One day, when the world is looking back at the 2000’s, do you know the one sporting event that will stand out to them more than any other? You may want to think Super Bowl. That is okay if you think that. But no. The reality is, there will be NO single sporting event in U.S history that will stand out to them quite like archival footage of the glorious and never-less-than-epic Puppy Bowl. The Super Bowl of cute. So before the new Puppy Bowl is played, we wanted to take a moment to look back on some of our favorite moments from Puppy Bowls past. Today, we walk the hallowed halls of the Puppy Bowl hall of fame. Only the greatest of the great, and the cutest of the cute roam these halls.
The fist thing I want to talk about is the hamster blimp. The blimp that watches over the game is run by hamsters. That alone, may be the greatest thing ever, but it only gets better and better from there. Also, there’s pigs. Pigs, hamsters, and puppies. What kind of weirdo would not find this adorable and awesome? It is all the bravado of conventional sports, only made about 100 times cuter and more accessible to all.
Actually, we just wanted to take a minute and shout out Animal Planet for getting and assembling this archival footage. I mean, we have all the Puppy Bowls on tape, but they made it easier by going through all the footage, so a huge thank you to them.
You watch this, and between all the ohhh’ing and argghhh’ing, it hits you. At the heart of this is an epic sporting event. An epic sporting event covered in fur and absolutely at its most adorable. Also, hamsters in a blimp. Seriously. I cannot get over how awesome that is.
So are you guys getting pumped up for Puppy Bowl X? We sure are. Some people like the Super Bowl, but not us. We are pure Puppy Bowl kind of people. Stay tuned to Puppytoob for more awesome articles leading up to the day of the big game!
