As far as I can tell, this is an actual thing: Hallmark Channel announced Monday that it will carry the first ever "Kitten Bowl" on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 2, with John Sterling on play-by-play and Beth Stern, wife of Howard, as host.
No, really. I think.
Kitten Bowl will be conducted in association with North Shore Animal League America, with all of the participating kittens guaranteed homes when the big event is over.
The news release for the event said it is part of the channel's "Pet Project" initiative, which is "devoted to celebrating pets and the incredible joy and enrichment they bring to our lives."
Ms. Stern is a long-time advocate of shelter pets. Sterling is . . . well, Sterling.
Have fun in the comments about what Sterling might say, but please keep it clean.
The games will be heard on both WFAN's AM (660) and FM (101.9) signals. There is no word yet if John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman will continue to be the broadcast team. The Yankees have always had the right to choose their radio team in past contracts.
Newsday reported that the deal is for 10 years and worth $15-20 million per season. The Spanish-language broadcast rights were also included. The Mets will now have to find a new broadcast home.
The Yankees will be heard on WCBS-880 AM the rest of this season.
As part of the agreement, John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman will return as the radio broadcasters.
