Alexander: It turns out Pandemic Sports wasn’t as simple as we thought

We became complacent, didn’t we? We saw the NBA operate successfully in a bubble for three months. We saw Major League Baseball weather an early rash of COVID infections and not only play all but a handful of its scheduled games but get to the eighth inning of the final game of the season before its postseason bubble was pierced. Surely, expanded testing and stringent protocols even without the benefit of bubbles would enable the NFL and college football and basketball to roll through the advers...

Rams face 49ers, who have had their number lately

When a bright young coach seems to have the NFL all figured out, sooner or later the league will get him figured out. It happened to Rams coach Sean McVay after his innovative offense was the rage in 2018. It can happen to Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley any week, month or year now. “I think that’s something definitely Brandon will have to be ready for in the offseason, when the whole league gets to study the special things those guys are doing over there (on the defensive side),” Rams...

Werner Herzog Says ‘Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans’ is One of His Essential Films

Fitzcarraldo. Grizzly Man. Aguirre, the Wrath of God. Little Dieter Needs to Fly. These are what many cinephiles might call the essential Werner Herzog films. For anyone who saw him for the first time as an actor in The Mandalorian, were intrigued by him, learned he was also an acclaimed director, and are looking to dive into his filmography, those entries would be a good place to start. But if you ask the man himself, another film should be included in those ranks: 2009’s Bad Lieutenant: Port ...

Famed New Orleans Music Producer Mark Bingham Discusses His Songs and Collaborations: A Nakedly Examined Music Conversation (#136) You’re most likely to know Mark’s work from the string introduction to REM’s “Shiny Happy People,” but he’s been a staple of the New Orleans recording scene since he moved there in 1982, producing groups like Flat Duo Jets, Glenn Branca, John Scofield, Marianne Faithful, and the Rebirth Brass Band.

Lakers’ offseason roster reshuffling: 5 key takeaways

The stars are the same, but much of the cast is profoundly different.

Election Days I Have Known

My birthday is November 3, 1979. This means that Election Day 2020 in the United States was also my 41st birthday. It was a very strange birthday. But I believe that anyone born in the first week of November who lives and/or votes in this country often finds themselves celebrating strange birthdays. Their memories and experiences of those days are different, more vivid, and more hopelessly entwine the political, civic, and personal. I was very nearly born on November 2. That was my mother’s 28t...

Remembering Ellis Marsalis And His Outsized Influence

Happy endings don’t happen often during a novel coronavirus pandemic. Marsalis, eighty-five, died in New Orleans of complications from the virus on April 1. But when the crying is over and Marsalis gets the jazz funeral he deserves, even the most sober study of his contributions to music might begin with a celebratory cork popping from a bottle of champagne. Jazz spoke to him early, in a way that no music had before, and in its service, his character was revealed. –

Ex-Trojan Ronald Jones has been a grinder on the ground for Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay was up 20-17 on Carolina, uncomfortably so, in the third quarter. The Bucs had the ball on their own 2-yard-line. They were coming off a Monday Night embarrassment at the hands of New Orleans. “This is the time of the year when good teams take care of business and bad teams tank,” said tight end Rob Gronkowski, who has been in this time of year all his professional life. Tampa Bay has spent 10 seasons in the tank, without a playoff game since 2007. That is when Ronald Jones pulled the ...
