The Crescenta Sports Assn. Shetland Baseball team just completed a strong season, going 7-1 and just barely missing a shot for the finals in the Pony Baseball Shetland World Series. The 5- and 6-year-olds -- which were coached by Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball Coach Jim Smiley, along with assistants Mike Herbert, Jim Somers and Dave Klein -- were dubbed as the "Pirates of the Crescenta" by their loyal faithful. The Pirates, which were all-star players made up from the 16-team CSA Shetland Division, went 5-0 in the regional tournament by defeating teams from Monrovia, Rosemead, Charter Oak, Baldwin Park and West Covina.

Marla Martin is a belly dance instructor/performer living in La Crescenta. Aaaargh!! The pirates sneer, swagger and actually say "Aaaargh," repeatedly! Colorful, funny, big, loud and entertaining, "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" (the movie) is a wonderful match for "Pirates of the Caribbean" (the Disneyland ride). If you just can't get enough of "Avast, Ye Matey!," plank-walking, swordplay, golden treasure, captured maidens and "Fire off the starboard bow, Cap'n!

Two 6-foot rain gutters set on sawhorses awaited the boys? boats. Once the race started, the boats couldn?t be touched, but instead the sails were eagerly blown upon to power their movement along the raingutters.

The Orange Coast College football team did not improve to 3-0 for the first time since 1991, nor did it show many signs of solving its quarterback quandary or offensive doldrums Saturday. The Pirates, however, did find ways to keep scoring points despite their lack of offensive production against Mission Conference host Palomar. The Comets (3-0 and ranked No. 23 in the nation by J.C. Grid-Wire) had their offensive struggles as well, but got three touchdown passes and two interception returns for touchdowns to earn a 40-32 victory before 500 at Escondido High.

After road trips to Santa Barbara, San Diego County and Pasadena for three of its first four games, the Orange Coast College football team is home against Riverside today at 5 p.m. "With the places we've been, it sounds like we've been on vacation," OCC Coach Mike Taylor said. But with a 3-1 record, the program's best start in 13 seasons, the Pirates, ranked No. 10 in the Southern California coaches' poll, have been anything but hospitable visitors.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? A late push to erase a three-touchdown deficit gave the home crowd hope and rallied the Vaqueros sideline Saturday night at Sartoris Field. But the quick 14 points the Glendale Community College football team hung on Orange Coast College in a period of just over two minutes late in the fourth quarter wasn?t enough to avert a 31-24 loss to the Pirates. With 2:16 left in the fourth quarter, the Vaqueros were an onside-kick recovery away from having a chance to completely erase what had looked like a comfortable margin for a relaxed Orange Coast just minutes earlier.

GLENDALE - Thanks to a balanced attack that featured four scorers in double figures, the Glendale Community College men's basketball team held firm to its own tournament trophy as the Vaqueros defeated visiting Orange Coast College, 91-72, in Saturday afternoon's Glendale College Vaquero Classic final. “This was our tournament, so we had to defend our home court and the championship,” said Vaqueros 6-foot-6 wingman Emmett Duvall, who was named to the all-tournament team after tallying 15 points and 15 rebounds.

Tom Hanks and director Paul Greenglass are an odd couple for the new “Captain Phillips.” Hanks is of course best known for playing the Guy You Immediately Like in slick Hollywood films. Greenglass' signature style - in movies like “Bourne” 2 and 3, “United 93” and “Bloody Sunday” - includes a lot of fast-moving handheld camerawork and a gritty feel. Yes, the “Bourne” movies are big Hollywood productions, but they do their best to break away from the James Bond tradition.

GLENDALE - After trailing all game, the Glendale Angelenos brought the tying run to the plate in both of the final two innings. Despite out hitting their opposition, the Angelenos never could find the one big hit they needed to overcome their defensive mistakes in a 5-3 California Collegiate Summer League loss to the Ventura Pirates at Stengel Field Friday night. In all, Glendale posted nine hits to Ventura's six but was hampered by six errors, including two in the first inning that gave the Pirates an immediate 3-0 advantage.

They each got off to a good start, as Rodriguez struck out seven and Sheely hit a solo home run and scored a pair of runs Friday night to spark the host Angelenos to a 6-2 division victory against the Ventura Pirates at Stengel Field.

Following weak box office performances for re-releases of "Monsters, Inc.," "Finding Nemo" and "Beauty and the Beast" in 3-D, Walt Disney Studios has canceled plans for   a 3-D "The Little Mermaid" in June. The underwater animated hit from 1989 was the fourth and final 3-D re-release for which Disney announced plans in late 2011 after "The Lion King" proved a surprise hit in the format, grossing nearly $100 million in the U.S. and Canada. But "The Lion King" turned out to be an anomaly, as the three follow-ups grossed far less.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - There are certain amenities every home needs.

For his lights-out play with the Triple-A Indianapolis Indians this season, Doug Slaten was rewarded by the Pittsburgh Pirates with a call-up back to Major League Baseball on Monday. On Tuesday, the former Glendale Community College player appeared to justify the move with a spotless inning of relief against the Cincinnati Reds in his season debut. The Pirates would lose the game, 8-1, but perhaps saw a glimpse of the steady veteran play they were looking for when they promoted Slaten to join Tony Watson as the team's only left-handers out of the bullpen.

VENTURA - A melange of errors joined by timely hitting and solid pitching proved enough to propel the Glendale Community College softball team in the first game of Saturday afternoon's California Community College Athletic Assn. Southern California Regional at Ventura College. The visiting 10th-seeded Vaqueros took advantage of five errors from the No. 7 Pirates in scoring a 6-2 victory to go up, 1-0, in the best-of-three-game series. The second game of the series is set for this morning at 11 at Oxnard College, with an if-necessary deciding third game starting half an hour later.
