In addition to what posted at the DailyNews.com/sports website, we have these worth getting out there heading into the weekend:
= As long as you’re up for the Rams-Giants game Sunday morning, here’s the ESPN blurb on what’s coming up for “Outside The Lines” (6 a.m., ESPN with repeats throughout the day):
(The show) will focus on the last three years, the worst in Los Angeles Lakers history, with last season’s 17 wins an all-time low. The once-dominant franchise of late owner Jerry Buss, who won 10 NBA titles, now embarks on the post-Kobe Bryant era with its fourth head coach since Phil Jackson stepped away in 2011. Reporter Steve Delsohn’s examination of the decline of the Lakers and the turmoil at the top includes an in-depth interview with team president Jeanie Buss.
ESPN will have the interview posted on its site Thursday.
== An update on Vin Scully’s 2017 scheduled appearances in the Distinguished Speaker Series: The Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center (appearing March 22) is sold out, the Pasadena Ambassador Auditorium (March 20) has less than 15 seats left, the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza (March 21) has less than 100 left and Beverly Hills Saban Theatre (March 19) stop has plenty to go.
The way ticket sales works: One must buy the whole series per site — they include, in this round, appearances that include Steve Martin, Diana Nyad and astronaut Scott Kelly. Some who buy the series and can’t attend all six events will post tickets for sale on the site. If you’re only interest is in the Scully appearances, check the site for ticket consignment — either resales, or request to buy just one event. Entire series tickets range from $660 to $340.
