Super Bowl Sunday. Three little words that make even girlie girls want to block out some time on a Sunday to watch grown men in body armor barrel into each other like animals. But you can’t watch it at home if you want to really get your blood up with the crowd. Besides, we know most of you weren’t invited to Leigh Steinberg’s shindig in Tampa.

Sunday, April 20th - Novice bowlers from the Newport Harbor Lawn Bowling Club teamed up with Veteran bowlers from Newport and other clubs in the area to form 14 teams of triples.

The veteran dealer, who has operated a warehouse in Los Angeles for 15 years and opened a boutique shop in Corona del Mar this month, offers a number of classic pieces in their original form, but just as often, he takes vintage materials and crafts them into something new. Peruse his shop on East Coast Highway and you’ll find an old European children’s game where players attempt to toss coins into a frog’s mouth, 19th-century Greek olive jars, religious statues and other eye-catching antiques.

Orange Coast College soccer coach and NFL referee Laird Hayes was interpreting officials? calls during the Super Bowl Sunday, he just wasn?t doing it in front of millions of people.

The league examines the top three officials from each position, and the one with the fewest Super Bowls gets the nod. ?I?m the only side judge with two,?
