Angels' Jered Weaver pushes through with 3-2 victory over Rangers

As the sand descends in the hourglass of his career, Jered Weaver marches on, taking the ball every fifth day no matter how beat-up his body feels, how many miles he has racked up on his arm or how many starts he has left. The Angels right-hander is in the final three weeks of the five-year, $85-million...

Hillary Clinton's worrisome wobble

It’s no secret that I believe Hillary Clinton is the best choice for president. Throughout the months I’ve been writing about the election, I’ve been consistently attacked for being “in Clinton’s pocket” on my personal email account, on Facebook, on Twitter, even in Instagram messages. But there’s...

Writer-director Adam Leon's 'Tramps' steals a little romance

TIFF: Nate Parker's 'The Birth of a Nation' Oscar tour gets off to a surrealistically uneventful start in Toronto Sept. 11, 2016, 4:52 p.m. Even though Nate Parker and 'Birth of a Nation' -- which had its premiere at the 41st Toronto International Film Festival last night -- are on everyone's minds,...

Thoughts for the coming week of college football

Three thoughts for the coming week: 1.) If Oklahoma has any hope of a national championship run, the No. 14 Sooners might have to come through in a big way on Saturday. After an upset loss to Houston and a cakewalk against Louisiana-Monroe, they get No. 3 Ohio State at home with a chance to jump...

Tavon Austin is expected to play central role in Rams' opener against 49ers

The Rams purposely kept receiver Tavon Austin out of the mix during the exhibition season, a ploy to prevent the San Francisco 49ers and other teams from collecting scouting material. On Monday night at Levi’s Stadium, Austin is expected to play a central role for the Rams offense and special teams...

The Rams and 49ers are ready to renew an old L.A.-San Francisco rivalry

It was once among the best rivalries in the NFL. Through the 1970s and ’80s, the Los Angeles Rams or the San Francisco 49ers won all but two NFC West division titles. The Rams’ return to Southern California after a 21-year absence could spark a renewal, starting tonight when they open their season...

Goodbye Britain, hello Beverly Hills: Newly arrived artistic director of the Wallis throws an open house

It’s a thumbs up kind of day.    Paul Crewes, the new artistic director of the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, positions himself atop the venue’s stone entrance steps on Saturday afternoon to greet a crowd of about 200 culture seekers – families pushing strollers,...

Football: Sophomore QB Jonathan Hawkins comes through for Sierra Canyon

When your starting quarterback goes down, sometimes it's panic time. Teams rely so much on one individual and don't always have confidence in the backup. But Sierra Canyon has found a replacement for the injured Niko Harris based on the Trailblazers' 39-32 win over Grace Brethren on Friday. His...

Controversial calls happen in college football, but outcomes should stand

No one ever said college football was fair. That’s not why we watch games on Saturday afternoons. We’re not looking for thoughtful deliberation or due process — we want to see two teams go at it and, in the end, we want a winner. Which is precisely why the powers-that-be should not go back and...

Often mistaken for others, Rams GM Les Snead is trying to build relocated Rams into contenders

It usually happens at an airport gate. Les Snead will notice people whispering, and one will ask, “Are you Matthew McConaughey?” A fan was once so convinced that Snead was former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre that he insisted on an autograph. Snead finally obliged by signing, “Brett...

Chargers blow 17-point lead in fourth quarter and fall to Chiefs in overtime

Alex Smith dived for a touchdown on the first possession of overtime, completing the Kansas City Chiefs' frantic rally from a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the San Diego Chargers, 33-27, in their season opener Sunday.  Smith threw for 363 yards and two touchdowns, the second a back-shoulder...

Eagles rookie Carson Wentz, Texans veteran Brock Osweiler stellar in winning debuts

Carson Wentz had 278 yards passing and two touchdowns in his NFL debut and the Philadelphia Eagles beat Robert Griffin III and the Cleveland Browns, 29-10, on Sunday in Philadelphia.  Promoted from No. 3 quarterback to starter just eight days ago, the No. 2 overall pick from North Dakota State...

Angels broadcasters are split on decision to pull Rich Hill from perfect game

Rams will log a lot of air miles and they'll need to take flight on field too

Since the NFL approved their return to Los Angeles in January the Rams have been on the move, sometimes dizzyingly so. A team meeting in Manhattan Beach. Off-season workouts in Oxnard. Training camp in Orange County and now a temporary home in Thousand Oaks. Forget playbooks loaded on those team-issued...

Likeability aside, Jeff Fisher has to prove to Rams fans that he's a keeper

Jeff Fisher would be a cool uncle. With shorts, flip-flops, and funky glasses hanging from his neck on a string, his presence is chill. Yet with a bit of gravel in the voice and salt in the pepper hair, his aura is wise. Fisher is the older relative you hang with at the family picnic, the one who...

Why do people drink so much tomato juice on airplanes?

The other day, I found a reason (as one does) to consult “Dreams: Hidden Meanings and Secrets,” a guide to the unconscious mind first published in the 1940s. “To drink tomato juice,” reads one entry, “predicts travel by airplane.” Sure, that makes sense. Many of us associate tomato juice with airplanes....
