Becka worked until midnight helping Danny frame his pictures, and during all that time did Jen show up at the studio? Did Jen phone, did Jen drop off a hot casserole, did Jen so much as offer to order them a pizza? She did not. Jen stayed home with a headache and watched "Moulin Rouge." Becka could not believe that a wife would flake out like this when her husband has a big art opening the very next day. It was crazy. It was lazy. But you had to say one thing: It was just like Jen.

There is one small downside to winning the William M. Jennings Trophy, according to Kings goalie Jonathan Quick. The Jennings award goes to "the goalkeeper(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against it. " It had never been won by a Kings' goalie and Quick won it outright when the Boston Bruins allowed three goals Sunday in their final game of the season, bringing their total to 177. Los Angeles allowed 174 goals this season. "The goalie is nominated to make the speech at the awards there, but the team gave up the least amount of goals in the league," Quick said on Saturday night.

Jen and I met at Ohio University and started dating while she worked in Chicago and I worked in Washington. We came to Los Angeles in 2001 (her) and 2002 (me). Then, like all couples who move to Los Angeles, we broke up. After two years together, the "L.A. era" of our relationship lasted two months. We parted ways mutually, following an otherwise nice dinner at Bossa Nova on Sunset Boulevard. I drove past it for years thinking, "That place with the surprisingly affordable entrees is where we went the night it ended.

If the hockey gods had a sense of humor, they would have arranged for the Kings and the Ducks to play for the Pacific Division title Saturday at Staples Center. At the very least, they would have put one team in position to knock the other out of the playoffs. Alas, the hockey gods must have been busy elsewhere because they didn't leave much drama surrounding Saturday's game. The Kings have been locked into third place in the division for a while, certain that they will start on the road against the San Jose Sharks, likely on Wednesday.

WE were about halfway through Arizona when Jen asked me, "What's been your favorite part of this trip?" My favorite? Wow. What a question. A slide show of all we had done since we started driving west from New York began playing in my head. It had been a little more than a week since we had begun our cross-country journey, but there had been so many in-the-moment moments that choosing just one seemed as impossible as picking one highlight of the fading year on New Year's Eve.

Peter Jennings, 64, anchor of ABC's "World News Tonight," was on the air for 17 hours the day of the attacks. * "I was in the newsroom when it happened, when the first plane hit, so I was steps--five feet--from the anchor desk. And I did what you always do in a circumstance like that: You sit down, you plug in and you begin to try to make sense of what is happening.

Can we talk about: How Jennifer Garner came to star in "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past"? I can't figure it out. First, it stars Matthew McConaughey. Second, she plays a woman waiting around for a womanizer (that's McConaughey) to change his ways. Note to Hollywood: This is not what women want to see. Surely, Garner got better offers after "Juno." What gives, Jen? (Friday) -- Even with Mike White and his pop gone, we're still talking about: "The Amazing Race."

ABC's "World News Tonight" topped the evening news ratings for the first time in more than a year -- the increased viewership amounting to yet another tribute to Peter Jennings. The longtime ABC News anchorman died of lung cancer Aug. 7. The following day's "World News Tonight," largely devoted to Jennings' legacy, was seen by 10.5 million viewers, according to figures released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. The broadcast hasn't had that many viewers in August since 1998.

Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross, the top-seeded women's team at the AVP Championships beach volleyball tournament in Huntington Beach, lost a set Saturday but not a match. Jake Gibb and Casey Patterson, the top-seeded men's duo that is on a four-tournament winning streak, had to work much harder. Gibb and Patterson, who wears a mohawk, same as his two young sons, lost their first match Saturday but came back to win two more and advance to Sunday's semifinals. After losing to eighth-seeded Brad Keenan and John Mayer, 21-19, 12-21, 15-13, in their first match Saturday, Gibb and Patterson recovered to first beat 12th-seeded Pedro Brazao and Steve Grotkowski, 21-19, 21-16, and then seventh-seeded Ryan Doherty and 2008 Olympics gold medalist Todd Rogers, 21-16, 21-17, to advance to Sunday's semifinals.

She's 35 years old and has won 112 beach volleyball tournaments, tied for most in the history of the sport with her now-retired former partner Misty May-Treanor.

Dianne DeNecochea, a 45-year-old professional beach volleyball player, said Saturday at the AVP Championships in Huntington Beach that she believes three-time Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings will be sending a positive message for female athletes if the mother of three attempts to win more gold at the 2016 Summer Games. "It gives a message to women that they can be pro athletes and have families and be successful at both. We can do it," said DeNecochea, who lost along with partner Raquel Ferreira in a winner's bracket match Saturday morning to the top-seeded team of April Ross and Walsh Jennings, 21-16, 21-15, in 42 minutes.

Jason Jennings of the Colorado Rockies is no slouch with the bat. And now he has one of the biggest hits of his career. Jennings lined a game-tying two-run homer off Greg Maddux in the Rockies' 4-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs Saturday at Wrigley Field. "He left it out over the plate and I was able to take advantage of it," said Jennings, who entered this season with a career average of .267.

He is shown midway through the documentary conducting a discussion among HIV-positive black men. It was recorded a few weeks before Jennings was diagnosed with cancer in spring, 2005.

Jen Kessy, a 36-year-old from San Juan Capistrano, was one of the happiest athletes in the world a year ago. She was an Olympic beach volleyball silver medalist with partner April Ross and no one was happier than her sports-crazy father Ron Kessy. This year Ron, only 57, died in his sleep of a heart attack, shortly after Kessy had returned from a tournament in China. "It's just been one of the worst years of my life," Kessy said Friday after she and partner Rachel Scott, seeded fifth at the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour event in Huntington Beach, were upset in the first round by Sarah Day and Kaitlin Nielsen, 21-17, 21-23, 15-13.
