I think it was at last year's Superbowl party that we watched Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl, which was far and away my favorite part of the Superbowl. What I didn't realize was that all of the puppy players are from shelters.
I'm looking forward to seeing Eli, Elvira, Griffey and Shroder (in order from top to bottom) play some serious football.
Never seen the puppy bowl? Take a look at last year's game. And if puppies aren't your game, there's also the kitty halftime show!
