--Brooks Koepka  is the first player to win back-to-back U-S Opens since Curtis Strange in 1989. He was in a four-way tie for the lead after three rounds at Shinnecock Hills and shot 68 on Sunday for a 1-over 281 total as no player could match par to complete the feat. Koepka shot 16 under par last year at Erin Hills for his first major victory, winning by four shots.

--The Bombers need a quarterback.  Backup Alex Ross suffered an injury during Thursday's season-opener against Edmonton.  Rookie Chris Streveler is the starter due to the Matt Nichols injury with former Rider Bryan Bennett now the backup.

--Tom Brady is thinking retirement. Speaking with Oprah Winfrey in an interview that aired on Winfrey's OWN Network Sunday,  the five-time Super Bowl champion and reigning NFL MVP said he now thinks about retirement more than he ever has. “I think about it more now than I used to,” Brady said. “I think I’m seeing that there’s definitely an end coming sooner rather than later.”  The reason appears to be family. The future Hall of Famer has two children with supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen and another with actress Bridget Moynahan, and he said his desire to be there for them has become a priority.

--Thousands of exuberant Mexican soccer fans took to the streets Sunday to cheer their national team’s long-shot win against Germany in Mexico’s first match of the 2018 World Cup soccer tournament.  Hirving Lozano's first half goal set off such a commotion that seismic detectors in Mexico City registered a false earthquake, which the geological institute said may have been generated by "massive jumps" across the city.  Other scores had Serbia beat Costa Rica 1-0, and Switzerland tied Brazil at 1

-- Adrian Houser -- who left Colorado Springs at 5 a.m. on Sunday, flew to Chicago, drove up to Milwaukee and made it to Miller Park about 30 minutes before first pitch -- vomited on the infield behind the mound on two occasions while pitching in the eighth inning of the Brewers' 10-9 loss to the Phillies. Houser allowed one run on two hits, but got through it with help from members of the Miller Park grounds crew, who cleaned up so play could continue.
