Waiting to catch a plane back to New York – a United flight, no less, that would ultimately be delayed a few hours — Jeremy Schaap slouched back a bit in his seat as the noise level rose inside the Main Street El Segundo espresso house Friday morning.
He perhaps unconsciously kept tapping the bottom of his empty paper cup against the table top, not meaning to make an appropriate hollow, echoing sound as he kept going over his thoughts aloud.
“I heard it was coming like everyone and because what’s going on with our shows now, as we’re building it,

The Rams, who didn’t have a first-round pick in this year’s draft, decided to delay their gratification further Friday.
The Rams, scheduled to pick No. 37 overall (the fifth pick of the second round), instead made an on-the-clock trade with Buffalo to move back seven spots.
The Rams also picked up one of Buffalo’s third-round picks (No. 91 overall) and sent their fifth-round pick (No. 149 overall) to the Bills.Original Article: http://www.ocregister.com/2017/04/28/nfl-draft-rams-trade-down-with-second-round-pick/
PLAYA VISTA – At the risk of morphing into a Southern California cliché, Doc Rivers took a break from studying film on the off-day following Tuesday’s Game 5 loss to the Utah Jazz and, with perhaps just 48 minutes remaining in his team’s season, went for a long walk on the beach.
Well, maybe not long.
“I can’t go for anything long,” Rivers joked, a moment of levity amid a tense first-round series, “because I’m too fat and too old and too out of shape. My walks are 10 steps and then I turn around and then I go sit down
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Former USA Swimming executive director Chuck Wielgus, who led a federation that brought home 156 Olympic medals during his 20 years at the helm, has died. He was 67.
USA Swimming says Wielgus died Sunday in Colorado Springs of complications from colon cancer. The cancer was first diagnosed in 2006 and Wielgus underwent regular chemotherapy while leading USA Swimming to record growth before retiring in August.
He was well-known in Indianapolis for overseeing numerous national and world-class meets at IUPUI’s natatorium.
Wielgus was the longest-tenured leader among U.S. Olympic organizations. The 156 medals represent about one-third of America’s
Here is a short bio of new Kings coach John Stevens:
ANAHEIM — Garrett Richards is having trouble finding the bright side of the fact that, according the tests, there’s still nothing wrong with his elbow.
That’s because the irritated nerve that’s causing weakness in his bicep doesn’t seem to making progress, so he’s now on the 60-day disabled list, out until at least early June.
“There’s a lot of positives working in my favor,” Richards said. “It’s hard to look at the positive when you have so much negative going on. … It (stinks). You feel so good coming into the season and have a good spring and everything is back
PHOENIX – Sergio Romo always knew the odds were against San Francisco being his only baseball home.
“It’s a small percentage (of players), from what I know, that get drafted by an organization and play your whole minor-league career, your whole big-league career with the same organization – let alone being a reliever,” Romo said Sunday. “It just doesn’t happen. I wanted to be a part of that small percentage. I thought it might happen.”
That dream ended last winter when the Giants let him know he was not in their plans for 2017. Drafted by the Giants in 2005, Romo
