Who doesn’t watch “Puppy Bowl? Well if you haven’t, you’re missing out. Puppy Bowl is broadcast on Super Bowl Sunday on Animal Planet and it’s a fun counter-programming effort. Basically it’s a bunch of puppies playing on a football field like playing surface. Wait, I hope I haven’t lost you yet, because it gets better.

Not only do you get the puppies playing the game (and don’t forget the badass water bowl cam), you get the kittie halftime show, the blimp with hamster reporters,and all new this year, the “piggie pep squad.”

Okay, so you’re probably going to watch the Super Bowl, but, if you can, record some “Puppy Bowl.”  It’s pretty funny, because you’ll think, “well, I’ll check out a couple of minutes of this” and before you know it, you’ve watched a half-hour or more. Trust me, I know how stupid all this sounds, but it is strangely fascinating.
