HQ Football Team, China Bay
This picture was labelled 'HQ Football Team', although with no indication of which HQ. RAF China Bay is most likely, as the picture is included amongst other pictures from the same location, but Jessore is also possible.
Many thanks to Ken Creed for sending us these pictures, which were taken by his wife's uncle Terry Ruff during his time with No.357 Squadron, a special operations unit that operated over Burma, Malaya and Sumatra.
May 9, 1943 – Wilmeth Sidat-Singh Dead
Syracuse University basketball and football star, Wilmeth Sidat-Singh (center), was often referred to in the press as Hindu (a term at the time used to describe someone of Indian heritage). Singh, however, was born to African American parents. After his father died, his mother remarried a man from the West Indies who adopted young Wilmeth Webb.
While he never claimed to be something he wasn’t (and often tried to clear up the error in the press to no avail), this popular misconception allowed Sidat-Singh to travel and play with teammates to a schools that did not allow African Americans to compete in sports. An article finally explaining his true ethnicity cost him the opportunity to play in a game soon after in Maryland. The star halfback, known as the Syracuse Walking Dream, sat on the sidelines as the Orangemen lost the game, powerless to assist his teammates.
After college, there were no opportunities for an African American in professional sports, so Sidat-Singh played for two barnstorming teams, the Syracuse Reds and the Harlem Renaissance.
In 1943, he answered the call to serve his country and became a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen. On May 9, 1943, his engine failed during a training mission over Lake Huron and Sidat-Singh drowned. He was 25 years old.
Guatemala: A chance to learn
The Guatemalans asked if they could watch the Americans practice -- the day before the teams were schedule to face off.
In the U.S., a request like this would be laughed at, ridiculed, splashed across social media. No team would let its next competitor watch it practice.
U.S. head coach Kirk Talley declined the Guatemalans' request. Instead, he invited them to practice along with his squad.
Word quickly spread through the dormitory on the campus of Monterrey Institute of Technology, where all five teams were staying, that Guatemala and the U.S. would be practicing together. Soon after practice began, about 30 players from China sprinted toward the field with their helmets and shoulder pads, ready to join in. Talley had to improvise. He added 30 minutes of individual drills to the start of practice so the Guatemalans and Chinese players could get hands-on training.

"I have personally learned a lot from the American guys because they spend time teaching you," said Oscar Perdomo, a 33-year-old middle linebacker and left guard. "They are really good guys. They are conscious of how football is in Guatemala."
Three years ago, American football was barely alive in Guatemala. Interest was low. Participation was even lower. But Perdomo and others who believed in the sport began building it at a grassroots level. Perdomo runs the First Down Academy in Guatemala -- what he says is the largest football academy in the country with about 50 kids ages 5 to 14.
A year ago, a high school flag football league was started. Recently, the first field specifically for American football was built in Guatemala City.
Most of Guatemala's players, who range in age from 17 to 35, have been playing the sport for six years or less. It didn't matter to them that they were held scoreless during the WUC event.
"To be here and to play and represent our country and to be the first guys in a world championship, that means a lot to us," said receiver Pablo Martinez, a 28-year-old engineer. "We know that we don't have the biggest team or the many numbers of the guys on the team. We are representing our country. It doesn't matter."

As it happened: Persistent U.S. breaks down China, goes into semis
Alex Morgan and the USWNT take on China PR in the quarterfinal.
The Americans seemed to dash their attacking demons against China PR on Friday, holding out to win 1-0 over a poor Chinese team. China PR were indeed organized, as the billing before the match had indicated, but the USWNT were solid at the back and even better in attack to pull out what might have been a blowout if the Americans had finished some of their better chances.
Solid all-around game from our #USA ladies. Controlled the match. Wambach's a G and Johnston only knows Beast Mode. Proud. #USWNT #1N1T

Congrats to @ussoccer_wnt on their win over China. Great contributions from @AmyRodriguez8,@kohara19 , and @moeebrian . Team play, team win!

