Blast tonight Matchup: Blast (1-1) vs. St. Louis Steamers (0-0) Site: Savvis Center, St. Louis Time: 8:35 Radio: WCBM (680 AM) Outlook: The Blast visits St. Louis, where the Steamers will be playing their first game of the season. That should give the Blast, the two-time defending league champion, an upper hand. But this Baltimore team won't look quite like the one that opened the season with two games against San Diego. Key defenseman Danny Kelly injured a knee in practice Tuesday and will be sidelined "a few weeks," said Blast GM Kevin Healey.

WASHINGTON -- The Air Force will have to lay off as many as 3,300 junior officers this year and next as it struggles to pare its ranks and reduce its budget, according to the service's top general.The firings would be the first by any of the armed services during the current drawdown, and would mark the first time since the end of the Vietnam War that the Air Force has cut its budget by issuing pink slips to career military officers.Gen. Merrill A. McPeak, Air Force chief of staff, told the Los Angeles Times that the service has drawn up the extraordinary plans because young officers have shunned a special buyout offer in far greater numbers than expected.

Blast coach Tim Wittman had been concerned about how his team would start the game last night after a 12-day layoff. Though those fears were allayed with a dominating early performance, it was how the Blast finished that made the difference in a 10-9 win over the Philadelphia KiXX before a season-high 9,315 at 1st Mariner Arena. Trailing by a goal midway through the fourth quarter, the Blast got three straight goals, including scores by Chile Farias and David Bascome within a 43-second span, to propel the team to its third straight win. For Wittman, however, the outcome was too close for comfort.

Les Aspin, D-Wis.

WASHINGTON -- By destroying bridges, bunkers and tanks by the thousands before the ground offensive began, allied air forces virtually defeated the Iraqi army by themselves, the U.S. Air Force chief of staff concluded yesterday.Gen. Merrill A. "Tony" McPeak told reporters at the Pentagon, "This is the first time in history that a full army has been defeated by air power."The victory in the air was assured within the first few hours after bombing began the morning of Jan. 17, he said, thanks to precision knockouts of Iraqi anti-aircraft radar and the bonus element of "tactical surprise."

Some compare it to computer dating, where what you see is not always what you get. Others say it's like marriage, without the kids and the mortgage.Everyone has done it at least once, and some are reaching double-digits. In the world of professional beach volleyball, breaking up isn't very hard to do."You always think the grass is greener on the other side," said veteran Gail Castro.You won't find any grass at the HarborView complex during this year's U.S. Olympic trials, but you won't find many women's teams who've been together very long.

So few hours in a day, so many sit-ups to do."I've only had time to do about half of them," Holly McPeak, beach volleyball's poster body, was saying around noon yesterday.So that would be, how many?"Eight hundred, I guess."If McPeak is peeved at recent intrusions on her self-imposed boot camp -- there was a taping with Oprah in Chicago on Thursday, a slew of media interviews and promotions here yesterday -- you can't tell. Like many of the players on the pseudo-Santa Monica built off Key Highway for the U.S. Olympic beach volleyball trials, McPeak's eyes are cooly shielded behind reflective sunglasses.
