Why would you feel sorry for this animal? He's probably one of the most pampered in the world, perhaps better off than some people. So, he has to be held up in front of thousands of people and look at cameras flashing at him once a year. That's not reason to feel sorry for him. From the looks of him, it doesn't look like he's missed a meal. He even looks like he could miss a few and still be alright.
Dude calm down
Anon 7:48:You're exactly right. I even think my cat is jealous of Phil.What a life!!
Punxatawney is a stupid word and the fat guy holding him is stupid along with the stupid hat he's wearing. It's all stupid.
To anon 9:09:If it is so stupid, why are you wasting time writing about it. No one is forcing you to watch the ceremony. It's a tradition that is fun for children and adults to watch.Lighten up!! Enjoy the little things in life.
Anyone else think this site is being overrun with teenagers?I'm sorry, but the posts seem to be getting more and more immature in nature. Go back to your teen chat boards and leave us alone. AND:anon 8:00 a.m.- This "dude" is calm. I was only making good conversation as disagreement to BG's comment in the blog post. 9:09, sounds like you need a little love in your life. It's sad when you sound that bitter over a rodent.
I grew up in the Punxatawney area and the ground hogs have crippled many of the cattle in the fields. They would step in the holes and snap thier legs.We used to sight in our deer rifles on the Ground hogs. You would be suprised what a Hollow Point can do ....
That's why I said that Phil is one lucky ground hog.
If I may add ....Even though we shot that little rodent .... we still respected whether he saw his shadow or not.He really would determine our planting at the farm and lift our spirits. Until you have lived in the cold and snow its hard to relate :)
