Puppy Bowl

The Super Bowl was a good game, but it paled in comparison to the Puppy Bowl that aired on the Animal Chanel at the same time as the Super Bowl. Bored senseless by the sedate commercials, promos for shitty Fox shows and terrible play-by-play analysis, the gang watching the Super Bowl at my house instead watched the Puppy Bowl during any breaks in the action. Incidentally, the next time Cris Collingsworth utters yet another inane bit of football analysis, he should be forced to eat glass.

The Puppy Bowl featured puppies playing with chew toys in a fake stadium complete with fake spectators and flahsing lights. Occasionally, they'd wrestle each other. The laboradors dominated, proving more frisky and athletic. They harrassed all other dogs, particularly this one terrier that had to be shoved into the action and ran away from the labs for most of its appearance during the contest. Innovative camera angles as well; the action from the bowl cam was gripping, as we watched several dogs refresh themselves drinking cool water.

The Puppy Bowl knew had to chose and air interesting instant replays, including one of this puppy scratching himself vigorously. He scratched good. Especially for a rookie; rookies are normally kind of nervous in a big game. Only one intentional grounding call, when one pup shit on the ground. Otherwise a clean game featuring some good puppy competitors.

What an awesome, innocent-but-slightly-subversive thing the Puppy Bowl was. As Joseph K can attest, our room full of testosterone-drunk men switched at every commercial break to the Puppy Bowl, hoping to catch an exciting moment on the drink cam. I loved it.

By the way, Joseph K can attest to this as well: Before the game, I predicted a 24-21 New England victory. Thank you. Thank you. No, please, stop with the applause. You're making me blush.

Indeed, I can attest to SS's prediction and appreciation for those puppies and their infectious cuddliness.
