Logic says that the Los Angeles Sol should win Saturday's Women's Professional Soccer championship game in Carson. Instinct says it will be Sky Blue FC of New Jersey. Logic says the Sol, which has the best record in WPS, the league's top goal scorer in Brazil's Marta, the league's No. 1 goalkeeper in Canada's Karina LeBlanc and is playing on its own Home Depot Center field, should prevail. Instinct says Sky Blue, which finished fourth out of seven WPS teams, had a losing record, went through two coaching changes in five months and dealt with turmoil on and off the field, can win. In other words, the 1 p.m. match is there for the taking.

Moon Sang Kim's "Sky Blue" is like a lot of other Asian sci-fi anime: a stunningly imagined world of the future populated with one-dimensional characters caught up in a trite plot. This Korean production plays like an elementary reworking of "Metropolis" with an ecological conscience. "Sky Blue" is likely to cast a spell on only the most devout anime fans. It's 2140, and mankind has so recklessly exploited the environment that it has triggered some sort of worldwide catastrophe that has left the sun permanently obscured by impenetrable muddy clouds.

AT SKY BLUE FC Time: 1 p.m. PDT. On the air: None. Where: TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, N.J. Records: Sol 1-0-0, Sky Blue 0-0-0. Record vs. Sky Blue: Debut season. Update: Having won the inaugural Women's Professional Soccer game by defeating the Washington Freedom, 2-0, in Carson on Sunday, the Sol in midweek further strengthened its attack.

After seasons of ho-hum home spa color schemes -- white on white on white, with a touch of teak or green glass tile -- bathrooms are getting the royal treatment. Vibrant cobalts, refreshing turquoises or soft shades of sky blue add a Newport Beach neo-preppy splash to the powder room. On the vanity, the latest trend is translucent, glossy plastic and satin-finished resin accessories that work well with floral towels or the exuberant Italian patterns of Missoni.

Question: I'd like to redecorate my living room. The walls and ceiling are off-white, and the baseboards are white. The draw draperies, which I must keep, are made of sky-blue antique satin. I have an 18th-Century button-back mahogany-trimmed sofa that needs upholstering. The room has hardwood floors, one round mahogany end table, one "step" mahogany end table and two crystal lamps. I will purchase a Queen Anne love seat and two Queen Anne wing chairs.

BEIJING -- Forget disturbing weather forecasts and pollution-index numbers. That's so yesterday. The choked, clogged air of Week 1 seemed a distant memory on the eve of the men's Olympic marathon. Blue skies and sun have been the norm in the latter stages of the Olympic Games, and the forecast is for the low 70s when the race starts at 7:30 a.m. at Tiananmen Square on Sunday (4:30 p.m. today, PDT). Wonder whether marathon world-record holder Haile Gebrselassie, who made a media splash a while back when he declined to run it because of concerns about the polluted air, is feeling any sense of regret?

It didn't take long for Jewel Van Valin's cross-country art project to take off. Passengers flying in the difficult days after 9/11 were anxious and irritable because of tightened security and fewer flight amenities. The Delta Air Lines flight attendant wanted to do something about it. So Van Valin reached back to an earlier time -- her kindergarten years -- and pulled out the Crayolas. "I just put the mats on their trays and threw a crayon down, and the passengers immediately got it," she said.

You say it's not possible to win a jazz Grammy with an album that isn't out in stores, at the listening posts or available on Amazon? Think again. Composer and bandleader Maria Schneider did it in 2005 with "Concert in the Garden," as did Billy Childs in 2006 and Brian Lynch and Eddie Palmieri in 2007 -- all on the ArtistShare label. And Schneider has two more nominations this year for "Sky Blue," also on ArtistShare. "I was the first artist on ArtistShare," says the New York-based musician.

Question: I will soon be moving to a condo with my two teen-agers. The living area is small and open. It has one natural light source, a slider at one end of the room. How do I create a sense of areas--office, living, dining, etc.? I like Shaker and modern furnishings, and I'm not afraid to use color. ELIZABETH RUTH Answer: In your living area, mirror the wall to the left of your corner fireplace.
