Tom Brady and Eli Manning Are Cute and All,but These Puppy Bowl Contestants Score Much Higher In My Book

I love the Super Bowl,but really not for any reason related to football.My sister has a party every year and I'm more into hanging out,eating pigs in a blanket,watching the commercials (David Beckham in his undies?I do think that I will) and listening to my dad root for whichever team will win him money in his Super Bowl pool ("Go Giants!Go Patriots!Just get me a 7-0 at the end of the second quarter!").And leading up to the big game,you can bet I'm in for some Puppy Bowl action because those little furry fidos are the cutest thing on TV all day.Sorry,Tom Brady and Eli Manning,but it's true.
