Greetings, sports fans. Sam here. Yesterday was Super Bowl Sunday in the U.S. and many fans cheered for their teams, the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots. The final score was 34 -28 with a shocking overtime win by New England despite Atlanta being well ahead at one point.
Our team wasn’t playing, so we really didn’t have a dog in that fight so to speak but we did howl with laughter with teams Ruff and Fluff in Puppy Bowl XIII. You can relieve some of the best-of-inside-the-bowl videos here or you can watch a sneak peek video here. And for behind-the-scenes smiles, check this out. We watched as three ‘pawdidates’ vied for most valuable pup (“MVP”) before the legendary game trophy, the Lombarki was awarded. Can you guess which one of these cuties was chosen MVP?
Was it Chihuahua-mix and football wonder, Daisy Moses; Wookie look-alike and Poodle-mix, Rory; or precious Nikita, a 3 touchdown scoring machine and Cocker Spaniel Bichon Friese-mix? The answer is revealed below. Hey, I gotta build up the
hype suspense, right?
The “Underdog Award” went to 16-week old Lucky, a 3-legged pup. Initially abandoned with her brother, Ricky, little Lucky got off to a rough start early in life when her front leg was broken after getting it caught in her crate. While her leg was amputated, it hasn’t dampened her plucky spirit. Way to go, Lucky! Word has it that Lucky was adopted from Operation Education Rescue, Tennessee.
Halftime entertainment had no wardrobe malfunctions with a pawsome performance by Kitty GaGa and the Chicago Rock Cats. There was no shocking finish like the Super Bowl as Team Fluff easily won, 93-38 setting a new scoring record. Following the conclusion of the game, Team Fluff accepted the “Lombarki Award” after losing the past two years to Team Ruff. Let’s hear it for the winning team, though I suspect every dog in the Puppy Bowl was a winner. We’re hoping all the participating pups were able to find fur-ever homes.
Did you watch Puppy Bowl XIII? Were you happy with the Super Bowl outcome?
Live, love, bark! <3
P. S. MVP award went to [drum roll, please]…Rory! We wish you a ‘wagnificent’ life with your new family, little girl!
