THE day I received an e-mail from a married male acquaintance that he signed with an "XO" was the day I realized I didn't know what "XO" meant anymore. I usually reserve my own XOs -- which, as an admittedly pathetic attempt at originality, are actually XXs -- for female friends, and they typically mean either "I like you," "I love you" or "I'd write more if this e-mail wasn't 37th on a list of 200 that I need to respond to."

The L.A. KISS unraveled during its second home game at Honda Center in Anaheim on Saturday night as it lost, 40-30, to the Cleveland Gladiators. The defense seemed almost nonexistent at times, the offense could not find a rhythm and even the fans seemed to be against them in the third quarter when a sure touchdown throw by quarterback J.J. Raterink to receiver Donovan Morgan was broken up by a fan in the front row who reached over to grab the...

Last week, Erin Andrews was reporting from pit row at the Daytona 500 when she interviewed rapper 50 Cent, who leaned in for a kiss. Andrews turned her head quickly and rushed off, leaving many to speculate that she was unhappy with the rapper for attempting to kiss her on air. Not true, Andrews says. "It was my fault. I was rushed -- none of the drivers were in their spot for the Daytona 500 pit walk. They were all in the bathroom," Andrews told "Access Hollywood" on Wednesday.

This 1989 release is a sleek, outrageous dark comedy that's all the funnier for constantly teetering on the brink of sheer tastelessness and silliness. Nicolas Cage (pictured) gives one of the performances of the decade as an obnoxious hotshot literary agent who falls for Jennifer Beals' sexy vampire. Cinemax early Sunday at 2:25 a.m.

I absolutely cannot believe a 6-year-old boy was suspended from school on the grounds of sexual harassment after kissing a girl on the cheek at his school (Sept. 25)! I don't call that harassment. I call it normal childhood development. Looks like the administrators of that school have some growing up to do themselves. I think they should go sit in the corner and not move until they get a grip! MICHELLE COOK Northridge Although it's now fashionable to be anti-"politically correct," I was outraged by your Sept.

LONDON -- Our friends over at Yahoo (Fourth-Place Medal) unearthed this wildly entertaining clip of the unsuspecting Sky News reporter at the London Olympics who was caught off guard by a big kiss on the cheek from a female spectator. Cheeky, indeed. The reporter, who was in the middle of his stand-up remote, handled the crazy moment quite well and had a good laugh after she sprinted up from behind him. The fan, wearing a English soccer jersey, said: "Thank you!" before planting the kiss.

In an appearance on Friday's “Late Show,” British-Irish boy band One Direction got some serious love from an unexpected admirer - none other than acting legend (and recent Kennedy Center honoree) Dustin Hoffman, who laid a big, passionate kiss on Niall Horan, a.k.a. the Irish one. The snog came just seconds after the boys entered the Ed Sullivan Theater (for some reason, to the sounds of Bob Dylan's “Like a Rolling Stone”). Hoffman followed the band onto the stage, only to discover there wasn't enough room for him to sit. After David Letterman refused to allow Hoffman to sit on his lap, the actor opted to cozy up next to Horan on the armrest.

Americans will gather for a group "kiss-in" in Times Square and buglers across the country will play the military funeral tune "Taps" on Saturday in the first national day of remembrance for the World War Two generation. This year's event comes on the 65th anniversary of what Americans call V-J Day, marking the victory over Japan that ended the war in 1945. The celebration was immortalized in Alfred Eisenstaedt's photograph of an unidentified sailor kissing nurse Edith Shain in Times Square.

Tom Umberg still remembers the Ducks' inaugural game at Honda Center in 1993. The Arrowhead Pond, as it was then called, was packed with more than 17,000 fans, all using their duck calls to accompany a Dixieland band in its rendition of "When the Ducks Go Marching In. " At one point during the pregame show Wild Wing, the team's greater than life-sized duck mascot, flew into the arena from the rafters. Umberg was in awe. So much so that almost 21 years later he remembers the pregame more than the final score.

This post has been updated. See below for details. Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of the rock band KISS have long cherished living in aggrieved opposition to critics who they have felt failed to respect Kiss' heavy metal oeuvre , and the band's impending induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame isn't changing their tune. Stanley recently complained to the Associated Press that KISS was being given short shrift by the rock hall because two members of the current four-man lineup, drummer Eric Singer and guitarist Tommy Thayer, aren't going to be hall of famers, even though they “have been in the band for decades and played on multiplatinum albums and toured the world.”  Instead, original drummer Peter Criss and original lead guitarist Ace Frehley, who were part of KISS' 1970s ascension to stardom but exited in the early 1980s, will be inducted along with perennial frontmen Simmons and Stanley.

The sideshow at Dodger Stadium is about to begin as Paul Stanley emerges from his backstage trailer, shirtless and in full kabuki drag: bright red lips, his face painted harlequin white, a black star over his right eye. The singer-guitarist is here to perform with his band KISS but hears his name and walks over to a crowd gathered at the fence. " Arriba !" yells one fan, and Stanley reaches over to shake hands, as dozens of cellphones take snapshots. "Let me see your shoes!" shouts another, and Stanley half-climbs the fence to swing a tasseled silver-and-black platform boot over the top. "Thanks, Paul!"
