Weirdest thing...

So, I was going to Dick's (sidenote...if you're ever looking for Dick's Sporting Goods on the internet, what you might think is the address IS NOT the address...I know from experience) to get a scorebook for softball (not that we're actually fielding a full team ever) when I saw the strangest thing blow across the road...

a tumbleweed.

That's right, a tumbleweed blew right past my car. I know what you're thinking, they're not all the uncommon. Let me stop you right now...I was not in Back to the Future III, so I was not in the Old West.

Nor was I in some hillbilly town in the middle of southwest Texas. I was in the middle of a metro area where I didn't know tumbleweeds existed.

Now that I know they exist, I'll be on the look out for them the next time I'm driving, along with saloons and gunfights...especially at high noon.

I just typed in "www.dickssportinggoods.com" and it looks like the store to me. Is it some kind of scam?

That's the correct one, but not the one I thought it was the first time I went there...forgot the sporting goods part...
