There are frequent fliers, and then there are people like Steven Rothstein and Jacques Vroom. Both men bought tickets that gave them unlimited first-class travel for life on American Airlines. It was almost like owning a fleet of private jets. Passes in hand, Rothstein and Vroom flew for business. They flew for pleasure. They flew just because they liked being on planes. They bypassed long lines, booked backup itineraries in case the weather turned, and never worried about cancellation fees.

RICHMOND - For sheer memorability, the Toyota Owners 400 earned its place on the list of unforgettable Sprint Cup Series races at Richmond International Raceway. Crazy start. Twenty lead changes. Multiple car fires. Great beat-and-bang finish. The 400-lap, 300-mile race never failed to offer the kind of Saturday night short-track atmosphere so many fans crave, and even threw in a good fistfight afterward. Joey Logano emerged victorious in a multi-car battle for the checkered flag over the final laps, with Jeff Gordon second, Kyle Busch third, Brad Keselowski fourth and Matt Kenseth fifth.

We're at the point where any San Diego Chargers victory can be summarized in two words. This goes back to Nov. 19, when between updates I saw a 24-7 San Diego deficit against Denver turn into a 35-27 Chargers victory and I text-messaged a friend to ask what happened. My buddy's reply: "LT happened." Flash-forward to Sunday, when the Chargers had to deal with a strong Oakland Raiders defensive effort, a shaky performance by quarterback Philip Rivers and a 14-7 Raiders lead in the fourth quarter.

Olympic sprint champion Florence Griffith Joyner died after suffering an epileptic seizure, according to autopsy results released Thursday, and her family and friends say they hope the findings will put to rest rumors that drug use contributed to her death. Griffith Joyner died last month in her sleep at age 38. Her husband, Al Joyner, bitterly criticized those who suggested that she took performance-enhancing drugs.

"E ntertainment Tonight" will air its 2,000th show on Friday. Although thumped by critics since it debuted on Sept. 14, 1981, the syndicated program has survived. Entertainment reporters are now as common on TV as weather reporters, in part because of "ET," which has remained television's leading news show devoted solely to the entertainment industry. Last September, at the start of its eighth season, "ET" introduced a new format, with glitzier graphics, strobe-light pacing and two new features--its opening Inside Story and the ET Insider, a gossip-column-style commentary by co-star John Tesh.

Before the two best-actor Oscars, the hit movies and other distinguished projects that catapulted him into Hollywood's elite ranks, Tom Hanks was an un-pretty woman. In 1980, Hanks got one of his first breaks with "Bosom Buddies," an ABC show in which he and Peter Scolari played bachelor ad men who move into an all-female apartment house after their building is condemned. The actors donned wigs, bras, pantyhose, wigs and skirts as they hung out with their neighbors, including a blond bombshell (Donna Dixon)

With his hair tousled and aviator sunglasses resting on a table, Matt Bristol seemed like your typical Angeleno on a recent afternoon for lunch in Brentwood.  But Bristol is a cast member on the TLC series “Breaking Amish: Los Angeles,” which dropped him in Venice Beach, a long way - literally and figuratively - from his home in Lancaster County, Penn., where he lives as a Mennonite. “Breaking Amish: Los Angeles” premiered on July 21 to about 2 million viewers. The series is a spinoff from "Breaking Amish: New York,” which followed five young adults (four Amish, one Mennonite)

After a year and a half absence, Vincent D'Onofrio, 51, returns to "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" as the brilliant but troubled detective Robert Goren for the show's 10th season, which debuts May 1 on the USA Network. I like your character, Det. Goren, but he seems to get a mixed reaction. I think some people don't get him. It's always been like that. I think that's OK. It's not for everybody, especially the way I play him is not to everybody's taste. People, I think, unless they allow themselves to take the leap of faith, they don't like the intelligence, the ridiculous amount of knowledge he has. It doesn't make it easy in a 40-minute show to solve a crime [persuasively]

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival may have wrapped up last week, but still unfurling in Coachella's Pueblo Viejo District is an ambitious project that has brought together about a dozen muralists and international contemporary artists. "Coachella Walls," which has no formal connection to the Goldenvoice-produced festival, is billed as an "arts-driven community revitalization project. " Its organizers are Coachella-based Date Farmers Art Studios, a.k.a., the artists Armando Lerma and Carlos Ramirez, who grew up in the area and now show their work at Ace Gallery in Los Angeles.

NEW YORK - John Oliver will have the crab cakes - but that's all, thanks. In a private dining room at HBO's plush headquarters overlooking Bryant Park in midtown Manhattan, a waitress in a crisp black uniform asks the 37-year-old comedian if he'd like anything else - perhaps some soup or salad? He declines with a polite insistence that suggests he's not quite used to all the luxurious trappings. Then, as soon as the waitress leaves the room, he launches into a riff about possibly sinister deeds going on behind the scenes at HBO. "I don't know what happens here," he says, "This is, like, unsettlingly nice.

The Libertines have reunited, and for the most Pete Doherty-ish reason possible. The acclaimed but troubled English rock band will perform in London's Hyde Park on July 5. The group had previously reunited for a festival run in 2010 but had not released a new album in over a decade. Before the formal announcement, frontman Doherty told the Israeli paper Ynet  ( via Pitchfork ) that the group had accepted an offer to play the show. Spiritualized and the Pogues will open.

One, two, three. One, two, three. One, two, three. Down batters went as Clayton Kershaw pitched for the Class-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on Friday night as part of his effort to return from a back injury that put him on the disabled list for the first time in his career. The Dodgers pitcher said after his appearance that he "felt good, felt healthy" and that he was "ready to go. " His only hiccup came in the fifth inning - the final one he pitched - when he gave up a solo home run to the first batter he faced, Carlos Perdomo of the Lancaster Jethawks.

Terry Bradshaw has a loyal following in Pittsburgh. I don't know. Something about winning four Super Bowls with some team called the Steelers. So who better than the blond bomber to kick off a summer concert series June 14 that also features Motown legend Smokey Robinson and old-school favorites the Oak Ridge Boys and 38 Special at the Meadows Casino in Washington, Pa., about 30 minutes outside of the Steel City? Sounds great. He can just stand there and tell football anecdotes while laying on that down-home charm that has made him a favorite during Fox's football coverage all these years.

Elon Musk, founder and chief executive of Hawthorne rocket maker SpaceX, hastily called a news conference Friday in Washington, D.C., where he outlined an array of matters confronting his upstart company. A cryptic email was sent to media around 9 p.m. Pacific time Thursday that said he would "make an important SpaceX announcement" the next day at the National Press Club. The big announcement, however, wasn't quite clear. Musk made several revelations during the half-hour event. First, he provided an update on SpaceX's goal of creating the world's first fully reusable rocket - the holy grail in rocketry.

Michael Nesmith's name is far more often associated with the Monkees than the birth of Southern California country rock. Yet the former rock sitcom star played a key part in a 1960s scene when long hair and cowboy boots all a sudden made sense together. Nesmith blended rock and country music alongside artists such as Linda Ronstadt and Gram Parsons. Much of it happened at the Troubadour, where the hybrid sound was taking shape. "Linda would come play, the Dillards, [Roger] McGuinn would come play, [David]
