    It was determined that Ankrum used profanity during ESPN’s national broadcast of Southern California’s 12-8 victory over Hawaii Hilo LL on Thursday night, ther

    California Republicans walked into their weekend convention facing a persistent question: What direction should they take to stop the ongoing decline of their power in the state? Three chaotic days later, there was little resolution. Concern about the party's future, decisions being made by its leaders and how inclusive the state GOP truly is - topics typically only whispered about at party gatherings - were openly discussed in Anaheim this weekend, spurred by a series of contentious events at t

  • Editor’s Pick: House of Sillage No. 003

    HoS No.003 is the latest men’s cologne from Newport Beach-based House of Sillage, which describes the new fragrance as carrying “distinct notes of oceanic sage and volcanic rock accord, blended with scents of ambergris and Akigala wood.” I don’t know about all that, but it certainly does carry the scent of the sea, and where most colognes seem to fade away by the end of a long day, HoS No. 003 lingers. In a good way.

  • Melvin Gordon leaves Anthony Lynn wanting on Chargers’ goal-line runs

    CARSON — Melvin Gordon ran the ball from the 1-yard line. And then he ran it again. And again. And again.
    He never got over the goal line, squandering a short field following the Chargers’ fumble recovery at Denver’s 45-yard line. They beat the Broncos anyway, 21-0, but memory of that sequence still left Coach Anthony Lynn fuming on Sunday.
    “That was absolutely terrible,” Lynn said. “Anytime we have the ball on the 1-yard line and I give it to my back four tim

  • Corey Seager looks ready for World Series after a full workout at Dodger Stadium

    LOS ANGELES –  Corey Seager’s return looked a bit more real Sunday, two days before Game 1 of the World Series.
    The 23-year-old shortstop took batting practice, fielded ground balls and threw to first base at Dodger Stadium during a team workout. Then, for the first time since he injured his back Oct. 9, Seager faced live pitching from teammates Hyun-Jin Ryu and Brandon McCarthy in a simulated game.
    “I feel great,” he said. “There’s no limitations.”

    LOS ANGELES – Kentavious Caldwell-Pope needed exactly 25 seconds against the New Orleans Pelicans to demonstrate why the Lakers signed him to an $18 million contract last summer.
    In his regular season debut in L.A., Caldwell-Pope hit a 3-pointer as he was pushed out of bounds by Jrue Holiday with 1:26 left in the second quarter.
    After converting the four-point play, he intercepted a pass from DeMarcus Cousins – his second steal of the first half – then pushed the ball up the fl
  • After playoff elimination, USC points toward other remaining goals

    A season has lost some of its luster.
    When USC suffered a humbling 49-14 defeat at Notre Dame on Saturday, it also saw its playoff hopes wither.
    Effectively, it was eliminated from contention.
    Since the College Football Playoff format was introduced in 2014, no team has been selected as one of the four participants with more than one loss. The Trojans, who were expected to challenge for a national championship in the preseason, now sit 6-2 overall, left to make the most of a final stretch of the

  • Alexander: Chargers defense helps quiet the opposing fans

    CARSON — Defense wins games on the road, right?
    OK, that was a little bit of snark. But on a day when the Chargers played what almost certainly felt like their seventh of 16 road games, before a preponderance of Broncos’ orange in StubHub Center, their defense served notice that they aren’t going quietly.
    The 21-0 clean sheet, if we can use a term more appropriate to the other sport played in this stadium, was the first laid on the Broncos since Nov. 22, 1992. That, too, took p

    The Clippers’ next-man-up philosophy will be put to the test only two games into the regular season, just as it was during an injury-plagued preseason. The Clippers said Sunday that guard Milos Teodosic would be sidelined indefinitely by a plantar fascia injury in his left foot.
    Teodosic was injured late in the second quarter of the Clippers’ 42-point victory Saturday over the Phoenix Suns at Staples Center. He stepped on the foot of Suns guard Devin Booker and tumbled to the court.

    “I just have trouble accepting that Houston is in the American League,” said Claire, the Dodgers’ general manager in 1988.
    Nostalgists were pumped for a Dodgers-Yankees series. But this is fine. The Dodgers and Astros were opposites in the 80s who didn’t attract. Their conflict couldn’t be resolved in a World Series until Houston shifted to the AL in 2013.

    Jaelan Phillips didn’t see anyone between him and Oregon quarterback Braxton Burmeister. The UCLA freshman defensive end knew what he had to do.
    Phillips, unblocked off the edge, laid a crushing hit to Burmeister’s blind side and flatted the freshman quarterback like a tackling dummy for a 6-yard sack.
    Like Phillips, who missed more than a month with an ankle injury, sacks were a rare sight for the Bruins. They went five weeks without one until recording four against Oregon in a 31-1

    WASHINGTON, D.C.  — President Donald Trump warned House Republicans on Sunday that 2018 would be a political failure for the GOP and disappointment for the nation if they fail on tax overhaul.
    A GOP aide familiar with the conversation said Trump told the lawmakers again and again that the party would have a steep price to pay in next year’s midterm elections if they failed to pass his plan. It would slash the corporate tax rate to 20 percent and doub
