The big game is here. Today, Feb. 7, is the day. That’s right. It’s Kitten Bowl VIII time. This year’s epic display of catleticism kicks off at 2 PM Mountain time on the Hallmark Channel.
Second only to the kittens’ cuteness are the catletes’ names! Here’s a collection of some of the best in the Kitten Bowl’s eight-year hisstory. (Warning: Brace yourself for a flurry of apawlingly over-the-top cat puns.)
This blazingly fast tabby pawsitively dominated the competition in the 2017 Kitten Bowl, much like his namesake(ish) human did in the 1990s.
Good luck containing this furocious defensive cat! He’s not the only Kitten Bowl star with a name inspired by the Houston Texans great. See also: Stray J. Watt.
There are few competitors as furocious as this handsome face kicker.
This speedy fullcat’s got some clawsome moves.
Unlike the human who inspired his name, young Meowfield won’t subject you to pawful Progressive commercials.
This cool cat always comes through in the big games – just like the human to whom his name pays homage. Remember The Catch?
We can only imagine this magic cat has as much swagger and style as FitzMagic.
Socks Fifth Avenue
This handsome tuxedo kitty is all class – just like the department store!
“The Bard” can flat-out ball.
This lazy leap tackle lives up to his name. Check him out in action!
