This weekend has a little bit for everyone. On Sunday we have Super Bowl 47. The collision of the coasts has the AFC Baltimore Ravens taking on the NFC San Francisco 49ers. To top it off, the respective head coaches are brothers! That is a first in the NFL’s history. I’ll pass on my predictions below. Some folks, however, don’t follow football. On Saturday, they get to enjoy waking up long before dawn to watch a groundhog determine how the rest of winter is going to play out. You see, if the little rodent sees his shadow, we up here in the North get 6 more weeks of winter. This is but one reason why we shoot these varmints when we see them. This little rodent, known as Punksetawny Phil, will arise with much fanfare and anticipation on Saturday morning to pass on his normal bad news.
These times will be a nice break from all the doom and gloom of politics, the economy, and the off the wall stuff that all of that brings us. Good Luck to the Super Bowl teams. Enjoy Groundhog Day (would someone shoot that critter already). But most of all, be safe out there. It’s a dangerous world full of cops, politicians and woodchucks.
