Most of the reason I find it important to know when the Super Bowl is every year is that a much cuter event happens on the same day. This Sunday, February 3, on Animal Planet, I’ll be watching Puppy Bowl IX, a meeting of cute baby dogs to wrestle, sleep in the corner, and maybe carry a toy into the end zone for a touchdown every now and then. Honestly, I get so wrapped up in the cuteness that I forget that’s even the point of the game.
I’ve done a little research and compiled a list of the pups I think are most likely to win the coveted title of MVP (Most Valuable Puppy) this year. Winning such an honor requires a cunning blend of adorableness and athleticism. As cute as it is to see the lazy puppies napping on the sidelines, that doesn’t win games (but it wins my viewership)!
