Happy Groundhog Day folks, or Groundhog’s Day if you are from the Tri-state area. I know many of you are probably waking up to see what predictions the pundits are making for the big game tonight, but today there is only one prognosticator we should care about.
Punxsutawney Phil is the one and only famous groundhog from Pennsylvania. Go take a hike Gus.
Punxsutawney Phil has the greatest work schedule in North America. The guy works one day a year. ONE. You can’t beat it.
Philly gets to sit on his butt, while guys in top hats and tuxedos come and get him out of his lavish estate in Gobbler’s Knob. They hold him up like Simba, and wait to watch as the fans anxiously await to see if Phil will see his shadow.
It’s a win/win for ol’ Phil. He doesn’t see his shadow and the crowd goes wild, he sees his shadow and he goes back to sleep in his hole and plays full heel, maybe he goes out to see what the Punxsutawney Phyllis’ are up to. What a legend.
Salud, Phil baby.
BTW: Phil didn’t see his shadow today, here’s to an early Spring!
