Bryan Adams isn’t just the name of a singer of epic ’90s ballads. No, Bryan Adams is also a puppy in this year’s Puppy Bowl XI on Animal Planet, and if you aren’t watching, boy, are you missing out. Adams, a Labrador Retriever on Team Ruff, made history in the second quarter on Sunday by becoming only the second puppy ever to score by kicking a field goal.
The pup’s shelter, the Sato Project, was especially happy about the feat, which started Team Ruff’s second quarter comeback. By halftime, Team Ruff led Team Fluff, 45-28.
For those who might have drafted dogs other than Adams to their Puppy Bowl XI fantasy teams (it’s a real thing!), the excitement was less palpable, though.
The singer Bryan Adams, who tweets under the handle @BryanAdams, has yet to comment on his namesake dog’s game-changing moment.
