Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I’m your humble doggie host Chester L. W. Spaniel.
I have been hearing more and more about this Super Bowl thing. I have found out that it’s not a big bowl of food, although lots of food will doubtless be consumed that day. Actually, it’s a big championship football game. My esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel and I have been trying to study football, and still fail to understand all the rules. As far as we doggies can tell, the game involves getting a special squeaky ball to one end of the field or other, while the teams try to stop each other from doing that. But that doesn’t mean we begrudge our humans their enjoyment of watching football, despite the fact that our male human always starts yelling and stomping angrily at some point of the game. We doggies usually go and hide when that happens.
If your human doesn’t watch the Super Bowl, he or she might watch the Puppy Bowl instead. This is live coverage of puppies playing inside a big bowl-shaped yard with fake grass in it. Joey dog and I would prefer to watch this, and are hoping we get to see some Cocker Spaniel puppies.
We’ve also heard that there will be several extra wonderful, fantastic, outrageously funny, block-buster television commercials shown during the game. From what we see in the media, we might think these ads are even better than the game itself. As a matter of fact, the companies who made these ads will pay millions of dollars to have them aired during the big game. This boggles my mind because usually humans hate commercials. And that's a memo.
