Puppy Bowl - friends forever

I'd been down and out with the flu and just when I'd had enough, a miracle came my way through a visit by my stepbrother, Patrick. Patrick had dropped by to bring me some soup that my Mom made and he stayed to chat for a while.

As he was about to go back home to watch the Superbowl, he asked if I'd ever seen "Puppy Bowl". Puppy Bowl!? Patrick explained that during the Superbowl, the Animal Planet channel has it's own version with a bunch of furry puppies playing on a field. The thought was too much to bear. My brain was about to explode.

I turned on Animal Planet and behold, the most wonderful use of television I could have ever imagined. I texted my friends with a simple "turn on animal planet" just hoping someone would watch it and love it as much as me! I got no replies. Later that afternoon, I got a phone call from my Mom. "Patrick and Tim said to tell you that they don't know what they like better, the Superbowl or Puppy Bowl". That made my day.
