Oche queen Anastasia Dobromyslova could be set to leave the BDO after officials tried to ban her flights. The Russian beauty won her second world title on Friday night, coming from a set down to beat Deta Hedman 2-1. It came after tournament bosses told her just 30 minutes before her semi-final that she couldn't use her flights. Then after beating Trina Gulliver in the semi, the BDO website report called her a "snarling Russian", "arrogant" and that she "played mind games to topple the Golden Girl".

DALLAS - Given its lack of success on Saturdays, the Blast might want to rethink its schedule in the future. The Blast, undefeated on all other days of the week this season, fell to 1-5 on Saturdays with a 7-6 overtime loss to the Dallas Sidekicks at Reunion Arena last night. Ricardinho scored the game-winning goal, his second of the season, at 11:52 of overtime on a power play. It was the Sidekicks' second power play in overtime. Dallas had killed off a Blast power play earlier in the extra period.

Block I have always been amused when I hear comments that describe AP courses as "college equivalent. "  What colleges are they referring to?  Yale, Duke, and Stanford or Muddy River State?  To suggest that the typical AP course taught by the typical high school teacher is an educational experience equivalent to that offered at our nation's most distinguished colleges is ludicrous.
