Rock Chalk Talk 2.10.10

Mario's Miracle Admit it - your workday is off to a better start already, isn't it? It's amazing what one little picture can do for you.

The Rock Chalk Talk links post makes a comeback this morning, because there is a particularly good crop of articles to be shared, read and discussed today.  That's probably how this will go from now on.  I'm a night owl and get my Tweets on Twitter (follow me @KCsince88) every night when new articles get posted.  I read them all, I tell you if there are any worth reading.  If there's only one or two, I will likely just FanShot them.  If I miss any good ones that you catch, do the FanShot yourself, please.  Also, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all of my fellow Rock Chalk Talk members, and all Jayhawks everywhere, a Happy Umbrella Day!!!

Today's Birthdays - actor Robert Wagner (80), 1972 Olympic seven-time gold medalist Mark Spitz (60), actress Sharon Stone (52) former Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra (47), radio and TV host Glenn Beck (46), former Rockies catcher Claude "Jayhawk" Owens (41), Astros firstbaseman Lance Berkman (34) and finally, Royals thirdbaseman Alex Gordon (26)

On This Day in: 1996, IBM's computer, Deep Blue, beat the world chess champion, Garry Kasparov, in the first game of their match.
