Four-legged furballs take to the field in Kitten Bowl III
NEW YORK — On the field, the four-legged fur balls of the Hallmark Channel's Kitten Bowl III were all business.
But off? Well, let's just say there were some impurr-prieties dogging these feline paw-thletes.
"Sometimes we get into an issue or two. They tend to like to really delve into the catnip, and that type of thing sometimes gets a little out of control," quipped Boomer Esiason, the Feline Football League commissioner for the Super Bowl Sunday event.
It was Esiason's second turn as commissioner. He kept his tongue firmly in cheek in fending off any appearance of influence peddling this time around with the fielding of his own team of kittens, the Boomer Bobcats.

Banished words include ‘presser’ and ‘problematic’
DETROIT — So a university has decided, without holding a presser, that about a dozen words and phrases are problematic and should be banned from everyday use — and there are no plans to walk it back even if the announcement breaks the Internet.
Still, everyone can be a stakeholder and join the conversation.
Universal Orlando looks back 25 years
ORLANDO, Fla. — When the Universal Orlando theme park opened in 1990, it was a way for visitors to have fun inspired by the movies they loved — without traveling to California.
Director Steven Spielberg held the scissors at the ribbon-cutting. One of the first rides was themed on his movie “E.T.” Even ads for the park had the tone of a movie-quality teaser, promising the “greatest Hollywood production ever.”
True – still healthy – decadence: the maple budino
Years ago, a friend took me to one of his favorite restaurants in New York City. Dinner was fantastic, the company riveting, but what stayed with me most was dessert: maple budino. One bite and I was smitten.
The pudding was luxuriously fatty and creamy, and the flavor was incredibly clean: maple and maybe a little floral vanilla. Budino is simply Italian for pudding, but this was unlike any pudding I’d ever eaten. For the record, I am a pudding fan. I grew up having “pudding parties” with my sister, the two of us making pudding out of the box, lightly scorching every saucepan in the house over the years.
