I.C.Y.M.I.: Meet The Starting Lineup of Puppy Bowl 2021
Greetings, fellow pop culture aficionados, and welcome to week 44 of ourI.C.Y.M.I.(In Case You Missed It) blog series, where we recap a handful of trending tidbits from the past week(s) in popular culture, in case you missed them.
The "Big Game" (read: Puppy Bowl 2021) is right around the corner, with Team RUFF taking on Team FLUFF at 11 a.m. PST on Sunday, February 7 — hours before the other "Big Game" between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs, NFL teams that advanced to Super Bowl LV.
Animal Planet recently unveiled this year's lineup of 70 adoptable puppies that hail from shelters and rescues across the northeast United States. The two teams will compete for the highly-coveted "Lombarky" trophy. You'll definitely want to browse the full gallery, but here's a couple of our favorite competitors from either side. Who's your pick for most valuable pup?

February is Black History Month, and throughout the month MoPOP will host (virtually!) its eighth annual Through the Eyes of Art event that brings together artists, community leaders, politicians, and tastemakers from across the state of Washington to celebrate the Black experience. Look for complete details and a calendar of events to be announced on our blog next week!
