Way to go Phil February 2, 2010

Today was Groundhog Day, and once again that rascal Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, indicating six more weeks of winter. And as depressing as this may be, this Minnesotan asks: What else is new? When was the last time you got excited about the onset of spring without simultaneously groaning about how long it would be until it actually happens? Everybody knows spring is practically a lifetime away, whether the land-pig says so or not.

But still, it would be nice if that furry little critter could just once give us some hope instead of despair. Maybe we could rename him Baracksutawney Phil?

Perhaps this is just a bitter rant against a poor little groundhog, but it helps to blame somebody. Maybe I should blame Al Gore for getting my hopes up that temperatures were on the rise. Sure the icecaps are melting, but my balls are still freezing.

Regardless, I will endure the prolonged cold just as I have done my whole life, with silent resentment. Minnesotans rejoice! We have six more weeks to prove that we’re tough, to prove that cold doesn’t bother us…..sure.
