Punxsutawney Phill Starring Groundhog Day 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. — To the relief of the winter-weary, the world's most famous groundhog predicted an early spring Wednesday.

Hal saw his shadow at 7:25 a.m., contradicting predictions of an early spring made by New York City’s Staten Island Chuck and the nation’s foremost groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil Pennsylvania, who started the 125-year-old tradition.

But we continue celebrating this day each year, even though it really does nothing for us. Heck, research data shows us the groundhog is wrong more often than it’s right. The National Climatic Data Center reported the overall predictions accuracy rate is around 39 percent for groundhogs, which would make them Hall of Famers in baseball and unemployed in any other profession.

It might still be football season, but the National League of Baseball was established 135 years ago today.

After all, if you were told you no longer had to perform your volunteer job in front of a large crowd of onlookers in freezing cold weather, how much of a fight would you put up?
