A Special Reminder

Well, it’s that time of year again. The noble savages of the National Football League have striven mightily and it has boiled down to two opponents in the annual championship game on February 1. The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals will face off in an epic struggle to determine the mightiest of the titans in their sport.

Some of you will be stocking up on provisions for the game and making certain that your view of the screen will be unimpeded. You probably already have your chips, dips, and other food stuffs common to the tailgate brigade all ready to go. But, as usual, there is a competitive event sharing the time slot this coming Sunday.

For those of you who can’t abide the sight of full grown adult millionaires knocking each other silly I have my annual suggestion. Turn on the Animal Planet Network at 6pm EST on Sunday and enjoy the thrills of the Puppy Bowl. Watch a variety of mutts and pedigreed pooches struggle for primacy in the possession of squeaky toys in a rough tumble all out struggle to capture the title of the “King of Kute.”

All the participants are subject to a severe age restriction (under 6 months) and the referee’s primary duty is keeping the gridiron clean. As usual there will be a “puppy cam” positioned upward under the water dish for intimate looks at the drinkers. The half-time show will feature a bevy of beauties from the kitty corral. Yes guys, they are as naked as they day they were born. Come to think of it, so are the puppies.

If football is not your cup of tea I heartily recommend the spills and chills of the Annual Puppy Bowl. I will be viewing it as an annual reminder that there are some things in life which are more important than professional sports. Enjoy!

In His abiding love,

Cecil Moon
