1) The Super Bowl. Just kidding. I probably won't even watch it.
2) Baseball spring training starts, not that I'm looking forward to baseball itself.
3) The Oscars, February 24th.
4) February means that January is over. As I write this, in the evening of January 31, 2013, the temperature here in Minneapolis is minus-4 degrees Fahrenheit, the wind chill is minus-25. After January, the temperature might be just as bad, the snow might come, but it never seems as bad -- because we are past January -- Spring is within spitting distance -- we are over the hump!
