LAst Night's Action: Lakers Youth Pound Sick Clippers
LA Lakers defeat LA Clippers 108-97. Andrew Bynum had a career game against the Clippers scoring 42 points with 15 rebounds. 42 points! That's the most points in a game that any Laker has scored this season. But let's not forget about Kobe Bryant who had a triple-double with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists. It seemed like his gnarled shooting hand gave him few problems. The Clippers though showed moxie led by Deandre Jordan's 23 points. If he can keep it up the Clippers will be fantastic over the long haul.
LA Kings defeat Colorado Avalanche 6-5. You would think that having a 6-2 lead in the second period would mean that the win is pretty much secured. But like a broken record, the Kings just have difficulties closing out games. Fortunately in this game they had built too big of a lead for this Avalanche team to pull out the win.
NY Islanders defeat Anaheim Ducks 2-1. The Ducks outshot the Islanders 40-14. They committed only one penalty. But they gave up two goals in the first period and couldn't catch up. Uy.
After one day of the changes at AM 570 KLAC, I must say it's a bust. With the "Loose Cannons" show being retooled with Steve Hartman and Chris Myers while Vic "The Brick" Jacobs relegated to updates (which didn't happen Wednesday), the ensuing show was a mess. With Myers' stiff personality and Hartman's need to get his voice heard at all times, the show came falling down with a loud anvil-like thud. The only segment that was listenable was their interview with former Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals head coach Dennis "They Were Who We Thought They Were" Green, and unfortunately that was because of the sheer personality of Green. Meanwhile the "Petros and Money Show" remained unchanged and still as entertaining as it ever was.
I'll give the new "Hartman and Myers" show a chance before I totally give up on it. But it's a really tough pill to swallow that the only purely local show that's left (and worth listening to) is "Mason and Ireland" on AM 710 KSPN.

- When you are taught a sport, one of the first rules you learn is, "Keep your eye on the ball." Well this ball boy at the Australian Open forgot the next rule (as did Stuart Scott apparently) which is, "Make sure the ball doesn't hit you in the eye socket." Well the ball boy got the ugly end of a Juan Martin del Potro error.
