West Coast Craig reports from Hollywood with an endearingly laid back style. A happily married father of two little boys, WCC has an avocado tree in his yard, plays the hot corner in a "Valley" hardball league and always manages to take cool sports-related mini road-trips, often with his immediate clan. He hails from Oneonta, NY but has been "So very L.A." for twenty years, so his sports teams are the Yankees AND the Dodgers, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the L.A. Lakers and the Colorado Avalanche/Quebec Nordiques. WCC loves bacon-wrapped hotdogs and can touch his heel and his ear... with his hand.

Some of you may remember when I [...]
YOUR LOCAL CINEPLEX -Like the NBA, the summer blockbuster movie season seems to begin earlier and earlier each year, with next weekend seeing it officially open with Iron Man 3, one of a handful of flicks coming in the next few months that have a crooked number following the title. We’ll see Zombies, Super Heroes, [...]
I have a small reporter’s pad on my desk that I’ll sometimes jot random words and ideas down for possible post ideas on here. Sometimes it’s true inspiration, the muses speaking to me and the posts write themselves. I get to bed at a reasonable hour when this happens. Then there’s 98% of the rest [...]
LAS VEGAS, NV – The Yankees have shown a pulse in the two non-Hughes pitched games this weekend, the Mets surged to two games above .500 (while R.A. Dickey got shelled in Toronto…there was no Will Middlebrooks in the National League last year), and the Knicks have seized the momentum in the NBA with a [...]
