As we start the work week, we'll have lots to talk about. The Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl. Phil, the famous groundhog, saw his shadow and it seems we got enough rain to last us for days.

Today in history, we look back at "the day the music died," the birth of "The Wedding March" composer, a couple of space memories and a few other interesting happenings through the years.

Here's to the new Super Bowl Champions and a safe week for all of us.
