Newsflash: Aussie cat to play in Super Bowl XLIII

... unfortunately, it's not me.

But former Geelong Cats captain (from the Australian Football League) Ben Graham, who punts for the Arizona Cardinals, will tomorrow (Australian time) become the first Australian to play in a Super Bowl when his team goes up against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He's overcome a niggling groin injury, and looks set to make history for Australia.

As you can see from the photo above, I'm usually a Vikings man, but I'll be supporting the Cardinals in the big game, for Ben Graham's sake. Go Cardinals!

Happy Super Bowl Sunday, everycat!


P.S. I'm honoured to be featured in Zoolatry's High Five Sunday today. Go and check me out, I look great, thanks to some Zoolatry magic.

That is interesting to learn that a former Australian football player plays for the Cardinals. Zoolatry did a wonderful job on your High Five Saturday graphic. You look very handsome in the picture.

We think the Zoolatry ladies did a wonderful job of showcasing your handsome mancatliness. It was sure good to see an Aussie get shot on such a big stage. Although we must admit, we were more interested in the cute kitties.

Sad that Benny Graham's team didn't win Pabs.

Sad about the cricket too.

We saw your Aussie guy in the game, sadly his team did not win.
