Remember when you were a kid, and would throw things at your siblings or friends, and your  mom would say, "Stop throwing things at people before you lose the right to play in a bowl game?" Well, Oregon tight end Pharaoh Brown must not have been listening. Brown was suspended from playing in the Alamo Bowl for his role in a snowball fight that turned ugly, the school announced Monday. Oregon plays Texas in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30. Brown was among a group of nearly 100 students hitting cars and drivers with snowballs on campus Friday.

Andrew McCutchen envisioned telling the world how much he loved his girlfriend from the top of the highest mountain. He also thought he might do it with a voice as loud as a lion's roar ... times a billion! Now that's loud. When those two options apparently didn't work out, the Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder and newly crowned National League MVP got some help from Ellen DeGeneres, who let him proclaim his love for Maria Hanslovan on her daytime talk show Wednesday. video platform video management video solutions video player "I didn't do any of this for the publicity.

There were no reports of serious injuries. Police said they questioned four black youths but made no arrests.

Doc Rivers is returning to the site of his most glorious moments as an NBA coach. Rivers is bringing his new team, the Los Angeles Clippers, to face his old team, the Boston Celtics, a team he led to an NBA championship in 2008 and back to the NBA Finals in 2010. He spent nine years with the Celtics before he bolted Boston in June rather than stick around for a rebuilding project, joining the Clippers in Los Angeles instead to become the coach and senior vice president of basketball operations.

Felony assault charges against a Washington State linebacker were dropped after three witnesses testified that he was defending himself when he struck another student during a snowball fight. Whitman County chief deputy prosecutor Ron Shirley moved to dismiss the second-degree assault charges Thursday after testimony indicated that Anthony McClanahan apparently was defending himself during the Jan. 19, 1990, snowball fight.

reporting from new orleans I drive alongside the grassy slope of the Mississippi River levee and turn east at Magazine Street, traveling past Audubon Zoo toward downtown. It's a narrow, bumpy street shaded by giant oaks, their roots upending great chunks of sidewalk. But nobody seems to mind. This is New Orleans. I'm on a quest to find the best snowball in a city filled with stands. Don't mistake a snowball for a snow cone. The former is soft like powder snow, the latter crunchy like hard pack.

The call went out on a website and over Twitter, and hundreds of 20- and 30-somethings, tired of being cooped up, gathered in Washington's northwest quadrant Saturday for a little restless indulgence. Snowball fight! People squealed as they hurled balls of snow across the largely deserted road. Then, a snowball or two slammed into a Hummer. The driver, a plainclothes police detective whom Washington police refused to identify, got out, drew his gun and exchanged angry words with revelers, according to video footage and witnesses.

Mom: "OK, let's go. Time to try something different - we're going snowshoeing this afternoon. " Teenager 1: "Huh? Why?" Teenager 2: "I'm not walking on waffle feet, no. " Mom: "Great, here we go. " Surprise! Snowshoeing is actually fun. Good, inexpensive, diversionary fun. If you have kids, you've been there too. Despite excellent early-season snow (it was mid-November) and some great mornings boarding and skiing on the half-dozen open lifts at Mammoth (followed by substantial portions of home-cooked meals shoveled into waiting jaws)

Even Angelenos get the winter blues. Though not plagued by the chapped hands, frozen toes and cabin fever that torment those living in more seasonal climates, we have our issues. That weird itchy winter heat, those smoky days when the sky looks like a dirty nickel and the air is full of static, the cold Santa Ana winds. Some people can pull themselves out of a seasonal rut through willpower and positive self-direction. My family needs to get out of town.
