Angeleno of the Week: Sporting Life Edition
Consider it the sports edition of Angeleno of the Week. Not exactly a good week for Marion Jones, the Trojans or the Bruins. Of course, USC and UCLA will recover -- OK, perhaps not this season, but they'll recover. Jones? Not so much. The jail-bound Olympic Gold Medalist (er, soon-to-be-former Olympic Gold Medalist) swore up and down that she didn't dope up, expressing plenty of righteous indignation when anyone made the allegation. Now, in admitting that she lied, Jones has already harmed the sport, and permanently ruined her rep.
L.A. native Marion Jones, you're our Angeleno of the Week!
