Monday Mancat-in-Training

Ziggy here! As part of my mancat-in-training, I've taken it upon myself to watch lots of football. I like to watch up close and personal.



I find that giving them a helping paw now and then, to point out open receivers or holes for the running backs, seems to be appreciated.



And they always enjoy a cheering section, although I can never get them to throw the ball to me.



The above photo, from Friday's caption contest, is a bit misleading though. I certainly wasn't cheering for either team -- that was the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles that were playing! For those not familiar with U.S. football, we're firm Dallas Cowboys fans here at The Kitty Krew, and both of those teams are hated rivals in the same division. At the time of that game, in mid-December, all 3 teams were still in the race for division title and wild-card playoff spots. So in that particular instance, I was trying to put a hex on all the players on both teams! MOL

And now, to announce the winner of Friday's Caption This contest! There were a lot of good entries, and some were very similar, and we couldn't really decide which we liked best in our totally random nonscientific completely biased opinion -- so we put all the entries in a hat and drew a name. Okay, not really, we put all the entries in a list online at random.org and let them pick a random entry. And the winner is.... (drumroll please) .....

Madi and Mom!!

Congratulations! Please email us (our email is on the sidebar) with your address, and we'll get a little something to you...eventually...

Now on to the most important part of my training...
