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.

Still, a hearty thanks to all our veterans for your service and sacrifice. I hope the beer is extra cold today. As for […]
DIRTY BOULEVARD – We lost a great one yesterday. I was out and about with the idea that I’d just listen to football and then baseball all day on the radio, but then I had something else to listen to in all the great tributes and then a Spotify immersion to write this to, so […]
LOS ANGELES, CA – I’ve only got a few weeks left to write about baseball, so I’m going to take advantage. I just can’t muster the energy for this year’s NFL season yet, and I may even be starting to see JG Clancy’s Yimology commandment on Fantasy Football. But a tight playoff baseball game still […]
ALBUQUERQUE, NM - For those of you who’ve DVR’d last night’s Breaking Bad finale and have been studiously avoiding your Facebook page for fear of being spoiled, I feel your anxiousness. Unfortunately, I’m compelled to make some tribute to the passing of a great show, so I’m going to fill it with spoilers galore. Fortunately […]
