Rocket-mania sweeps Houston
HOUSTON (AP) — As the Houston Rockets close in on a second consecutive world championship, sports fans in the nation’s fourth-largest city are finally getting used to the sweet taste of success.
Many fans, deprived of bragging nghts for decades until last year, have grown downright boastful about the defending NBA champs, and not without good reason.
Houston took a commanding 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven NBA Finals with a 117-106 victory over the Orlando Magic Friday night and headed home with hopes of closing out the series at The Summit. Game 3 is Sunday.
“We’re not coming back,” bragged an exuberant Rockets fan who trekked to
Orlando for Game 2. “Bring the brooms out to The Summit We’re going to clean ’em up.”
The confidence is a stark contrast to the well-warranted pessimism Houston sports fans have long held about their teams. After all the big-game collapses by the football Oilers, baseball Astros and even the Rockets, fans had gotten used to rooting for also-rans.
Even last year, during the Rockets’ drive toward Houston’s first major sports title, fans were bracing themselves for yet another letdown. All that has changed now, with trepidation evolving into unbridled joy.
The Bayou City is dripping with red and gold. Rockets garb is flying off retail
shelves, sports bars report booming business and placards reading “Go Rockets!,” “Believe It!” and ‘Two-ston!” are pasted on car windows all over town.
“Last year, the fans thought they were going to let them down again, but this year it seems like the fans are more confident,” said John Black, 20, a lifelong Rockets fan. “This year they’re sticking with them all the way through.”
“I think it’s going to be a total sweep.” Ken Burrough has experienced the change in attitudes first-hand as both an athlete and a fan. The former All-Pro receiver played for the Oilers during their “Luv Ya Blue” days, when they twice failed to get past the Pittsburgh Steelers for a Super Bowl berth.
Catfish easier caught in muddy water
Much of Texas has recently received heavy rains. Many Lakes and rivers have muddied up. This rapid change in water clarity changes the way fish feed. Most of the time it will slow the bite down considerably, unless you are targeting catfish, then you are in luck.
This is not to say that you can’t catch catfish in clear water, because you can. But off-colored water is better every
Catfish are present in virtually any body of water in the state. They actually prefer muddy water for some reason. I am under the opinion that the mud particles in the water and the swift movement help the fish locate food through their senses of smell.
Blue catfish and channel catfish rely on their sense of smell to locate food. This is why the more offensive the odor of the bait, the better the results.
Yellow catfish prefer live bait over dead bait. They rely on their limited vision to locate forage. These yellow catfish are occasionally caught on dead bait. Most of the time it is when you
have a baited hole and there's a lot of action from channels and blues. The yellows will be attracted because of the other fish in the area, not the bait you are using.
Summer is a great time to take advantage of these easy-to-catch fish. Now with off-colored water, your odds of success have just gotten better.

Coaches are giving Brown practice time at running back and fullback. His strong receiving skills out of the backfield work in his favor.
After trying his hand in the World Football League, Brown said he decided Ins chances were belter in the CFL.
"I felt it would he best to try the CFL as opposed to the NFL," he said. "A lot of times the NFL will bring in a guy for training camp just to have someone to take repetitions with no intents of keeping him."
Neal, a sure-handed target in the Longhorns’ passing game from 1991-93, was having a successful training camp before suffering an ankle injury this week. Coaches expect him to contend for spot upon his recovery.
Several other Longhorns have since left the camp. Linebacker Bo Robinson was cut to make the 65-man roster limit, and linebacker Kevin Waller retired alter re injuring the same knee that plagued his six-year career at UT.
Former Longhorn quarterback Peter Gardere, the man who hit Walker with that game-winning pass over the Sooners, just missed his old teammates at camp. A punier for the Goldminers in 1993-94, Gardere signed with the Memphis Mad Dogs after the season.
Walker is the veteran of the current Texas contingent at camp. Drafted in the eiglh round by the Green Bay Packers, he spent two years in the pros and at training camps with the Sacramento Gold Miners and the Toronto Argonauts
Like his three college teammates, Walker feels he has a legitimate shot at making the team.
"Basically for me ifs just a matter of getting out here and being game-ready," he said. "I know I can catch the ball. I ve always done that. I just have to make sure I execute and learn the routes in order to put myself in position to make the catch."

She is one of 18 girls in her age category in Texas who were chosen for the team. Tracey Timmerman, a Clark High School student and San Antonio's leading scorer in girls' soccer for 1994-95, was the only other player in the area to make the team.
The Olympic Development Team, which features the top players from a 12-state area, will compete in a weeklong tournament at the University of Montevallo in Alabama, beginning July 6-11.
A regional team will then be selected from the 12-state pool of players. Four regional teams convene in November to play and train under the national coaching staff.
Approximately 30 players advance to
