As a retiring professional athlete, Blast captain Lance Johnson already has plans to sharpen his golf game. It's not to pass the time or fuel his competitive drive, but more out of necessity as he prepares to move full time into his next playing field - the world of banking. "What I've been told, when you're out golfing, people tend to let their guard down a little bit. So it's not so much a business meeting as it is two friends playing a round of golf - that's where you can create some good business opportunities," he said.

Ask Lemar Johnson for a list of his favorite books, and he'll include "Hop on Pop" and "The Berenstain Bears and the Double Dare."

His father, Lance Johnson Sr., had an interactive computer program at home that recounted the Dr. Seuss classic - over and over. "He played the CD-ROM constantly ... " said Johnson, 30.

Quietly. That might best describe how rookie Billy Nelson has settled into a regular spot in the Blast lineup this season. For a 22-year-old defender in the Major Indoor Soccer League, that can be considered a fairly high compliment. Out of necessity, the Blast (6-7 going into tonight's game in Kansas City) had to bring along its 2001 first-round draft pick quicker than anticipated because of a rash of injuries in the back. The Bel Air High grad and former UMBC standout has turned the necessity into a luxury, developing into a reliable presence as a tough, physical marker whose confidence on the ball grows with every shift.
