Surprise.

The weather is still lousy. I woke up not feeling great today. Our first C League baseball practice looks like it might get postponed for the second straight week. I haven't even thought about getting our taxes started. Wade Phillips still coaches the Cowboys.

But I got a little lift when I stopped by our neighborhood Barnes & Noble this morning and slid over to the sports shelves.

That was a pretty cool, unexpected surprise.
