Los Angeles will go crazy today and tonight. Hope the police are ready for overtime. 

Mexico just destroyed France in the World Cup. The last time Mexico made the knockout round, traffic was tied up all over town. And the police didn't even see it coming.

They were totally unprepared and the city came to a grinding halt as Mexican fans poured out on the streets and blocked traffic everywhere.

Now, sports fans here in the City of Angels are already drinking toasts while getting ready for tonight's Laker Game.

Last year's Lakers victory celebration was tame. But in the past, cars have been turned over and trees and dumpsters set on fire.

Fact is, if the Lakers win, which I think they will, I would leave the car in the garage.

The song may have said "Nobody walks in LA." But tonight, all the smart people will be doing just that.

It's great day for sports in the Southland.

Celebrate safe!
