Los Angeles is supposed to be a great sports town. The Dodgers, Lakers and Clippers are going strong, but USC and Michigan--the teams in next month's Rose Bowl game--are disappointed, and the National Football League is playing games with local officials. Plus, the State Supreme Court may throw out the ban on gay marriage; and, will LA County ban trans fats in restaurants?
FROM THIS EPISODE
This year's Rose Bowl decided the championship of college football. In next month's game, USC and Michigan will be also-rans--and the NFL has been gone for 12 years. The Pac 10 will again play the Big 10 again next month at the Rose Bowl, but the 93-year tradition is turning into just another college game. Meantime, another, less celebrated, tradition was established 12 years ago. That's when the pro-football Rams left Anaheim and the Raiders departed the LA Coliseum. Ever since, the National Football League has played hard-to-get with a series of public officials.
