After taking a beating from NFL owners, they’re committed to play here in 2016, but also have reached a deal to possibly join the Rams in Inglewood in 2017 — if they cannot get something done in San Diego, more than likely with the downtown citizen’s initiative (their preference).

Was this Scotland or Torrey Pines? – San Diego Union-Tribune
A witches brew of weather – to borrow from Shakespeare – turned a golf endeavor into “double, double, toil and trouble” Sunday at a PGA event.

NHL officials said after the game that John Scott had not been listed on the MVP ballot that fans voted on electronically, but they chose him as a write-in candidate.
