Thursday Thoughts (Super Bowl edition): The Super Bowl, Doggy Style (and cookies)

this is Brandy, fresh from rehab she's expected to give a career-making performance

Disclaimer: I don’t give a teeny, tiny rat’s ass about the Super Bowl. Not being American, it’s just a game to me – and not a particularly interesting one at that.

I don’t know which teams are playing, I only have the vaguest idea of what they are playing and I certainly won’t be watching.

Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl however, now that’s a game I can get behind.

Check out the starting line-up here. Anthony has great form, I suspect Delilah has been indulging in some performance-enhancing drugs and they’ve probably all been snorting kibble off hookers in the changing rooms.

That’s why there’s no pugs on the field – if those monsters get a whiff of the sweet powder their eyeballs are liable to pop right out of their heads.

To see over 60 puppies compete in a game, commented on by a bird and cheered on by piglets (could it be any more trippy?!), tune into Animal Planet at 3pm tomorrow. I fully expect it to rock my world.

dogged (geddit?!) by scandal off the field, Fonzi has had a shaky start to the season

Every Super Bowl requires good snackage so it’s probably time we talked food.

It seems like everyone and their mother has a Super Bowl recipe out there this weekend so, rather than enter the fray and embarrass myself, here are some links:

  1. Nikki’s Healthy Cookies. Courtesy of the genius that is Heidi Swanson over at http://www.101cookbooks.com.
  2. Combining the best of sweet and savoury with Potato Chip Cookies at http://www.smittenkitchen.com
  3. Crack by name, crack by nature. Check out these Chocolate Crack Cookies from http://www.lickmyspoon.com
  4. These Apple Cinnamon Cookies from http://www.civilisedcavemancooking.com are grain free and really simple to make.
  5. And for another gluten-free option, I’d go with Triple Chocolate Cookies at http://www.elanaspantry.com
