Game ON

Today are the big AFC and NFC title games in the NFL, with the winners going to the Super Bowl. May the best teams win!

[Hold on that last part. Total bias disclaimer here: C.O. Global HQ is in Silicon Valley, where the new Niners stadium is going up. Ahem. Anyway. -Ed]

First up, the Niners. Sender-inner Christina V. explains: “Gulliver (Leonberger pup) and Sadie are ready for the game..”

“…although they’d probably cheer for whoever has cheeseburgers.”

“Leo the cat got in on the action too.”

“Bring on the tailgate parties and halftime shows…as long as there are bacon cheeseburgers and nachos.”

The San Francisco Zoo has a black rhino named Boone, named for Niner lineman Alex Boone. Through today, Alex has graciously agreed to donate his proceeds from TheRhino75 gear to the San Francisco Zoo. Photo by May Woon.

Meanwhile…up the coast:

“Everyone in Seattle is getting geared up for the game this afternoon, including the Seattle Aquarium who named their hermit crab after Marshawn Lynch…hence ‘Marshawn Pinch.’ Oh, and go HAWKS.” -Trina E.

Check a live view of MP right here.

Of course, Marshawn is on Facebook..

…and Twitter.

  1. The lion cub didn’t report in as an eligible receiver 🙂

  2. My kittehs and I are rooting for the Pats! PATS!!!

  3. I was born and raised in the same area (Santa Clara County) where the 49ers training camp and new stadium are, so I still have a soft spot in my heart for the red and gold.

    With that said, however, and since I’m now living in the great northwest, I gotta say, GO SEAHAWKS!

    I’m with Leo the Cat. Bring on the Kitteh Bowl!

  5. Hailing from California for half my life (born in a S.F. suburb actually), my loyalty is definitely split for the game, but I have to say Seattle has already won the battle of the QTE on this one.

  6. (BTW: I’ve lived in WA State for 15 years now…)

  7. Quiet Desperation says:

    I get the sense there’s some sort of sport event happening today.

  8. Your intuitive skills are formidable, Sir/Madam.

  9. Kitten Bowl, you say? Stay tuned.

  10. So, this Kitten Bowl was just a warm-up?

  11. i’m rooting for the seahawks over the 49ers anyway, but if i wasn’t, the name “Marshawn Pinch” would absolutely have turned me to their side.

  12. Strictly pre-lim. C.O. xxxooo Kitten Bowl.

  13. Yeah!Thanks for posting the pics.

    You know its a big deal when even the pastor adds,lets church out early.

  14. AWW 😀 I just LOVE the kitty pictures 😀 I live in Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada and I want to say to everyone here, “GO SEAHAWKS, GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!” 😀

  15. I couldn’t understand that crab in a Seahawks helmet but that’s really fun.

    What a great name for a great crab!!! I have bookmarked his site: when I clicked on it he was not on screen: must be napping in the locker room.

  17. Where’s Sammy Kaepernick in his jersey?