FT: That’s it! The USA is through to the semis for a date with Germany. If the Americans can keep up the pressure and defensive acument that they had against China PR, we might be in for a great game on Tuesday, June 30.
85′ : Great pass by Heath to Press. Wambach comes on for A-Rod. She last for longer than previously thoguht. Let’s see if the USWNT can hold on to this lead.
80′ : As Heather O’Reilly makes her way onto the field, check out this video of Lloyd putting the U.S. ahaed.
75′ : China PR still look a bit toothless in attack. Solid chances still being created by the USWNT and this is the way the Americans need to close out games. Consistent pressure, still looking dangerous in attack and an absolute bunker of a defense. If they keep it up, they may give Germany a good game.
70′ : Solo called into action, really for the first time this entire match. Not a great corner but she might ahve done better with the punch. China look frustrated and lacking options in attack. A-Rod looks tired and her and Morgan are making the same runs. Be surprising if she stayed on the pitch past the 80 minute.
65′ : China starting to put the pressure on, down a goal. Whether it results in anything will depend on American Hero Julie Johnston and Sauerbrunn staying alert on the defensive end.
64′ : Here’s a look at that save by Wang Fei on Lloyd. Absolute rocket.
60′ : Press appears to be getting ready to enter for the U.S. and she comes on for O’Hara. Interesting choice as a substitute. Let’s see if she can improve on her past performances in this World Cup.
55′ : Guessing by performances, thinking that A-Rod is the first one off for the USWNT to give some minutes to Syd or Christen Press. Both are dynamic forwards who can really pressure China’s backline.
51′ : Goal! USWNT are on top 1-0 after Johnston’s deep ball finds Lloyd, who buries a header for the first goal of the game. The question that seems to be on everyone’s mind now: "Will the flood gates open, or is this a one-off?"
50′ : USWNT attack starting to look a bit out of sync in the opening minutes of the second half. China PR still not posing much of a threat offensively but the Chinese’s bunker mentality is frustrating the U.S. attack.
45′ : Don’t let the 0-0 scoreline going into halftime fool you, this game has been incredibly one-sided — as evidenced by Morgan’s sliding shot that almost broke the deadlock in extra time. Should be an interesting team talk for both teams at half. Let’s see what Jill Ellis elects to do with the lineup, whether it be introducing a new attacker or switching up the formation. Hint: It will probably be the former.
40′ : The USWNT’s line is becoming increasingly high as Sauerbrunn and Johnston are at least 10-14 yards within the opponents half. China should just boot it up he field to relieve some pressure and catch the defenders out of position.
37′ : Carli Lloyd lets out an absolute rocket of a free kick and Wang Fei punches it out before it goes into the upper 90. She also appears to hae hurt her wrist on the shot.
35′ : China PR make the first substitution for the player that collided with Johnston earlier in the game. Game has cooled off a bit in the last few minute but USWNT still pushing and limiting the Chinese to poor crosses and half-chances.
30′ : This is the type of pressure that the USWNT was expected to play coming into the World Cup. Americans finally playing to their place early in the game and it’s really no surprise that they’re dominating.
26′ : Johnston puts a shot on goal but it’s cleared off the line.
25′ : Some great attacking play by the U.S. here. Morgan almost gets a headed goal after the Chinese ‘keeper comes far off her line and misses the punch. Dangerous free-kick from Heath results in a missed opportunity.
20′ : Both teams showing solid spells of possession but the USWNT still dominate that stat by a fair margin. Again, it looks like the key to unlocking this Chinese team lies on the flanks, where Kling, Krieger, Heath and O’Hara provide a constant threat. Speaking of O’Hara, she flashes a diving header just wide after a great cross by Heath.
15′ : USWNT has cooled off a bit from its hot start but the Americans still look dangerous going forward. O’Hara is making great runs down the right flank, her touch seems to be a little off but if the USWNT keep working the flanks and firing in crosses, it’ll be able to break down this China PR team.
10′ : China PR starting to press a little bit now and getting more possession. So far each of the players that are new to the starting lineup — Kelley O’Hara, Morgan Brian and A-Rod — look good. This is probably the most we’ve seen the USWNT attack with consistently good chances.
5′ : USWNT have started very well. my Rodriguez blew an easy chance in the second minute when she was one-on-one with the Chinese goalkeeper but the Americans have been very positive in attack so far.
1′ : Let’s get this thing started! USWNT start with the ball and we’re off.
Here are your lineups for today’s game.

