It's still technically winter, but after a 70 degree day today (a rare and welcome thing in mid-March New England), we've got winter on the ropes. He'll give one or two more good swings, but the fat lady's warming up her pipes, sap's flowing, spring is nearly sprung, and I'm feeling so exuberant, I just gotta dance.

Check that - I gotta watch somebody else dancing.

This comes from the movie Hellzapoppin', released in 1941, and it's considered the best example of swing dancing committed to film. Seriously, you're not going to believe the energy exhibited in this.

Someone tell me why ice dancing is a sport, but this isn't?
