Forget the Super Bowl, It's Puppy Bowl Time!
While backstage, I bumped into some of my friends from Animal Planet, including Dan Schachner, the new Ref for Puppy Bowl, the annual event that's the perfect thing for all of you non-sports lovers out there. Dan had just finished doing a segment of his own with some super-cute puppies.
Puppy Bowl is an oddly genius idea that started back in 2005 as a fun alternative to the Super Bowl. Essentially, it's several hours of puppies romping and playing on their own football "field." Never underestimate the power of cute puppies, because as silly as it sounds, Puppy Bowl is a big viewer favorite every year!
This year there are even more animals involved, including Meep the Bird who will tweet all the action from inside the stadium and a piggy pep squad that will "ham" it up on the sidelines and squeal with delight for their favorite pups. Yes, I said piggy pep squad.
In other words, Sunday can't get here soon enough!
Here's the Today Show clip about the Puppy Bowl and how you can help by adopting a pet.
And here's a promo video with all of the details about this year's Puppy Bowl, which starts at 3pm e/p. I will be watching!
