Today is (Also) Baby Starfish Day

It was three years ago today (and a short time after Bwog’s birth) that an intrepid photographer captured the mythical Snow Baby Starfish on film for the first (and, tragically, only) time while the creature posed on College Walk in the newly fallen snow.  We’d like to take this opportunity to share the pink-cheeked love with a whole new crop of readers.  Enjoy!
