No matter who you are, this thing called real life has a way of making things stressful.
What can we do about that?
Well, when in doubt, turn to some pups, or doggos, or puppies—whatever your name for them is.
And on Super Bowl weekend, we'll combine two things most people love the most—football and puppies—at Puppy Bowl XIV.
Puppy Bowl XIV Schedule

Check out the starting lineup gallery.
Personally, I'm a Barry fan. He looks like a nice boy.
Together, these dogs assemble from all over the country to help raise awareness for animal adoption.
From Florida to New Hampshire, these dogs are ready to put on a show.
The show is originally filmed in months prior and requires around 53 hours of footage—that's ruff!
OK, yeah, that was bad, but whatever.
Also, there is a halftime show, too.
This year, two viral sensations, Prince Michael and Phil the cat will perform "Meow Meow Meow"—a cover of the NSYNC hit song "Bye Bye Bye."
If you don't care about the Super Bowl or New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady seeking his sixth Lombardi Trophy, the Puppy Bowl is the right alternative for you.
