Knit-a-thon takes on the Super Bowl

knit; yarnThe DIY network has created its own programming as an alternative to Super Bowl Sunday, which is one week from today. The cable network will air a knit-a-thon, called Super Knit Sunday, which is just a marathon of the series Knitty Gritty. The event is in conjunction with the charity, Wake Up America! It starts at 5 pm, so get your needles ready, people!

Other counter programming is also pretty creative. Howard Stern is planning an "all-wardrobe function all-the-time transvestite flag football game" for Halftime and the Hallmark Channel is offering a "tear-jerking Commercial-a-thon".

Yeah. I think I'll stick with the Super Bowl.

Actually, I think the name of the charity is Warm Up America! (Hopefully. I'm currently making a blanket for them and if it's Wake Up America, I need to go buy brighter colored yarn.)

Didn't Animal Planet have a puppy bowl last year or the year before? It's kinda like the Yule Log, but with Puppies in a fake arena. It was really cute too.
