Team Fluff or Team Ruff? Puppy Bowl fans had to choose a team for the first time ever in Puppy Bowl history. Also new this year, fans were able to follow along with an official scoreboard.
Cara, a MVP candidate and Team Fluff player, ruled in the first half with her slight aggression and two goals. It was clear she was a strong candidate for MVP (Most Valuable Puppy).
Cara’s reign soon ended though, with Team Ruff pulling ahead in the second half with Falcor, another MVP candidate, scoring. In the end, Cara won MVP (Full disclosure: We voted for her).
The show featured fun highlights such as the Kitten Halftime Show with a performance from Katty Furry (a parody of Katy Perry), looking very uncomfortable in her blue wig. Apparently her ensemble was created by a famous pet clothing designer who is known to have worked with Paris Hilton’s pets. Kitty Purry (Katy Perry’s cat) was originally approached but wasn’t available. We were disappointed with this year’s entertainment, last year’s Keyboard Cat was much better in our opinions.
The game also featured Dwarf Goat cheerleaders, who got a little rambunctious and ate the playbook (knocked over by a suspicious crustacean like leg, we suspect Patrick Star).
And how could we forget Henri, the French existential cat? While kittens hacked the control room during the halftime show, Henri shared his very dim views about humans and dogs. The kitties also showed funny cat videos before the puppies kicked them out. All in all, not the worst hack we’ve seen this year.
The Halftime show was sponsored by Bissell and their newest pet vacuum that magically cleans spots. What do we need to do to get one of those?
Other highlights included Bryan Adams scoring the second field goal in Puppy Bowl history. It was also the highest scoring Puppy Bowl game with 19 touchdowns. Meep the Bird was live tweeting the event, like he does every year.
Schachner also commented on his favorite camera- the waterbowl cam.
Other notable moments was when he explained how he got the job originally, the addition of cats to the show, and the allegations that the kittens at the Kitten Halftime show were on catnip.
Team Ruff pulled ahead in the second half and ended up wining 87-49 against Team Fluff. We were sad to discover this year that the Puppy Bowl is a prerecorded event and not live. I know. #PuppyBowlScandal2015.
The Puppy Bowl, per usual, was a fun, “warm up” game to the Super Bowl. We enjoyed watching and tweeting about the game. Did you watch?
