Enough with the bad news, for at least a few hours.
Today, you are allowed to walk around work with a smile on your face. Today, you can wear your WSU garb to work, and your coworkers will actually understand why you're proud to be a Coug.
Because today -- today, my friends -- is the day that college basketball season begins at Washington State University.
Enough with the historical losing. Enough with the embarrassment. At 5 p.m. PDT, with the business-like atmosphere we've come to expect from Tony Bennett, the Cougar basketball team officially opens practice.
With it, comes hope. With it, comes the promise of something better.
Happy Cougar Basketball Day.
