Play On

March Madness is about a month away, but Wisconsin and Michigan, who played last Sunday at the Crisler Center, are assured of being in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, while Pittsburgh and North Carolina, who met at the Dean E. Smith Center on Saturday, should get in, but aren’t as certain. The No. 21-ranked Badgers’ […]

Defensive Dandy

Shooting the ball and scoring is fun, while playing defense is hard work and often overlooked. The Burbank High boys’ basketball team prides itself in the latter, used it against rival and host Burroughs in the Pacific League finale last Thursday night, and the result was a 57-32 lambasting. The Bulldogs (23 of 49 for […]

Imagine

Having accumulated 16 NBA world championship banners, including 11 in Los Angeles, the second most behind the Boston Celtics who have 17, the Lakers are one of the most recognized brands in the world. Following last season’s ouster in the first-round of the playoffs, the Lakers are on pace to finish with their third worst […]

Tight Squeeze

Evenly-matched talent resulted in an evenly-played Pacific League game between Burbank High and host Hoover this past Friday that saw the Bulldogs prevail, 57-56, after two three-pointers failed and a game-tying free throw also didn’t find the mark. With 25 seconds left the Bulldogs were ahead by two points and when senior small forward Richard […]

Chrysler’s New Ram Van Has Euro Style

Chrysler’s New Ram Van Has Euro Style

A funny thing happened to Chrysler during its various phases of ownership in recent years; it lost its large commercial van. When it was part of DaimlerChrysler, you could buy a Dodge Sprinter van, a tall diesel-powered van out of Europe that became very popular. But when Daimler-Benz said “buh-bye” to its American division and […]

Boom!

In a defensive display not seen since the 2000 Baltimore Ravens or the 1985 Chicago Bears, Seattle hurried and harassed Denver into four turnovers en route to a 43-8 pasting in Super Bowl XLVIII last Sunday at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey. The score at halftime was 22-0, and it wasn’t until the end of […]

Nitros Rally

Working under a handicap, the Glendale High boys’ basketball team suited up only eight players against Burroughs, but still managed to push aside the visiting Indians, 53-45, behind eight three-pointers last Friday evening in a Pacific League game. With 2:40 left in the third quarter, Glendale junior guard Eddie Uluchyan (nine points) tied it at […]

Classic?

It’s not often the two top-seeded teams make it to the NFL’s biggest game, but Denver and Seattle did and will face each other in Super Bowl XLVIII at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium this weekend. In a sense it’s the offensive powerhouse of the Broncos, who defeated New England, 26-16, in the AFC title game […]

Defensive Tilt

The opening quarter of the Burroughs High girls’ Pacific League basketball game against host Burbank wasn’t close, but the rest of the contest was. With the score tied in the waning moments, junior center Sierra Brown (seven points and seven rebounds) put in a hoop off a rebound that came after a missed free throw […]

Everything You Need to Know About Football… and Relationships

By Mark Felicetti That’s right. This article contains a recap of the NFL Conference Championship games and a model of successful give-and-take dynamics (for both men and women) that can be extrapolated over an entire relationship. The Denver Broncos hosted the New England Patriots in the AFC match up. It took a while for things […]
