  1. Heaton should be man of the match, despite letting in 3. Burnley's defending is atrocious. A lot of standing around and wondering what the opposing player might do with the ball.
  2. Tier 1: UCLA Football & Basketball (though given how bad the AD is, this is starting to slip), Lakers, Dodgers (was Tier 4 while that thief McCourt owned the team) Tier 2: FC Barcelona, Chicago Bears (slipping steadily due to my waning interest in the team and NFL) Tier 3: Stanford football, LSU football, Duke basketball, LA Kings, LA Galaxy Tier 4: Atlanta Hawks, UCLA sports outside of FB & BB, Stanford sports outside of FB, UC Santa Barbara athletics, Army football Tier 5: Oakland Raiders, San Antonio Spurs, Sevilla FC, Miami Dolphins, any team playing USC, SF Giants, Real Madrid, or the Celtics
  3. That was brutal. He got away with the first one and I was hoping he would not immediately go back to the well but...oof. I thought it was the right move from Roberts, as I thought Blanton could have gotten through the inning and I liked the Dodgers' chances in the 9th with Chapman out, but Blanton picked a most inopportune time to replace his slider with his gopher ball instead.
  4. Great strike. Here's a crazy one I stumbled across from low-level German soccer: Off the crossbar
  5. Fantastic save from Foster at the end to preserve a point against Tottenham
  6. This was a fun little time waster - still haven't figured out for whom to vote, as three of my all-time favorites (Batistuta, Ronaldo, Messi) are in the mix: Favorite Trademark Finish
  7. I've had Bruin season seats since '91 and I'm convinced that UCLA and the City of Pasadena have gotten together on some psychology/sociology study to figure out how bizarre and challenging they can make exiting a stadium and its surroundings before touching off a full-scale riot. Each year they make it slightly worse than the season before. I haven't parked there in years, but occasionally carpool with someone who has a parking pass. This year's process for getting to the freeway is truly amazing in its stupidity and lack of convenience.

  9. "Survival kit contents check. In them you'll find: one forty-five caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days' concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Russian phrase book and Bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair of nylon stockings. Shoot, a fella' could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff." Love that movie. So good.
  10. Please make this happen, Lynn Swann.
  11. The Coliseum sucks for watching football. So many of those seats make you feel like you're not quite in the stadium and many others have terrible sight lines. Getting in and out of there is really difficult as well, though there is a Metro rail line that will take you there. That might be the way to get there if you are heading to a game at the Coliseum.
  12. Cahill...oof. Sweet finish from Sanchez. Gotta love a calm chip of the keeper.
  13. Jesus. Glad I missed that yesterday.
  14. If you're doing Half Dome, you'll need a permit. Here's a link to the NPS site explaining the system. It gets really crowded (hence, the need for permits), especially on summer days. A fun hike I did with the family (kids were 10 and 7 then) was from Glacier Point to Sentinel Dome. Not too long or strenuous for the young ones, great views from the top of Sentinel.
