Observations On Puppy Bowl

I spent some time before Super Bowl 50 watching something called Puppy Bowl. Sadly, I can’t get those wasted minutes back but here are a few quick observations.

  1. I hate to be the one to rain on the parade here but Puppy Bowl is just a few small steps away from a full on dog fighting ring. And as if that wasn’t enough, they even have chickens for cheerleaders. Does anyone know if Mike Vick had something to do with this show?
  2. I have no idea what poor choices one has to make in life to find himself as the referee of Puppy Bowl but every parent should do all that they can to protect their children from such a career.
  3. At one point, the game had to be stopped when one of the dogs had an accident on the field. Referees had to do the exact same thing for the Atlanta Falcons at least six times during the previous season.
  4. I did the math and figured out that Team Fluff would probably beat Georgia Tech’s football team by at least 3 touchdowns.

I wasn’t a Puppy Bowl fan at first but as I gave it more consideration I came to realize that the show was actually a community service of sorts. All of the dogs end up getting adopted and the show gives disgruntled Cowboys fans something to look forward to somewhere around week four of the NFL season when their team is mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.
