One of the expected story lines for Sunday's NFL games was whether God-loving quarterback Tim Tebow would pull out a late victory again. He didn't. An unexpected plot twist was the presence in Denver of Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, catching a game on his first weekend back from Asia. Getty Images photographed Villaraigosa on the sidelines with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, left, and Patriots owner Robert Kraft. I suppose the mayor could be there talking to the league about providing a team for AEG's Downtown Los Angeles stadium. That begs the question of who paid for the mayor's flight and expenses, and did the league credential Villaraigosa in or did he have a ticket (and if so, who paid for that.) Villaraigosa's official schedule listed no public events for Sunday, but he's due back Monday for a 9:30 a.m. presser in Hollywood.

Meanwhile back home: Police Protective League president Paul Weber says tonight the death of a pedestrian Saturday at the hands of an unlicensed driver in Panorama City shows how the mayor’s push to stop impounding the cars of drivers without licenses "can result in innocent people being injured and killed."