Question & Answers, with Muscle & Fitness
Question: I want to build strength. Is running before my workouts a bad idea?
Answer: I suggest running after you train. While five to ten minutes of low intensity running is a decent warm-up, cardio sessions that last longer than five minutes pre-workout can lead to muscular fatigue and use up energy stored that could play a huge role in helping your push more weight and attain new PRs.

World Baseball Classic 2017: Team China is just looking for a win
As the 2017 World Baseball Classic is set to begin, Team China is keeping expectations low. “We come in here with the thought that we need to win a game,” manager John McLaren told MLB.com in January.
That sounds depressing, but it’s realistic. After going winless during the first WBC, China has won exactly one game in each of the past two, and they seem just fine with that result.
The truth is, there’s just not a lot of talent on the roster. Former Kansas City Royals pitcher Bruce Chen is the only player with major-league experience. There are some players on the roster who have minor-league experience, but none of them have a future in the majors.
With that in mind, China’s goal should remain small. They’ll take on some formidable opponents in Round 1, so winning one game would be a significant accomplishment. If they can somehow steal a second win, China could advance past Round 1 of the WBC for the first time.
Schedule details: China is part of Pool B, and will play the first round of the tournament in Tokyo. Their first game is against Team Cuba, and will take place Tuesday, March 7 at 10 p.m. ET. After playing Cuba, they’ll take on Team Australia March 9 and Team Japan March 10.
’13 finish: China went just 1-2 in 2013, with their only win coming against Team Brazil. They were defeated by both Cuba and Japan, who they’ll have to play again in 2017. Team China’s 1-2 finish was not enough to push them past Round 1 of the tournament.
Biggest star: There’s only one player on Team China with major-league experience, and that’s former Kansas City Royals pitcher Bruce Chen. The 39-year-old played for 11 different clubs over his 17-year career in Major League Baseball, six of which came with the Royals. Chen had a few solid seasons, but was never a standout player. He finished his MLB career with a 4.62 ERA over 1,532 innings.
Notable absence: St. Louis Cardinals infielder Kolten Wong is the biggest name missing here. He’s never participated in the tournament before, however, so his absence shouldn’t come as a surprise. On top of that, Wong isn’t guaranteed a starting spot with the Cardinals this spring. The team needs to find playing time for him, Jedd Gyorko, Jhonny Peralta, Matt Adams and Matt Carpenter. It makes sense for Wong to stay back with the team and prove he deserves to be the full-time second baseman.
Washington Nationals pitcher Vance Worley is also missing from the roster. He’s not assured of a spot on the Nationals’ 25-man roster, and would probably benefit from staying in camp and showing the coaches he belongs.
Player you should get familiar with: First baseman/outfielder Gui Yuan Xu. Unless Chen decides to go the Eric Gagne route and attempts a comeback, Xu stands the best chance of eventually making the majors. The 21-year-old spent 2016 with the Baltimore Orioles Gulf Coast League team. He hit .247/.271/.284 over 85 plate appearances.
Infielder Ray Chang and shortstop Joey Wong also have experience in the minors leagues, but both players are currently free agents.
Do they have a chance to win? Nope. Team China’s main focus will likely be advancing past the first round. If they can do that, their appearance will be considered a success.
THREE BIG QUESTIONS ABOUT CHINA
Can they play the underdog? There’s no way to sugarcoat it: No one expects anything from Team China. Their own manager said the goal is about winning one game in the tournament. One win would be huge for them, but it won’t be enough to advance them past the first round. If Team China can somehow pull out a second victory, they would easily be the best underdog story in the WBC. That would be a lot of fun, even if it’s unlikely.
Does Bruce Chen have anything left? Admittedly, this isn’t all that exciting. There aren’t a lot of people clamoring for Bruce Chen to make a comeback, especially considering he posted an 8.07 ERA over his last 54 2/3 innings in the majors. But with Eric Gagne talking about a return, maybe Chen will get the itch to try and get back to the majors. Crazier things have happened, right?
Why should I watch this team? Well, everyone loves an underdog. If Team China pulls off a win, you can enjoy the entire team celebrating as if they won the World Series. There’s something incredibly satisfying about watching a team overcome gigantic odds. On top of that, there’s always potential to see history or some type of fun fact. Did you know Wei Wang, the team’s catcher, was the first player to hit a home run in the WBC? He’s now 38 and still playing for the club. Perhaps another player will make history with a strong showing?
