Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry met at a selection camp for an under-18 team -- or so Perry recalls. Getzlaf thought it wasn't until after the 2003 draft, in which the Ducks chose him 19th and Perry 28th, that they began forming the bond that led to having their names engraved on the Stanley Cup in 2007 and on Team Canada's roster for the Vancouver Olympics. After a moment's thought, Getzlaf decided Perry was right. "He made that team and I didn't," the rangy center said, "so that's why he remembers it."

Ryan Hansen of “Veronica Mars” fame has bought a home in Studio City for $1.35 million. The seller was animated movie producer Tom Jacomb. The nearly 4,000-square-foot traditional-style house, built in the 1970s and remodeled eight years ago, features vaulted beamed ceilings, wood plank floors, French doors, four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The grounds of the two-story home contain a swimming pool, a raised outdoor entertaining area and a stone fireplace. Hansen, 32, played Dick Casablancas on “Veronica Mars” during its 2004-07 run and in the recent film, and he is planning a spin-off series.

Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez will be forever linked. In our memories, anyway. The New York Jets finally parted ways with their embattled former starting quarterback this month, and now the team's coach is talking about altering the tattoo on his arm that currently features a woman wearing Sanchez's No. 6 jersey. Surely, that design seemed like a great idea at the time. Well, maybe not. But it's even sillier now. A reporter asked Ryan about the ink Tuesday, and the coach seemed to decide its fate right there on the spot.

WASHINGTON - As Rep.Paul D. Ryan begins to campaign as the presumed Republican vice presidential nominee, one aspect of his political career will be with him always: his votes. After nearly 14 years in Congress, the Wisconsin representative has amassed a record on many of the critical issues that have come to define the country's partisan divide. Overall, Ryan's votes define him as a loyal GOP foot soldier - one who has sided with party leaders even in cases in which some other small-government conservatives have refused to do so. In crucial moments near the end ofGeorge W. Bush's presidency, for example, when the White House pleaded with Congress for a bank bailout plan to save free-falling financial markets, Ryan joined the effort to pass the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

Four decades after Broadway Joe Namath brashly predicted the New York Jets would beat the heavily favored Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III -- and then came through on that guarantee -- Rex Ryan's Jets have quietly pushed their own pile of chips to the middle of the table. In an itinerary for his players that somehow was obtained by the media, Ryan had set aside Feb. 9, two days after the Super Bowl, for a celebration through the middle of Manhattan. In a divisional playoff game today, under threatening skies, the San Diego Chargers plan to rain on Ryan's premature parade.

That DreamWorks' publicity department would want to elevate "Saving Private Ryan" to cult status goes without saying. That the L.A. Times would collaborate with them is dismaying and disappointing ("Contending With 'Private Ryan's' Legacy," by Robert W. Welkos, Aug. 5). Much is being made of the film's "grit and reality," when in fact we've seen all the spurting blood, oozing guts, missing limbs and twisted bodies countless times already. They're a staple of action-adventure films and have been ever since Sam Peckinpah first made a fetish of gore.

The GOP's guy? Re "Run, Ryan, run," Opinion, May 24 What a brilliant idea to draft Wisconsin Rep. Paul D. Ryan for the Republican nomination for president. After all, he is responsible for this nonsense about privatizing Medicare to save it. He's like his fellow Republicans, who argue that our national debt demands it while they continue to add to the debt with tax breaks for oil companies and the wealthy. Meanwhile, the middle class will be hit with more taxes as the budget crisis is passed on to state and local governments.

When Army Sgt. Ryan Kahlor returned from two combat tours in Iraq last year, he was a walking billboard for virtually every affliction suffered by today's veterans. He had a detached retina, a ruptured disc, vertigo, headaches, memory lapses and numbness in his arms. Fluid seeped from his ears. He was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. He was violent and suicidal. He carried a loaded handgun everywhere. He drank until he passed out. He cut himself.

Winger Bobby Ryan of the Ducks and the U.S. Olympic team is blogging for The Times during the Games. Here's his post on the U.S. team's 5-3 upset of Canada on Sunday: Hi again, everyone: That was a great game to be part of. To beat Canada in their own barn in front of their own fans was pretty special. It was a pretty quiet building at the end, it was almost eerie. We enjoyed it in the locker room afterward. It's a huge confidence boost for us. As far as the game, I thought we were outplayed for quite a while.

