If the Super Bowl isn't your can of beer (or you need a break), check out the counter-programming over at Animal Planet. Every year for the past nine years, the animal-friendly folks over there have offered up the Puppy Bowl for those of us who like to watch the Four-Footed Ones tumbling down a miniature version of a football field in pursuit of dog toys with absolutely no more on their little puppy minds than fleeting thoughts of a good time than chasing after those kittens who put on the half-time show. Because yes, kittens put on "the half-time show." This year, baby hedgehogs are the cheerleaders, and Meep the bird is tweeting the proceedings from the sidelines. Check out the activities--vote for an MVP (Most Valuable Puppy) and evaluate the expertise of the refs. Cute is on overload at this event, and it's all for a good cause--animal adoption.
This Super Species Event has nothing to do with media law, but it's great entertainment and finally the media now seems to be taking notice. More coverage here from the L. A. Times, ABC News. Puppy Bowl IX airs from 3-5 p.m. EST Feb. 3, 2013.
