Earlier this month a German court might have succeeded in doing what no soccer team in Europe has been able to do in quite some time, namely wound Bayern Munich. Whether the conviction of team President Uli Hoeness for tax evasion is simply a minor scratch or a mortal blow remains to be seen. But Hoeness' four-day trial, which captivated the country and embarrassed the team, couldn't have come at a worse time for Bayern, which is completing what may be the most dominant two-year stretch in club soccer history.

PHOENIX - The Dodgers might have become considerably more entertaining Thursday. Erisbel Arruebarrena reported to camp. Arruebarrena, a 23-year-old shortstop, said he plays with the same flair and emotion as Yasiel Puig, his childhood friend from Cuba. “That's typical of Latinos,” Arruebarrena said. Like Puig, he will be well-compensated. Arruebarrena's five-year contract is guaranteed for $25 million. Arruebarrena and Puig have known each other since they were 9 years old. They lived near each other in the province of Cienfuegos and played for its team in the Cuban league.

The Vacationer ($119) from Cinda B is like a big, soft quilt that’s been turned into a big, soft duffel. The zippered bag, 24 by 14 by 14 inches, has two outside pockets, three inside pockets and 16-inch carry straps. It stashes flat. It comes in a slew of luscious patterns and color combinations, from bold to muted. In a pinch, the Vacationer can squish into a nicely padded pillow substitute.

Regarding Nina J. Easton's June 11 article, "Mr. Okamoto Goes to Hollywood": Naofumi Okamoto the next mogul? Calendar should beware overpaid publicists with a flair for hyperbole. After reading the comments of Okamoto and his Andy Devine-like sidekick, Sergei Goncharoff, I think the only thing they've made is enemies. The next project involving them will be when they're ridden out of town on a rail. LINDA COMSTOCK Beverly Hills

The market opened just over a week ago in West Beirut. Goods for sale include Egyptian and Saudi video cassettes and long-sleeved, ankle-length Islamic women's gowns, sold in a wide range of patterns and cuts to satisfy the Lebanese flair for elegance.

The Jerry Payne who wrote that beautiful article in the Travel Section should at least do a travel book. I read all of Henry David Thoreau's books, even his fiction, and I may be personally prejudiced, but Payne has far more talent and a far greater flair for human interest. Such talent should be used.

Philadelphia plays at Dallas in a winner-take-all game next Sunday with the NFC East title hanging in the balance. That means another mental matchup between Eagles Coach Chip Kelly and Cowboys defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin. Kelly and Kiffin are familiar foes, as Kelly was head coach at Oregon when Kiffin was defensive coordinator at USC. A year ago, Kelly's Ducks generated the most yards ever against the Trojans. USC's biggest meltdown in 2012 was a 62-51 loss to Oregon, in which the Ducks gained 730 yards, including 321 on the ground by Kenjon Barner.

For the true baseball fan, Cuba is a mecca. There are no giant video screens with animated hands demanding that you clap. There are no overcaffeinated and overamplified cheerleaders pressuring you to make some noise. In Cuba, there is no artificial passion. The excitement comes from within the hearts of the fans, and from the joy of the players. That is the essence of watching Yasiel Puig, and the Dodgers are more than happy to put up with the occasional culture clash.

Van Dyke Parks has a story for everything in his life, from the name of his pet schnauzer to the mug in which he served a visitor coffee on a recent morning at his antique-lined home in Pasadena. "You know where I got that cup?" asked Parks, an important figure on the margins of the Los Angeles pop scene since the mid-1960s, when he wrote allusive lyrics for the Beach Boys' ill-fated "Smile" album. The mug was emblazoned with the logo of the New York Flute Club, founded nearly a century ago by Georges Barrère, whose grandson Paul went on to play in the band Little Feat with one of Parks' best friends, the late Lowell George.

Asked to describe the Dodgers' season up to the All-Star break, Manager Don Mattingly didn't know what to say. "Well . . . " he started. He leaned his head to one side, then the other. "It's been obviously unscripted," Mattingly said. "It ended up OK. We survived it. " Even after a 3-1 defeat by the Colorado Rockies on Sunday at Dodger Stadium, the Dodgers went into the All-Star break only 21/2 games behind first-place Arizona in the National League West. Winners in 17 of their last 22 games, they are 47-47.

SAN ANTONIO — Who said the San Antonio Spurs couldn't have a good time? And show a little flash? They ran up, down and over the Miami Heat, 113-77, in Game 3 of the NBA Finals Tuesday night, discarding their bland, vanilla reputation for something a lot more peppery. They never trailed, completely quashed LeBron James and kept their fans roaring the entire time while taking a 2-1 series lead at AT&T Center. Here's all that needed to be known: Danny Green and Gary Neal outscored James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, 51-43, as the Spurs took a step closer to their fifth championship since 1999.

Every filmmaker in Hollywood worth his final cut has a signature visual flourish that functions something like a filmic fingerprint. For Martin Scorsese, it's the long, uninterrupted tracking shot. For John Woo, the balletic deployment of two-handed gun violence. Wes Anderson never met a painterly tableau he didn't like. And Steven Spielberg favors the slow zoom in just about every one of his movies. J.J. Abrams , meanwhile, tends toward a cinematographic trope that looks, at first glance, like a screw-up -- lens flare -- i.e. intentionally flooding the camera frame with light to deliberately wash out or obscure the imagery on-screen.

Google paid animated homage Wednesday to iconic designer and artist Saul Bass with one of its more lively Doodles. To mark what would have been the movie title designer's 93 rd birthday, the Google cartoon recaps several of Bass' films using his signature jagged edges and scattered text to the tune of Dave Brubeck's "Unsquare Dance. " Bass, born in New York in 1920, worked in Hollywood with such film greats as Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Otto Preminger and Martin Scorsese.
