Garden Grove High School's Nanette Nava is the kind of softball player who plays close to, and sometimes on, the ground. It doesn't appear her shirt-tail has ever been tucked in. Though she's only a sophomore, Garden Grove Coach Paula Cervantes says, "She's the one player that I can count on 99 times out of 100 to perform under pressure."

You can't tell Toronto Mayor Rob Ford what to do. Don't even bother trying. It will just blow up in your face. Mark Cohon, the commissioner of the Canadian Football League, found out the hard way Sunday when Ford showed up at a playoff game between the Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats despite a request from the CFL's head honcho that he stay away. Ford has recently admitted to smoking crack cocaine and drinking excessively. And he's been accused of pressuring a female employee for oral sex, an allegation Ford vehemently denied while using vulgar language on live TV -- and while wearing an Argonauts jersey.

Two House Democrats want to question two major investors in solar panel manufacturer Solyndra about the failure of the Fremont, Calif., company. Reps. Henry A. Waxman (D-Beverly Hills) and Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) asked that executives from two of Solyndra's largest private investors, Argonaut Private Equity and Madrone Capital Partners, be called to testify at a hearing Friday or in the near future. Solyndra Chief Executive Brian Harrison and Chief Financial Officer W.G. Stover Jr. are expected to testify Friday about the failure of the company, which received a $535-million loan guarantee from the Department of Energy in 2009 as part of the Obama administration's economic stimulus plan.

Senior Jeff Kanegae of Garden Grove High School has only one goal for the rest of the season--to be healthy enough to play on a regular basis. After all, he already has missed most of the preseason and part of league play. Kanegae, the Argonauts' leadoff hitter, didn't practice with the team until three days before the first game because he was playing basketball for Garden Grove. Kanegae's frustrations mounted after basketball season when three games were canceled because of rain.

Opponents usually have more offensive weapons than Garden Grove, but senior Matt Revelle did more than his fair share to make up the difference Friday night. He caught a touchdown pass, threw one on an option play, recovered a fumble and had the longest run of the game as the host Argonauts upset Bolsa Grande, 32-15, in a Garden Grove League game.

Staking his claim to most excessive/tasteless celebration after a touchdown, Toronto Argonaut Arland Bruce was fined an undisclosed amount for his "tribute" to Michael Jackson. After scoring against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Wednesday, Bruce took off his helmet, jersey and shoulder pads before lying down in the end zone, pretending to be buried. Referees hit Bruce with two objectionable conduct penalties and the Argonauts hit him in the wallet.

When the original Skate game was released in late 2007, it succeeded in doing one thing that the very successful Tony Hawk skateboarding franchise didn't do: It made a skating simulator accessible to all. Gone were the maddeningly complex button combos that had to be pushed in exactly the right order to pull off amazing tricks. In Skate, they were replaced with a simple two-control-stick system: one to push the board, one to do the tricks.

This jet-watercraft video game from British game maker Argonaut is your big chance to race through canals at 60 mph while competing with other racers online through their X-box consoles. Racers navigate a course marked by buoys, and there are ramps to catch some air. The game allows for a limited number of buoys to be skipped during the course of the race -- allowing for a strategic shortcut or a few beginner joystick blunders.

Garden Grove High held off a late Rancho Alamitos drive and defeated the visiting Vaqueros, 17-9, in a Garden Grove League game Thursday. The Argonauts (3-3-1, 3-1) have won three consecutive games after an 0-3-1 start in which they were shut out three times. Garden Grove has all but locked up a playoff berth with league games against Santiago and winless Bolsa Grande remaining. Two victories would give Garden Grove at least second place.
