Where to celebrate Pride in the US

Since the inception of the pride parade, no year has ever mattered quite as much as 2019.

So, this year, to commemorate this culturally and historically important moment, every pride parade across the nation is promising to provide entertainment that is bigger and better than ever.

Best certified US Neapolitan pizzas

Italians take their pizza quite seriously, and nowhere in Italy takes it more seriously than the city of Naples. This is a major surprise to absolutely no one, but what you might not know — unless you’re fortunate enough to spend your working hours stirring sauce and pounding out dough — is that there’s an organization whose sole mission is to make sure that Neapolitan pizza remains free of false bravado. The group is called the Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana, and its mission is to“promot...

Left out: Dodgers maximize Joc Pederson’s production by minimizing exposure to lefties

Joc Pederson is a man in a box. An important, productive piece of the Dodgers’ lineup against right-handed pitching, Pederson has an 1.105 OPS this season and is one of the first three players in the National League to reach double digits in home runs (along with MVP candidates Cody Bellinger and Christian Yelich). When the Dodgers face left-handed pitching, however, Pederson doesn’t play. He just doesn’t. “What am I going to do, (complain) and be a bad teammate? What good would that do?” Peders...

Revisiting David Poile’s Drafts – 2002

For the past few weeks, I’ve been diving into David Poile’s draft history as general manager of the Nashville Predators.

Bucks, Rockets have shot to sweep Pistons and Jazz on road

DETROIT (AP) — Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo and Houston’s James Harden were this season’s leading NBA MVP candidates .

Dodgers just waiting for A.J. Pollock to get hot

MILWAUKEE — It’s not that A.J. Pollock has gotten off to a terrible start. He just hasn’t gotten off to a good one. Out of the starting lineup Sunday for only the third time in the Dodgers’ first 24 games, Pollock carried a .238 batting average to the bench with him. His on-base (.305) and slugging (.369) percentages lag well behind his career norms. Over the previous 11 games, he was just 6 for 33 (.182). “Honestly, it’s a long season. I kind of know the ups and downs of everything,” Pollock sa...

Christian Yelich homers twice as Brewers snap Dodgers’ winning streak

MILWAUKEE — When fans buy a ticket for a game at Miller Park, there’s really only one thing on their minds. Will Christian Yelich homer before or after the Sausage Race? He did both Saturday, hitting two home runs — one before and one after the grandaddy of costumed mascot racing — as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Dodgers 5-0. The loss snapped a six-game winning streak for the Dodgers. Yelich leads the majors with 13 home runs — one short of the record for home runs before May 1 shared by Alber...

Analysis: 3-point shooting might be biggest problem a new Lakers coach will tackle

Over half a dozen times this past season, Kyle Kuzma changed his shooting form. Sometimes it was the stroke. Sometimes it was where he landed. Tweaking, tweaking, always tweaking. And yet, after a sophomore campaign in which he shot just a hair over 30 percent from 3-point range, in the end, he decided that it was the tinkering that hurt his shooting more than any original flaw. “For me, I kind of over-analyzed my jump shot this year,” he said after the season ended. “Thought about it way too mu...

Consistent approach at the plate has Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger rolling

MILWAUKEE — Ten games into this season, Cody Bellinger led the majors in home runs, RBIs, slugging percentage, hits, total bases and runs. That blazing start wouldn’t go unnoticed, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said at the time. “This series and going forward,” Roberts said as the Dodgers began a four-game series in St. Louis. “Everyone watches the highlights and you’re not going to let the hot guy beat you. But for a young player, that’s where you have to still stay stubborn in the strike zone.”...
