Matt Lauer calls 'bull' on Groundhog Day

The Midwest may be covered in snow, and the East Coast is still trying to dig itself out, but Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow this morning, so fear not: Winter is almost over. It’s not totally clear from the video that there’s any reaction from the wriggly rodent at all, but if a guy in a top hat says something is true, who are we to disagree?

But the best part of this year’s Groundhog Day? Definitely, definitely Matt Lauer’s reaction:

Ha! Between that and the guy shouting “six more weeks!” and we’re off to a very silly day.

Did you see your shadow this morning, PopWatchers?

    I think that groundhog saw his shadow because otherwise there might have been a riot!!!

    I love every year when people either boo or cheer a groundhog.

    Matt Lauer is a pr*ck. Some times you just need some whimsy in your life. You just have to believe that it’s almost over otherwise how could you stand another snow storm?

  • Jackie

    • gataroo

    Everytime I see Matt Lauer on TV, I turn the TV off and go back under the covers.

    My shadow is buried under too much snow to be seen… what does this portend, six more minutes before commercial break? That’s like an eternity on Today.

    Go Matt! After shovelling a never ending amount of snow in Wisconsin, I say BULL too.

      Agreed Jenz! I had snow drifts over my head this morning in Milwaukee. I cannot wait for spring, but I have a hard time believing it’s coming anytime soon!
