Balloon popping and an egg-rolling relay are unlikely to ever be sanctioned as Olympic events, but they will be highlights this month in the Warner Center Children's Corner's Summer Games. Preschoolers at the nonprofit day-care center in Woodland Hills have caught the Olympic spirit and have chosen the Games as their learning theme for August.

KEY MOMENT: Down by two runs in the ninth, Kole Calhoun double for his third hit of the game and Mike Trout hit a towering two-run homer to center field, his fifth of the season, against left-hander Sean Doolittle to pull the Angels even, 9-9. But Oakland went ahead in the 11th when Jed Lowrie singled and Josh Donaldson hit a run-scoring double to left against Yoslan Herrera. AT THE PLATE: Trout (double) and Howie Kendrick (single) drove in runs in the first, and Calhoun (two-run homer)

It used to be an anomaly when a National Football League game ran more than three hours. Now it has become the norm. According to the NFL, so far this season the average run time of a typical game is 3:11:56. That's about six minutes longer than what games averaged in 2011. Monday's game between the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos ran an astounding 3:40 and there was nothing exceptional about it to explain why it took so long to complete. On CBS, games are running about eight minutes longer than last season.

Gary Vitti's workspace at the Lakers' training facility is surrounded by a life-size skeleton, detailed charts of the human muscular system and books about tendons and ligaments. Lots of books. The medical library came in handy this season as the Lakers suffered a continual string of injuries, the worst in Vitti's 30 years as their trainer. A few days before his 60th birthday, Vitti sat down with The Times for a candid interview on how Kobe Bryant will look next season, why the Lakers were ailing all season and the recent outbursts of angry Lakers fans.

The NHL on Thursday canceled two more weeks' worth of games and pushed its dispute with the NHL Players' Assn. near the point of no return. The league wiped out games through Jan. 14 for a total of 625 canceled games, or 50.8% of the schedule. NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said via email Thursday that there had been no recent contact between the two sides and that no new negotiations were planned. The NHL's latest announcement - made, like those that preceded it, in a terse statement - for all intents creates a short-term deadline for preserving even a severely shortened season.

No stranger to the art of campaigning, Washington has thrown its hat into the ring as a candidate for the 2024 Olympics. The announcement came Tuesday as District of Columbia officials said they have formed a nonprofit group that will seek to bring the Summer Games back to the United States for the first time since 1996 in Atlanta. "We are the only major capital city in the world not to have hosted the Games yet," said Bob Sweeney, president of DC 2024. Washington joins Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Tulsa, Okla., as places where officials have openly discussed their interest in hosting the Olympics.

The dribs and drabs  -- almost like an annoying dripping faucet -- have taken a large toll. Hockey's labor dispute has now accounted for the loss of 42.8% of the NHL season, 526 regular-season games. The NHL announced on Monday the cancellation of games through Dec. 30 because of the absence of a new collective bargaining agreement. This means the loss of eight more games for the reigning Stanley Cup champion Kings, including three home dates at Staples Center. They were to have played at Ottawa on Dec. 15, Boston on Dec. 17, Detroit on Dec. 18 and San Jose on Dec. 20 before returning home to play the Sharks on Dec. 22 and the Coyotes on Dec. 26. The other canceled games were at Phoenix on Dec. 27 and the Ducks at Staples Center on Dec. 29. In addition to the game against the Kings, the Ducks will be losing six more games in the latest round of cuts.

The Lakers have a 4-6 record under Coach Mike D'Antoni, losing 15 of 40 quarters (37.5%). In comparison, the team went 1-4 under Mike Brown, losing 11 of 20 quarters (55%). In the six-game Bernie Bickerstaff interim period, the Lakers lost just four of 24 quarters (16.7%), but three were in the same game (San Antonio Spurs). In the five Bickerstaff victories, the Lakers lost just a single quarter. The team has won 70% of their first quarters (7-3) under D'Antoni, suggesting the issue may go beyond questions in the starting lineup.

