And now for the sports news: If you don't want to watch the Super Bowl after you've read the Sunday paper (either in print or online), or if you'd like to fill out your Super Bowl experience with superb sportsmanship from other species, you could try out two other events. You probably already know that one of your alternatives is the Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl, back for its tenth year and airing at 3 p.m. Eastern time (with numerous repeats afterward). Yes, the Puppy Bowl has puppies--lots of them--and kittens, and various other denizens of the animal kingdom, including bunnies, hamsters, and Meep the Bird, who provides tweets (get it?) on the game. But did you know that the Hallmark Channel is providing an alternative to the alternative programming? Yup, it's the Kitten Bowl, premiering on Sunday at noon Eastern time. You can find out about the players, training camp, and the Fantasy League at the show's website.
