Puppy Bowl V! Updated and BREAKING!!!

Pepper the Parrot sings the National Anthem.  Better than Roseanne Barr he is (though he misses the “land of the free” high notes).

Let the Puppy Bowl begin!

I understand some sports teams are playing, the Steelers and the Cardinals.  I thought the use of blunt objects was a penalty.

  1. They’re just getting warmed up and already these puppies are on the offensive!

  2. of the first 4 Puppy Bowls.

  3. Drink when you see the puppies.

  4. Enter the Dogs.

    Interestingly enough, there are female players in the Puppy Bowl, but no kittehs- except in the Big Kitten Half Time show.

  5. the end of the first quarter.

  6. The Meanest Matchup this Game has Ever Seen!

  7. are TOO cute.

  8. Fur Flying Action!

  9. Am I allowed to give you a hug? I like the little shepherd mix.

  10. The Beagle! Matilda!

    She’s got the defense running in circles

    2 More!

    A few more like that and you’ll be our most valuable puppy.

  11. you were not a “dog” man….

  12. Next- Bissel Kitty Half Time Show!

  13. chewing on another kitteh’s head.

    Aww….

  14. are gonna get dizzy….

    My cats are in the living room not the least bit interested in the half time show.

  15. they look a little unsure of what’s going on now

  16. Stay in your seats, the second half of Puppy Bowl is about to kick off.

  17. are not entirely unlike drunken college students at a beer bong bash. A bit more aware perhaps.

  18. showing why a dog might be a better pet than a warthog.

  19. Penalty call.

  20. The crowd goes crazy!

  21. It’s a puppy pile up on the 50 yard line.

  22. Invasion of the Fluffy Football Fidos.

  23. I missed the first play.

    Whatever shall I do?

  24. for tail biting.

    I am having a hard time picking an MVP though…

  25. is leading in the MVP vote right now…

  26. clicker thingy leaves on Monday.  Can not longer justify the outragous expense for nothing.  The remote survialist compound in the woods has completely melted down because “the bank” only presents the illusion of actually making a loan.

    Did enjoy playing with the Apocalyptic horses today.  It was warm, they are bored in the dead of winter so they enjoyed getting out.  I did not ride because I have no feeling in my left hand.  Fell down on the ice and smashed my hand.

    General Be-tray-us gets to toss the coin.  Still a nation of sheeple.

  27. the puppy channel where you can watch cute videos and stills of puppies 24 hours a day if you like.

  28. For your office pool.

    Shows you how much attention I’ve been paying.

  29. Up 10 – 0 at 2:10 into the second quarter.

  30. Discuss.

  31. when I visited Mom who does not have cable or internet. On regular TV basically every night there is either a CSI or a Law and Order or some variant of and they all started to run together in my mind.

    If I end up going home more often I am going to buy a notebook and bring some Netflix movies with me to watch. My Mom lives in Ontario and there is a provincial station similar to PBS called TV Ontario that had some good shows. I watched something about a giant wind turbine between two buildings that generated all of the power needed to run the building. I really wish I had been smart enough to be an engineer because it was fascinating.

  32. 83 yard drive.  7 – 10.

    • kj on February 2, 2009 at 1:48 am

    wrassle that pup!

    • kj on February 2, 2009 at 1:52 am
  33. dog was because I liked the tail biter and that is what they called him. They are pretty rare and vaguely related to the Akita and the Shinu Ibu. Jindos are from Korea.

    So. Learned something tonight.

  34. Last Play!  Under Review.

    Flag Offensive Penalty Declined.

    17 – 7 if it stands.

    • kj on February 2, 2009 at 1:55 am

    up next.  

  35. Wow.

  36. 17 – 7 Steelers.

    Spingsteen next now commercials.

  37. Another high production value ad.

    Good placement too.

    Next SoBe.

    Chuck 3D (NBC).

    wearing shades…

    • kj on February 2, 2009 at 2:10 am

    is on crack, or something.  

  38. rocked out high energy self. I would have preferred three hours of him and like 10 minutes of football.

  39. I wonder if somewhere on the web they don’t have compare and contrast videos.

  40. is these actors acting like concert fans.

    Very Meta.

  41. Tundra.

    Priceline.

    Surfing with Carlos.  Overstock.

    Kid with a green cape your inner hero Universal Orlando.

    LMAO syndrome NBC.  Production values.

    Back to the game.

  42. have to roll out a gospel choir in at least one number?

    Now. I actually like gospel. Weird for a atheist/dog worshiping/salad bar believer and I happen to live in a town rich in the gospel. Also Springsteen has a new CD out and Rolling Stone really liked it. Rolling Stone sis pretty much a geriatric music magazine now but I still read it. College Music Journal/CMJ is more cutting edge and Spin just has shitty writing.

    To answer your question ek, he definitely toned it down for the NFL but what can you expect he is going to play the hits, not stuff from “Nebraska” when it is prime time.

  43. and another Witch Mountain, with The Rock!

    And more NBC… TONIGHT!

    • kj on February 2, 2009 at 2:50 am

    ohhhh ejected from teh game!   he looked like my old pooch Hector!

  44. What was that?

    Heros NBC.

    Oh and 20 – 7.

    • kj on February 2, 2009 at 3:06 am

    Cardinals is the name of the St. Louie baseball team!

    this would be an outrage if i cared!

  45. Check your boxes.

    • kj on February 2, 2009 at 3:10 am

    that one guy’s hair?

  46. Local Advertising.

  47. ambulance chasing lawyer ad. Now that I am finally watching this boring penalty filled game the commercials also suck.

  48. Cash4Gold

    Was that for real?  Pawn brokers advertising in the Super Bowl?

  49. has been far more interesting than the football game.

    Good job, ek.

  50. Taco Bell is Sexy.

    Wizard of Oz, GE Smart Grid.

    • kj on February 2, 2009 at 3:27 am

    • kj on February 2, 2009 at 4:08 am

  64. You didn’t notice that Gen. David Petraeus officiated at the coin toss. I beg of you, dharmaniac persons, please explain to me how this is possible?  I am soooo very offended by this.
