Cat Predicts Super Bowl Winner

By Max

Three years in a row since 2009, the cats in a shelter run by the Cat Adoption Team in Sherwood, Oregon, have correctly picked the winning Super Bowl team. This year, can a calico named Sue Bee extend their streak to 4 years? Watch how she does it. (The gabby human in the helmet is pretty annoying. The prediction comes at the end, so feel free to skip ahead.)

OK, if you didn’t watch the video, Sue Bee picked the Patriots. Cats Working concurs because Karen is from New England, although we’ll have to read about the winner in the paper tomorrow because we’re not watching the game.

Karen tells us football is the only sport that makes men’s figure skating look macho. Why are so many Americans willing to spend hours watching grown men throw themselves to the ground on top of each other and dry hump? When the guys finally get up, they grab each other’s butts. The real sports action (running, throwing, kicking a ball) is sporadic and too brief.

You can understand why Jerry Sandusky was drawn to football. It’s like a puritanical form of gay porn that “regular” men don’t have to feel guilty watching. If the players didn’t wear helmets, they’d probably exchange chaste kisses (with a penalty for tongue — just to keep it “clean”) after every “play.”

Instead, we’ll be watching Puppy Bowl VIII on Animal Planet at 3 p.m. (ET). Yes, it’s dogs, but if any of them start humping, you’ll know it’s just innocent fun — they’re PUPPIES!

The Super Bowl can keep its stupid commercials and Madonna. Cats will be cheering for the Piggy Pep Quad and the Kitty Half-Time Show.

    Well,Max,looks like Sue Bee broke the C.A.T streak for predicting Super Bowl winners. I was for the Giants, because I just don’t like (even though I know he’s talented) Tom Brady.

    But the real excitement of the afternoon was the Puppy Bowl — it seemed to be a fairly high scoring game; the Kitty Half-time show was excellent as always, and the Piggy Pep Club was a very nice addition. Alice, Dorothy and I watched it, then a friend came over to watch the human game,but we ended up watching a fair amount of the Puppy Bowl again.

    Hi Max!
    The Human and I watched Puppy Bowl,E.T.(the movie) and Downton Abbey. I would have liked to see Madonna,but the Human didn’t change the channel in time. I can’t imagine that she was more entertaining than the kitten half-time show.I didn’t see any middle claws,but there was some hissing and spitting.

    We were bummed to learn this morning that the Giants won the Super Bowl, if only because they left Sue Bee with Alpo all over her face. Rat-bastards!

    The Puppy Bowl was a much higher-scoring game. I was kind of surprised that they didn’t post the total points earned.

    And how about those hamsters driving the blimp? I would have loved to hitch a ride with them. We also followed the insightful live tweets of @meepthebird. Anthony Bourdain could learn something from him.

    The confetti finale of the Kitten Half-Time Show was truly spectacular. We told Karen we should do something similar here. She could take that big bag she’s accumulated from her shredder and toss it down from the balcony onto us in the living room. That, and some good ‘nip, would be a BLAST!

    Karen has us all hooked on Downton Abbey, but we only saw a bit of it last night before we all conked out. Fortunately, she tapes it so we can watch it tonight. (I don’t understand why she almost NEVER watches shows when they’re really on.)

    We predict that Mrs. Bates is going to come to a bad end, accidentally, of course. Anna or Bates will be blamed, and the other one will take the fall. Since Bates has already done that, we think Anna will sacrifice herself for him.

    Figured your household would be hooked on Downton Abbey — same here.After you see this week’s episode, we must discuss. I read yesterday that Shirley MacLaine will join the cast next season, as Cora’s mother. She and Maggie Smith can have a fine time chewing up the scenery.

    Oh yeah, and we loved @meepthebird and the hamster-driven blimp as well as the tailgaters in the Puppy Bowl. The blimp was on last year, but I think Meep may have been a new addition. My friend, Linda, laughed until she choked about a tweeting bird. Great television!

    Yes, we saw the news about Shirley MacLaine. Inspired bit of casting there.

    Karen saw previews for a new movie coming out called “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” with Maggie Smith, she thought she saw Isabel Crowley (real name?), Judi Dench, and Bill Nighy about these British seniors who end up in a hotel in India. It looks really good, if only to give Maggie and Crowley another go at each other.

    I was just reading a news story on how the Giants won the game and couldn’t make heads or tails of it. To score or not, run out the clock, etc. Oh, all the deep, deep, psychological analysis that goes into every play!

    With a score of 17-21, it sounds like nothing but the last minute was much worth watching. Cole tell me that’s how Super Bowls usually go. (I wouldn’t know. This was my first one.) Big hype, then a dull games whose commercials are more entertaining.
