CARSON, Calif. (Nov. 13, 2016) – The U.S.
Women’s National Team finished strong in 2016
with a 5-0 win vs. Romania in front of 20,336 fans
at StubHub Center. With the win, the WNT com-
pletes 2016 with a 22-0-3 record, marking the third
time the team has gone unbeaten in regulation in a
calendar year in which it has played 10 or more
matches. The USA went 18-0-4 in 2006 and 13-0-3
in 2013. The penalty kick loss to Sweden in the
2016 Olympics officially counts as a tie. The U.S.
dominated possession from start to finish and out-
shot Romania 31-0, but it was Romania who put
the ball into its net first via an own-goal from
Teodora Meluta, who chested a Crystal Dunn cross
into her own goal to give the USA a well-deserved
lead into the 20th minute. Dunn got on the score-
sheet herself in the final seconds of the first half
with a crisp finish between the goalkeeper’s legs
from 10 yards out. Christen Press scored in her
fourth consecutive game after finishing an
excellent pass from Tobin Heath. Press’ tally
marks her 41st career goal in her 80th cap.

L.OS ANGELES, CA (Nov. 2016) | On a rare rainy
day in Los Angeles, the Rams were in control of
their matchup against the Dolphins for three-and-
a-half quarters. With a 10-0 lead, kicker Greg
Zuerlein stepped on the field to attempt a 48-yard
field goal that would put the Rams ahead by 13
with just 6:40 left in the fourth quarter.
While the ball had enough distance, it hit off the
left upright falling on the ground, no good. And
that was the turning point in a game the Rams
would lose 14-10.
“Probably one of the most disappointing losses
I’ve endured over the years, particularly because
of all that went into the game, the opportunity for
Jared to start here at home and all those things,”
head coach Jeff Fisher said, referring to No. 1
overall pick Jared Goff, who made his first start
behind center on Sunday. “And the fact that we
were coming off a win, and knowing that we
were going to play a good football team today.
“To play three-and-a-half quarters of good
football — even though we didn’t get the points —
and then to let things slip away was really
disappointing,” Fisher continued. “But that’s the
National Football League.”

Schea Cotton is the subject of one of the biggest
mysteries in basketball’s history. Described as “the
Lebron before Lebron,” Inglewood-native Cotton
dominated the likes of Kevin Garnett and Paul
Pierce and was one of the most highly touted high
school athletes of a pre-social media era. Yet he
never made it to the NBA. What happened?
NBA players, journalists, coaches and Cotton’s
family recount with an almost pained nostalgia
Cotton’s unmatched prowess as a player and the
out-of-bounds emotions behind his story. First-time
director Eric “Ptah” Herbert delivers a cautionary
tale about the harsh reality of unfulfilled
expectations. –Stephanie Owens

L.OS ANGELES, CA (Nov. 2016) | The Rams
have made a few changes to their roster,
promoting cornerback Michael Jordan and
linebacker Nicholas Grigsby from the practice
Squad. As one of the corresponding roster
moves, Los Angeles has waived cornerback Troy
Hill. “Every situation is different, circumstances
are different,” head coach Jeff Fisher said. “I was
disappointed in his choices, as they related to
Friday night and Saturday morning. I didn’t think
he put the team first. I got information, and we
made the decision.
“Because Troy was truthful with me in our con-
versations the last couple of days, I also said
that I’m not going to rule out a second
opportunity,” Fisher added. “I think people
deserve second chances in life. I think he
learned from it, but I was just disappointed in his
choices.” Also on Tuesday, the Rams placed
linebacker Josh Forrest on injured reserve and
waived cornerback Dwayne Gratz.
“We made another tough decision, and Dwayne
Gratz did a nice job for us, but we've got another
move or two to make as far as the secondary is
concerned,” Fisher said. ….

LOS ANGELES, CA (OCT., 2016) – With all the
shuffling that happened throughout the pack all
weekend long at Red Bull Global Rallycross’
season-ending doubleheader at the Port of Los
Angeles, it seemed like there was a season-
defining (if not at least weekend-defining) move
made in every on-track session. But anyone who
has been following the series from day one knows
that Brian Deegan’s race-winning pass in the
Supercar final on Sunday was not only classic
Deegan, but also perhaps the move of the year,
as he ended a five-year winless drought. After a
fourth-place run on Thursday, Deegan found him-
self mixing it up in the semifinals when an agg-
ressive move trying to get past Tanner Foust saw
both drivers fall in the pack.
South America - Jan. 2017 | The hardships and
exploits of the adventurers, the majesty of the
vast desert spaces of Paraguay, Bolivia and
Argentina, the anecdotes of the daily routine in
the bivouac… thanks to the variety of the supports
and formats, footage will be available for those
who wish to follow the Dakar in detail. The media
will be out in force on all formats, from social
networks to traditional print media, while not
overlooking television coverage to 190 countries.
Here is an overview of the media coverage for
2017… Television: includes extensive coverage.
With a reinforced production staff and supple-
mentary means (HD footage, on-board cameras,
Super Slow motion, etc.), the diversity of footage
made available continues to attract channels to
receive special programmes: In Latin America,
Fox Sports will increase its coverage of the Dakar,
with a total of 9 hours per day (vs 7 hours in
2016). In Paraguay, Paraguay TV will have
special live coverage of the Asunción ceremonial
podium and the opening stage. The arrival of the
official constructor Hero in the motorcycle cate-
gory opens the door to news programmes on 11
Indian channels, where morethan a billion poten-
tial viewers can follow the trials and tribulations of
their two riders in the bike category.

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA (FEB., 2017) – Seba-
stien Buemi has made Formula E history by be-
coming the first driver to win three races in a row.
Victory for the Renault e.dams ace continues the
perfect start to his title defence. It was his ninth win
in the all-electric street racing series, and the 12th
for the team. That means Renault e.dams have now
won half of all the Formula E races that have taken
place. But, in front of 21,000 enthusiastic fans,
Buemi had to work hard for his victory. From his
first-ever Julius Baer pole position, Lucas di Grassi
(ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport) led away at the start,
while Jean-Eric Vergne slotted his TECHEETAH into
Di Grassi was struggling with his car, and in quick
succession he was passed by Vergne and then
Buemi. TECHEETAH uses the same powertrain as
Renault e.dams, but there was nothing Vergne could
do to stop Buemi charging by into the lead. Further
back di Grassi had slipped behind the impressive
NextEV NIO of Oliver Turvey and the second Renault
e.dams of Nico Prost as his struggles intensified.

ST. PETERSBURG, FL (MARCH 2017) – Few reunions
have better after-parties than the one that will be
enjoyed by Sebastien Bourdais and the Dale Coyne

and 10 years since he last raced with Craig

remained in front of the field for all but five of the
subsequent 73 laps to pick up his 36th career win –
breaking a tie with Bobby Unser for sixth all-time.
The victory was all the more celebration-worthy
because it came just a day after Bourdais crashed
in qualifying, which relegated him to the 21st and
