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: The Angels were in position to hand Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka his first loss since Aug. 19, 2012, and end his 31-game win streak dating back to Japan. But Garrett Richards' two-seam fastball to Mark Teixeira didn't sink, and a pitch the right-hander called the "one mistake I made" was crushed for a solo homer into the second deck in right field, tying the score, 2-2, in the seventh inning. AT THE PLATE: The Angels scored in the fourth on Erick Aybar's double, Ian Stewart's hit by pitch, Chris Iannetta's walk and J.B. Shuck's run-scoring fielder's choice.

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.

For all the Donald Sterling issues surrounding the team, the Clippers still have a critical game to play Sunday -- and several gambling sites have them as slight, two-point favorites in Game 4 of their playoff series against the Golden State Warriors. The Clippers squeaked out a 98-96 win in Oakland on Thursday to take a 2-1 lead in the series against the Warriors. But the Clippers have lost 15 of 18 games against the Warriors in the Bay Area. BetUS.com expects a big game from Blake Griffin, with his over-and-under in combined points scored and rebounds at 36 in Game 4. The gaming site also expects a big contribution from Stephen Curry, setting his points scored over-and-under at 23-1/2 for the Warriors' All-Star point guard.

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.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — During pregame stretch Tuesday, shortstop Erick Aybar embraced Fernando Rodney and playfully tugged at the Tampa Bay Rays closer's goatee. Rodney shook hands with Albert Pujols and hugged several Angels relievers. There were no such pleasantries between Rodney and Angels Manager Mike Scioscia , not after Rodney, the former Angels reliever, fell out of favor with Scioscia and was buried on the bench in August and September. "I haven't talked to him, I won't seek him out," Rodney said of Scioscia.

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.

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

Blame it on missed shots. Blame it on it being a game the Clippers didn't have to win. Or blame it on the Donald Sterling distraction. But wherever you place the blame, the realization is this first-round playoff is now a best-of-three series. The Golden State Warriors pretty easily dominated the Clippers, 118-97, at Oracle Arena in Oakland on Sunday afternoon. The best-of-seven series is now tied, 2-2. Game 5 will be Tuesday night at Staples Center. If the series goes to a deciding seventh game it will be Saturday at Staples.

DALLAS -- Ducks forward Matt Beleskey, who has missed four playoff games with a lower body injury, returned to skate Sunday morning and is expected to play tonight in Game 6 of the Western Conference first-round series. The Ducks, leading 3-2, can eliminate the Dallas Stars with a victory in the game that begins at 5 p.m. Pacific time. Beleskey had nine goals and 15 assists during the regular season, and, with 64 penalty minutes in season, he gives the Ducks another rugged body in what's been a physical series marked by 27 penalties in Anaheim's 6-2 Game 5 victory.

As the Clippers struggled through a playoff loss in Oakland, the pressure on team owner Donald Sterling mounted Sunday with the release of additional minutes of a racially charged recording and a flurry of denunciations from President Obama, NBA players, fans and even the NAACP that had sought to honor him. The comments about blacks that were attributed to Sterling show "the United States continues to wrestle with the legacy of race and slavery and...

He has the beard of a hockey player residing in the first round of the playoffs, not one of a man living for months in the mountains. Kings forward Jeff Carter offered a take on the attitude - and, well, altitude - of a now-compelling playoff series between the Kings and the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference quarterfinals. "Yeah, we're halfway there. Halfway up the mountain," Carter said Sunday afternoon at the Kings' practice facility in El Segundo. Game 6 is Monday night at Staples Center with the Sharks holding a three-games-to-two series lead.

 For the first time since 2005, USC won a three-game series over UCLA this past weekend, sweeping the three games. It gives the Trojans (24-17, 12-9) a nine-game winning streak. Leading the way have been a group of former Southland high school standouts. Jake Hernandez, a Los Osos grad, leads the Trojans in hitting with a .367 batting average. Freshman Jeremy Martinez (Mater Dei) is at .324, and Loyola grad Kevin Swick is at .321. Kyle Davis, a sophomore from Garden Grove Pacifica, has become the standout closer.

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
