Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal is encouraging all state employees to wear red and black Friday to celebrate the Atlanta Falcons as they head to the Super Bowl.

Deal read an official proclamation declaring Feb. 3 as “Falcons Friday” in the State of Georgia.

He also noted that General Beauregard Lee, Georgia’s Groundhog Day prognosticator, not only predicted an early spring this morning, he also predicted a Falcons win on Sunday.

“I never knew that groundhogs were such football fans,” said Deal. “But I am sure he’s going to be right in his prediction about the game, and I certainly hope he’s right also on the prediction about an early spring.”

The Falcons meet the New England Patriots Sunday in Houston for Super Bowl LI.
