little history on me. I attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) which is about a hours drive away from Punxsy (as it was referred to at school)
During my freshman year, I was housed in a co-ed dorm (floor I was on was co-ed as well). My roommate Scott and I became friends with two girls down the hall, Trina and Angel. Both were from Punxsy. and Groundhogs Day was a big thing for them. The night before, we loaded up on beer, hopped in our cars and made the hour drive to Punxsy, where we would get drunk and think of ways to kidnap the Punxsutawney Phil. unknown to the general public is that there are actually several groundhogs residing in a glass encassed area of a bank.
all in all, it was a fun time that we repeated each year until I transferred to Pitt. Even though I wasnt out at that time, it was always fun to go just to look at the Bubba's in the crowd, have a few beers with them, and stand there in awe of the furry men before me.
