First off, let’s talk about the most important bowl game today – Puppy Bowl. The show starts promptly at 3PM on the Animal Planet. If you’ve never seen the Puppy Bowl, you really need to watch it today. It is totally awesome and keeps me busy cheering for hours. Daddy has his game later today (which I’ll tell you about in a minute) and I have my game with the Puppy Bowl.
And don’t think that the Puppy Bowl is just about a lot of puppies on the screen doing nothing. There’s actually a referee, puppy touchdowns, penalties, timeouts and substitutions. That’s right – it’s a Puppy Bowl to see!
The rules are easy. Puppies go on the field and when a puppy drags one of the football shaped toys into the end zone, a puppy touchdown is declared. If a puppy has an accident on the field by ‘going to the bathroom’, a penalty is called. If the water bowls need to be refilled or puppies get into a fight, timeouts are called. And, you know what they call it when the puppies get into squabbles? Unnecessary rrruuufffness. Snorts. And if the puppies fall asleep, substitutions are sent in to play.
Over the years, they’ve had different ‘cheerleaders’. In the past, I’ve seen hedgehogs, bunny cheerleaders, chicken cheerleaders and my favorite in 2012 was the Piggy Pep Squad. Personally, I think they need to bring the Piggy Pep Squad back. I would *so* want to try out for the team. I think I have what it takes. I have the look. I have the chemistry. I have the personality. I can dance.
And you can’t miss the Kitty half time show! It’s going to be a blast for sure!
But if the Puppy Bowl doesn’t it do it for you, you can always wait for dad’s game later today at 6:30PM. THE Super Bowl. Two really good teams will be going head to head – New England Patriots vs Atlanta Falcons.
This year, we have extra shout outs for the Atlanta Falcons since they are our home team. Rise Up!! Who will you be cheering for? Are you pulling for Tom Brady or Matt Ryan?
And don’t forget the half time show on the Super Bowl either. This year they are going to have Lady Gaga performing.
And the other thing about the Super Bowl, you *have* to watch the commercials. They are usually the most hilarious commercials to remember for the night. So my friends, get your snacks and drinks ready. Go to the potty early so you can enjoy all of the fun today. Get comfy on the couch. I’m going to be watching the shows all day long. And hopefully, mom will pop me some popcorn.
Are you ready for some football!?

02/05/2017 at 7:54 pm
Nope you are not biased at all. Just remember Bashful knows his home team. Snorts with piggy Laughter. Hope you’re watching. Much love. XOXO Bacon

bro… I’m so sorry… that was more than bad luck last night… how can this happen??????? but hey GAGA was great!!!!
02/06/2017 at 9:29 am
Oh bro – Lady Gaga was most excellent. We so enjoyed the half time show. And really, you didn’t miss the commercials. We didn’t see any good ones at all. But the birds… shaking my head. So close yet so far away! XOXO – Bacon
02/06/2017 at 9:31 am
yes Gaga was fabulous… that is hard work to sing and to dash over that stage like a whirlwind… and the jump with the bungee rope… priceless!
02/06/2017 at 9:36 am
I know! Mom kept saying what stamina she had – all in heels! It was awesome for sure. Probably the best half time we have seen in some time for sure. XOXO – Bacon
02/06/2017 at 9:41 am
yes… so much better than the performance from last year… gaga is great… the mama would love to see her live once… even when she would be the oldest bat there LOL

It’s been years, but I agree – the Puppy Bowl beats the Super Bowl paws down!
02/05/2017 at 6:01 am
Mom and I don’t understand sports at all, but we do understand puppies. So it’ll be the PuppyBowl for us today. We will put the real football on just to see if we won any money!! Paws crossed….
Love and licks,
02/05/2017 at 7:55 pm
Please do. We watch both and love them both. Can’t wait to see who wins tonight. XOXO Bacon

Luff the Puppy Bowl, Bear and Sam.
02/05/2017 at 9:13 am
There’s a football game today? I thought it was all about a food orgy! What are you cooking at your house?
02/05/2017 at 7:56 pm
Hahah. We have watermelon, there was some pizza and a veggie tray. Yummy stuff for sure for everyone. And Houdini had football shaped biscuits. Can’t forget the little guy. XOXO Bacon
02/05/2017 at 9:15 am
Go Falcon puppies! Never missed a Puppy Bowl.
02/05/2017 at 7:56 pm
It was awesome!! It wore Houdini out. He’s sleeping now during the big game. XOXO Bacon

02/05/2017 at 7:57 pm
Enough said! Rise Up Falcons! XOXO Bacon
02/05/2017 at 9:42 am
The only Bowl I will be “watching” today is the Bedtime Bowl…. and you never know what to expect in dreamland. There might be squirrels or unicorns or clowns scoring touchdowns…
02/05/2017 at 7:58 pm
Or pigs carrying the football 🏈 down the field. You never know. You might even wake up and see that the Falcons won! XOXO Bacon
02/05/2017 at 9:42 pm
Well, I woke up and they were ahead by 16…… now 8. You can blame me if they blow it.
02/06/2017 at 9:27 am
Oh they didn’t just blow it – they BLEW IT BIG TIME my evil friend. Shaking my head in disgust. XOXO – Bacon

We don’t get animal planet, sigh! We will watch at least part of the super bowl or aka the Gluttony bowl in our house. Lady likes football even if she never watches it. She can’t stay up for the whole game, it is past her bedtime!
02/05/2017 at 7:58 pm
Snorts with piggy laughter. It’s past moms bedtime too but she’s making an exception since our home team is playing. Go Falcons! XOXO Bacon

I watch the Puppy Bowl every year. And repeatedly watch the videos about its MVP. Always makes me giggle like school girl. LOL 🏈
02/05/2017 at 7:59 pm
We love the puppy bowl. Houdini had a fit watching it and barking right along. It was awesome. XOXO Bacon
02/05/2017 at 11:46 am
I haven’t a clue about the rules of American football, but I’ll be rooting for your home team. The Puppy Bowl sounds equally as confusing. 😀 xx
02/05/2017 at 7:59 pm
She root for the team in red – Go Falcons. XOXO Bacon
02/05/2017 at 6:01 pm
I usually just watch it for the commercials.
02/05/2017 at 8:00 pm
We usually do too but this year since our team is playing we are watching it all. Go Falcons!! XOXO Bacon
