Guys in the pro bowl help each other up, pose for pictures together between quarters and hug each other after the game.
Roger Goddell being an imbecile doesn't GET this. He thinks that the Pro Bowl is not only a real game, but should be a money maker. He's suggested getting rid of it and at one point put a pro bowl in the same city in which the Superbowl was being played. Goddell thinks if the Pro bowl is played the week BEFORE the Superbowl...people will watch.
Sorry, I haven't watched an entire Pro-bowl since Mr. Warren Moon was playing in them. I just don't give a vugg about the Pro-Bowl. I don't care...I really just don't care. Am I alone?
The last time I bothered watching a Pro Bowl, Howie Long was still playing. That is how little I care for that game. So for me, next weekend will be more about watching the Senior Bowl, than some lame NFL Pro Bowl.
