When I posed the question – What does it mean for you to have the All-Star game here? – to Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Rod Carew, I thought for a brief moment that I could answer it. I could have dozens of microphones and tape recorders in front of me amid cameras flashing and video cameras recording my every word. But just for one moment. I thought it could happen at the MLB All-Star FanFest in Anaheim. I took the media hard-hat tour Thursday and removed my sports editor label to become a fan. Across the street from Disneyland, a baseball carnival is taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center.

They rarely get to go back and actually recreate moments from their past, especially in front of 15,000 spectators. Costa Mesa resident Garrison Kean got to do just that, along with 285 other members of the Kingsmen Alumni Drum and Bugle Corps when the group performed at the 35th annual Drum Corps International World Championships at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena in August.

If you had asked UC Irvine men?s basketball coach Pat Douglass at the beginning of the season if he?d take three wins this season at the Anaheim Convention Center, he probably would have passed. But after four defeats in four tries at the glorified television studio in which the Anteaters will ultimately make or break their season in the Big West Conferernce Tournament in March, Douglass would now love to earn the two or three wins necessary to propel the Anteaters to the program?

ANAHEIM — The UC Irvine men’s basketball team was so good for 30-plus minutes Friday, it forced Tennessee at Chattanooga Coach John Shulman to throw up his hands. Frustrated at not having come up with a defensive scheme to stop the Anteaters to that point, Shulman ordered a half-court trap that, in effect, forced his players to throw their hands into the passing lanes. As it turned out, this was a devastating chain of events for UCI, which saw a 71-59 lead with 8:44 left, turn into an 85-80 loss to the Mocs (2-2)

But one change the Bulldogs found to their liking in a 68-53 triumph over UC Irvine at the Anaheim Convention Center was a previously untapped rate of exchange.
