Even if you're not a sports fan, you can't avoid all the football going on every weekend on television.

The Super Bowl is almost upon us, but we've still got a few games left this weekend. The Buffalo Bills take on The Kansas City Chiefs and The Green Bay Packers take on Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

When it comes to the Super Bowl and if you're trying to avoid the big game, there's always the puppy bowl.

Animal Planet has been running the Puppy Bowl since 2005. The puppies that play during the Puppy Bowl are all rescue animals who are either up for adoption or just about ready to meet their forever family.

For the past few years, the Hudson Valley has been well represented in the puppy bowl and 2021 is no different.

This year two lower Hudson Valley puppies are playing in the "ruff" and tumble game. Paws Crossed Animal Rescue out of Elmsford shared that two of their alumni pups will be taking the field.

In a statement that was shared by Paws Crossed Animal Rescue, New York's Governor Cuomo shared the news in a press release during his "Deep Breath Moment" on January 16th:

Bailey (previously known as Nutty Coconut) will be playing for Team Ruff (orange) and Yogi will represent Team Fluff (blue).

The Puppy Bowl will air on Discovery + and Animal Planet on Sunday, February 7th at 2 pm.
