Where Mike Trout’s deal would land among the 10 biggest contracts in pro sports history

If the Angels and Mike Trout agree to their rumored monster contract extension Tuesday – which would bring his deal an eye-popping 12 years and $426.5 million – it would be the most lucrative in baseball history and second all-time professional sports. The extension, for 10 years and $360 million, will be on top of the $66.5 million Trout will be paid over the next two years, the final two of his current contract. It would also mean baseball players currently hold nine of the top 10 spots for la...

GRAYWOLF RODS - McFarland Rods Yellow Glass 7'6" Spinning Rod

After a couple of decades really being a "Fly Only" kind of guy, lately I've seen where a spinning rod would be helpful to have around and asked Shane Gray of Graywolf Rods if he could talk Mike McFarland of McFarland Rods into rolling a medium heavy spinning rod blank.  It took some work to get right but Mike made up a beauty in yellow glass, four pieces for ease of travel and of course Shane's done a great job on the build that should arrive on my doorstep early next week. I can't wait to mess...

Friday Roundup

Photo by Daniel Brannan via  Clare and Blake’s Relaxed Mornington Peninsula Wedding It has been a week Dotties, between Facebook and what felt like the entire internet imploding (I’m looking at you too Gmail and Instagram), and our own personal computers, it’s been an epic week of tech fails. Luckily, we’ve been taking respite in all the beauty of The Bouquet Issue, because when computers hate us, there is beauty in beautiful weddings (like the gorgeous Clare above who shared her day over on Pol...

This Week In Trailers: Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window, The Wind, Screwball, Amazing Grace, Relaxer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we get on the bus, get horrific in the wild west, get ready for a new baseball season, pay respect to Aretha Franklin’s greatness, a...

Hurricanes’ GM Waddell: “A Slow Day in ‘Canes World”

As the clock approached 3 p.m. on Monday, fans of the Carolina Hurricanes felt something familiar: nothing. Despite the anticipation leading up to the day, like most of their Trade Deadlines of late, the team was inactive. A team that arguably still has holes to fill chose to wait until the postseason to make any significant moves. Waddell: “We Made Our Big Trade” Hurricanes general manager, Don Waddell met with the media after Monday’s deadline and started by thanking everyone for coming out ...

Ex-FBI deputy: Rosenstein cited two people who might have pursued Trump ouster

McCabe, speaking to reporters to promote his book “The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terrorism and Trump," said he could not recall which two Cabinet members Rosenstein mentioned without access to memos of the 2017 conversation. "I at no time got the impression that he had actually sought support or talked to those people about it," McCabe said. "It was simply Rod thinking off the top of his head - this is a thing that could be done." In September the New York Times repor...

Remodelista Essentials: 25 Inexpensive, Surprisingly Good-Looking Design Finds from the Hardware Store

Consider this our ode to the humble hardware store, the affordable emporium of just about anything you need (and several things you didn’t know you needed). The wares in a hardware store epitomize beauty in function: these are practical workhorses, often designs that haven’t changed in decades (or even centuries); they’re built to last, sometimes multi-purpose—and many of them are surprisingly good-looking. And there’s something old-fashioned about wandering the aisles of the iconic hardware sto...

Winter brings on a time for reflection and creativity. Here are two of my latest projects.   Rebirth of an American Original:   I purchased a highly used Savage Stevens 311 side by side shotgun in 20 gauge this winter. This blue-collar piece of Americana looked like somebody had glued shotgun parts to a stock for a Daisy red-ryder BB-gun. Selling for less than $100 new, these shotguns were made bombproof. They were utility no-frills hunting tools and had to function even after being throw...

US deputy attorney general 'to step down' after Trump accuses him of treason

The US Justice Department official who once oversaw the Russia probe, Rod Rosenstein, plans to resign in mid-March, US news outlets reported. Rosenstein's departure from his post as deputy attorney general has been expected for some time.

What if my car just looks better with only one license plate?

Q. Hello Mr. Honk: I read Mr. Ball’s question and your reply last week regarding the state requirement for a front-mounted license plate, in addition to the one in the back. We recently purchased a new car and there is nowhere to mount a front plate other than to drill holes and/or cover the cooling fans. If we are pulled over for the lack of a front plate, is this a moving violation against the driver’s license or a fix-it ticket? When driving all over the Southland, I do notice the many cars w...

The Tanuki Ninja fly-fishing rod brings the ancient Japanese art to the mainstream

Tenkara, or Japanese fly-fishing borders on pure artistry. You don’t reel a line out or reel a fish in. You rely purely on physics, mechanics, handwork, and an understanding of your gear. Just a rod, a line, and some artificial fly lure, or ‘kebari’ as the Japanese call it, and you’re set to go.Designer and Engineer Luong Tam has devoted a significant part of his life to this hobby of his, turning it into a profession of sorts.

Whicker: Despite its wounded image, is football beginning to heal itself?

ATLANTA — The cultural needle, wielded by Saturday Night Live, pointed squarely at football last March. The bit was an interview with sporting champions. Charles Barkley and Alex Rodriguez were joined by cast member Kenan Thompson, playing D.C. Timmons, “the hardest-hitting man in football” as a Pittsburgh linebacker. Barkley and Rodriguez were suave and funny. Timmons was a one-car pileup. He kept calling his fellow guests “Greg.” He talked about how tough football was and said, “If you want to...
