Clippers Announcer Misses Game Due To Traffic

I’m sure you’ve heard stories about how bad traffic is in Southern California.

(As a Los Angeleno, I can tell you it’s all true.)

Los Angeles Clippers play-by-play announcer Ralph Lawler fell victim to the traffic on Wednesday night, missing a rare Clippers victory as a result.

A series of fatal accidents on Interstate 10 made the freeway a standstill, making it impossible for Lawler to make it to Staples Center in time.

In case you’re wondering why Lawler couldn’t take the streets to work – he lives in La Quinta, Calif., 135 miles east of Staples Center.

You have to really love the Clippers to commute two hours each way for work.
