Conan Celebrates the Puppy Bowl

The Big Game is coming soon, and everyone in America will be watching. I’m referring, of course, to the annual Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. 🙂 Here are a couple fun clips of Conan O’Brien’s version of the Puppy Bowl. They dress up the little pups in wigs and costumes, it’s really cute. Conan’s smart… you can never go wrong with puppies.

Salt Lake City Enjoys First Official Comic Con

Salt Lake City, Utah just enjoyed their very first official Comic Con, and it was an enormous success. An estimated 70,000-80,000 people attended the event. And while those numbers can’t compare to the big Comic Con in San Diego, they ended up breaking a few records.

For one, SLC set a record for the largest first-year Comic Con in the entire country. And it was the largest convention the state of Utah has ever had. Wow, that’s fantastic! Way to go Salt Lake!

Here are some photos from the event. The costumes are as good as ever. Please do head over to FOX13Now to view the huge photo gallery.
