If you're an American and you haven't been living in a remote shack for 50 years, you're aware of the Super Bowl. If you ever felt like moving to a shack because you were sick of there being nothing to watch while the Super Bowl was on, though, you are definitely aware of the Puppy Bowl, Animal Planet's cute alternative programming to the Big Game that lets non-sports fans zone out to some adorable young dogs romping around with a ball, scoring imaginary points in an all-too-real game for our hearts.
