It's probably safe to assume most of us are looking forward to spring. It's no coincidence that snow is a four-lettered word. Especially after the past two weeks. But all this snow didn't prevent the youth of our neighborhood from accomplishing some pretty impressive achievements. David Dippel, 6, won all three of his Brazilian Jujitsu matches in a tournament at Team Maryland BJJ in Clarksville. In addition, David is preparing for a judo competition scheduled for March in Hyattsville, as well as upcoming tournaments in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Hawaii.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- The "graveyard of favorites," as Saratoga Race Course is often called, more than lived up to its reputation in Saturday's Travers Stakes.Not only did favored Strike the Gold fall flat, but the race may also have cost second choice Hansel his racing career.Speaking yesterday from his headquarters at Arlington Park in suburban Chicago, trainer Frank Brothers said a racing future for Hansel, the Preakness and Belmont winner, was "possible but not probable.""He's probably finished racing for the year, and the decision about his career will be made shortly," Brothers said.

For those of you indecisive types -- and you know who you are, some of the time anyway -- let me introduce you to Frank Brothers, a new role model.Once up a time, he couldn't make up his mind either.Well, that's not exactly true. He'd make up his mind, then he'd change it. Then he'd change it back. Then he'd change it again.He'd lie awake at nights while the two halves of his brain played ping-pong inside his head. You try to sleep through that racket. ++ Brothers couldn't.Brothers knew this: He had a horse named Hansel who went off as the favorite in the Kentucky Derby -- the biggest race of them all -- and finished 10th.

LOUISVILLE -- He is called Handsome Hansel, and for good reason.This strapping bay colt, with the broad white blaze, is a show stopper in the looks department.He is also the horse a bunch of Marylanders back home are rooting for. His broodmare sire is Dancing Count, a gritty purveyor of speed and precocity for more than a decade in the Maryland stallion ranks, who is still breeding mares at age 23 at Shamrock Farm in Carroll County."Hansel is the best-looking horse in the Derby field," Daily Racing Form columnist Joe Hirsch said yesterday morning, a horse who would turn a few heads away from Tank, Maryland's gorgeous non-Derby starter.

Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters is the latest twisted adptation of a classic tale or character, akin to tales Pride and Prejudice and Zombies or Abraham Lincolm Vampire Hunter . As might be expected from such a bizarre mashup of Grimm's fairy tale and modern culture, the movie seems to have split critics and viewers, according to early reactions. Here are excerpts some reviews: -- Tribune: Writer-director Tommy Wirkola focuses on the fights, and flings all manner of viscera at the 3-D camera as limbs are whacked off and heads and torsos explode.

For most people, the attractions of Christmas do not include the possibility of children roasting over an open fire. But that has not kept Engelbert Humperdinck's "Hansel and Gretel" from becoming a favorite opera at Christmastide. Based on a vivid tale by the Brothers Grimm and first performed Dec. 23, 1893, Humperdinck's most famous opera does, of course, feature lots of talk and images of sweets, notably gingerbread. So it's easy to make a seasonal tie-in, which is what Washington National Opera did over the weekend with a revival of its 2007 family-friendly production.
