Not ready for some football?

Come Super Bowl Sunday, we will be glued to the screen—and not just for the commercials, Black Eyed Peas halftime show and Glee post-Bowl ep. Seeing old-school franchises like the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers duke it out really has us stoked. But that's just us.

So if traditional gridiron goodness isn't your thing, never fear, we've got you covered. Watch something like this instead:

Puppy Bowl: Hands-down, the Dogfather of all Super Bowl counterprogramming (sorry, Lingerie Bowl.) Now in its seventh season, Animal Planet's furry football game is fun for all.  In addition the usual puppy touchdowns (dragging a toy to the end zone), penalties (soiling the field) and timeouts (water bowl refills), this season will feature the arena-fave Kiss Cam. So pucker up with your pup or see who from the starting lineup you'd like to adopt! (Animal Planet, Sunday at 3 p.m.)

DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl: Super Bowl Saturday will have Glee guy Matthew Morrison and New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez serving as celebrity assistant coaches to the New York Giants' Eli Manning and the Cleveland Browns' Colt McCoy in the star-studded touch-football fete. Warren Moon and Jesse Palmer are playing the QB position, with these Tinseltown teammates: Josh Duhamel, Chace Crawford, Kellan Lutz, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Chord Overstreet, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara, Hunter Parrish, Michael B. Jordan, Dominic Fumusa, Brie Larson and Marisa Miller.(Direct TV 101 Network, Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT)
