Puppy Bowl IV

My favorite part of Super Bowl Sunday isn't the game, the commercials or the halftime show, and certainly not the 14 hours of pregame coverage with its endless prognostications and dubious insights of self-proclaimed experts. Instead it's watching, with endless fascination, Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. (We have two cats - I like dogs, but only other peoples' dogs.) This recent phenomenon has grown to the point that even the dowdy New York Times has taken notice. Reading that piece, I'm pleased to see that they've added a halftime show to the broadcast - with kittens. Perfect, utterly perfect.
