Ohio baseball team's bus crashes; 6 dead. "A charter bus carrying a college baseball team from Ohio plunged off a highway ramp early Friday and slammed into the pavement below, killing six people, injuring 29 and scattering sports equipment across the road, authorities said. The bus, carrying the team from the close-knit, Mennonite-affiliated Bluffton University, toppled off the Northside Drive bridge onto a pickup truck on Interstate 75 shortly before dawn, police spokesman Joe Cobb said. 'It looked to me like a big slab of concrete falling down,' said truck driver Danny Lloyd, 57, of Frostburg, Md. 'I didn't recognize it was a bus. I think when I saw the thing coming, I think I closed my eyes and stepped on the gas.' "

The Ten Best Box Office Performances of 2006: "These are the movies that impressed the most based on contextual factors, such as genre, marketing and expectations. This is not a list of the highest grossing movies, which is why such titles as Cars, X-Men: The Last Stand, The Da Vinci Code and Superman Returns are omitted—while popular, they weren't exceptional compared to their anticipated ranges."

Its nearly $40 million gross may not have entranced the box office but it was about $39 million more than forecasted").
