WASHINGTON â€” Talk about a summit in the making.
Friday, the White House announced that President Obama would be visiting â€ścentral Pennsylvaniaâ€ť next week â€” specifically, Feb. 2 ... Groundhog Day.
Could it be that the President of the United States and Punxsutawney Phil are getting together for a meeting of the minds during Americaâ€™s Second-Favorite Holiday?
What would they talk about? Health care? The economy? Using some of Punxsy Philâ€™s life-extending elixir for that upcoming 2012 election?
Donâ€™t count on it.
GREEN BAY, Wis. â€” Current Green Bay Packers center Scott Wells wasnâ€™t sure what to think of Brookville when he was 10 years old. The adjustment to living the small-town lifestyle was a lot different from what he was accustomed to in his native Texas.
He loved the aggressive, physical nature of the football he played in Texas, but after he moved to Pennsylvania, he couldnâ€™t play his style of football anymore. No one in Brookville could, because there wasnâ€™t an opportunity to play tackle football at such a young age.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Meet the Prutznal family of Punxsy: Parents Dan and Peggy, sons Shane and twins Landon and Luke, and the youngest, daughter Maggie.
Not a Steelers fan in the bunch.
But if you look closely in the familyâ€™s basement, youâ€™ll find plenty of gold, but the color accompanying it is not black; itâ€™s green.
Also in the basement, youâ€™ll likely find Dan â€śThe Packer Man,â€ť working on some hand-crafted Packers swag and decorations in preparation for Green & Goldâ€™s appearance in Super Bowl XLV against the Black & Gold, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
