SEATTLE - John Anderson has discovered just about everything during the 30 years he has combed Washington state's beaches - glass fishing floats, hockey gloves, bottled messages, even hundreds of mismatched pairs of Nike sneakers that washed up barnacled but unworn. The biggest haul may come in one to three years when, scientists say, wind and ocean currents eventually push some of the massive debris from Japan's tsunami and earthquake onto the shores of the U.S. West Coast. "I'm fascinated to see what actually makes it over here, compared to what might sink or biodegrade out there," said Anderson, 57, a plumber and avid beachcomber who lives in coastal Forks, Wash.

LOS ANGELES - Soon after the lunch plates stopped rattling and books stopped thumping to the floor, shaken Easterners could hear another sound from Tuesday's quake: the sound of snickering emanating from the opposite side of the continent. "East coast quake is now a 5.9. Californians yawn, shrug and go back to their iced lattes," Marcus Beer, who reviews video games for a local news broadcaster, tweeted. All the more laughable for some were the images of people fleeing buildings - the exact opposite of what you're supposed to do in a quake.

I see her as I step out from among the sea grape trees and onto the golden sands: tanned, blond, and bikini-clad, she is walking toward me. And she possesses the one thing I'm yearning to see in a woman on the beach: a little kid. I'm in Rincon, on the west coast of Puerto Rico, with my 3-year-old son, Kai - just the two of us, for six days - and my best hope for doing anything besides parenting lies in other people's children. If I can find playmates for Kai, I might sneak in a surf session, a jog, or some uninterrupted reading.

THE UNION cannot seem to find its groove at home this season. It has won only once at PPL Park, and the Sons of Ben voiced their displeasure during the previous two home games. Fortunately for the Union, it will not even play on the East Coast for about 2 weeks. They play the Galaxy at Los Angeles on Sunday and Chivas USA at suburban Carson the following Saturday. The team will stay in LA in between games, because it makes sense logistically. "We take this as an opportunity," manager John Hackworth said.

West Chester-based TV and Web retailer QVC will open its first West Coast distribution center at a 1.1 million-square-foot facility in Ontario, Calif., according to commercial real estate services firm CBRE, which brokered the lease. QVC will occupy the largest of seven buildings at a warehouse complex being developed in the inland Southern California city by owner Sares-Regis Group, CBRE said in a release Wednesday. CBRE spokeswoman Kelly Conaway declined to discuss the lease's term or financial details.

PHILLY-BORN AND -RAISED comedian Craig Shoemaker is retiring from the stage for good. But for his next trick, he'll bring a little Philly to the West Coast. "I've decided to say goodbye to my stand-up career and move on to more purposeful things," Shoemaker said. Before he says goodbye to the bright lights once and for all, Shoemaker will play two shows (one is sold out) at the Sellersville Theater on Saturday. So what are these purposeful things Shoemaker speaks of? The L.A.-based comic will open three locations of Tony Luke's in Southern California.

PORTLAND, Ore. - With a game here Monday night to start the season, another one in Phoenix on Wednesday and then back-to-back games Friday and Saturday at Salt Lake City and Golden State - and all of this on the heels of a lockout - the Sixers already have enough on their plates to be concerned about. Sixers coach Doug Collins said that normally starting the season on a West Coast road trip wouldn't be anything unusual. However, beginning it during the Christmas holiday adds a variable that Collins doesn't quite know how his team will deal with.

We called it a "Tourcation" and headed west. I recently graduated from Temple University and wanted to do some kind of trip. Doesn't every college student want to escape after "Pomp and Circumstance?" I also wanted to play music somewhere. My sister and I play in the drum and keys duo Baa Ram Ewe. Given our musical abilities, we decided, "Why not combine a vacation and a music tour?" Ever since I went to Southern California on a family trip in 2004, I have been enamored with the West Coast.

Nate Dogg, 41, a singer whose near monotone crooning anchored some of rap's most seminal songs and helped define the sound of West Coast hip-hop, died Tuesday in Los Angeles of complications from multiple strokes he had suffered in recent years. Nate Dogg wasn't a rapper, but he was an integral figure in the genre: His deep voice wasn't particularly melodic, but its tone - at times menacing, at times playful, yet always charming - provided just the right touch on hits including Warren G's "Regulate," 50 Cent's "21 Questions," Dr. Dre's "The Next Episode," and countless others.

LOS ANGELES - Baseball players are a different breed, a product mostly of the grueling 162-game season. Superstitions permeate the clubhouse throughout the season. A 10-game West Coast trip is the perfect setting for zaniness. So that's how a reggae version of the famous "Rubber Duckie" song from Sesame Street has become a mainstay on the pregame music playlist in the Phillies clubhouse. Roy Oswalt used strength and conditioning coordinator Dong Lien's iPod one day in San Francisco and stumbled upon the song, which is a favorite of Lien's daughter.

SALT LAKE CITY - What changed? What happened? At the start of the season, 76ers coach Brett Brown spoke of looking forward to Joel Embiid's traveling with the team, being in the team meetings and video sessions. Brown wanted his rehabilitating rookie center to always interact with his teammates and coaches. It's an approach the Sixers benefited from last season with Nerlens Noel. They were determined to do the same with Embiid, who had a foot injury. However, Brown announced before Saturday night's game against the Utah Jazz at EnergySolutions Arena that Embiid and shooting guard Hollis Thompson had been sent home.

The Flyers, fading fast in the Metropolitan Division, are getting ready to start their only California trip of the season, and some of the players think it's coming at a perfect time. "It's going to be our most important trip of the season," said high-scoring winger Jake Voracek, whose team has lost eight of its last nine games. "Last year, one of the reasons we made the playoffs is because we were successful on that road trip, and I don't see a reason why we shouldn't do the same thing.

The idea of Lana Del Rey at the Mann Center's hilltop Skyline Stage on Sunday sounded divine. What could be lovelier than Del Rey's distantly cool but captivating contralto and her torchy music's cinematic atmospheres, performed against a spring night's starry sky? Before a largely female crowd fond of floral circlets, Del Rey (resplendent in winged eyeliner) and her small yet mighty ensemble offered both mesmerizing hits (her career-kicking "Video Games," of course) and new fare ("West Coast")

CLEVELAND - The 76ers are in desperate need of a little rest and relaxation. "The team that came back from the West Coast in relation to what I have seen the last two nights, from an energy perspective, is night and day," coach Brett Brown said after Tuesday's 111-93 setback to the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena. "So we've got to get our players fresh. We've got to get a little mentally tougher, and deal with the reality of the landscape of an NBA season. " The Sixers (12-23)

THROUGH TWO preseason games, Michael Vick and Nick Foles have completed a combined 82.8 percent of their pass attempts. That's not a typo. Eighty-two point eight. Competition clearly has brought out the best in both of them, and so has Chip Kelly's offense, which among other things offers Eagles receivers route-option freedom they never had in Andy Reid's West Coast offense. The difference between being a receiver in the West Coast and being a receiver in Kelly's offense is the difference between having to strictly adhere to driving directions regardless of traffic congestion and being able to use an alternate route.
