"The 'Cathedral on 39th and Figueroa'"

"Now, on the sacred turf where Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers came from behind to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs in the nation’s first Super Bowl and where Pope John Paul presided over mass for  103,854 souls—filmmakers shot  a 40-minute group sex scene for 'The Gangbang Girl #32.'
"That sordid mess came to light in 2011 when a Times investigation dug up a massive bribery and embezzlement scheme orchestrated by the stadium's event manager, Todd DeStefano, who was sentenced to six months in jail on Thursday and ordered to pay the commission $500,000. Prosecutors suggested that more than $2 million embezzled from the Coliseum Commission helped lead it toward 'financial ruin.' The commission gave control of the facility to USC."

Joe Mozingo in the Los Angeles Times looks to see how the return of the Rams will affect the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