 Lacking enough players, North Hollywood Campbell Hall will forfeit Alpha League football games against Viewpoint, Sierra Canyon and Kilpatrick, Athletic Director Juan Velazquez said. By deciding not to play the league opponents, it gives the three teams an opportunity to schedule another opponent. The team still intends to play Firebaugh on Oct. 12. Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

 For canceling its scheduled football game against Crenshaw last season at the last minute and also canceling another game, West Adams has been penalized by the City Section, losing two games for the 2013 season and will only have eight regular-season games, according to Commissioner John Aguirre. Crenshaw had scheduled West Adams as its homecoming game, causing lots of Crenshaw alumni to change plans that had been months in the making. Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

The Clippers have never won more games in a season. They've also never been better at home. All of which may not mean much depending on how the next few months go. There was no denying that the Clippers' 117-105 triumph over the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night at Staples Center gave them franchise records of 57 victories and 34 home wins in the same season. BOX SCORE: Clippers 117, Nuggets 105 Of course, those aren't the ultimate goals for a team seeking to make it past the second round of the playoffs for the first time.

Olympic swimming legend Michael Phelps plans to return to competition at the Arena Grand Prix on April 24-26 in Mesa, Ariz., a decision that could lead to a fifth Olympic appearance at Rio in 2016. Phelps, 28, has not competed since the 2012 London Olympics, where he won four gold and six total medals, giving him Olympic career records for both (18 and 22.) Phelps' coach, Bob Bowman, told the Chicago Tribune on March 25 the swimmer would probably get into a meet "sometime soon.

In a regular season when so much has gone right for the Ducks, Teemu Selanne closed it perfectly Sunday by tugging a fellow Anaheim legend onto the ice for a final skate and embrace in front of an adoring sellout crowd. The Ducks (54-20-8) produced their NHL-best 26th comeback victory with a 3-2 overtime triumph over the Colorado Avalanche at Honda Center. Afterward, Selanne, 43, found his friend and former Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who's expected to join him in retirement at season's end. “Teemu's such a class act and he's known for a while that this possibly could be my last game,” Giguere said after his 33-save night for the Central Division champions.

A top seed vs. a No. 8 seed usually is a formality - there was a notable exception involving the Kings two years ago - but Dallas has won two of three games against the Ducks this season. The Oct. 20 opener was the Ducks' lone victory, as they overcame a 3-1 deficit with two Corey Perry goals and a shutout relief appearance by rookie goalie Frederik Andersen in his NHL debut, winning 6-3, after forward Ryan Garbutt launched himself at former Ducks forward Dustin Penner, who suffered a concussion on the hit. Garbutt was suspended.

Things to watch when the Lakers play the Denver Nuggets Tuesday night at Staples Center. The Lakers have a 3-1 series lead. 1. The Lakers need to get off to a fast start. The opening minutes will provide a good gauge on how each team views this series. Will Denver pour everything it has on the floor to avoid elimination or will it show resignation that the Lakers will likely advance to the next round? Will the Lakers build on their 12-1 mark in closeout games since 2008 or will they use this series cushion as an excuse to slack off?

Sports is a star-driven business. In this town, baseball is about Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, about Clayton Kershaw and Yasiel Puig. But no team wins on star power alone. The supporting cast is critical. For the everyman in baseball, for the men that round out a lineup and a pitching staff, the celebrations and milestones are rare. On Saturday, the Angels were treated to one of those special moments. BOX SCORE: Mets 7, Angels 6 (13 inns.) Raul Ibanez reached 2,000 career hits.

Emerging from the rubble of the Lakers' worst season since moving to Los Angeles was the story of someone who shall inherit the earth. Or at least a really nice pay raise. Jodie Meeks has been the Lakers' most consistent player, managing to avoid serious injury and continually putting in an honest night's work during a dreadful season for the franchise. He is averaging a career-best 15.6 points, almost double his output last season, but faces the same off-season question as almost everyone on the roster.
