It’s All Opinions Day

They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine:

Before talk of a new NFL stadium in downtown L.A. gets too far along, I have one simple question: Where would everybody park? . . .

Anyone who’s been to Lakers games knows it is tough enough to park with crowds of 17,000 at Staples. Where would 70,000 find parking spaces? . . .

Athlon Pro Basketball magazine named its all-time starting lineups for all NBA teams, and it is the first one to get the Lakers right. Their lineup: Magic Johnson and Kobe Bryant, Jerry West and Elgin Baylor and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. That, folks, is nailing it . . .

For USC to beat Arizona at Tucson, Robert Woods, the dazzling freshman receiver, has to be recovered from a sore back and ready to play. Matt Barkley looked lost without him in the second half against Arizona State . . .

Nickname I wish I’d thought of for Zenyatta: Shebiscuit. Heard it on a cable TV show . . .

Firing Wade Phillips saved everybody connected with the Cowboys from suffering, including Phillips. But unless Tony Romo makes a miraculous recovery, Dallas still won’t win many more games this season . . .

Phone conversation you have to think occurred sometime this week: “Hello, Carl, Carl Crawford? Hey, this is Tony Reagins with the Angels. So how’s everything going?” . . .

The no-name free agent the Angels should also be calling about is Toronto’s Scott Downs, a killer lefty reliever . . .

UCLA basketball coach Ben Howland is switching to an up-tempo offense, huh? That’s like Phil Jackson suddenly switching to stand-up comedy . . .

I’d bet a lot of money Pete Carroll talks to Matt Leinart, currently an innocuous back up in Houston, about joining the Seahawks next season . . .

You’re a better football fan than I am if you can name where Peyton Hillis, Cleveland’s new running star, went to college . . .

Tell me what the following numbers have in common: 72, 48, 69, 42, 52, 43, 60, 53, 53. Give up? Those are the remarkable point totals No. 1 Oregon has put up on the way to 9-0 . . .

Makes it even more impressive that, a year ago, Boise State, the team everybody wants to overlook, held the Ducks to 8 points . . .

The Browns’ Colt McCoy is just the latest non-prototype quarterback to fool NFL scouts. At 6-1 without a “big arm”, he lasted until the draft’s third round, even though he was college football’s all-time winningest quarterback at Texas . . .

Here’s my question: Did anyone watch him play? McCoy was one of the most accurate passers I’ve ever seen in college . . .

Terrell Owens never has been a favorite of mine, but I’ll say this for him: The guy can still play . . .

Just like everyone figured. The new key player in the Chargers’ offense is Seyi Ajirotutu. Seriously . . .

Somebody tell me what Jon Miller and Joe Morgan did wrong on ESPN’s Sunday night baseball . . .

NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon reportedly are swapping pit crews. Isn’t that kind of like the Jets and Giants swapping backfield? . . .

  1. Once again you have put into great words what everyone else has been thinking. I thank you for making my day. I have never understood why the coach is always the one who gets fired since it is the players who aren’t doing well. They should also fire Tony Romo. That goes for all of the pro sports.

  2. USC is probably in tough against Arizona. Agree that the all-time Lakers lineup is accurate, but there are three guards. Who would be the starting forward opposite Elgin?
