LASH Morning Drive: Friday, July 11

The Morning Drive offers you a healthy dose of LA sports talk from around the internet. A most excellent way to wake up feeling smart.

In today’s morning drive Donald skips court, ‘Melo and LeBron are still mum and Clayton Kershaw’s scoreless innings streak ends (in a complete game win). Happy Friday, Los Angeles. You deserve it.

 

Good Friday Quote of the Day, to start your Friday off right

“People are surprised at how down-to-earth I am. I like to stay home on Friday nights and listen to ‘The Art of Happiness’ by the Dalai Lama.”

-Carmen Electra
