    There's a new Kobe in town at Cathedral High
    Don't be surprised if Filipino flags are being waved en masse this winter in the gym at Los Angeles Cathedral High. There are more than 375,000 Filipinos living in Los Angeles County, and a 17-year-old basketball prodigy with more than 50,000 Twitter...
  • Against all expectations, it's Cowboy up in the NFL

    Tony Romo, with his jagged peaks and valleys, will always be a centerpiece of Dallas Cowboys conversations. And DeMarco Murray has been so hot lately he could bring any water cooler to a boil. But the biggest surprise of the NFL's shocker team this...

    Chris Pronger's new job with NHL has appearance of conflict

    (Tony) Romo is burning, and so are Cowboys with fifth straight win
    Oh, snap! The site of Dallas quarterback Tony Romo's career low point — a botched hold on a 19-yard field-goal attempt at the end of a January 2007 playoff game at Seattle — looked closer to a turning point for the suddenly scorching...
  • SEC's West division has nation's (and pollsters') undivided attention

    SEC's West division has nation's (and pollsters') undivided attention
    The SEC West is truly remarkable. It is 90% dominance, which is to be admired, and 10% snake charmer. No man behind a curtain has worked levers more deftly. The Southeastern Conference's glamour division not only has five or six (or seven?) of the...

    Angels don't meet expectations in Game 1 of division series
    The happiest place on Earth on Thursday night was supposed to be just a mile or so down the street from the Happiest Place on Earth. The best fireworks were going to be at the Big A. That's because the Angels, with the best record in baseball, were at...
  • Ignore NFL chatter. If L.A. wants a team, here's the plan.

    Ah, once again, we have the story of the NFL returning to Los Angeles. It's not really a story. Just a bunch of beeps and winks and whispers and nods. It's a story made for Twitter. It can easily be covered in 140 characters that add nothing, which is...
  • Raiders' Sparano stages ball burial in latest in long line of ploys

    A funeral doesn't sound like a good way to motivate a losing football team. Well, maybe if it's the type of service Tony Sparano held this week as interim coach of the Oakland Raiders, burying a football at the practice facility of the 0-4 team to...
  • Ned Colletti could lose his job after Dodgers' quick playoff exit

    Ned Colletti could lose his job after Dodgers' quick playoff exit
