Perfect storm of sports

Take a look at the schedule of live events that will be in town this Saturday, courtesy of Bob Timmermann at The Griddle. Washington vs. USC at the Coliseum at 12:30 pm, Arizona visits UCLA at the Rose Bowl at 4, the Kings open their home season at Staples Center against the St. Louis Blues at 7:30 and the Dodgers bring the National League playoffs to the stadium at a time to be determined. Timmermann estimates a total crowd of about 225,000 for the day's games. There's also racing at Santa Anita and Los Alamitos if you count that. The soccer teams are out of town.
