US advances to World Cup's 2nd round despite loss
The United States reached the knockout stage of consecutive World Cups for the first time, just not the way the Americans wanted. Germany beat the U.S. 1-0 Thursday in soggy Recife on Thomas Mueller's 55th-minute goal to win Group G, but the Americans held onto second place when Portugal defeated Ghana 2-1 in a game played simultaneously in Brasilia.
Navarro has four teams, four individuals garner NJCAA academic honors
Navarro’s athletic landscape is filled with national and conference titles, and last November, the college’s women’s soccer team played for a national title. Heady for sure, in more ways than one. The soccer team was one of four Navarro College athletic teams honored by the NJCAA for academic achievements last school year.
Remembering Gwynn: One time in June 1997 ...
My childhood baseball heroes did not play during my childhood, strange as that may sound. ... I have three players I consider my all-time favorites, and one — Nomar Garciaparra — is four years younger than me. Another will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year. Greg Maddux, 48, is now a Texas Rangers consultant. And then there is the late Tony Gwynn, who passed away last week at 54. His death numbed me.
World Cup: Instead of breather, US contemplates math
Instead of taking a breather, the U.S. created a World Cup math puzzle for its fans back in America. Just 30 seconds from clinching advancement with a game to spare, the U.S. conceded a stoppage-time goal that left it with a 2-2 draw against Portugal on Sunday. With four points, the Americans may need at least a tie from their Group G finale against three-time champion Germany to advance to the knockout stage.

Outdoors: Kevin Reese — Tactical hunting: Sir, Yes Sir!
My pop once told me I might fit into my dress blues if I used bungee cords; the truth hurts. Looking at me it’s hard to believe I spent eight years in the Marines.
In all honestly, I’m not that bad off… I’m just not that well off; I could stand a few months of nonstop treadmill work.
Beyond reminiscing about my life as a Marine and wishing I still looked the part, I miss many aspects of active duty life – chief among them being camaraderie and my trusty M-16 A2 Service Rifle.
CHS Football: Tigers aim high in 7-on-7 football
It's only their second season of summer football, but for the Corsicana Tigers, everything is about the same thing: Improving.

Morgan: You never know who might be offended by a team mascot
The U.S. Patent office has voided the Washington Redskins’ trademark on the name Redskins.
Obviously, Congress is an outdated, useless institution since they seem to be bypassed every other day.
The patent office tried this in 1999, but the Washington entry in the NFL sued in federal court and won. They expect to do so again.
However, if the patent office action is upheld, then all sorts of team mascots could be in danger. Lots of them could be offensive to someone.
