Princess-for-the-day Brooklyn Ludwig, 9, of Fishtown, looked dazzling in sparkling silver eye shadow and powder-blue-swirled cheeks. She and her prince charming - father George Ludwig - glided around the ice at the "Royal Celebration" opening weekend at Blue Cross River Rink at Penn's Landing. Daughters and fathers were in abundance, taking advantage of the many princess perks. Little girls made tiaras and had their faces painted and dusted with glitter as they waited for the Zamboni machine to smooth the ice. The "Royal Celebration" theme included visits from skaters costumed as Disney princesses, including Ariel and Snow White.

There is magic enough in Walt Disney's latest skating extravaganza for even the most savvy of youngsters. The special effects in Walt Disney's World on Ice - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which will start a two-week run at the Spectrum on Monday, are sophisticated; the props and costumes, bigger than life. And even though the skaters get disappointingly little show-off time, there are flashes of Olympic quality. Yet after all these years - after the Grimms' fairy tale of the gentle princess and the Disney animated classic that sprang from it, after technological advances that leave little to the imagination - the basic story of Snow White still captivates us. As Minnie Mouse says at the end of this latest production, "Oh, Mickey, that's such a romantic story.

Question: When is home-ice advantage a disadvantage? Answer: When the circus is in town, it's early June, and you're playing the New Jersey Devils. Let's explain. The combination of hot, humid weather and the weight of elephants and assorted other circus animals trampling over a protective sheeting that covered the rink, made the Spectrum ice squishy and bouncy Saturday night, and promises to leave it in like or worse condition for tonight's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final series.

The prosecutor said the drug called "ice," a pure crystal form of methamphetamine, was invented by the Japanese during World War II and used by kamikaze pilots who savored its day-long "high. " Last year someone tried to smuggle about 13.2 pounds of ice, worth $3 million, into Philadelphia on a passenger train, but the shipment was discovered by a federal agent in Albuquerque, N.M. It was the first, and so far the only, seizure of methamphetamine ice in the continental United States, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said.

On Tuesday, you could have played football on ice skates or gone cross- country skiing on the unplowed tundra that was Veterans Stadium's playing surface. Yesterday, there was a major breakthrough, following a day of plowing and ice chopping by city work crews. There was green to be seen. And yard lines. Unfortunately, plenty of ice remained visible on the artificial turf, which workers said would be softened, chopped and removed in time for the Eagles to work out inside the stadium today, as planned.

KHALIL ROANE should never have to carry another book through the halls of Ss. Neumann-Goretti High. His hands should be unencumbered, free to flip through his phone, look up stats and maybe even watch some game film. That's because the 5-8, 185-pound junior running back leads the city in carries. In the last two games alone, Roane has rushed 70 times (39 and 31, respectively). Oh, and he also plays outside linebacker. So, double-dipping must be tough, right? "It's not really hard," Roane said.

The Rowan University ice hockey team arrived at 6:30 a.m. for conditioning. While most students slept, the athletes did suicide sprints, lunges, and push-ups during an hour-long workout in the Rowan recreation center just over a week ago. It was a scene similar to any NCAA team workout, except this wasn't an NCAA team. Ice hockey is a club sport at Rowan, but don't tell that these players. "I don't think it should be classified as a club sport," said Alec Nicolai, a junior right wing.

IT MAY seem Dilworth Park just opened. The fountains are spouting, the Center City District is on guard to stop any rabble-rousers and the flowers are still in bloom from the park ribbon-cutting. But soon, those bubbling fountains will be frozen over to become a winter ice-skating rink. The new 11,600-square-foot Rothman Institute Ice Rink on the west flank of City Hall will open Nov. 14. "We are delighted that residents from across the region, as well as workers and visitors who have been enjoying the many amenities at the new Dilworth Park, will be able to have such a great attraction when the weather turns cold," CCD president Paul Levy said in a news release.

While it seemed hardly the weather Wednesday to be thinking of winter sports, ice skating is coming in just weeks to Dilworth Park, the city's revamped public square west of City Hall. The new Rothman Institute Ice Rink will open there Nov. 14, said Paul R. Levy, president and chief executive officer of the Center City District. The rink will be open seven days a week through Feb. 22. It will be managed by Rink Management Services Corp.

WHEN THE horn blew at the end of regulation on Saturday night and the Zambonis rolled onto the ice, there had to be an audible sigh of relief from the Flyers' bench. On the other side, the Canadiens had to groan at one of the NHL's new wrinkles for this season: a dry scrape of the whole ice surface by both Zambonis to scoop up loose snow. Coupled with the teams changing sides for overtime, forcing both to be at the disadvantage of a long line change, the dry scrape was put into place to create a faster surface of play and theoretically produce more scoring.

By now, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, a 29-year-old rookie who signed as a free agent, had hoped to have opened eyes in the Flyers' training camp - and be close to nailing down the fourth-line center spot. But an undisclosed injury suffered early in camp has limited him to just one preseason game. Bellemare, who grew up in Paris and played the previous eight years in Sweden, rejoined the team at Saturday's practice in Voorhees and said he felt "pretty close" to being ready to return to the lineup.

AT ONE END of the ice, Flyers prospect Nick Cousins was flying around like a maniac, trying to decapitate Washington Capitals rookies. At the other end, 6-7 first-round pick Samuel Morin was trading blows in a first-period fight with pesky Capital Liam O'Brien. Another tussle broke out only 27 seconds later, much to the delight of the more than 1,000 fans who showed up yesterday for the annual rookie scrimmage in Voorhees, N.J. "It was a high-energy game," Phantoms assistant coach Riley Cote said.
