It's opening day at Dodger Stadium today. Patch file photo.

Whoa-- fellas- you do know the Patch fired almost ALL their editors and now have just a few coveringRead More gee- how many do you have to cover now, Penny? When at first it was 1 maybe 2? This is a case of shoot the messenger. Hey Penny, you are welcome to come over to the East Coast anytime, we give our editors more respect. Now- I must return...for I have a tendency to melt in this part of the country. Just for fun sake ---how about them Red Sox??

Snow, We know and the messenger is AOL! And yeah their style is cheap!
Penny Arévalo (Editor) April 6, 2014 at 01:00 pm
Well, thanks for the respect, Snow (I think). BTW, "fired" is not a appropriate word. TheyRead More were layoffs. And we're no longer owned by AOL. We do have great plans to change up how we cover our territory, but it won't involve losing millions of dollars a year. So we're in transition. I do thank all the readership for hanging with us. That's been very appreciated. Stay tuned! :-)

The marathon is a nice tradition. What s not so nice is the damn fool with the bull horn at theRead More finish line. He begins screaming at 8 am and continues until 3 pm. He wakes up everyone in the building with windows facing Ocean Avenue at the California Incline. Same damn thing every year. I wish he would wait until 9 or 10 am, when the runners actually cross the finish line. My kitties are disgusted. Me too.

Like I believe the Rams are seriously considering such a move. Just another rich NFL owner jerkingRead More off the city they're currently calling home. See Raiders, Chargers for California examples.

I certainly don't want them back if they expect all sorts of corporate welfare for building aRead More stadium! And, the thought of them being here is already giving me nightmares of Georgia Frontiere.

The man who died in the Redondo Beach Triathlon this past Sunday, 6-9-13: Michael Giardino. He wasRead More 48. I don't know what it will take to encourage 40-something men not to participate in Triathlons. Being 40-something male, swimming fast in cold water at the start of triathlon races, too often equals heart attack and death; seems on average to be 1 man per triathlon race (sources: newspapers, but not U.S.A. Triathlon who gathers but claims it is their right to keep quiet the official data). Many of these men are in excellent shape, and it is not their first triathlon. But somehow the band plays on. No doubt another 40-something man will die next weekend. His family will be sad, but these races apparently will keep going on. Coming up soon is the 1 year anniversary of my friend, Jason Kirshner's, death (6-24-12 in Ventura). I grew up with him in Rancho Palos Verdes. We were close friends for 30 years. I still miss my dear friend oh so very much ♥. Prayers for the family of Michael Giardino. I am so very sorry.

I lost my husband, a nationally ranked triathlete, while he was on a training ride. Still latchedRead More into his peddles, he hit the ground. Had immediate CPR with no success. He was 50. In tip top shape, he rode his last ride. Yes, he was doing what he loved but I know he would rather be alive to share the success of his daughters & enjoy being Grandpa to his 4 grandchildren. There is a bigger picture! Autopsy proved he had HCM: hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, an athete's kiss of death. Condolences to the Giardino family.

About the post from Ramona Rebeck. To be honest, I feel like it's a bad-timed, misplaced rant. I'mRead More sorry for the loss of your friend Jason. I hope his memory lives on in everyone whom he ever interacted with; as my father's memory does. As for the statement about encouraging 40-something men not to participate in these events; crazy! That's like telling a man to stop living their life at the age of 40. To put it in perspective, it would be like me telling women over 30 years old to stop trying to have children because the risk of having a baby with chromosomal disorders (amongst other complications) increases as a woman grows older. In short, that's just something I don't have the right to tell a woman although science clearly proves it. This article was not the place for you to put your post. I recommend starting a blog if you would like to get your opinion out there. Today is exactly one month since my father passed. There has not been one day, one hour, even one minute that I have not felt pain for his loss. However, every time I feel the pain, I remind myself that he went out on top doing what he loved to do and he lived his life to the fullest every single day leading up to his passing; and a smile returns to my face. Do I miss him? Of course I do. But he is very much alive inside me. His actions in his life influence my every decision and I know he's smiling down on us all from heaven. Appreciate life, love your family and train hard if you're an athlete. Always follow your passion and do what makes you feel great! -Andrew Giardino

Great article. I play golf so I enjoyed the synopsis. What wasn't mentioned is that golf looks easyRead More but is a very difficult game. It is a mind game as well as a physical one. That is why so many love it!
