New Jersey groundhog predicts Chiefs-Saints Super Bowl

It's not Groundhog Day but the day of the 2014 Super Bowl will be so one news outlet had a groundhog pick the Super Bowl teams.

SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

I can't argue with the FACTS this New Jersey groundhog has provided.

The Star-Ledger in New Jersey noted that the 2014 Super Bowl is not only the first to be played outside in a cold-weather city, it's also the first to be played on Groundhog Day. Because of that, the next logical step was to bring in a groundhog and let it pick the two Super Bowl teams.

This sweet, sweet groundhog made its pick and, wouldn't you know it, the Chiefs and Saints were his choices.

If you hope to go to the Super Bowl, I would start making plans now. It's highly unlikely this groundhog is wrong. Call it science.

Also important here is that the groundhog predicted there would be sunshine, not snow. So don't even bring your jackets if you go.
