It's that time of year again!!
It's time for the biggest Bowl game of them all... and I'm not talking about the Super Bowl!
Today, along with the Super Bowl, the Puppy and Kitten Bowls air, on Animal Planet and Hallmark respectively.
Puppy Bowl XII (12, for those of you who may not know Roman Numerals), and Kitten Bowl III are on today, and the Puppy Bowl is bigger and better than ever.
...They added a pregame show this year. I am not kidding.
And the hosts have dog pun names. Right now, they're interviewing a dog- wait, no, they're reenacting a play from last year. And the main host is grabbing toys in his mouth like a dog.
This is so weird. They're criticizing the puppies for "tackling" their own teammates. And they're going to make predictions on the outcome of the game!
There are puppies from previous Puppy Bowls there. Dear God, this pregame show is so weird- wait, CHICKEN CHEERLEADERS?!
Okay, the pregame show is over. Time for Puppy Bowl XII!
Oh, and let's not forget the purpose of the Puppy Bowl: ADOPT PUPPIES FROM SHELTERS! GIVE LOVING HOMES TO DOGS AND PUPPIES IN NEED OF THEM!!
That is, if you are able to. If you're unable to, that's okay. But if you can, and you want to, then ADOPT PUPPIES!
PSA over. I'll be back at the end of the quarter with a score update.
Current score (1st commercial break, during 1st quarter)
End of 1st Quarter
The commercial right now has a dog driving a car. Cute.
End of 3rd Quarter
They've started a Puppy Bowl Hall of Fame, too. They got a professional football player to come on the field and announce the pups who were inducted! It was so ADORABLE!!!
Go Team Ruff!
Now for the Kitten Bowl!
Oh, wait, the Kitten Bowl is structured differently than the Puppy Bowl. There are multiple games, and since I tuned in two hours in, I've most likely missed at least one game. I'll come back at five when it airs again.
See you in 45 minutes!

Okay, I'm back!
It's time for Kitten Bowl III!
There are three games: 2 playoffs and a championship, and four teams. The:
North Shore Bengals (blue),
Last Hope Lions (red),
Home & Family Felines (orange), and
Boomer's Bobcats (purple)
Yes, Hallmark's Kitten Bowl gives their teams both names and "locations". There are also celebrities in affiliation, including a WWE guy and who I think might be the older brother from Everybody Loves Raymond (Brad Garrett, according to Google).
The first game pits the Bobcats against the Bengals. One of the Bobcats kittens, Mr. Slippers, is a polydactyl (more fingers/toes than usual) with six toes on each of his front paws. So cute!!
So far, the Bengals are winning 7-0. Now it's 7-3, still Bengals.
Oh, um, I got distracted by the game, sorry. The Bobcats won! Go Bobcats!
Okay, it's almost eight now, and I had to eat dinner and take a shower, so I missed Game 2 (the Felines won) and most of Game 3.
Oh! By the way, Hallmark is doing a kitten Olympics this August!
So, it's past my bedtime now, so I should really get to sleep.