Even a hugely talented class needs a scolding every so often. Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau watched his team slipping, turning a potential blowout against an Eastern Conference minnow into a fast-and-loose game. Fine for pond hockey but not an NHL stretch run. Boudreau called a timeout after the struggling Florida Panthers scored twice and pulled within a goal at the 10:00 mark in the second period and issued some stern reminders. It wasn't quite the Socratic method, but it worked and the Ducks needed 55 seconds after the timeout to score and then cruised, winning, 6-2, on Sunday night at Honda Center.

The Lakers aren't going anywhere this season, and Ryan Kelly might not be either. For Kelly, that would be a good thing. It would mean he's still in the NBA. A late second-round pick out of Duke in last year's draft, the 6-foot-11 power forward wasn't even assured of making the Lakers' roster. The rookie didn't have a full preseason to prove himself because he was still recovering from surgery to repair a screw that was first inserted in his right foot to stabilize a broken bone in March 2012.

Luongo, who played for Florida earlier in his career, found his old Pink Panther-themed mask for just the right note. + Ryan Miller is 4-0 since the Blues acquired him from Buffalo last week, helping St. Louis erase the Ducks' once-commanding lead in the West.

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. -- What happened to Paul Ryan at CPAC should stand as a warning to all politicians who decide to humanize their policy positions with anecdotes: Make sure the story you are telling is real. You will be truth-squadded. You will be flyspecked. And if it turns out you failed to verify a “true” story that seemed too good to be true, or tortured a story to make it fit your larger point, your credibility will take a hit. On Thursday, Ryan stepped into a small mess at Conservative Political Action Conference when he repeated a story about a little boy who preferred a brown-bag lunch from home to a free school lunch.

NATIONAL HARBOR. Md. -- So what were Republican presidential hopefuls telling conservatives Thursday on opening day of the annual CPAC conference? Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz: Washington sucks. Republican U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan: Democrats suck. Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: Everyone but governors sucks. Yes, I paraphrase, but that was pretty much the takeaway from a fairly tamped down beginning to the American Conservative Union's annual three-day ideology fest.

NATIONAL HARBOR, MD - A famous conservative walks into a ballroom …. If he is sticking to tradition, he opens with a joke. Or a story that makes him look good or brave or important. On Thursday, the American Conservative Union hosted a handful of high-profile Republicans at its annual Conservative Political Action Conference, some of whom are eyeing the 2016 Republican presidential race.They came to the Gaylord National Resort just south of Washington, D.C., to fire up the base, boost their profiles with the tea party party wing of the GOP or, in the case of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ( who was pointedly not invited last year after cozying up to President Obama )

Jon Huntsman informed me the other day that I have incurred a moral responsibility. Huntsman is a former GOP governor of Utah and, until recently, President Obama's ambassador to China. Back stateside now, he's joined the throng of Republicans struggling to achieve enough name recognition to attract more than a thimbleful of reporters if and when he announces his candidacy for president. To that end, he issued his moral challenge to me, and to you, in a Wall Street Journal op-ed last week.

That statistic alone is alarming, but at least 149,000 more young people attempt suicide and survive each year. It's this second statistic that Jennifer R. Hubbard humanizes in her young-adult novel "Try Not to Breathe," about a teenage boy struggling to find meaning after attempting to take his own life.

Re "Rep. Ryan calls for cuts in anti-poverty programs," March 4 So Rep. Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) proposes to reduce college Pell grants and child-care and welfare assistance programs. Odd that I didn't see any proposal to tax at ordinary income rates the so-called carried-interest income of hedge fund managers, whose tax-favored earnings frequently run into seven and eight figures. If Ryan's "use your oars to push everyone else away from the life raft" mentality is the economic plan of the GOP, despite the downward economic pressure the middle and lower middle classes have experienced over the last 30 years, I can only hope that the foundering middle class will vote against those who are causing it. And if Republicans think they'll somehow get even with the "takers" by this approach, they might want to remember that eight of the 10 states with the highest percentage of people who paid no federal income taxes in 2010 were red states in 2012.

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.--The potential choice facing voters in the next Republican presidential race was on full display Thursday at the kickoff of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, where Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan offered conservative activists their vision for the way forward. In a polished speech, Cruz, the headline-grabbing Texas senator, offered his familiar call for conservatives to hold true to their principles at a time when liberty was "under assault. " Republicans who've strayed from that course have failed to win for a reason, he said.
