Starting tomorrow, sketches of these two men will appear on billboards around Los Angeles. They are wanted in connection with the beating of Bryan Stow in the parking lot after a Giants game. Stow "is basically gone," his mother said this week.
It's not really a "sports" story in the sense that we probably shouldn't care so much more about this than any other horrible senseless crime, even though we do. But at least we can agree it's a good idea to catch some bad people. LA readers call 1-877-LAPD-247 with any tips. There's a reward.
The billboards are being paid for by a private ad agency, by the way. One might say (if one wanted to make this a sports story again) that this is the kind of thing the team should have been doing out of its own pocket. That is, if it weren't caught up in so many other things this past month.
