Happy Groundhog Day

It seems that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning (at a place called “Gobbler’s Knob,” which has to be some kind of joke) and thus we’re all headed for six more weeks of winter. I don’t know what Phil’s VORG is (Value Above Replacement Groundhog), but considering the rampant frostiness cloaking the Northeast recently, I certainly woudln’t have minded if he’d whiffed today. Alas …

If you’re interested, here’s a nice little piece on Phil – who seems to live a pretty comfortable life, what with this one-day-a-year job – and keep checking the blog all day. We’ll have a guest post on instant replay, some thoughts of mine to get the week started and the official trailer for tonight’s episode of “How I Met Your Mother” guest-starring Nick Swisher!

(Oh, and sources tell me that the Giants are close to signing Byung-Hyun Kim to a minor-league deal — we can have some fun with that, no?)
