While more than 100 million people will tune in to watch the 49ers and Chiefs battle in Super Bowl LVIII, there are still plenty of folks that would much rather spend their time tuning in to anything else on TV that day.

One of the most popular choices over the past several years has been the Discovery Channel's Puppy Bowl, which is now in its 20 year.

And while it's against a football backdrop, the  whole thing is really just a great excuse to watch a bunch of puppies having a ball and living their best lives.
