I’d like to know where Bob Costas gets his facts.
The Angels took game 5 of the ALCS against the Yankees last night, but the Yanks still have the advantage in the series, leading 3-2. The Angels took an early lead in the bottom of the 1st inning, scoring 4 runs. There was no other runs scored until the top of the 7th, when New York had an incredible 6-run rally. But in the bottom of the 7th, L.A. scored 3 more runs, and lead the Yanks by a run going into the 8th. Then with two outs in the bottom of the 9th, Fuentes intentionally walked A-Rod, walked Matsui, then hit Robinson Cano to load the bases. Nick Swisher came up to bat, but after a long at-bat he flied out to short, and the ALCS is going back to the Bronx for game 6 on Saturday.
Developer Majestic Realty Co. will build a 75,000-seat NFL-style stadium in the City of Industry, about 15 miles east of Los Angeles, in hopes of luring an already existing team to move to the largest city in the U.S. without an NFL team. The company is considering 7 teams, including the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders, and San Diego Chargers.
In signing the “environmental exemption” bill, Governor Schwarzenegger has helped to generate 18,000 jobs and more than $762 million in economic output. However, he has also given Majestic Realty Co. carte blanche to do what they like to the property they plan to build on, which raises much concern among environmental activist groups in southern California. It sounds to me like Arnie is desperate to start chipping away at the massive debt he has accrued for the state of California during his reign.
