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.

SPRING TRAINING TOWN, USA – Baseball season is finally upon us; Spring Training is in full swing, and it’s time to earnestly look ahead to the season. So, in honor of our esteemed former colleague Grote2DMax, who used to write something along these lines each year, I thought I’d pick up the mantle and take […]
HOLLYWOOD, CA – Here I thought I was getting a rare Monday holiday off, but my colleague DJ Eberle is busy skiing in minus 11 degree temps in Vermont… because it’s fun! So, here goes another President’s Day post, a spot I’ve used a few times now to celebrate the sports achievements of our illustrius […]
HOLLYWOOD, CA – It’s rare when the Young -N- Fun team wins the Super Bowl; the ‘69 Jets, the ‘74 Steelers, the ‘81 Niners, the ‘85 Bears (though they did have the grand old Sweetness) and maybe that ‘01 Patriot team (though “fun” isn’t quite right). I’m sure I’m forgetting a couple, and while the Panthers were […]
