An NFL stadium at Chavez Ravine? You can bet the new owners of the Dodgers will at least kick the tires on that idea. In fact, a league insider said the buyers had preliminary discussions with the NFL while doing their due diligence on the investment. Peter O'Malley did more than that in the late 1990s. He was well down the road on a proposal to build a football stadium next to Dodger Stadium when the city let the air out of his balloon by supporting the Coliseum, which it partly owned.

If you?re anything like me, you avoid with great effort having to commute to ?the other side of the hill.? So, when this year?s Los Angeles Marathon route cut a Mason-Dixon Line from downtown to the Santa Monica Pier, only one thing could make me want to get in my car and venture into that warzone on race day. My wife. Though her already healthy limits of personal fortitude are tested daily by yours truly and proven sound, she?s always looking for new ways to push herself. So she decided she had nothing better to do Sunday than run 26.2 miles with 26,000 other people just because.

Dear Frank, It pains me to write this. Last year I wrote to you, pleading with you to give us back our Los Angeles Dodgers and show yourself out of town. On behalf of all Angelenos who bleed Dodger blue, I implored you to do what you knew in your money-loving, American Express Black Card, bankrupt heart was best, and make a few hundred million dollars for yourself and your ex-wife by selling our team. And this week, you did it.* So here's the hard part. (deep breath)

Batter up! Spring training is over. The outfield is green. And Major League Baseball has brought back the boys of summer for another exciting season. While everyone's trying to figure out how to get out of the stadium parking lot, why not spend your time improving your swing and catching a great meal? Central Park Pizza may be hidden in the Batcade, but the food is definitely out of the park. On my first visit to Central Park Pizza, I took a group of friends more interested in taking their cuts in the batting cages than eating from what they assumed would be typical concession-stand fare.

A bout a year ago, I wrote in this space about the wonders and occasional trials of cycling to work. I'm proud to say I'm still doing it, more frequently now that the air is warm and the sun sticks around later. The six miles between my home in Burbank and the Glendale News-Press world headquarters is flat and downright pleasant. The exercise puts me in a better mood once I get to work — something my reporters like — and allows me to blow off steam before getting home — something my wife loves.

As we approach the home stretch of the most contentious issue ever faced by the citizens of Glendale, I initially thought of naming certain individuals whom I felt had continuously done irreparable harm with their incessant rancor as to why the Caruso development was not in the best interest of the city. Instead, I decided to take a different approach, one which I believe has never been addressed during these difficult, divisive times. I recently purchased the book, "Symphony: Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall."

Freddy Sanchez remembers where he was when he watched Kirk Gibson's home run in the 1988 World Series. He reminisces about the days when his dad, Fred, would take him to Dodger games, sit in the pavilion and watch their heroes play. Those were the memories he savored as a kid. Now a mature 28-year-old, Sanchez couldn't help but have the same giddy emotions when he returned to Dodger Stadium as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates. "I've played at Yankee Stadium, I've played at Fenway Park and I've played at Wrigley Field," said Sanchez, a 1996 Burbank High graduate who attended Glendale Community College in 1997-98.
