Also, westbound Katella Avenue needs a right-turn-only lane at the intersection with Bloomfield Street in Los Alamitos. Katella is not even marked no parking near the intersection.

UC Irvine staggered into the Midwest this weekend and happened upon a basketball team in a greater state of disarray than itself. But it seems no amount of good fortune--or other people's misfortune--can right the hapless Anteaters' badly listing ship at this point.
