Column: Trauma is as trauma does

Most of us of a certain age have memories etched in our brains of traumatic life events. I’m not necessarily talking about the month I turned 40, just a few days before my oldest child became a teenager. I’ve called that trauma times two, but it wasn’t really a shocker. I had only to look at a calendar and predict my predicament.

Fan's view: Real Madrid thrash RCD Mallorca 6-1

During a week when England’s Women’s Team beat Luxembourg 10-0 in a World Cup qualifying game – the Luxembourg coach said afterwards “It was the eighth goal that killed us off !” – Real Mallorca, in front of their American owner Robert Sarver, suffered their third worst defeat in the club’s 106 year history when they were “battered” 6-1 by a rampant Real Madrid on Wednesday night. Los Meringues breezed past Real Mallorca and it was the latter’s ex player from El Toro, Calvia, Marco Asensio, who headlined the victory with his first Real Madrid hat-trick.

Fryer’s First and 10 for high school football’s Week 5

Starting the football week in Orange County with notes, comments and observations …. 1. The top 25: We have five voters for the Orange County football top 25. How my ballot might have differed from others this week: I placed Santa Margarita at No. 3 because of the way the Eagles played in the second half of their 42-21 comeback win over Los Alamitos. Santa Margarita outscored Los Alamitos 42-7 in the second half, and that was good enough to beat out Mission Viejo for the No. 3 spot.
