I am writing about how Mark Scarp’s column “Dodgers’ postgame dip a lack of manners” (Tribune, Sept. 22) was insightful to me.
Last week’s column about the Los Angeles Dodgers taking a dip in the Arizona Diamondbacks swimming pool after beating the local team to win their division elicited some backlash from a reader who thought I should be dealing with weightier subjects.
“Everyday there is a post about some glorious way to make every man woman and child comfortable. And everyday it becomes increasingly clearer that the ultimate goal of most of you is to see the closing of all for profit businesses. The sole purpose of this can only be to funnel all money into the government for redistribution. Much like Stalinist Russia. When the 98% went from middle class and some poor to no middle class and all destitute.”
I don’t usually write about sports, and you can all relax, because I’m not going to today.

The fortunes have the Diamondbacks and Dodgers have changed drastically since the June 11, 2013 brawl in Los Angeles.
Yasiel Puig’s first 60 games as a major leaguer have been very exciting. He’s hitting .370, driven in 27 runs in his first 250 at-bats and the Los Angeles Dodgers have gone from under .500 to a team on pace for 100-plus wins since he arrived in early June.
Full disclosure to start: I had the Los Angeles Dodgers dead and buried in June. Done. Over. Even with the phenomenon that is Yasiel Puig; even with Ian Kennedy poking the big, blue bear with a sharp stick at just the wrong moment with two of the most ill-timed beanballs in baseball history.
Superman had hardly cleared Hollywood airspace before the rumors of the next Los Angeles Lakers superstar acquisitions began. And as always, the dreams are as big as California:
The East Valley has hundreds of athletes who will move on to play college sports, a few might eventually reach the professional ranks. Needless to say, paring down a list of the top players from the 2012-13 school year was no easy task. However, there were five males that stood out above the rest, either for their complete dominance in one sport or their ability to compete at the highest level in different ones.

The Phoenix Suns have a chance to begin their ascension from the ashes this summer.

Jackie Robinson was the ideal class act to break the barrier and become the first black player in Major League Baseball.
More than 1.7 million fans helped the Cactus League set a new attendance record with the 2013 spring training season that ended Saturday in Arizona.
My interface with Hollywood chiefly consists of driving each weekday underneath the Interstate 10 sign downtown saying “Los Angeles” near my exit, thinking that I should just keep going west, to take a long-delayed shot at pitching my screenplay.
Watch out for the construction zone.
A valuable piece of the region’s economic impact puzzle came through a simple conversation between then Tempe Mayor Harry Mitchell, local homebuilder Brad Curtis and a group of businessmen from Chase Bank a number of years ago.
So it appears an NBA mascot shift is in the offing. New Orleans owner Tom Benson, who has been itching to change the name of his team since buying the struggling franchise, wants to rename the ill-titled Hornets – and call his team the New Orleans Pelicans.
Unlike many local sports fans, I spent Halloween night at US Airways Center to catch the regular season debut of the new Suns.
