Sometimes conflict resolution calls for alternate ideas, so our quest for peace in Lakerland took us to the Hotel California, a.k.a. the Staples Center courtside seats of Glenn Frey and Irving Azoff.

Whatever Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal and Phil Jackson have experienced, anyone associated with the Eagles can relate. Playing in sold-out arenas? Done that. Reaching the pinnacle of their profession?
