    Austria's Marcel Hirscher wins giant slalom gold

    Marcel Hirscher has turned his domination in the giant slalom into a second gold medal at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

    Olympic TV highlights for Sunday: Maddie Bowman defends gold medal in freeski halfpipe

    So far, so good for American halfpipe dreams. Four years after winning all but one of the four halfpipe events — Shaun White finished fourth in the men’s snowboarding finals in 2014 — the United States is 2-for-2 in these Winter Games, with gold medals for snowboarders Chloe Kim and White. When...

    Russia drills USA 4-0 in Olympic hockey

    Olympic Athletes from Russia 4, Olympic athletes not from the NHL 0. If we learned anything from the third round of pool play in an Olympic men’s ice hockey tournament without NHL players, it’s that a cohesive unit largely from two teams in Russia’s KHL is better than a rag-tag collection of U.S....

    Kern, Carter lead Navy past UMBC, 7-5, in defensive struggle

    Going into this season it appeared a potent, veteran offense might have to carry a young, inexperienced defense for the Navy lacrosse team. Three games in, it looks like the Midshipmen may rely on the stingy defense that has been a long-standing tradition of the program. Goalkeeper Ryan Kern made...

    Collins twins dominate draws as Navy overcomes slow start, routs Columbia

    When the Navy women’s lacrosse team is clicking on all cylinders, it is a very difficult machine to stop.

Local ponds and lakes are getting more active

The other day I listened as a guy whined to his buddy that sending a car — a Tesla Roadster, no less — into space aboard the world’s most powerful rocket was “ridiculous…a waste of time and money.” Seriously? Well, first off, it wasn’t your time or money. And secondly, it was flat-out awesome!...

Few deep-pocketed owners, no sheiks, no $1-million 2-year-olds. The 78-year-old has gained a reputation for spotting horses, usually claimers, and...

    San Luis Rey Downs fire might have saved a life, too

    Scribbled in the back of an aging Bible that traces the roots of Hank Wesch to his native Germany, there’s a telling notation. The family, it seems, ran into financial hardship when money was “squandered on horses and other speculations.” Those four-legged enterprises proved impossible to shake,...
