It's April, right? Like, the month in which the crocuses pop up and the skies yield warm water every 20 minutes or so? The month in which, save for a few chilly nights, baseball is played at its proper temperatures, before summer stickiness sets in?

The Mets played Friday night in Minnesota in the snow, with the temperature 34 degrees at first pitch. Saturday afternoon the snow was gone, and the temperature had moved to an altogether seasonable 35 degrees. Sunday, more snow, game postponed.

I don't really know what sport this is, but it looks fun. Mets and Rockies have a day-night doubleheader today.
