Ready for kickoff

The day of the big game has finally arrived. Across America, fans will gather in front of the TV in their annual ritual. Food will be eaten, drinks will be guzzled, and players will give their all on the gridiron. Of course I am talking about Puppy Bowl V, a two-hour extravaganza of puppy play that will air repeatedly starting at 3 p.m. Eastern time today on Animal Planet. In addition to the rough-and-tumble puppy competition, the Puppy Bowl will feature a kitty halftime show. Let us pray that there are no wardrobe malfunctions.

The Puppy Bowl has revolutionized the broadcast TV industry, introducing technical advances such as the water bowl cam, which has been adopted by shows like "60 Minutes," "Nightline" and "Wheel of Fortune." And the big game continues to innovate: After this year's show, all the "free agents" will be available for adoption from animal shelters. So your favorite player just might wind up being your best friend.

I've loved the Puppy Bowl even before Ria arrived. This year we'll have to catch it on reruns because Ria wanted to watch the Steelers win.

I watched the Puppy Bowl for a few minutes...I did notice the pug Xander was kicking butt!

I watched way too much of the puppy bowl and agree with Nevis, Xander was bringing it out there. I voted for him for MVP on the animal planet sight, but he only has 3% of the votes! Once again pugism rears its ugly head...

Ria must be pleased, then.

Xander was, indeed, an impressive athlete, Nevis and Lucy. I also saw some fine plays by a beagle.

Thank you, Casa de Bonica. I am honored.

Peace be upon you, Daisy Dog.
