Animal Planet's 'Puppy Bowl' is an adorable annual tradition that takes place on the day of the Super Bowl. Diehard Steelers and Cardinals fans will shudder to think that anyone wouldn't want to watch the 2009 Super Bowl this evening, but for every die-hard fan there's an uninterested individual for whom February 1, 2009 is just another Sunday.

Unfortunately, non-sports fans are often looped in with the diehards on Super Bowl Sunday and are forced to sit through hours of commentary, instant replays and commercials for a sport in which they have no interest.

The Puppy Bowl pits 24 puppies in an all-out playfest on the gridiron. Who'll reign supreme: Griffey, the Labrador Retriever or Alex, the scrappy Hound Mix? Only time will tell as these adorable pups head to the gridiron to settle the score on Super Bowl Sunday.
