PUNXSUTAWNEY, PA (Groundhog Day 2005) -- Sage, prophet and soothsayer, Punxsutawney Phil, emerged from his burrow on Gobbler's Knob this morning, began shadow boxing, and proclaimed in his native language -- Groundhogese -- that there will be six more weeks of training before Manny Pacquiao knocks out Erik Morales in their March 19 HBO PPV extravaganza at the MGM Grand's Garden Arena in Las Vegas NV!!!!
