Forget Super Bowl XLVII, Puppy Bowl IX Is Where It’s At (VIDEO)


I’m not exactly what you’d call a football fan. But dammit, I love puppies.

So, imagine my joy when I discovered that instead of sitting down to this year’s Super Bowl XLVII with a bag of pretzels and overzealous fans of the pigskin, I could get my cute on with Puppy Bowl IX. That’s right: puppies playing football.

There have been eight others before this? Where have you been all my life, Puppy Bowl?

Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl IX starts at the same time as the other, less cute football bonanza:  6 p.m. EST on Sunday, February 3.

I’m not too sure if any of the official Super Bowl rules apply to its puppy counterpart, but I’m 100 percent sure it’s going to be mind-blowingly adorable.

Catch the action next week. Until then, watch these puppies play football.
