Two-time champion Chad Reed held off rookie Ken Roczen of Murrieta to win his second supercross race of the season Saturday night at Angel Stadium. This was the third and final season stop in Anaheim for the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series, and Reed also won at Angel Stadium two weeks ago. Roczen won the first Anaheim race Jan. 4, which opened the series' season. Supercross is the stadium version of off-road motorcycle racing, or motocross. On Saturday, Reed passed reigning champion Ryan Villopoto on the first lap of the 20-lap main event, then spent the rest of the race keep Roczen at bay. Roczen was able to get his KTM motorcycle alongside Reed's Kawasaki on the 10th lap, but Reed, 31, never relinquished the lead.

Planning a Super Bowl party and wondering how to lay out the spread? Get creative and build a stadium out of food! It takes a little planning, but a food stadium can be loads of fun to build, and you can scale it to suit the size of your party. Planning a large crowd? Build a massive stadium with all sorts of snacks, simple main dishes, and even desserts. If you're limiting the gang, have fun stacking a few items around a favorite dip or spread. PHOTOS: Tips for building your own food football stadium In the video at the top, I describe how to build a stadium of snacks for the big game (and deputy Food Editor Betty Hallock walks you through an amazing game day cocktail)

The supercross series is set to make its third and final season stop at Angel Stadium on Saturday night with reigning champion Ryan Villopoto again atop the point standings. Rookie Ken Roczen of Murrieta won the season opener at Angel Stadium in early January, and Villopoto won the next race in Phoenix. Chad Reed then won the second Anaheim race of the season Jan. 18 and Villopoto won his second race of the year last weekend in Oakland. Villopoto, a Kawasaki rider who is seeking his fourth consecutive Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series championship, now leads the title standings by seven points over Reed and by nine points over Roczen.

NEW YORK - When her team, the Seattle Seahawks, made it to the Super Bowl, Mabel Chan knew she was going to travel to the East Coast to cheer them to victory. "It's the Super Bowl! In New York City!" she said recently, standing in a crowded New York street a few feet from where fellow tourists screamed as they slid down a giant toboggan slide that had been erected earlier in the week. It's not a statement that would exactly warm the cockles of the hearts of New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker or the state's other politicians.

The owner of the St. Louis Rams has bought a large piece of land in Inglewood that potentially could be used for an NFL stadium, multiple individuals with knowledge of the transaction have told The Times. Within the last month, billionaire Stan Kroenke bought a 60-acre parking lot located between the Forum and Hollywood Park, according to individuals who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak on behalf of the buyer or seller. Wal-Mart originally owned the land but sold it after failing to get public approval for a superstore.

Will the Dodger Stadium hangover merely be a 72-hour condition or can the Ducks manage to shake the malaise before it lingers? The Ducks started slowly, and sloppily, not showing the necessary urgency until falling behind by three goals in the third period. Their offensive verve eventually showed up - as expected - but it was that age-old story of a too late arrival. The Wild protected the lead and held on to beat Anaheim, 4-2, on Tuesday night at Honda Center. It was only the second time the Ducks have lost in regulation at home this season, the first time was a 3-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Jan 21. Minnesota star Zach Parise, playing in his third game since returning from a foot injury, had a hand in three of the four goals, recording two assists and scoring on a nifty deflection to make it 3-1 at 6:35 of the third period.

The bizarre mingled with the familiar Saturday night, when the sensory overload of seeing beach volleyball, street hockey and Frisbee tossing taking place amid Dodger Stadium's greenery was balanced by seven concise words that set a sellout crowd to roaring. "And now it's time," Vin Scully said, his voice vibrating as he paused for dramatic effect, "for NHL hockey!" And so it was, with Wayne Gretzky dropping the puck between the Kings and Ducks for the first NHL regular-season outdoor game played in California.

Lessons learned Saturday from the Ducks' 3-0 victory over the Kings at Dodger Stadium: -- It's possible to play an NHL game outdoors in Southern California without the ice turning into a swimming pool. -- The Kings, who have struggled to score goals indoors, can't score outdoors, either. The event was a roaring success, though it could have benefited from less volume on the constant, deafening music played during stoppages and less pregame activity around the rink. Beach volleyball and soccer and Frisbee and yoga and bands playing and street hockey?

An iconic home of home runs and saves neatly morphed into hockey's temporary home on a historic January night at Dodger Stadium. Of course, the startling transformation was not clever Hollywood sleight-of-hand but the guiding hand and mind of NHL ice guru Dan Craig. Home runs may have gotten the night off but there were plenty of saves from Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller, who stopped 36 shots as the Ducks beat the Kings, 3-0. Hiller has four shutouts this season; this one was the 20th of his career.

If the rink set up at Dodger Stadium wasn't their childhood field of dreams, it was surrounded by attractions the Kings and Ducks never saw in Saskatchewan or Finland: palm trees, a beach volleyball court, and a rich baseball history. Wearing eyeblack on their cheeks and smiles on their faces, the teams took to the great outdoors Friday to practice for Saturday's Stadium Series game. The Kings skated at 4 p.m., when the temperature was about 67 degrees, and said the ice was mushy in a few spots but not much different from what they normally find indoors.
