Things That Are Cool: "Going Home"

My usual morning routine goes something like this: Get up. Bring Cooper downstairs. Try desperately to get him to laugh and/or smile. Give up when he makes it clear that all he's interested in drinking as much formula as humanely possible RIGHT NOW. Let the dog outside before she pees on the floor out of nervous excitement that someone said her name. Get Cooper's bottle ready. Sit down to feed him while watching SportsCenter. Pretty normal all around.

Today I added something new to that routine:

WEEP UNCONTROLLABLY ALL OVER MY NEWBORN SON.

Because that's what happens when SportsCenter plays a tremendous feature on soldiers coming home and surprising their families; you weep uncontrollably. See for yourself. Easily one of the best things ESPN has done in a decade.
