Still hatin' because not only is it the most misspelled month, but it's the shortest one, too. February usually brings rain, sleet, snow and frowny faces. Stuck inside without our cars, I guess you're stuck reading Super Street. Look on the bright side: at least there are only 29 days of it.

Feb 1-29 National Black History Month. Let's take some time to remember some of the greatest individuals in history.

Feb 1 The late, great Rick James' birthday. Let's all slap someone and yell, "I'm Rick James, beeotch!" for the millionth time.

Feb 2 Groundhog Day. Let's hope the little furball doesn't cast a shadow, 'cuz we hate winter! www.groundhog.org

Feb 3 Super Bowl XLII. If anyone knows what XLII is, please let us know. Bust out the bean dip and soda pop, it's time to watch hilarious commercials and players knocking heads. www.nfl.com

Feb 5 Mardi Gras. Bust them hogs out; it's Fat Tuesday, baby. So serve up them margaritas and earn those beads! www.mardigras.com

Feb 6 Babe Ruth's birthday. The great Bambino Ruth was born back in 1895! Let's all enjoy the chocolatey, peanut crunch of a Baby Ruth in memoriam!

Feb 7 Chinese New Year. It's the year of the rat, so let's hope for a ratty year and lots of lucky money. www.chinapage.com

Feb 8 James Dean's birthday. The great man who showed the world that male actors can have a soft side. His death also proves that street racing can be fatal and that seatbelts save lives. Let's all support him by shedding a tear for his loss.

Feb 10 Chinatown Showoff. Los Angeles. Ask for red envelopes while polishing your ride up for the big C-Town showoff. www.showoffevent.com

Feb 12 Abraham Lincoln's birthday. That dude on the penny, good ol' Honest Abe was born in 1809. www.whitehouse.org

Feb 14 Valentine's Day. Give that loved one some hugs and kisses. If you don't have a Valentine, don't turn to Jack, Jose or Jim for help. It's not the end of the world; it's just another night with Palmela Handerson and some lotion.

Feb 17 50th annual Daytona 500. Bust out the beer, leftover pizza and hot wings. It's come a long way since racing on the beaches of Florida, but what have remained are the handlebar mustaches and trucker hats, wooohooo! www.daytona500.com

Feb 18 Presidents' Day. Be thankful Washington and Lincoln both had their birthdays this month! It's one of those holidays that you never know the name of, but you know you get the day off!

Feb 21 Jennifer Love Hewitt's birthday. Let's raise our hands and rejoice for this great day! www.jenniferlovehewittonline.com

Feb 22 National Thinking Day. Try doing something we all rarely do: think!

Disclaimer
People have a knack for making us look bad, so don't be surprised if events are changed to spite us, because we publish them beforehand! Despite the foul weather, February usually marks the beginning of the season, so uncover your donk and get it ready for some scrapin'. But before you bust out your '84 Cuttie or Skylark, make sure you double-check our dates.
