Default Is anybody even watching the Pro-Bowl tonight?

I thought about it, but I'm not sure if I'm bored enough or not.

I might just download it and watch it some night when I can't fall asleep.

I wish they would change it up a little bit. I kind of like what they did with the NHL All Star game this year (which is just finishing up), though I did have my reservations about it earlier.

What they did was name a captain for each team (one from the east, one from the west) and had the captains hold a draft for all of the All Star players, and then that's who played for each team. It was kind of fun. Not the same old boring best of the east vs. the best of the west type of thing.

(Sorry, not meaning to take it off topic lol...it's just gotten so old and repetitive over the years).

I used to watch a quarter or so when it was the last game of the year and there was no football for another 6 months. I even bet on the Pro Bowl one year after I had a good Super Sunday and won, but then realized that probably indicated I needed to get my gambling under control)

Now it is not the last game of the year and there are no Steelers playing - I will be taking a pass

i actually went to the probowl in "97". i watched one quarter. stood by the beer stand which was right beside a womens bathroom , and drank beer and checked out the, "scenery", for a quarter. while i was there i ended up shootin the shit with a few people i just met. they invited me back to their vehicle to tailgate we drank the rest of their beers then went barhopping for a few hours.
it was just boring and hot , and the ticket was only $20 , so it was no biggie. though it was odd leaving a game to go tailgating...

Ed B. of the P-G reports Roethlisberger will be interviewed live at halftime of the Pro Bowl, so i guess I will turn on the game around 8:15

f you’re reading this before tonight’s Pro Bowl, Ben Roethlisberger will be interviewed at halftime live.

I'm pretty sure that Family Guy will hold my attention longer than the Pro Bowl.

im watching. always do. this is the 1st time i can remember not seeing any steelers in it. while i appreciate the reason why, it still kinda sucks.

one of my favorite pro bowls was watching hines ward tear it up with a real qb (p. manning) throwing to him.

he deserved that opportunity to shine.
