"My Oh My....Mittens!   You Kitten"

What?

America's favorite radio voice is now headed to the litter box as The Hallmark Channel announced on it's website Tuesday that longtime voice of the New York Yankees, John Sterling, will be the voice behind the inaugural "Kitten Bowl" during halftime of this year's Super Bowl. 

Below is the official release from The Hallmark Channel on the program.

Attention, sports fans! Hallmark Channel announces a brand new tradition that is sure to become the most talked about big game on television! On Sunday, February 2, 2014 starting at 12/11c, Hallmark Channel opens its stadium doors to the greatest feline showdown in cable television history, “Kitten Bowl,” a three-hour Hallmark Channel Original Special featuring the world’s most adorable – and adoptable – kittens in the mother lode of cat agility competition.

The competition will consist of a basic obstacle course of hurdles of varying heights, A-frame Alpine Scratchers, tunnels, hoop jumps, and weave poles.  Lures like laser pointers and toys on a string will be used to get the kittens through the course, but food will not allowed. Cat agility competitions, which are modeled after the equestrian sport of show jumping, normally include rules which state that cats must complete a course in under 270 seconds, completing each obstacle in a prescribed manner. In a typical feline agility contest, a cat would complete between six and fourteen obstacles, with winning cats completing the course in ten seconds or less.  In “Kitten Bowl,” however, the competitors are kittens and any form of cuteness is the key to the game.

Get ready to enjoy a brand new Hallmark Channel tradition this February!

At least in this contest, the Yankess won't win!
