City Section teams have not fared well against Southern Section opponents in recent weeks but two-time City Division I champion Narbonne will look to reverse that trend against Gardena Serra tonight in Harbor City.  The Gauchos (3-1) dealt Serra one of its two losses last season. The Cavaliers (4-0) are ranked #3 in the Southland by The Times and #1 in the Western Division.

In the final season of “Breaking Bad,” it almost seems as if Vince Gilligan and his writers are going out of their way to show us how smug and repugnant a triumphant Walter White would be. Here's a man who has no natural enemies now that Mike's grudgingly working with him but seems intent on making everybody in his life into an enemy, just from being a jerk to them. Walter's acting worse and worse, committing greater and greater sins, and he seems pretty sure of himself. I have a friend who's watching the show almost solely to see how Walter gets his comeuppance now, and he's terrified one's not coming.

If the gay-themed "Tennessee Queer" came out 20 years ago - or was at least a more deftly made film - perhaps it wouldn't seem so desperately past its sell-by date. But this unevenly acted yuckfest, which is as unsubtle as its title, has all the pizazz of a bad sitcom episode. When Jason Potts (Christian Walker), a New York City librarian living in domestic bliss with his idyllic boyfriend (Jerre Dye), is summoned back to his native Smyth, Tenn., under false pretenses (long story)

As the nation is glued to the coverage of the recent bombing in Boston and the explosion at a Texas fertilizer  plant, music lovers filing into the Polo Grounds are ready to enjoy three packed days of nonstop music - but they are walking with a bit more American pride. At an ID check near the mainstage - that's where festivalgoers get wristbands to buy alcohol - a worker was clad in a Boston Red Sox jersey. “I flew out here to work the festival and that … happened in between the weekends.

Please check your address when reporting on the alleged murders in Santa Rosa Valley. This area is considered to be a part of Thousand Oaks or Camarillo but certainly not Moorpark. Amazing, isn't it, that Thousand Oaks and Simi Valley--both towns of 100,000 with wonderful clean, safe living records--can't have their names tarnished by this event so The Times conveniently labeled Moorpark with this crime. Thanks but no thanks! Pride of ownership says this belongs in Thousand Oaks.

On Monday morning, I strolled from the East India Club - my temporary address while working from London - and went to watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. Little did I know I would come away from the event with a novel insight into the controversial cyber-spying operations being run by British and American intelligence agencies. Navigating through the tourist throng, I took a position near the front gate of the palace with a decent view of marching red-coated soldiers in their towering bearskin hats.

While it's not without its fleeting charms, the 2007-shot underdog sports comedy "The Yankles," directed by David R. Brooks from a script he co-wrote with his brother, Zev, takes its eye off the ball one too many times. Had this offbeat tale of an orthodox yeshiva baseball team and its new coach, Charlie (Brian Wimmer) - an ex-major leaguer and DUI parolee forced into community service - simply stuck to its high-concept logline, it might have proved a more satisfying romp. But burdened by an excessive intro, a strained subplot involving another former baseball champ ("Happy Days'" Don Most)

If the patriot isn't in fans for Sunday's Super Bowl, maybe today's Gold Cup final pitting the United States against Costa Rica will make for some demonstrable post-Sept.11 pride. For the first time in the tournament, a pro-American crowd can be a reality. David Gorman Monterey Park

Apparently the Premier magazine panel (Larry Stewart's column, April 24) doesn't know anything about movies. How they could leave out "The Pride of the Yankees" for the 10 best sports movies is absurd. This classic is on a par with "Raging Bull" (which was rated No. 1). Moreover, the panel was also remiss in not including the great boxing movie "Body and Soul." WALLY STEIN Los Angeles

SOCHI, Russia - On a warm slope above the Black Sea, America's colors blazed with new definition. Red, white and blue became Joss, Gus and Nick. In the perfect sweep for an evolving Winter Olympics and the ever-changing American athletes who twist through them, Joss Christensen, Gus Kenworthy and Nick Goepper finished first, second and third, respectively, in the inaugural men's slopestyle skiing competition Thursday. Christensen skied with a photo of his late father tucked into his suit.

No sport reflects Russia's cultural legacy better than figure skating. Go to a ballet performed by St. Petersburg's renowned company, the Mariinsky, and you will see dancers in movements that have become essential parts of skating: spins, spirals, lifts, jumps and throws. The first dance school in St. Petersburg opened in 1738, just 35 years after Peter the Great founded the city. "We have a ballet culture," said Artur Dmitriev before he won his second Olympic pairs gold medal in 1998.

Since it became apparent last week that Satya Nadella was in line to become only the third chief executive of Microsoft, the Indian community in Silicon Valley has been bubbling over with pride. That his ascension would generate such excitement might seem surprising at first. Indians have become a force in Silicon Valley, where about 15% of tech start-ups have Indian founders and a handful of notable companies, such has Adobe Systems, have Indian chief executives. Yet Nadella's appointment is being hailed by Indians as something more.

At the Starr house in San Diego on Sunday, there was screaming during the Super Bowl when Malcolm Smith, a 2007 Woodland Hills Taft gradate, returned an interception of a Peyton Manning pass 69 yards for a touchdown. "It was pandemonium," said Troy Starr, who coached Smith at Taft. Smith was named MVP of the Super Bowl after helping the Seattle Seahawks defeat the Denver Broncos, 43-8. "How cool is that?" Starr said. "It couldn't have happened to a better kid. " Starr, now the head coach at Helix High, coached Smith and his older brother, Steve, who won a Super Bowl with the New York Giants.

 Student sections keep coming up with ideas on how to inspire players, and at San Marcos High, the student section, known as The Pride, offered its own flashy way of firing up the basketball team in pregame player introductions. Above is video from Friday's game.

Down at Lily's Bakery, the talk among those hunched over their beignets and iced coffee is focused on the upcoming Lunar New Year parade. The much-anticipated Feb. 1 procession, filled with lion dancers and dignitaries waving from passing cars, winds through Little Saigon as firecrackers pop and the old flag of South Vietnam flutters. The pressing question now is if a rainbow flag will be added to the colorful mix. After firm resistance, organizers of the Tet parade, along with other groups called to a community assembly, relented, agreeing to let a troop of Vietnamese American LGBT activists march.

Thank you for the excellent photo July 2 of the Cub Scouts and Fire Authority honor guard smartly saluting the flag at the Aliso Viejo inaugural ceremony. It looks like patriotism and community pride are alive and well in Orange County's newest city. Charles Jenner Los Alamitos

The Palm Springs International Film Festival gala or, as Tom Hanks called it, "This little, intimate, Sonny Bono rec-room chicken dinner get-together for two-and-a-half-thousand people," took place Saturday night. Meryl Streep picked up an award. So did Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts, Bruce Dern and Matthew McConaughey, among others. And though they were all seated within a few feet of one another in the airport-hangar-sized Palm Springs Convention Center, these Hollywood stars were more or less allowed to eat their pot-roast dinner in peace.

Ray Price was the mentor and the leader. He was discovered and brought to Columbia Records by Lefty Frizzell, and he made his first record on Columbia with Lefty's band. That was a song called "If You're Ever Lonely Darling. " After that, after he made his debut on Columbia, he gave many other people a chance to do the same thing. He brought Roger Miller to the surface, and he gave Willie Nelson a job in his band. In 1966, I was on tour with Ray down in the states of Texas and Oklahoma, and that was the first time I met Ray. Of course, I was a fan for many years before that.
