It's Groundhog Day.....does anybody care?
I know for the folks in Pennsylvania, Groundhog Day is a big deal, mostly because of marketing and paraphernalia opportunities. They make a huge deal and have an hours-long run-up to the big reveal, only to have to drag this poor creature from his hutch and pretend that something happens, when those guys have already pre-written the declaration of the weather.
I guess the whole production brings in a lot of money to the town of Punxsutawney but, for me it's unwatchable TV. Just sayin'.
