One Of Them Has More Actual Pooping On The Field, But Probably A Better Half-Time Show.

February 5, 2012


Hm… gosh… what to make this week’s Weekly Question Of The Week about… Ummmm…. Jeez…

If only… if only there was something happening today… something that’s a big, national event here in the US that people had to pick sides over… then… then I’d have something… Hmmmm… Oh, wait, isn’t there some sort of televised sporting match today?

Basically, you have one of three options to root for today:


  • Advantage – Brady and Belichick
  • Disadvantage  – As a kid, living on the west coast, when learning geography, inevitably you’d spend  frustrated time trying to figure out where the state of New England was on the map.  The image of all those distressed kids, crying over their blank little maps has to weigh pretty heavily on them.


  • "Oh God! Those guys are coming right at me! Hit 'em with the bat! Guys??! Hit 'em with the bat!""

    Advantage – beat the Patriots once this season on the home turf.  Also, Manning.

  • Disadvantage  – Frankly, I don’t know how the San Francisco Giants got in this thing, but I just don’t see how they can expect to hold up.  I guess they do have bats.

Puppy Bowl

  • Advantage – Puppies.  Also when one of them poops and they call a foul??  I don’t care who you are.  That’s adorable.
  • Disadvantage – Trying to get people to change the channel.  (suggestions: 1. “Hey, my friend’s dog is in the Puppy Bowl and I promised to watch for just, like, an hour or two” 2. “You know what’d be ironic and funny of us?  To watch the Puppy Bowl right now.  Wouldn’t that be hilarious?  Wouldn’t it?” 3. “Oh my God!  A terrorist is on the phone and he says if we don’t watch the Puppy Bowl he’s going to blow up the Internet!”)


Who are you supporting this Super Bowl Sunday: Patriots, Giants or Puppy Bowl?

    Puppy bowl!! But, when our next door neighbors ask, we’ll say “Patriots”. They’ve invited us to their Super Bowl party, and they have awesome food. Go Patriots!! (go puppies!)


  3. k8edid Says:

    Definitely Puppy Bowl….I’ll watch with Shelby.

    The commercials are always the best part of the SuperBowl, and now you can see those ahead of time on the internet.

    ….I heard Bechham has an underwear add….

    I’m supporting the folks at NBC who need to figure out how to clean up their satellite signal. And I’m supporting the Indianapolis Children’s Choir, from which 45 kids are singing the National Anthem with Kelly Clarkson. I used to belong to that choir, 20+ years ago. Best experience of my life. I’m so proud of them for getting this gig!

    I am NOT supporting the people who decided to do these “love story” vignettes on the players. Blech. I love love and all, but this is football. If I see Tom Brady and Giselle Bundschen, I’m gonna throw things.


  6. Deborah the Closet Monster Says:

    Now that I know there’s a Puppy Bowl, I’d be all over that–if, that is, it didn’t correspond with Get Our Taxes Done for Free by A Friend Of The Family Day! 😀


  7. alleybeth Says:

    Puppy Bowl. How could you not?


  8. booksnob Says:

    If I am forced to choose, it will be puppies. I’m still bitter GB didn’t make it, so I’m boycotting the super bowl on principle. See? I won’t even give it proper noun status. Today is just another Sunday, but there are fewer options than usual.


  9. secretlyhardcore Says:

    Puppy Bowl would be even more enticing if they used a real live mouse instead of a ball. I’m just sayin’…


  10. becomingcliche Says:

    Why is it that when I poop when I’m playing, no one says it’s cute? No one.


  11. Deli Lanoux, Ed.D. Says:

    Well, I was rooting for the Giants, of course. But, when things started getting too antsy for me, I left the room to come play games on the computer… until… the last three minutes plus of the game.

    I ran back in and stood there practically holding my breath!!!

    OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! Will they? Won’t they? Oh, my gosh!!!

    Then… ahhh… yes!!!! Hip, hip, hooray!!!


  12. cassiebehle Says:

    The Puppy Bowl was off the hook this year. I mean, did you SEE Fumble??? Case closed.


  13. edrevets Says:

    Use a puppy for the football and boom you have a super puppy bowl. You’ll need replacement puppies.


  14. gojulesgo Says:

    Now. I just said if your next post was any cuter than the last… Lying down now.

    The Puppy Bowl is amazing. That combined with watching girly movies while my husband went to a Super Bowl party? Gooooo San Francisco!
