Women in sports have gained a lot of ground in the past few decades,but every now and then there comes a reminder that we're still considered second best.One of those reminders is obvious each year at the girls state lacrosse championships. Right there on the plaques for the winners and the runners-up is a figurine of a male lacrosse player.Talk about insulting. If this doesn't say that women's sports areconsidered second class, I don't know what does.Female athletes should not have to accept awards with male figurines.

Now that it's part of the Big Ten Conference, the University of Maryland will play Pennsylvania State University this upcoming football season on Nov. 1, giving fans their first real shot at a solid football rivalry in years. For 61 years, the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) was home to the University of Maryland and its fans, but it never really accepted the university. The All Carolina Conference, as some call it, has always thumbed its nose at Marylanders (designating the University of Pittsburgh as Maryland's "rival" in 2013 - yuck.

Paul Hoffman's 1947-48 NBA Rookie of the Year trophy did not receive the minimum bid of $10,000 at auction yesterday -- and that really didn't bother him."My family would have been upset," he said, laughing, after the Mr. Memorabilia auction at the Holiday Inn Cromwell Bridge. "I didn't expect it to sell for $10,000."The former Baltimore Bullets star said he probably will keep the trophy in his family and lend it to the Basketball Hall of Fame and the Indiana Sports Hall of Fame. His Purdue All-America uniform is on loan at the Indiana hall.

Navy welcomed back its head coach from a brief scare yesterday, then received more good news last night. The cherished, 170-pound Commander in Chief's Trophy, named in honor of the nation's president, was located intact after being stolen from the team locker room Monday night, apparently as a prank by Army supporters. Navy has gained the trophy the past two years by winning the football competition among the three service academies. Normally, it is kept in a locked glass case in Bancroft Hall, a residence facility, but it was moved to the locker room for motivational reasons this week.

Philadelphia -- Let me get this straight. The Naval Academy wants you to believe that a few West Point exchange students were able to break into Ricketts Hall and steal the Commander in Chief's Trophy right out from under the combined noses of the Academy's U.S. Marine security detail and the Secret Service. If you watched the 106th Army-Navy football game, you could see for yourself that such a scenario is ridiculous. There were, what, 70 of the biggest, baddest members of the West Point corps of cadets on the gridiron at Lincoln Financial Field yesterday and the trophy was sitting right there on a table at the 50-yard line ... and they didn't get close enough to see their reflections in it. The Black Knights were supposed to show up with some momentum after running up a four-game winning streak that included the victory over Air Force that put the trophy up for grabs yesterday, but the Midshipmen ran over and around them until there was no doubt who remained the dominant service academy football program.

In Candlestick Park, no less.Under Glanville's orders, the Falcons lugged an outlandish, five-foot trophy to their bench at Candlestick for Sunday's game. It was a three-tiered, wood and gold trophy, with figures of birds, football players and an angel.Trophy background: It was presented to the Falcons last season by an Atlanta trophy shop after they went 6-0 against California teams.

The Commander in Chief's Trophy is likely to remain in Bancroft Hall at the Naval Academy after Saturday's pulsating, last-second victory over Air Force. But the outcome may have enhanced the chances for a travel itinerary for the football players - to a third straight bowl game. A loss to the Falcons would have left the Midshipmen with a 1-3 record and an uphill challenge in the quest for another of their major goals, postseason play. Six wins over Division I-A opponents are required to qualify for a bowl, and Navy would have needed to capture five of its final seven while facing at least three potentially tough road games at Notre Dame, Rutgers and Rice.

I've had to explain this about 50 times since February: Yes, I was at the Super Bowl , but I didn't even go in to watch the Ravens play in the Super Bowl . Best decision of 2013, and maybe, just maybe, ever. You see, it's not really about the athletics for us Baltimore fans. Yeah, we want our players to crush and destroy, to run the fastest, tackle hardest. Who doesn't? But that's not all. Not even close. What true Baltimore fandom is about is the same thing our city is about - being a gritty, underdog crew that scraps for every ounce of respect we (all too infrequently)

After a two-year hiatus, the Navy football team was back at the White House on Friday to accept the Commander in Chief's trophy from President Obama in a ceremony held in the East Room. The Midshipmen had won the trophy - which is presented to the winner of the series among the three service academies - seven consecutive times beginning in 2003, but that record streak ended when Air Force claimed it in 2010 and 2011. Navy has won the trophy 13 times in all. "This never gets old," Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said.

One of the perks of getting elected to the Maryland General Assembly is that when the Baltimore Ravens win the Super Bowl, you get to have your picture taken with the Lombardi Trophy and whichever Ravens can be lured to Annapolis. On Thursday morning, it was wide receiver Torrey Smith who represented the championship team as lawmakers basked in the reflected glory. Ravens president Dick Cass told the Senate it's tough to get players to attend events this time of year because it's their off-season but said Smith, a University of Maryland graduate, can be counted on to show up. Smith, standing at the Senate podium with the trophy in front of him, told lawmakers that he "still gets goose bumps" when he sees it. He promised to come back when he gets his Super Bowl ring.
