Say what you will about professional sports teams in L.A., we attract players at the top of their game. This week’s Overheard in L.A. round-up includes overheard conversation on post-structuralism, upholstered furniture and movie plots.

Don’t forget, our Overheard in L.A. feature relies on you to send us the strange conversations you overhear in this city. Send them our way at (In the e-mail, put "overheard" in the subject and tell us who said it, where they said it and any amusing context.)
