FROM THIS EPISODE

New FAA rules might require you to register your drone before you fly it, and there are several regulations here in California about where these airborne overlords can go. But Sacramento and the FAA aren't exactly on the same page. Guest host Barbara Bogaev tries to make sense of the territorial dispute in the skies.

Also on the program, is the NFL one step closer to bringing a team -- or teams -- to Los Angeles next year?

Vincent Bonsignore is a sports columnist for the Los Angeles Daily News.
