"This is pitiful. A thousand people, freezing their butts off, waiting to worship a rat! What a hype. Well they used to mean something in this town, they used to pull the hog out and they used to eat it. You're hypocrites! All of ya! You got a problem with what I'm saying, Larry? Untie your tongue and you come out here and talk, huh? Am I upsetting you, Princess? You know you want a prediction about the weather, you're asking the wrong Phil. I'll give you a prediction. It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be gray, and it's gonna last you the rest of your life."
~~ Bill Murray, American actor and comedian, as quoted in the 1993 critically acclaimed film "Groundhog Day”

This year Groundhog Day is extra interesting because it lands right on Super Bowl Sunday XLVIII.

Punxsutawney Phil was his shadow earlier today, which means 6 more weeks of Winter. Wonder if it will it snow or rain tonight on Super Bowl. I wonder if this is an advantage for one team over another or disadvantage for both?
