"Are You Ready For Some Football???"


Cats in football helmets? Football on a cat blog?  "Why?" Because we feel sorry for our friends in Minnesota, that's why!

The roof at the Metrodome where the Minnesota Vikings were scheduled to play the New York Giants today at 1pm, has collapsed!!!





Being a cat with clout I was able to playwith pull some strings and the game will now be played in Detroit at Ford Field (Home of the Detroit Lions and is a nice and cozy domed cat house) this Monday, December 13th, at 7 (or 7:30pm....

Lions=felines which=cats which=cat blogs (huh?) which is what this is and I live in the Detroit area, hence the importance of this post!

We hope that a lot of our friends from Minnesota (Angie from Catladyland are you listening??) will be able to make it!

Safe travels and welcome to
The "D!!!"

  5. John was just telling me about the game being moved to Detroit! I'm not a football fan, but he is. If it were closer, that would be really fun, wouldn't it? We have family near Detroit and hope they will be able to make it.

    You are so funny -- love this post! Smooches!! xoxo Angie

  6. Oh that roof collapse was horrible. You kitties look adorable in your helmets and I am surely glad you were not playing in that stadium when that happened (or anyone fur or human)

  10. @Feline Frenzzy-I play fantasy football picks with HGTV (it is free....I think I picked Philadelphia so rest assured Dallas will probably win!)

  11. @Angie, Ohhhh if it were closer that would be sooo much fun! I do love football and so does Lenny. They are giving the Minnesota/NY fans dibs on the premium seats when they come tomorrow.
    For the Detroit fans they are having FREE ADMISSION! Lenny was going to go but we are supposed to have more snow tomorrow and the same frigid temps as you (and the game is at night) so he just decided not to go.
    The only thing I am going to do tomorrow is go out and start my car (I didn't use it today) and that is about it!
    One day if you ever come and see your fam near Detroit you will have to let me know!
    I am so glad you liked this!! Love ya!

  12. @Hilary thanks so much!!

    @Admiral Hestorb you are sooo right and that is important to be mentioned. Thank goodness nobody was on that field when the roof collapsed...you are such a thoughtful kitty!! xoxo

  13. @kelly lol, yep cats like birds! lol. I think I picked the Falcons today too...I will have to check!

    @Katnip Lounge, I love "da Bears!" and I picked them and they are getting KILLED right now (which I am sure you know!) The weather in Chicago today is exactly what we are getting right now in Detroit...the very first football game I ever went to was the Browns and Chicago (I was about 12 or so and my Dad took my brother and I) and the weather was just like it is today!

  14. @Great Granny, yes that is so true! I did hear though that this was the biggest storm the Minnesota area has had since the 90s. They DO get a lot! We get pretty whammed in Michigan too but they get it worse.

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Old Kitty yes they should! You take care too! xoxo

    @Cat-In-Sydney, the major miracle was the Lions DID win today (which is a very, very rare thing) Too bad I didn't pick them to win in my pool!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow... that's going to be one major clean up! poor things!
    I go for Lions as well, but here they are the Brisbane Lions and the game is AFL!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've never watched a football match, ever. Simba has watched football here in England but never seen American football. We are both excited about watching and looking forward to having a hot dog nom nom nom

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Alittlesprite, yep that will be one heck of a clean-up!
    Loved your comment about the Brisbane Lions!! rrroooooaaaar!!!
    Is the AFL like rugby?

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Princess Jasmine, are you going to watch football tomorrow?? I asked cause you said you are "excited about watching"....will they show it there?
    Yesssssss hot dogs are sooooooooo tasty!

  24. M talked to her friend today that lives in St. Paul. They got 28 inches of snow. That's a lot of snow. I'm glad their team got to play anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  25. My Goodness,
    you are totally into the football field~~

    ReplyDelete
  26. We heard about that too but we're glad the game will be played in Detroit. Way to go Lions for the great game today!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hey lady thanks for your awesome comments on my blog! People didn't believe me when I told them the metrodome collapsed -- You'd think they'd have planned for heavy snow when they built it, seeing as we're in Minnesnowta! ;) Thanks for welcoming us to Detroit!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Cats and football, that's interesting.

    Those cats with helmets are really cute! May be I should let Eva and Mika try it too, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Kind of, but they don't tackle, and if you don't know the rules the game appears to have NO rules..lol, they also wear less clothing, and are generally way cuter than rugby boys... MEEEOOWW!
    note: wearing less clothing I mean their shorts are tighter, and their shirts have no sleeves, so you can ogle their manly arms.. heheee!

    ReplyDelete
  30. That is a great pic. Those are very patient marmalades.

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Mario, they didn't play YET...lol...the game is tonight and we have bad weather in Detroit! Not as bad as Minnesota was hit but temps are below zero, high winds and some places got a foot of snow....we only got about 5 inches.

    ReplyDelete
  32. @michico, alrighty then!

    @The Monkeys, thanks but don't give Detroit TOO much credit lol. I am sure they had to agree with it but I am sure the powers that be (NFL) made the main decision to play the game here. We are the closest enclosed football field to Minnesota and NY and I am sure they are paying Detroit to have it here :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. @Emma you are welcome! thanks for stopping by! You are right, "you would think they would have planned, huh??" You kill me with "Minnesnowta!!" I sooooo love it! You are most welcome and glad to have ya!

    @Priscilla oh yes!! Eva and Mika could run and run with their helmets! lol

    ReplyDelete
  34. @Alittlesprite, I love it!!!! :)

    @The Whiskeratti, I never heard of that before! Do they call kitties "marmalades?" Sooooo cute! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Appropriate! Funny! We should have had you around a few years ago for our "special seasonal blog" the NFL ... National Feline League. I'll email you the Detroit Lions rep!
    Caren (Cody & Dakota)... thanks for hanging in there with us; we've done very little visiting lately & the human hasn't even had time to update her blog roll to add all our new friends like you! It's a new years resolution for sure!
    Got snow? Make a snowcat!

    ReplyDelete
  36. @Zoolatry, OMC "National Feline League" I would have LOVED THAT! Yes email me what you were mentioning.
    You are sooo sweet! Are you kidding me? Please do NOT apologize!!! You are BEYOND busy and I completely understand and never even gave it a thought!!! You are a doll, and am so happy that I met you!
    Love the "snowcat" idea....might have to try it one day, PURRFECT IDEA!

  37. Orange kittehs are sometimes called marmalades. Or gingers.

    ReplyDelete
  38. @The Whiskeratti THANK YOU! I LOVE THAT! I had never heard of either expression and I love learning new things! I think "marmalades" is adorable for orange kitties! I would love to see someone name their orange kitty "Marmalade!"
    ((((hugs))))

  39. That collapse was so crazy! Good thing they are still able to play!
