WASHINGTON - President Obama chose not to attend this year's NAACP convention because of “scheduling” issues, aides said, explaining it was not because he did not want to appear before the nation's most respected civil rights organization. The president spoke to the convention in 2009, Michelle Obama addressed the group in 2010 and Obama met with the association's president, Benjamin Jealous, in the White House last year. This week, Vice President Joe Biden will represent the White House as the association meets in Houston.

Don't look for the union label around USC's or UCLA's football practice facilities any time soon. Football players at both schools are aware that Northwestern players might unionize. But when asked about the issue recently during spring practice, several said they were only casually monitoring the situation. "There has been some small talk around the locker room," said UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley. "We'll get a lot more information. Obviously, they are starting something. " Northwestern players will vote Friday on whether to unionize.

The NFL released its 2014 schedule Wednesday evening, revealing that Seattle will play host to Green Bay in the Thursday kickoff opener. That's a rematch of the controversial “Fail Mary” game in 2012, when replacement officials awarded the Seahawks the winning touchdown on a Hail Mary throw that appeared to be intercepted in the end zone by Green Bay. In Week 3, Seattle plays host to Denver, the team it beat in Super Bowl XLVIII in February....

The ball teetered on the lip of the 16th hole at Augusta National Golf Club. It was 2005, and after Tiger Woods' now-famous chip shot fell in for a birdie and Woods went on to win the Masters for the fourth time, Jim Michaelian made a decision. With Woods' popularity and Tiger-driven television ratings soaring, Michaelian was convinced that the annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach should not be run on the same day that the winner of a golf major was being fitted for a green jacket.

The Hollywood Palladium concert scheduled for Friday featuring the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Trouble Funk has been canceled. A spokesman for the promoter, Avalon Attractions, said Wednesday that the cancellation was due to scheduling conflicts and had nothing to do with the violence at rap group Run-D.M.C.'s recent Long Beach Arena concert. Trouble Funk, a leading group in Washington's "go go" black music scene, is still scheduled to play Bogart's nightclub in Long Beach on Monday.

The television networks will set their fall prime-time lineups later this month, a ritual shrouded in mystery and even a touch of mythology. Small wonder that interest has grown in pulling back the curtain, exposing the great and powerful wizards who--through divination, focus group research and corporate back-scratching--decide what shows live, what shows die and which fans end up wailing about the injustice of it all on the Internet. Unfortunately, these days much of the juicy, rough-and-tumble part of scheduling has been drummed out of the process.

I'm sick to death of all the biased comments aimed against the UCLA football program. The reason UCLA schedules San Diego State and Cal State Long Beach is that there is a lot of regional interest in such contests, which in addition, provide a nice monetary purse, as well as much-needed exposure to two programs that are on the way up. In the next three years, the Bruins are scheduled to play such teams as Michigan, Tennessee, Brigham Young...

There's another basketball league as disjointed as the NBA these days. The Italian pro league might lose a chance at Kobe Bryant because some of its teams won't rearrange the schedule to create more games at the start of the season for Bryant's possible new team, Virtus Bologna. Friday marked a day of boasting and then backtracking for the Italian club, which declared with near certainty that it locked up Bryant with a 10-game, $3.2-million deal only to post an ominous, defensive statement on its website later in the day. "With great surprise, Virtus Basketball notes that, due to the negative view of some clubs, it's not possible to go forward with the 10-game agreement, therefore putting in serious doubt the economic deal behind the plan to bring Kobe Bryant to Italy," the statement said.

The next step in the return of Clayton Kershaw is at hand. Kershaw will make his first rehab appearance on Friday for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga. He has been on the the disabled list since March 30 with a strained upper back muscle. Kershaw, the reigning National League Cy Young winner, has made only one start this season, throwing the opener in Australia, before he went to the DL for the first time in his career. Manager Don Mattingly said Kershaw would need more than just one rehab start before rejoining the rotation.

NASCAR was off last week for Easter break and that got former Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski thinking about the series' schedule. So in hopes of sparking a fresh conversation about the schedule, the Team Penske driver designed his own "dream" calendar that he outlined on his blog (bradracing.com). Keselowski said he was "not trying to disrespect any of the parties" currently involved in compiling the schedule. "This is just my attempt to tackle the schedule in a way that sounds fun to me, and gets everyone talking about how we might improve things," he wrote on the blog.

Progress sometimes may come in small increments, but it still makes for progress. And the good news is that Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is making progress. Kershaw has been on the disabled list since March 30 because of a strain on a back muscle. Kershaw has been on a throwing program since suffering the injury, apparently in his Australia start, but Sunday he is scheduled to face hitters in a simulated game. “That's good news, that he's going in the right direction,” Manager Don Mattingly said.

Maybe someone soon will blink in the NBA's lockout of players. If there is a settlement, some contend that the season could be extended and playoffs perhaps stretched into July to accommodate a full 82-game schedule. Finding a place to play, however, might be more difficult. "I've heard talk that the players and owners would look to add games past the drop-dead date of the NBA Finals, June 21 — I know they are tinkering with that," said Lee Zeidman, general manager of Staples Center, home to the Lakers and Clippers.

Don Mattingly didn't have to come to the ballpark Monday, so the Dodgers manager said he got his hair cut, inflated the tires on his bicycle and, basically, took the evening off. "A lot of nothing," he said with a smile. "It was productive. " That remains to be seen. Because for players accustomed to playing every day over a six-month schedule, the start to the Dodgers' season has been a whole lot of nothing. BOX SCORE: Dodgers 3, Tigers 2 (10) Monday's off day was the third in eight days for the Dodgers, who get two more days off over the next week.

Eleven months and one unusual surgery later, it's the return of Josh Beckett. Barring something unexpected, Beckett will make his season debut Wednesday night against the Detroit Tigers. No small order -- he is essentially replacing Clayton Kershaw in the rotation. “He looks like the guy,” said Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly. Beckett has seen his comeback from summer surgery to remove a rib that was pressuring a nerve and causing finger numbness pushed back by a pair of recent injuries.
