What do you get when you combine Google Glass, “selfies” and sex? Yep, a new app called Sex With Glass. Oh, Lord, please don't let Kim and Kanye get a hold of this one! Now, the L.A. Times is a family newspaper, and a serious newspaper, so (spoiler alert!) there will be absolutely no pictures accompanying this post such as those on the website of the Guardian -- which you would think is a serious newspaper, having broken the Edward Snowden/NSA surveillance scandal and all, but I guess still retains its British cheek, shall we say. Anyway, the app: The basic idea is that Sex With Glass will allow a couple, both properly equipped with said devices, to experience sex from a, ahem, different point of view.

If you're a quarterback from the class of 2015, Josh Rosen of St. John Bosco is the standard to beat. Above is video from his junior season, when he passed for 3,200 yards and 39 touchdowns in leading the Braves to a 16-0 record. Eric.email@example.com

Now that Bill Redell is back as coach at Oaks Christian, you can always count on him to come forth with some interesting comments. His latest is that he coached two teams that could compete with this year's 16-0 St. John Bosco team. "I think the 1986 Crespi team and the 15-0 2006 Oaks Christian team could compete with St. John Bosco," Redell said Monday. Sorry, Bill, they might be able to compete but they'd never win. First, the 1986 team , led by Russell White, lost to St. John Bosco during the regular season, then beat the Braves in the Big Five championship game.

There's little doubt that 10 years from now, when high school football fans and experts look back and debate how good Bellflower St. John Bosco's team was in 2013, the verdict will be near unanimous: the best in Southern California history. Even before Saturday night's 20-14 victory over Concord De La Salle in the CIF state championship Open Division bowl game, the Braves (16-0) were receiving rave reviews. Outgoing Santa Margarita Coach Harry Welch said the Braves were the best team he'd seen since he started coaching in 1965.

By game time on Saturday night for the CIF state championship Open Division bowl game, there was an unheard-of occurrence. Hundreds of fans were stuck in long lines outside StubHub Center trying to buy a ticket for the game of the year in high school football. The lure of seeing unbeaten Bellflower St. John Bosco take on unbeaten Concord De La Salle produced a crowd of 16,791, the largest in the eight-year history of CIF bowl games. And what a game it was. Clinging to a six-point lead, St. John Bosco got an interception from lineman Gavin Windes on fourth down at the 38-yard line with 2:15 left, and the Braves held on for a 20-14 victory.

Forget the fancy Xs and O's. The new football coach arrived with a simple message. Surveying the roster he inherited, Jason Negro saw plenty of talented kids who could run around and make plays. But they lacked muscle, and he told them so. "We had to challenge people," he recalls. "We had to be tougher. " It wasn't something the St. John Bosco players necessarily wanted to hear. And they weren't entirely prepared for Negro's grueling off-season workouts. "Some of the guys - guys who had been here before - were used to taking a day or two off," center Elijah Zabludoff, who has been writing about his experiences this season for The Times' prep sports blog, recalled.
