Anxious NBC executives are surely breaking out in rivers of flop sweat. COVID-19 cases are on the rise in Tokyo, and the games, postponed last year because of coronavirus fears, will be held in mostly empty venues to minimize health risks. Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga recently announced that a state of emergency will ...

Belmont kicks off Triple Crown, with Tiz the Law favored

It’s been 17 years since Jack Knowlton and his Sackatoga Stable pals rode yellow school buses to the Belmont Stakes. It was a rollicking party on wheels for the group that came to watch their colt Funny Cide try to sweep the Triple Crown. It didn’t happen that day. Now, the ownership group that buys just one or two New York-bred colts a year is back to try again with Tiz the Law. He’s the star of a 10-horse field for the Belmont on Saturday, perhaps the biggest event in U.S. sports since the cor...

President Trump does not usually forsake an opportunity to take aim at a critic, but when it came to Rory McIlroy playing in a charity skins game on Sunday, the leader of the free world decided to take the political equivalent of a lay-up. Trump’s contribution to the first male golf on live TV in more than two months had the potential to inject a huge dose of controversy to the much-heralded match that saw McIlroy win the bizarre nearest-the-pin finale on the first extra hole that was worth $1.1...

Alexander: Garcetti, Fauci comments underline how bad it might become

So if we’re going to be optimistic, let’s assume – or, at least, hope – that the 2021 Rose Bowl will be the party to end all parties. If Mayor Eric Garcetti nails his assessment, New Year’s Day in Pasadena might be our first opportunity to again witness a sporting event live, in person, with thousands of fellow Angelenos. Or maybe not. Maybe even January will be too soon. The antsiness to resume some sense of normalcy in our lives continues to run up against, and bounce off of, the science. The ...
