Well, its supposed to warm to a balmy 32 here, I am so tired of being cold, which got me thinking about Groundhog day --
There is an official site, who knew?

Punxsutawney is just a couple of hours north of here, it a huge deal, but involves lots of drinking and revelery in the cold... I just need the rodent to predict spring!

Watch for the funny Bill Murray -Andie McDowell movie to be televised.
I featured "Phil" in my recent Pennsylvania Trivia w.p .

Due to its proximity to Pittsburgh, this years Groundhog day festivities in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania will start on Sunday evening around 10 PM and continue after Phil fails to see his shadow and annonces an early spring. This is one groundhog day that Phil Connors would like to relive again and again.

You might be interested in checking out the Tournament coming up - "You Know What Happens in Early February". You just might find some Phil-related material there!

Spacecat, what does that have to do with proximity to Pittsburgh?

Is that Superbowl Sunday maybe?

Sorry I should have been more clear. Punxsutawney is near Pittsburgh, so many people around that area are Steelers fans. It is Steeler country. The day before Groundhog day is Superbowl Sunday, a national time of feasting and festivities. The game should be over by 10 PM, if the Steelers win the next day is Groundhog day so why stop partying.
However there is always the flip side that the Seelers lose and Phil sees his shadow.
