On the scene at South Bend

I've heard from a surprising number of LA Observed readers who traveled to Indiana to watch UCLA almost beat Notre Dame last weekend. At The Griddle, Bob Timmermann takes time off from blogging about the World Series and the Japan Series (he also watched games there this month) to report from the stadium:

Not counting trips to the Coliseum to see USC games, I've only seen UCLA play on the road four times. Once against BYU at the Freedom Bowl in Anaheim, twice at Berkeley, and once at Stanford. In general, UCLA fans don't travel anywhere. They don't like to travel to Pasadena for home games. But UCLA sold out its full allotment of 5,000 tickets and there were likely a few more thousand than that squeezed into the 80,000 or so people at Notre Dame Stadium. It was quite a sight. Even the band made the trip.

The news that union organizers are signing up workers at the Los Angeles Times, once a fierce anti-union bastion, is a fascinating footnote to the history of a city once dominated by the paper.
