The Super Bowl kicks off this Sunday, and we’re all placing our (friendly) bets. With a couple of native Marylanders (guilty) and a Mid-Atlantic-based employee in the house, we naturally have to root for the Ravens.* Of course, Hapy’s California upbringing has made him a Niners fan all the way, and his San Francisco teams have been a force to be reckoned with lately. *Well, Rob may be rooting against them since they beat the Pats. Traitor.
Here’s a quick guide to making the most of Sunday’s big game.
Like dogs? So do we. Billed as the “cutest sport event of the year,” Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl IX pits adorable puppies against each other in a mock football game with more family-friendly cuteness than you can imagine. Airs Sunday at 3PM on Animal Planet (check your local listings). Want more puppies? Check out Jimmy Fallon’s way to predict Sunday’s winner.
