Winger Bobby Ryan of the Ducks and the U.S. Olympic team is blogging for The Times during the Games. Here's his post on the U.S. team's 5-3 upset of Canada on Sunday: Hi again, everyone: That was a great game to be part of. To beat Canada in their own barn in front of their own fans was pretty special. It was a pretty quiet building at the end, it was almost eerie. We enjoyed it in the locker room afterward. It's a huge confidence boost for us. As far as the game, I thought we were outplayed for quite a while.

Re "Kennedy kinship has a double edge for Bobby Shriver," April 16 and "Shriver decries spending limits," April 14 It takes just one candidate with a lot of personal wealth to rid an election of any hope for an open and truly democratic race. This pertains to Bobby Shriver of the Kennedy family, who has opted out of the $1.4-million spending limit in the race for the 3rd District seat on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. The race for L.A. County supervisor is one of the remaining major contests that has a voluntary restriction on spending that candidates respect.
One piece of unsolicited mail, several credit-card billings, a few pleasant beach days and several uncomfortable hours at sea have arisen so far in my 15-month relationship with the vacation certificate industry. But like many troubled relationships, ours ultimately comes down to a few waves of anxiety and a couple of decisive moments. The most crucial of those moments cropped up on a blustery January afternoon here on Florida's southeast coast.

Shriver is seeking to replace Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky on the five-member Board of Supervisors. "The job of Los Angeles County supervisor is a challenging and important one," Riordan said in a prepared statement.

If there ever was a child I would take, no questions asked, it would be Bobby. If someone knocked on my door and asked, "Would you give Bobby a home?" I wouldn't hesitate to say, "Yes, when can I have him?" That's a fantasy; it's not going to happen. I haven't seen Bobby for two years. He was a neighbor kid in a San Diego apartment complex we both left two years ago, me for Seattle and him for North Carolina. But I still think about him. I think about him because he was an abused child.

There's a certain shaggy, 1970s-era charm to "Loosies," a crime-with-a-side-of-romance (or perhaps it's the other way around) trifle written by and starring Peter Facinelli (the "Twilight" pictures, TV's "Nurse Jackie") as an essentially decent Manhattan pickpocket "working" to pay off his late father's enormous debt. This nicely acted, atmospheric gambol, directed with a light, occasionally random touch by Michael Corrente ("Outside Providence," "Brooklyn Rules") puts Facinelli's sexy, charismatic Bobby at the center of a handful of raggedy story strands that engage even if they never fully coalesce.

I went to the Ambassador Hotel 30 years ago to make a victory-party picture of Sen. Robert Kennedy as he won the California presidential primary. I was a Times reporter, but on that evening I went on my own time, despite an upset stomach from too many tacos and onion rings, toting my personal camera. To me, Bobby represented what was left of the Camelot era of American politics, and I wanted him to win. I wanted a picture of him for my wall--something that said a new era was aborning.

Kennedy memorabilia is scattered around Bobby Shriver's campaign headquarters. On one wall hangs a photo of a giant Robert F. Kennedy mural, on another the signed text of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's 1980 speech to the Democratic National Convention: "To Bobby. Christmas. Love, Uncle Ted. " But the former Santa Monica mayor is tired of news stories tagging him as the nephew of President John F. Kennedy. He'd rather be known for getting AIDS medicine to Africa, or producing Christmas albums to raise money for the Special Olympics.

Los Angeles County supervisorial candidate Bobby Shriver has rejected voluntary campaign spending limits and indicated he'll use at least $300,000 of his own money to seek the seat being vacated by board member Zev Yaroslavsky. Shriver, a businessman and member of the Kennedy family, declared his intentions in paperwork filed with the county elections office. Under the county's campaign finance law, candidates can accept up to $1,500 per contributor if they agree not to spend more than $1.4 million for the primary race.

The beginning of the end for Chivas USA could have gone unnoticed. Even as the team prepared to begin the final season of its 10-year history, following Major League Soccer's announcement last month that it had bought the club and would sell it to a new owner who would change the name, few fans could be spotted walking the streets around StubHub Center an hour before the game. Unlike Saturday night, when the Galaxy hosted its season opener at the venue in front of more than 25,000 fans, the streets around the stadium in Carson on Sunday were empty for Chivas USA's season opener against the Chicago Fire.

The field of contenders became clearer Friday for Los Angeles County government's June election, the first in decades that will have no incumbent on the ballot, as a period for candidates to file papers closed. Term limits are forcing out two county supervisors, and the sheriff and the assessor chose not to seek reelection amid corruption scandals involving their agencies. Topping the list of contenders seeking to replace Zev Yaroslavsky as a western county representative on the Board of Supervisors are former state lawmaker Sheila Kuehl and Bobby Shriver, a former Santa Monica mayor and a member of the Kennedy political dynasty.

Los Angeles County supervisorial candidate Sheila Kuehl is taking aim at rival Bobby Shriver's absences on the Santa Monica City Council, saying the former local elected official should have made it to more meetings instead of "spending so much time in Hyannis Port. " Shriver, who last week announced his candidacy for the west county seat being vacated by longtime Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, missed nearly one out of five meetings during his eight years on the council, a Times review found.

Bob Sharpnack is a baseball cliche come to life. The Fountain Valley High School senior is the embodiment of baseball's bromides--hustle, desire and commitment. And, he loves it. He loves The Game. Which is convenient, because there is something about the rangy pitcher that baseball has a crush on. The game has liked Sharpnack since he was a freshman and won all 10 games he started. Baseball has continued to dote on him, helping him to a 10-2 record and 1.

Rachel and David in "The Biggest Loser" finale? Saw that one coming. But Bobby?!?! Second chances, indeed. Rachel was all but guaranteed to win the first-ever triathlon staged by the weight-loss reality show, given her strong swimming background. And David is just flat out a stronger and faster competitor than the rest of the field -- and still has a good bit of weight to lose. PHOTOS: Celebrities by The Times Bobby, however, had been eliminated once from the show, and managed to fight his way back in. At times, he'd been called out for not working very hard in the gym. And he came in dead last in the five-person triathlon.

Bobby Shriver invoked his Kennedy family heritage on Tuesday as he launched his campaign for Los Angeles County supervisor, using his place in the political dynasty to try to gain an edge even while casting himself as an outsider. The former mayor of Santa Monica told a cluster of reporters at Will Rogers State Beach that he was running because he wanted to fix things and “shake things up” in a county that faces major challenges with homelessness, traffic, the environment and a broken foster care system.
