Winter's got you down. Your shoulders ache from shoveling and you've been spinning your wheels both literally and figuratively. Ease back into a chair and think about a beach -- a warm expanse filled with fit, lithe bodies hurling themselves across the sand for the spike and dig. If that vision lifts your spirits, then hie thee to the Spokane Arena on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 7 pm for the 2008 AVP Pro Beach Volleyball "Hot Winter Nights" Tour. Call 325-SEAT.

And that guy slumped in the corner? Tell him to stop boozing and start typing.
