A Super Alternative to the Super Bowl


My husband is rooting for the Steelers this Sunday. And that would be fine, except I'd really rather that Pittsburgh didn't win this year's Super Bowl. Plus he tends to get a little vocal and overexcited, shall we say, about his sports teams. So rather than spend the day listening to him pout—or gloat—depending on the score, I might have to spend some time in another room doing something a lot less stressful.

Animal Planet has an alternative for everyone who's team isn't playing or just can't stand the sport— Puppy Bowl V. For the fifth year in a row, you can tune in to watch 20 adorable and adoptable puppies play while announcers comment on their antics. Once you've seen the first half, watch the halftime show to see some very cute kittens frolic on the field.

All the pets, as well as more than 270,000 others, are available for adoption at Petfinder.com, so if you fall in love with one of these precious players—and how could you not—you can search the site to find a new best friend. I'm certainly tempted to bring one home.
