Clippers Announcer Misses Game Due To Traffic

I’m sure you’ve heard stories about how bad traffic is in Southern California.

(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.

Don Larsen to Appear on MLB Network Following Roy Halladay No-No

Yesterday Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay became only the second man in Major League Baseball history to throw a no-hitter in the postseason. Today, MLB Network will have the other man: Former Yankees pitcher Don Larsen, who pitched a perfect game in game five of the 1956 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Larsen will appear just after noon to talk about Halladay’s feat with MLB Network’s Greg Amsinger, Al Leiter, Barry Larkin and John Hart.

Tonight, MLB Net will air an interview with Halladay, conducted by Mitch Williams.
