    The Saturday Post: Bowled over edition

    Last chance to stock up on the chicken wings and guacamole, for tomorrow is the much-anticipated bowl game.

    Question is, which bowl are you most looking forward to: the Super Bowl or the Puppy Bowl?

    I must admit, my heart's on the Puppy Bowl this time around.

    Play ball!

    Definitely, the Puppy Bowl. How absolutely I want a puppy!!

    Must admit I'm looking forward to a bowl of chili and bowls of snacks, too.

    Since my Broncos flubbed their chance to play in the Super Bowl, the Puppy Bowl, where every player will be my "favorite", sounds like the better choice for me.

    Even if I like football -- which I do not -- I would take the Puppy Bowl every time! I never watch the whole thing but it sure is fun! Happy Saturday!

    I'll take Puppy Bowl! I love puppies. Not so much football. But, I do love my football fanatic son and his boxer, Mookie. (Named for a basketball player. He likes basketball too. And baseball.)
