psh, superbowl

Okay blah blah blah the NY Giants won the Super Bowl and poor Tom Brady etc etc...but let's be real, the Super Bowl has nothing on Animal Planet's "Puppy Bowl". I've seen several commercials the past few weeks about this alleged "Puppy Bowl" and I thought it was a joke but I flipped to Animal Planet today't. Can I just say how amazing "Puppy Bowl" is? PUPPY BOWL IS AMAZING. Basically, it's just a bunch of puppies running around and playing with squeekie toys on a mini pretend football field. Animal Planet even encouraged viewers to vote for a MVP (most valuable puppy)...I voted for Bria, the gray corgi. Okay, seriously, I couldn't make this up and have it be funnier, so I need to just copy and paste what I found on their website about the show:

Tired of the same old Super Bowl™ pre-game show? Looking for some excitement before the opening coin-toss? Before the big men in pads take the field for their gridiron battle, watch some players that are ready to rumble and "ruff" their way to victory. We've traded in linebackers for labradors and quarterbacks for corgis and we're releasing the hounds for PUPPY BOWL IV on Sunday, February 3, from 3-6 PM (ET/PT).

From baby beagles to mini dachshunds to mixed breeds — viewers are in for a fantastic lineup that's itching to play in a winning combination of tackles, puppy penalties and fido first downs. The renowned Harry Kalas, voice of NFL Films, returns to call the play-by-plays of this year's game.

For all the feline fans, the BISSELL KITTY HALF-TIME SHOW is back! The lively kittens show off their moves on a glittery stage and chase each other around the field. Tom Petty's performance has nothing on these tiny tabbies and cuddly calicos which prove that watching curious kittens batting around a toy mouse is all the entertainment you need. It's the pick of the litter for halftime shows!

And this year, viewers are able to see all of the frolicking like never before. For the first time, PUPPY BOWL IV will be broadcast in high-definition, capturing all of the thrilling action of our cute and cuddly pups in stunning clarity.

If that didn't make you LOLZ, you officially have no soul. It's even more funny actually WATCHING the show. You'd think that after 10 minutes of seeing puppies playing it'd get boring, but you'd be wrong! Animal Planet keeps it real by having a ref call for "puppy substitions" every once in a while as well as call out penalities like "illegal blocking of the water bowl" (because puppies need to share!). The Bissel Kitty Half-Time show is okay...not as cute as the puppies, but the concept of it is hilarious. There was a finale with lots of confetti showered onto the stage which the kittens had fun chasing around, adorable! The music and fake cheers from the "fans" also added to the overall hilarity of the show.

Oh, also, Bissell is having it's own MVP contest & I entered Tater Tot. When the voting opens for his entry date, I'll be sure to post the link so everyone can vote for him!

I have a cuter idea that can use the same name as "Puppy Bowl".

You would have 10 puppies arranged in a 4-3-2-1 format. Then you would throw bowling balls at them. If you knock all of them down you get a strike. You get 2 tries to knock them all down and the more you knock down the higher your score. "Puppy Bowl"
