21,000 Pizzas To Be Sent To The Troops In Time For Sunday's Game

Well Sunday is the final day of football for the season as Baltimore and San Francisco play in the Big Game. Even if you are not a fan of football you must admit the championship game is an American tradition, just like Thanksgiving and Independence Day. It's something only an American can understand, appreciate and bonds us all together; even when you are stationed overseas.
Pizzas 4 Patriots will once again send 21,000 Chicago-style Deep Dish pizzas to our troops stationed in Camp Bastion, Bagram Airbase and Kandahar; all in Afghanistan,as well as Camp Arifjan in Kuwait and various Forward Operating Bases in both countries.
"Since 2008, we have had the pleasure of providing our brave U.S. servicemen and women overseas with the most delicious, authentic 'slices of home', letting them know we care and we are thinking of them," said Ret. Master Sergeant Mark Evans, founder of Pizzas 4 Patriots. "While our soldiers' presence in the Middle East continues to become smaller, they still need to know that we appreciate the sacrifices they make for us, our families and our country."
Every puppy and kitten comes from a shelter or rescue organization in the United States. A total of 63 puppies, 21 kittens and 9 hedgehogs, who are the cheerleaders this year dressed in tutus! "Animal Planet works in conjunction with Petfinder during the selection process for the puppies," an Animal Planet spokesman explains. "Petfinder reaches out to shelters and rescue organizations to see if they have puppies that meet the age and size requirements and if so, asks if they would be interested in having those animals be part of Puppy Bowl."
What happens to the pups after the Bowl? "In years past, all of the puppies and kittens have been adopted to loving families. As of now, only one puppy from this year's lineup is still up for adoption.
The hedgehogs were provided by loving families who originally adopted them," the spokesman says.
How do they get the puppies to behave so cutely on camera? Well the Puppy Bowl is actually filmed in November and any footage of pups acting less than fascinating is edited out before the show airs. So the show may be, technically, "fixed." Not that there's anything wrong with that, because: puppies, kittens and hedgehogs!
Puppy Bowl IX begins Sunday at 3pm on Animal Planet.
