Did Phil See His Shadow Today – Punxsutawney Phil Battles Accuracy

Did Phil See His Shadow Today - Punxsutawney Phil Battles Accuracy



LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Did Phil see his shadow today? Punxsutawney Phil, aka the notable Groundhog from Gobblers Knob, saw his shadow today. So in keeping with tradition, Punxsutawney Phil is predicting six more weeks of winter for 2012. But before you wonder if Phil saw his shadow, you might consider what New York news reporters are saying about his competitor: Staten Island Chuck. And while the West Coast has never been able to develop an equally fascinating groundhog prognosticator, Phil’s accuracy is under fire, yet again today, but weather news reporters.

Punxsutawney Phil did see his shadow today. But Staten Island Chuck did not see his own shadow. Phil “says” more winter, Chuck “says” an early spring. For the last three years, these two groundhogs have battled over accuracy of their predictions. Phil’s supporters claim he has a one hundred percent accuracy. But news reporters remind readers today such is not the case. Phil’s accuracy has fallen to a mere thirty-nine percent in recent years.

And while Phil might dominate news every February 2, perhaps the best international animal predictor this decade still remains the late Paul The World Octopus.

In 2010, animal “analysts” are amazed by Paul. The German octopus consistently predicted his own country’s advance through the World Cup. Paul predicted from his aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany correctly that Germany would defeat Ghana in the World Cup. And ironically, he predicted that his own country would fall to Serbia earlier in the World Cup rounds.

And while Paul dominated news in the 2010 World Cup, he got his start years earlier. He was correct at predicting eleven of twelve games in the 2008 European Championship.

As Phil today returns with a mere thirty-nine percent accuracy about our weather, Paul had a near one hundred percent accuracy about soccer games. The animal oracle was so accurate, and became so popular, that even other animal oracles reported got “enraged”. In 2010, in Singapore, Mani “The World Cup Parakeet” got its feathers into a bunch over a disagreement with Paul’s predictions.

But in October, 2010, Paul passed. Paul died of natural causes. A burial plot and permanent shrine have been erected to honor the fallen psychic octopus who predicted the 2010 World Cup champions. For more about today’s Groundhog Day prediction results, click HERE.
