Groundhog Day

Yep, it's that time of Year when throngs gather early Morn at Gobbler's Knob, Punxsutawney in this great State of Pennsylvania to witness a time honored spectacle: Groundhog Day.

For those unaware the tradition of ripping the Groundhog, named Phil, from His cozy resting place to one aloft dates back to the 1800's and predicts the coming of Spring.

 

This Years news was not good.

 

The look on the Gentlemans face in the image above is a little disturbing, I wonder if anyone's ever been bitten?

Not a good position to hold a Groundhog if he decides to take a dump after being so rudely awakened...

Seahawks will win the super hype bowl...

I was trying to make out what watch the guy was wearing .......but his facial expression is pretty noteworthy too.  Perhaps he's a Bulova enthusiast, and is showing of his watch with Phil....and wearing "safety glasses" as per OT's observation RE Phil's bowels.....
