Happy Dyngus Day!!!

Happy what now? If you aren't from Buffalo you probably have no idea what I'm talking about.

Dyngus Day is the inverse of Mardi Gras. As the President of the Chopin Singing Society in Buffalo once explained to me "Mardi Gras is the last blast before the fast. Dyngus Day is the first blast after the fast". In other words, lent is over and we don't have to behave anymore. When I lived in Buffalo, it was a good excuse to drink!

Anyway, there is baseball today, the Yankees have already lost a game, and the sun is shining here, so its a Happy Dyngus Day.
