(As a Los Angeleno, I can tell you it’s all true.)
Los Angeles Clippers play-by-play announcer Ralph Lawler fell victim to the traffic on Wednesday night, missing a rare Clippers victory as a result.
A series of fatal accidents on Interstate 10 made the freeway a standstill, making it impossible for Lawler to make it to Staples Center in time.
In case you’re wondering why Lawler couldn’t take the streets to work – he lives in La Quinta, Calif., 135 miles east of Staples Center.
You have to really love the Clippers to commute two hours each way for work.
