Even if the words “Super Bowl” have you imagining a giant salad bowl rather than the biggest football game of the year, this weekend has something for you.

True, pretty much all of Sunday, February 2, will revolve around the Denver Broncos vs. the Seattle Seahawks match-up in New Jersey, but that’s not all bad. In fact, we have the grass-stained, injury-prone Super Bowl to thank for one of the most adorable events known to mankind: the Puppy Bowl!


You read right. On Sunday starting at 3 p.m. EST, Animal Planet is giving the whole TV watching world a gift with their tenth annual “alternative” Super Bowl. For two solid hours, you can watch adorable puppies frolick on the field as they compete for cutest in the land.

Also on the schedule, a kitten halftime show, penguin cheerleaders, and a special performance by Bruno Paws. Just kidding. Internet darling Keyboard Cat will be the one on stage! Sound like a perfect afternoon? We couldn’t agree more but be sure to leave behind the foam finger. That’s just a chew toy in waiting.

Whatever Bowl you watch, be sure to Viggle. This is a prime opportunity to score (see what we did there?) major points toward some fantastic prizes. Go for the touchdown, head home with the points!
