Last-minute news and notes from Hawaii as the exciting Pro Bowl kickoff approaches. Um, they will have kickoffs in this game, right?
If some little Canadian dirtbag gets front page headlines for driving a Lamborghini stoned, and no one cares about the best players in the sport of football going head-to-head, then something is wrong. With that in mind, I offer up a solution to the annual Pro Bowl crappy TV dilemma…
It’s been awfully snowy and cold out these last few days. Here’s some stuff to keep you from getting down in the dumps.
Even though the NFL has considered scrapping the Pro Bowl, even though everyone claims to hate the Pro Bowl, even though the Pro Bowl is filled with replacement players, you still watched the Pro Bowl. Admit it. Maybe not the whole thing, but at the very least you snuck in a peek or two just to see J.J. Watt line up at wide receiver or some intra-fan brouhahas.
At this point the Pro Bowl is functionally irrelevant. Very few people care, but does that make it worthless? Even though it often looks like a glorified flag football game, there are redeeming qualities. It can be fun as long as you correctly calibrate your expectations. I set out to prove this, so I kept a running diary of the game. See it after the jump.
Football is an intense viewing experience. People enjoy consuming alcohol when they watch it. This is a volatile combination, and helps lead to moments like this. And this. And if you think the Pro Bowl’s laid-back atmosphere means everyone in the crowd is too… think again.
