    Jim Nantz excited to be on the call for the Bears-Lions Thanksgiving game

    Fan of the house: Give him that old-time boxing
    Boxing was our first sport, and will probably be our last. Humans are an easily provoked species. Wars — not love-ins — are the milestones on which we plot our purported evolution. Look at Congress, that bunch of brawlers. Now look away (while...
  • The Garretts surely will be giving thanks

    The game was 20 years ago, yet Jim Garrett remembers it as if it happened last week. After all, his stroke sapped the strength from his legs, but it didn't rob him of his memories. A father doesn't forget watching his son play quarterback for the Dallas...
  • NFL Week 13: Philip Rivers helps Left Coast get it right in Baltimore

    On a Sunday when Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady squared off for the first time in their illustrious NFL careers, and Johnny Manziel scored for the first time in his less-than-illustrious rookie season, it was another first that kept the San Diego Chargers in...

    For all the changes taking place in high school football — the rise of transfers, the reliance on walk-on coaches, the increasing emphasis on college recruiting, the pressure to win a championship at all costs — there's still those special...
  • Lakers will be chasing wrong kind of history this season

    There may be banners signifying 16 titles hanging from the Staples Center wall, but, right now, the traditional question of whether the Lakers will win a championship has been replaced with something a bit less majestic. Will they ever win a game? The...
  • Arizona State's matchup against Notre Dame could hurt title chances

    The Pac-12 Conference still isn't very good at football scheduling. It encourages its schools to play tough nonconference games, even in November, at the risk of everything. It is already at a competitive disadvantage, its 12 teams each playing nine...
  • Kings lose winning touch at home in 2-1 shootout loss to Islanders

    There are no style points to be won in the NHL, but there are consolation points to be banked and lessons to be taken when one point is the reward instead of two. The Kings got a mild wake-up call Thursday at Staples Center but got one point from a 2-...
  • College football: What to watch Saturday on TV

    College football: What to watch Saturday on TV
    Each week our national college football writer describes how he would handle the television remote on Saturday, handicapping what's worth watching, and skipping: MORNING Presbyterian (5-4) at No. 11 Mississippi (7-2) 9 a.m., SEC Network...
  • Kings continue stumbling on road as they fall, 5-4, to Dallas

    The team that fearlessly won three Game 7s on the road en route to claiming the Stanley Cup last spring has forgotten how to win away games, forgotten how to use its size and strength and brawn to dominate around the net and consistently get into position...
