LASH Morning Drive: Tuesday, July 22

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 the Dodgers get good news on Hanley and Puig, a Bruins staffer gets caught up in kiddy porn charges, and Donald Sterling has a whole lot of debt. Happy Tuesday, Los Angeles. You deserve it.

 

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

“TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY. Not true. Today is another day. We have no idea what tomorrow is going to be. It might turn out to be another day, but we can’t be sure. If it happens, I’ll be the first to say so. But, you know what? By that time, it’ll be today again”
―George Carlin
