Andy Roeser, an executive vice president with the Clippers, couldn't stop gushing. "We found the perfect place," Roeser said in describing the new training facility and business offices the team plans to build in the Playa Vista development. Roeser and Playa Vista President Steve Soboroff were at Staples Center on Thursday to announce that the Clippers had purchased the two acres of land on which to build a 35,000-square-foot training center.

Nearly four years ago, in the days that followed the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the mayor of Rome, Walter Veltroni, made a dramatic suggestion: Give the 2012 Summer Olympic Games to New York City. "If New York is a candidate, I think all other cities should all step back to allow New York to host the 2012 Games," he said. "If the Games go to New York, it means the athletes, the spectators, the whole world -- we can all be together. This will show that the terrorists are defeated."

A proposed $2-billion Manhattan stadium that is seen as vital to New York's effort to land the 2012 Olympics survived a critical legal challenge Thursday, just days before the International Olympic Committee is to review the city's bid. State Justice Herman Cahn dismissed a lawsuit alleging illegalities in the purchase of the land for the stadium, which would be built over rail yards along the Hudson River on the city's West Side.

Fullerton isn't the first place one thinks of as a great baseball town. But Ed Hart says it is. And not just because of Cal State Fullerton's NCAA Division I championship last year, though that's part of it.

The six Little League diamonds in Huntington Beach are about as nice as they come, thanks in part to a $200,000 donation five years ago from Major League Baseball and a children's foundation operated by retired slugger Mark McGwire, whose son played at the fields. There's the electronic scoreboard, the new bleachers, the resurfaced infields and the enclosed, brick dugouts. But now, baseball boosters are fighting to save the fields from bulldozers.

A year ago, 12 million T-shirts in boxes were stacked to the rafters of a massive warehouse near Disneyland. But somewhere in the middle of all that cotton, Brad Kelly and his two partners envisioned hundreds of youths spiking volleyballs, shooting jump shots and heading soccer balls.

On the corner of Jefferson and Figueroa, earthmovers have turned concrete to dirt, razing all but one tricky corner in preparing the foundation for USC's new basketball arena. On Monday, Mike Garrett did the rest. It was loud, it was clunky, it was smoky, but it was time. The firing of Henry Bibby was as much about a hole as a hoop, as much about a shovel as an ax.

A group attempting to block a $75-million athletic and arts complex at Junipero Serra High School failed to gather enough signatures to put the issue on the ballot, clearing the way for construction to begin as early as next week. The Orange County registrar of voters' announcement Wednesday that two petitions failed to meet the threshold of 1,752 signatures ends a prolonged feud over a vacant 29-acre plot on the north side of town.
