The magnitude 6.9 earthquake that rattled Northern California on Sunday was the state's largest temblor in nearly a decade. But it caused no damage or injuries. That's because the quake was centered 50 miles off the coast of Eureka and occurred at a depth of "10 miles beneath the Pacific seabed," according to the U.S. Geological Survey. By the time the seismic energy reached the shore, it had dissipated significantly. The USGS said the North Coast felt only moderate to light shaking.

LAS VEGASĀ  - "I love coming back here," Jimmie Johnson said of Las Vegas, but it's not to gamble or take in a show. "Vegas is fun but it's really, just in my mind, a racing town," he said. And Johnson, the reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup champion, might as well be its honorary mayor. As he seeks a record-tying seventh Cup title this year, Johnson already holds the record for most Cup wins at Las Vegas Motor Speedway with four. Yet, he has had something of a drought at the 1.5-mile oval located 15 miles northeast of the Strip.

Derek Fisher made what may have been his last appearance on the Lakers' home floor at Staples Center, playing with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday afternoon in a 114-110 loss to the home team. Fisher, in his 18th season, has vowed to retire after the 2013-14 campaign. "He's talked about retiring," said Thunder Coach Scott Brooks on Sunday. "I've heard [our players] are planning on talking to him. Fisher can still play a few more years if he wants to play. " "It's not, 'If I can't,'" said Fisher after the game, acknowledging this was probably his last year.

When: Noon. Where: StubHub Center. On the air: TV: Unimas; Radio: 1330. Records (2013): Chivas USA 6-20-8, Fire 14-13-7. Record vs. Fire (2013): 1-0. Update: Chivas USA goes into a new season with new owners, new hope and 12 new players. All that translated into an unbeaten preseason but the team starts with a clean slate Sunday against a Chicago Fire squad that just missed the playoffs last fall. Sunday's game will mark a homecoming of sorts for the Fire's Mike Magee, the reigning MLS MVP and a longtime fan favorite with the Galaxy who hasn't played here since being traded to Chicago 10 months ago. Magee is likely to play some minutes but he may not start Sunday.
