Puppy Bowl Pre-Game!

Well, sports fans, tomorrow is the big day. The day when the cutest puppies from shelters around the country will gather on the gridiron and compete to win the most important award ever—your hearts. Yes, at 3:00 ET, the Puppy Bowl returns!!

Obviously, I realize that most people (including myself) will be gathered around their TVs for the 6:30 game featuring big dumb animals of another species. But as a Steeler fan, I can't bring myself to start prognosticating or trash-talking because I'm very nervous. It seems like all of America wants the Packers to take home the Lombardi trophy. Whatever. Haters gon' hate. I'm just hoping that a little puppy power rubs off on my Pittsburgh underdogs.

And speaking of puppy power, say hello to this year's Puppy Bowl starting lineup! For maximum cuteness, click to enlarge the photo.

(Row 1: Amy, Big Red, Booda, Brownie Sundae and CB. Row 2: Charlie, Chih, Duncan, Jack and Jessie.
Row 3: Koda, Lindy, Louise, Maddie and Mae. Row 4: Max, Molly, Oliver, Patch and Pauly.
Row 5: Reenie, River, Rudy, Sadie and Savannah. Row 6: Shang, Suzie, Thelma, Two Face and Willy.)

As always, it's hard to play favorites when all of the mutts are so darn adorable, but I've managed to pick out my favorite players: Calvin (Border Terrier mix), Little Red (Shih Tzu/Beagle mix) and Thirteen (Pitbull mix). May they be named co-MVPs and then run away to my house, where we will cuddle forever and ever, amen.

I've already started trash talking the PACERS. (sic)

And those dogs are so cute! Does 13 have a patch around his eye like the Little Rascal's dog?

Way better than football. Tho gotta admite I am looking forward to the football themed episode of Glee.

Live in Wisconsin and hoping for a Steelers win! I cannot stand the Pack. My kids are so excited for the puppy bowl though.

I would even give those puppies some of my pig snacks, they are so cute. And nobody shares my pig snacks.

Lordy. It's too early in the morning for that much cuteness. However, I have to admit that Louise, with the floppy ears and big ol' eyes, immediately stole my heart. Soooooo cuuuuuuuuute!!

Love the puppies. Hope they don't have a bonehead Doberman in the bunch.

Sorry your Sunday was not all you hoped for, but at least they showed up in the second half


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
