosm of all the Game Ones you’ve seen when two representatives of the NFL’s mediocre middle get together. Lots of punts, lots of bogged-down third downs, strange coaching and officiating decisions, and finally a wide-right field goal try by Bengals kicker Randy Bullock, who grabbed his leg almost immediately. At least the jilted...

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn isn’t new to creating impactful change

Ruth Thompson recalled being star-struck when she first met Chargers coach Anthony Lynn at the annual “Red, White and Boom” Fourth of July parade in McKinney, Texas, six years ago. At the time, Thompson was preparing to open Hugs Cafe, a nonprofit organization that trains and employs adults with special needs. Lynn’s niece, Marty Cole, was training to work at the cafe. Lynn attended the parade in his hometown because Cole was riding the Hugs Cafe’s float. Thompson, a Denver native and rabid Bron...

Chargers vs. Bengals analysis: Linval Joseph key to slowing Joe Mixon

COSTA MESA — The focus has been on quarterback Joe Burrow making his NFL debut against the Chargers’ defense Sunday. But it’s the other Joe on the Cincinnati Bengals’ offense the Chargers should be more concerned about. Joe Mixon, one of the best running backs in the NFL, could present the Chargers with many challenges, including something as basic as tackling. “With a guy like that, you gotta make sure you’re hitting him in the right spots,” Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa said about Mixon. “T...

Alexander: The NFL is back? Already??

Until 2020, it would be hard to imagine the NFL sneaking up on anybody. (Of course, until 2020 it would be hard to imagine a lot of things we’ve seen come to pass in Pandemic Life.) And so if you are unprepared, or discombobulated, or otherwise nonplussed by the sudden return of pro football to our TV screens, don’t feel bad. I suspect you have company. The return of America’s Most Self Absorbed Sport came Thursday, actually, when the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs began their ...

Chargers’ Gus Bradley won’t be friendly with Joe Burrow until after Sunday’s game

COSTA MESA — Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley asked his players who recently played at Ohio State for a scouting report on quarterback Joe Burrow. This was way before Bradley was scheduled to face Burrow in an NFL game. Bradley’s Chargers and Burrow’s Bengals will meet Sunday for the season opener in Cincinnati. This was last year before Burrow had arguably the greatest college season ever for a quarterback. Bradley wasn’t planning ahead for facing Burrow at the pro level. At the time,...

Chargers WR Mike Williams limited in return to practice

COSTA MESA — Chargers offensive coordinator Shane Steichen was asked twice Wednesday which wide receivers will play more if Mike Williams isn’t able to play for Sunday’s season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. Steichen offered the same answer. “I think that will play itself out toward the end of the week throughout practice,” Steichen said. Either Steichen wanted to give the safe answer or he didn’t want to repeat himself. Last week, Steichen offered an optimistic response by saying he loo...

Do the Rams still have a window, or will they face some pain?

Nineteen months ago, the Los Angeles Rams were the hot stock, the closest thing to a sure thing in the unsure world of pro football. The Super Bowl that they lost to New England seemed a mere flesh wound. They had Todd Gurley and Aaron Donald, the offensive and defensive players of the year in 2017 and first team All-Pros in 2018, and they had Sean McVay, the Mozart of NFL coaches, and their special teams were the league standard. They anticipated marching into their new Inglewood stadium, the o...
