Why the Puppy Bowl is Better Than the Super Bowl

Super Bowl 50 is upon us, and it’s going to be a wild ride. It could be Peyton Manning’s last game in the NFL, the Panthers could win their first championship in franchise history, and most importantly Queen Freaking Bey is set to rule the halftime show again. But there’s one game that is far more important than the big game itself, and that is Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl XII. Now, I’m not just saying this because I’m a Pats fan and wanted Super Bowl 50 to end with Brady getting a fifth ring and a Gronk victory dance; the Super Bowl can never compete with the Puppy Bowl and here’s why:


There are puppies, obviously.


You actually get invested in the game

Come on Albert, show ‘em what you got!


There’s no complicated rules or boring play-by-plays to follow; just pure magic.


There are no rivalries on the field


All the players are (somewhat) sportsmanlike


Although sometimes things can get a bit ruff (sorry couldn’t resist one bad pun) it’s all in good fun

The halftime show is the best entertainment you’ll see all week


Plus it’s not just puppies that take the field


Where else are you going to see adorable baby goat cheerleaders?

Not in the regular Super Bowl that’s for sure.


And since there’s no official score everyone’s a winner!


Best of all, the Puppy Bowl works with forty-four different animal shelters and rescue organizations across the country to get these adorable fluff balls adopted. Various groups like Animal Friends Humane Society and City Dogs Rescue provide all the puppies for this event; the Animal Plant even has a Puppy Bowl Hall of Fame to promote adopting older dogs. Giving these animals a loving owner and a home is definitely a cause worth celebrating.


So this Super Bowl Sunday make sure to kick back, get the wings ready, and wish you had this guy’s life.
