When Ned Lyon arrived for the fall semester at Oregon, there was something gnawing at him. Call it regret. But it was something urging him to try the game he left behind at Newport Harbor High. He hated how his final football season with the Sailors ended. They won their last game, but they missed the playoffs after a bizarre process to determine postseason berths among five teams in the Sunset League. White-out bottles were picked out of a wooden bucket and Newport Harbor missed the playoffs.

Nelly the pig may soon give Babe a run for his money. Her owners call her the smartest pig in the world, and Wednesday she stole the show at the Livestock Area of the Orange County Fair. Nelly has been featured on Animal Planet, the “Today Show,” the “Late Show with David Letterman,” and various nightly news programs. Wednesday, she proved to be quite the athlete. With the aid of her catapult, she played catch with one of the audience members. She later used her snout to play golf, and to push a bowling ball into a cluster of pins.

The first weekend of January, USC and Alamitos Bay Yacht Club hosted the Rose Bowl Regatta in Long Beach. As is common for Southern California events, both Saturday and Sunday were very light breeze and racing started later in the day. Mike Segerblom, USC coach and race committee compromised by racing through late afternoon completing a total of nine races in each division, making it a solid event. Boston College took first place with MIT and Georgetown in a close 2nd and 3rd. On the high school scene, Point Loma won followed by Newport Harbor and Santa Barbara.

As Tampa gears up for today’s kickoff, Newport-Mesa has plenty of ties to the NFL, from superstar sports agent Leigh Steinberg to Paul Salata, who bestows the “Mister Irrelevant” title on the last draft pick every year. But back at home, the real action on Super Sunday is at the numerous parties that spring up every year to celebrate the big game. Of them all, the largest is put on by Costa Mesa resident Chuck Cassity, whose local bashes feature chili, hot dogs, sushi, pool betting and more than 300 people.

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. Well, fortunately, in Newport Beach there’s Rudy’s Pub & Grill where you can wave your Terrible Towel or, uh, I don’t know, tweet like a Cardinal or something.
