Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner has to have a lot on his mind right now. With the Super Bowl right around the corner, he’s gotta be fully focused on taking the Cards to their first “Big Dance.” And stress? Not only is he feeling pressure to bring home some more Super Bowl bling, but his wife and kids are also pressuring him to bring home a dog.
According to a recent article, good ol’ Kurt allegedly promised his family that they could get a dog if the Cards win the Super Bowl. While Warner doesn’t seem quite ready to bow to their request for a new bow-wow yet, wife Brenda isn’t backing down. And neither are we. Recently, our sports aficionado Dan Shannon penned a missive to Warner asking him to consider adopting a dog from an animal shelter.
“The Cardinals have been called an underdog all season, so I think you’ll easily sympathize with the ‘underdogs’ staring out from the shelter kennels, longing for someone to take them home and love them,” writes Dan in the letter.
Our advice to Kurt? Watch out for the blitz, don’t get on Anquan Boldin’s bad side, and avoid getting tackled by or tangled up in Polamalu’s hair. And if you do win, skip Disneyland and take the kiddies to your local animal shelter instead. If you don’t win, head to the shelter anyways. Nothing mends a broken heart like the love of a good mutt.
