Ground Hog Day 2020 Date Palindrome + Streaming the Super Bowl

This February 2, 2020, unlike other Groundhog days in recent past, will be an eight digit date palindrome. That is, strangely enough, 02/02/2020 written as 02022020 is the same number when written backward; it is still 02022020.

Football fans will no doubt be spending this Sunday watching the game. If you aren’t already set up, see our tips on how to stream Superbowl 2020 for free below. No guarantees, but it might work.

What is Groundhog Day?

Groundhog day itself comes from a Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog emerging from its burrow on this day sees its shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den and winter will persist for six more weeks. On the other hand, if the groundhog  does not see its shadow because of cloudiness, spring will arrive early.

Let’s review: A clear day with a shadow and you get six more weeks of winter. A cloudy day with no shadow and you get an early spring. But, you don’t need to remember this because studies have found no correlation to actual weather patterns.

A favorite movie of True Strange News is still Groundhog Day and we may celebrate by watching it for zillionth time.

For many, it is most importantly, Super Bowl Sunday, the 54th Super Bowl which will take place at Miami Gardens’s Hard Rock Stadium, home to the Miami Dolphins. The teams playing are the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers. Kick-off will be at 6:30 p.m. EST.

How to Stream Super Bowl 2020 Legally Free (Supposedly)

Here’s a tip if you want to Stream Superbowl 2020 and watch the whole thing live commercial free legally, according to TechRadar:

TVPlayer is a free legal online streaming service, which offers hundreds of channels. Among the channels you’ll find on offer at TVPlayer.com on offer is BBC One which will show the entire event live. And the best bit? The BBC doesn’t have commercials so you’ll be able to enjoy a totally uninterrupted Super Bowl live stream without a single commercial break.

The above only works if you use a VPN that lets you choose a server in the UK. It’s not available otherwise. I don’t actually want to miss the commercials because sometimes they are pretty good and this year there will supposedly be a special commercial tie-in to the Groundhog day movie.

Bill Murray is reprising his role as the cynical TV weatherman in a Groundhog Day Super Bowl commercial for Jeep, which has been spotted filming in the town of Woodstick, Illinois, where the 1993 comedy classic was first shot. It’s the kind of movie tie-in that Super Bowl advertisers, whose big-budget commercials have payed homage to many a classic movie, could only dream of because this is the year that the annual championship football game falls on the same day as Groundhog Day.

If creating a free account on TVPlayer.com and using a VPN is not your thing, try this: It’s just audio and scoreboard.


Not good enough?

Free Streaming of Fox Sports and Superbowl 2020 (Apple Devices)

If you have an Apple device, try the app called “TV App” and it will let you watch FOX Sports free with no sign up. At least it showed us a few seconds of the game then FOX commercials. It works, no joke.

Enjoy the day,
