Check out the adorable participants of the 2016 Kitten Bowl

Thursday January 7th, 2016

Hallmark Channel will air the third annual Kitten Bowl this year on Feb. 7, the same day that a slightly less adorable but equally anticipated game will be played for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

This year Extra Mustard is getting an early look at the rosters of the four teams competing in Kitten Bowl III, and they contain some impressive cat/NFL Puns.
