POP TV: Here’s A List Of Alternative Viewings Just In Case You Get Super Bored With Super Bowl LIII

Published

on

I will preface this entire post by saying that I was flirting with the 200-lb mark by junior high school. Needless to say I’ve never exactly been the sporty type. While I support the idea of teamwork, 7-layer dips and men in tight pants, I have to admit I usually get bored while half watching the Super Bowl with my roommate.

For Super Bowl LIII, I thought I’d be proactive! Rather than just sitting around waiting for the next refill on tortilla chips, I thought I’d prepare a list of good, alternative tv options to watch instead. If you’re like me and don’t want to fall victim to a Super Bowl snooze, check out the list below!

Puppy Bowl XV – Animal Planet – 3pm EST

This really should’t take much convincing. It’s puppies playing together for hours on end! No need to worry about deflated footballs with this group, the biggest crime happening here might just be an overzealous pup with an overactive bladder.

Dr. Pimple Popper: The Poppy Bowl – TLC – 5pm-11pm EST

I would recommend keeping the queso dip out of the room for this one. TLC will be airing a 6-hour marathon of  America’s newest sensation, Dr. Pimple Popper, during the Big Game. The 6, fan-favorite episodes will feature Dr. Sandra Lee popping zits while also showing some never-before-seen footage. Can’t you just burst with excitement?!

Worst Cooks In America – Food Network – 8pm EST

Once you are basking in the success of your microwaved chicken tenders, you may feel inspired to watch a little Food Network. Luckily, there’s a mini marathon of Worst Cooks In America which culminate in a new episode starting at 8pm. I feel kind of like a champ myself after I watch this.

Velvet Buzzsaw – Streaming starting February 1st – Netflix

If you are truly talented, you could stream Velvet Buzzsaw on your phone whilst feigning enthusiasm about the Big Game AT THE SAME TIME! It might just be my greatest challenge yet. The super intense Netflix original seems like it will give you just as many heart palpitations as any sporting event. The plot is a bit vague but basically bad things are happening to people who bought some art? If nothing else, you get to stare at Jake Gyllenhaal for 2 hours.

Finding Nemo & Finding Dory – Freeform – 4:45pm EST

Sure they’re not anything new but seeing these two films back to back is the best way to spend any night…Super Bowl or not! The classic tale of runaway fish is brilliantly told by Disney/Pixar in two different ways. Trade in the chicken wings for fish sticks and a themed party could still be on the calendar.

Did my list score a touchdown or will you stick to watching the Big Game? If you insist on seeing those tight pants run around the field be sure to check out the LA Rams take on the New England Patriots during Super Bowl LIII on February 3 at 6:30pm EST on CBS.

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

Click below to take a look at the magical performance from last night!

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
