Resolved: The pro bowl is anything but.
 
2013-01-27 08:03:54 AM  
Is that still going on?

I'd love to see the winner of the Pro Bowl take on the winner of the Super Bowl.  They could call it the Super Pro Bowl.  And then the winner of that game plays the winner of the SEC Championship.  They could call it the BCS Championship Game.  I mean, the SEC team will blow them out, but it would be interesting to see if a team comprised of professional players could score points against Alabama or Georgia.

What is the over/under on this game? I believe 100 points were scored in it last year.
 
2013-01-27 08:20:11 AM  
I can't remember the last one I was interested in. At least 20 years ago, probably when I was tending bar and there was nothing else on the sports channel.
 
2013-01-27 08:34:12 AM  
They really should move it to June when people have nothing better to do. Or, better yet, have all the all star games on the same weekend in the same town. Make it a party.
 
2013-01-27 09:58:58 AM  
End the thing. Else, quit having fans and everyone else do a popular vote on the 'best' players.
 
2013-01-27 11:32:22 AM  
Aren't these threads supposed to be reserved for actual sporting activities?
 
2013-01-27 12:16:30 PM  
I will watch it but I cant say Im gonna like it. It would be fun if they did it after the SB and as someone stated up thread they took the fans out of the voting.
 
2013-01-27 01:55:07 PM  
The last 6 hours were FA cup.  I think I can skip the NFL's Miss Congeniality Bowl this year.

I want to see the winner of the Men's NCAA basketball championship take on the winner of the Women's NCAA basketball championship.  I don't think men's teams would go for it because they might lose and would never live it down.

Preview article on ESPN has it at 81.5, with the AFC slightly favored over the NFC.

I'm amazed any bookie in the world would take a bet on this game. Sort of like betting on The Washington Generals, even with the points.

Surely you can't be serious.
 
2013-01-27 06:06:30 PM  
I forgot this was on tonight. I probably will again.
 
2013-01-27 06:07:08 PM  
Well I can see that this thread will be a goddam barrel of laughs.
 
2013-01-27 06:07:30 PM  
Meh, I'll watch. There's nothing better on at 4.
 
2013-01-27 06:09:15 PM  
I enjoy the pro bowl. It is nice to see the players dick around and have fun for a few hours.
 
2013-01-27 06:12:08 PM  
People watch the Pro Bowl? Seriously?
 
2013-01-27 06:12:46 PM  
It's football, minus everything enjoyable about football...
 
2013-01-27 06:18:31 PM  
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz............
 
2013-01-27 06:23:50 PM  
Oh, what the hell. It's not like there's anything good on tonight.
 
2013-01-27 06:27:00 PM  
nascarcasm @nascarcasm

So very excited for the ProBowl tonight! The NFL's best players giving 110%! WHOOPS - typed an extra "1" there...
 
2013-01-27 06:29:59 PM  
I came here to find out more about chipotle salsa. WTF, fark? I guess I'll have to wait until next week for my football-related food porn.

/eating home-made ham/potato/corn/cheese chowder.
 
2013-01-27 06:35:16 PM  
Looks like all the players who were picked for New England got "hurt" last week playing Baltimore.

I guess they are butt-hurt.

What is this doing in the sports tab?

WHAR RUMBLE THREAD?

WHAR?!

/AP shouldn'tbe out there, screw that noise
 
2013-01-27 06:41:40 PM  
I've the Over at 79. Good bet?

First Pro-bowl and it starts at midnight here. I'm getting the feeling from this thread I should just go to bed
 
2013-01-27 06:41:47 PM  
I think the problem with the Pro Bowl is not that they deviate from the rules of regular football so much, they don't deviate enough. It's still too much like regular football, so it pisses people off. It should be more skill challenge-y, maybe add some elements of Ninja Warrior.

Awesome. And so right.
 
2013-01-27 06:45:17 PM  
I always thought it would be cool to have the best college team take on the worst pro team. Bama vs KC or something. For the lulz.
 
2013-01-27 06:47:57 PM  
Over and under on lies told on 60 minutes tonight....20

Force players to rotate positions. Jeff Saturday throwing to Peyton Manning, or Eli covering Peyton would be great lulz.

Andre thread told me 7pm. I'm watching Pro Bowl details now to stall.

I'll take the over.
 
2013-01-27 07:02:04 PM  
HOLY shiat that stadium is like 10% full.
 
2013-01-27 07:02:32 PM  
Don't think I've seen the Pro Bowl since the early 80s.
 
2013-01-27 07:02:42 PM  
Are you ready for some football-like activity?
 
2013-01-27 07:03:42 PM  

7th Son of a 7th Son: HOLY shiat that stadium is like 10% full.


I've heard some crazy conspiracies about how they tear more tickets than people actually attend.

They should just replace it with some sort of skills competition in the SB host city the week before the game. Maybe have some sort of celebrity/players flag football game like MLB's softball game.
 
2013-01-27 07:06:37 PM  
Oh dear god it's Train. *DRINK*
 
2013-01-27 07:06:41 PM  
Train?

Oh fark you, Pro Bowl.
 
2013-01-27 07:06:48 PM  
No! They've got Ukeleles! Run!

I thought we had established that he's pretty well high as fark for most games. Of course he'll say that.
 
2013-01-27 07:07:32 PM  
Here's some hard hitting music to get you pumped for a hard hitting football game.
 
2013-01-27 07:07:52 PM  
I wanna see Swedish melodic death metal on a ukelele. Hawaii meets In Flames.

Foaming: Are you ready for some football-like activity?


It's NBC, so I'm hoping for Faith Hill intro...

HEY!  NFL CHEERLEADERS ALL-STARS for 10 seconds...
 
2013-01-27 07:09:04 PM  
I think there are more people on the field then in the seats.

/Really another song?
