Yesterday of course was the Super Bo… er, the Football Match Whose Name We Can’t Mention Without Paying $1 Million in Licensing Fees. And around our house we did have the game on from time to time, but we were flipping between it and… Puppy Bowl.
This is the second year that Animal Planet has shown the Puppy Bowl, and I think it’s brilliant. It’s three hours of puppies playing on a miniature football field. That’s it. Puppies play, fight (in that fun puppy way), drink water, lick things, etc. It’s a wonderful change of pace.
Of course the idea for this isn’t totally new. The first I heard of it was on a This American Life segment about The Puppy Channel, which would run video of puppies all day long. As TPC’s site says, “Everyone feels better when watching puppies.”
