Boomer Esiason Named Feline League Commissioner

Beloved former Bengal named Commissioner of Feline Football League by the Hallmark Channel.

As you might expect from the Hallmark Channel, they have created a new football league that oozes with cuteness. To run this league they chose former Bengal, Boomer Esiason as commissioner.

According to the Hallmark Channel:

Esiason will serve as spokesperson for the FFL, which includes a Scouting Combine, draft, season games and playoffs that lead up to the biggest feline showdown in history, "Kitten Bowl II," premiering Su-purr Bowl Sunday, February 1, 2015.

The league is a celebration of pet adoption according to the media release and why not have a former Bengals player as the decision maker? I think with the way the Bengals performed this past Sunday, they show the kind of grit that would be welcome in a league comprised of kittens.

"Funny cat video's" are one of the most popular searches on YouTube and using that popularity to encourage animal adoptions is a good thing.

I am not sure how the league will be run, allowing for a full season of games to figure out what kitten based team deserves the honor of playing in the championship, but I am on the edge of my seat awaiting the details from Commissioner Esiason. Hopefully he will have a better grasp on conduct than the NFL commissioner does.

In a nice break from the doom and gloom of the current state of the Bengals, here is a video for your enjoyment:
