On Sunday, there will be a good portion of the world watching Super Bowl LII for the game or just the commercials or both, but some people would rather have something else to do.

You can check out the Puppy Bowl, Zombie Bowl, Kitten Bowl, or any number of marathons that might be more entertaining.

The New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles are going to battle it out for NFL supremacy, and half of the world will be tuning in.
