1. The event/issue that inspired this cartoon is both the Superbowl and Ground Hog day.
2. There are no real people in this cartoon.
3. The Groundhog represents Groundhog day. The football players represent the Superbowl.
4. The cartoonists opinion is that people will forget that Groundhog day is happening due to the Superbowl happening on the same day.
5. I agree because I forgot all about Groundhog day and was only thinking about the Superbowl.
