Welcome, Fall TV Season, already in progress. Despite myself, and knowing that you will let me down at least as much as you might lift me up, I must admit that the big billboards heralding your big new shows raised in me a childlike rush of anticipation. (Though perhaps it is really the memory of "Get Smart!" I am excited for.) I notice that you are especially full of cops and lawyers this year — and superheroes, detectives and spies — which means you are also full of criminals.

Three months ago, when Apple reported its holiday earnings, the company posted record revenues thanks to refreshed lines of iPads and iPhones that had launched in the fall.  But instead of basking in a big win, Apple got pounded by Wall Street because of what the company said would happen in this current quarter. Apple projected a range of revenue expectations that raised the possibility of its first revenue decline in more than a decade. Apple is scheduled to report second-quarter earnings after the markets close Wednesday, and most analysts think the company will actually squeak out a slight revenue gain.

1. INDIANA 56-26 (Home: 35-6; Road: 21-20) vs. 8. ATLANTA 38-44 (Home: 24-17; Road: 14-27) Season series: Tied, 2-2. Key stat: Even with its epic late-season slide, Indiana still ranked second in the league by giving up only 92.3 points per game. Outlook: Atlanta is a tough matchup for the Pacers because of its ability to space the floor with three-point shooters Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll, Lou Williams and Jeff Teague. The Hawks also won't be lacking for confidence after beating Indiana by 19 points on the road in the teams' last meeting.

EAST BOSTON RED SOX 2010: 89-73, third Last year in playoffs: 2009 The Carl Crawford-Adrian Gonzalez duo should cost the Red Sox $300 million, a steep price for the keys to reviving what could be baseball's most dynamic lineup. The Red Sox stole 68 bases last year, when Jacoby Ellsbury was injured. But Ellsbury stole 70 by himself in 2009 and Crawford has stolen 50 five times. J.D. Drew, in his 14th and possibly last year, has yet to play a 150-game season.

MAACO BOWL When: Dec. 22 Where: Las Vegas Time: 8 p.m. TV: ESPN About Utah (10-2, 7-1 Mountain West Conference): The Utes got off to an 8-0 start and were among a crowded pack of potential Bowl Championship Series busters, but the Utes stumbled hard with back-to-back losses to Texas Christian and Notre Dame. Utah regrouped to close out the season with wins over two tough defenses ? San Diego State and rival Brigham Young. The Utes will be relying on backup quarterback Terrance Cain after starter Jordan Wynn suffered a season-ending shoulder injury against the Cougars.

Is this representation? We elect public officials to school boards in the hopes that our wishes and desires for good education will be reflected in their actions and policies. It's difficult to avoid the conclusion that we've simply inaugurated a dynasty of bureaucrats who manage very well to keep the average district parent out in the cold. The Newport-Mesa School Board is throwing parents a bone in its recent announcement of the "parents day" review of the history/social sciences continuum.

Though the annual SEMA show can often feel like theater of the absurd for the automotive world, there are some pockets of normality flying below the radar. One of them at next week's Las Vegas show will be a special version of Chevy's compact Sonic sedan that's headed for production. It's called the Sonic Dusk and it aims to add a bit of refinement to the sub-compact segment. No seven layers of purple paint here, or chromed-out doors that open backwards. Just some low-key body kit pieces below the front and rear bumpers and along the sides of the car. A small rear spoiler sits on the trunk lid, while the car rolls on unique 18-inch alloy wheels.

The Lakers' worst season (26-55) in Los Angeles finally comes to an end Wednesday night when they visit the San Antonio Spurs (62-19). The Spurs finished with the best record in the NBA and are hoping to make another run to the NBA Finals. The Lakers, meanwhile, are set to hold exit meetings on Thursday and Friday. Out again Wednesday will be Pau Gasol (vertigo), Chris Kaman (calf), Kobe Bryant (knee), Xavier Henry (knee, wrist), Steve Nash (back) and Kent Bazemore (foot)

The Lakers (25-55) play arguably their most important game of the season on Monday night, visiting the also-lottery-bound Utah Jazz (24-56). Measured by futility, both teams are well-positioned for the 2014 NBA draft lottery. The Jazz are currently the fourth-worst team in the league, but another win would push them into a three-way tie in the win column with the Boston Celtics and Lakers. While each team would have an equal 9% chance at the top pick in the NBA draft, the league would flip coins to determine the order of each franchise -- should they not win the lottery.

The Lakers head into Week 25, the final week of the season, with a seven-game losing streak. Should the Lakers lose their final two games, they would climb into at least a tie with the Utah Jazz and Boston Celtics for the fourth-worst record in the NBA. While the season hasn't exactly been fun for their fans to watch, the Lakers should be rewarded with a top prospect in June's NBA draft. Injuries have been the story, with Pau Gasol (vertigo), Chris Kaman (calf), Kobe Bryant (knee)

One season under the NHL's realigned conference setup probably was enough for Eastern teams to veto future additions from the West. The Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets, who moved from the West to the East before this season, won their new conference's two wild-card playoff berths. The Red Wings will make their 23rd consecutive postseason appearance, and the Blue Jackets will make their second appearance in franchise history. First place in the East - and overall - went to the Boston Bruins, with the Ducks winning the No. 1 spot in the West.

The Lakers (25-54) will finish their regular-season home schedule as they host the Memphis Grizzlies (47-32) on Sunday night at Staples Center. Fifteen of 16 teams have locked in playoff positions. The Grizzlies are in eighth place in the Western Conference, hoping to hold on to the final postseason berth. The Phoenix Suns (47-33) are just half a game behind the Grizzlies. Memphis owns the head-to-head tiebreaker, but the Grizzlies visit the Suns on Monday night. Should the Lakers and Suns both beat the Grizzlies, Phoenix would overtake Memphis in the standings.

The Golden State Warriors (48-30) fell to the Denver Nuggets (35-44) by a single point on Thursday night, giving up a Kenneth Faried hook shot with 1.8 seconds left on the clock. The Lakers (25-53) have theoretically relished the role of playing spoiler to teams fighting for playoff position, although they haven't exactly gotten much done on that front -- losing seven of their last eight. Another loss would put the Warriors' hold on the sixth playoff seed in the Western Conference at risk to the Phoenix Suns (47-31)

Sportscaster Bob Costas was mostly happy with the way NBC handled the 2012 London Summer Olympics, but during an appearance on "Conan" on Wednesday night, he couldn't help but express his irritation at one major programming choice. "I thought were doing well headed to the finish line," Costas told host Conan O'Brien about the coverage. "We get right to the end of the closing ceremony. They extinguish the flame. And the final act in a closing ceremony that had iconic British pop acts ... the final act is the Who. And NBC decides at that moment that they should provide America with a sneak preview of "Animal Practice" and come back an hour later and have the Who. " O'Brien, no fan of NBC himself, urged Costas to go on, which Costas obliged.
