    Last year was probably the best Pro Bowl I have seen... The true starters at major positions sat out, and the ones who got their place step'd up. But Also, it was a night game atmostphere, (east coast time). Hawaii is boring, and humid. :D

    I'd like to see this game on Sat night prime time, a week before the SB, in the host superbowl site. :eek::)

    This was a real BS game, they should at least try to make it more like a real game and not like a flag football game for spoiled millionaires

    Having said that the Alex Mack touchdown at the end was hysterical

    The pro bowl is an absolute joke. It's bigger honor to get voted to it, than to actually play in it.

    I do hope you're joking. If not, then you haven't seen what Hawaii has to offer.

    Its a bit of light hearted fun after a long and fustrating season (for most teams). I say its all fine the way it is.

    I have not watched 60 minutes total of the Pro Bowl in the last 30 years combined. My youngest found it going during a channel check so he watched the last couple of minutes. The last touchdown was a dream come true for every offensive lineman, to bad half the defensive team was just standing around.

    Last time I was in Hawaii, Oahu, and Kaui, in July, my wife, and I thought "why did we leave San Diego again?"

    Yes, it is beautiful there, but SD is pretty damn nice.

    I have only been to Oahu a couple time when I was in the Navy, even though we stayed in hotels in Honolulu. It didn't do much for me. I will definitely go back to Hawaii, but never again to Oahu.

    I was at Honolulu Airport or Hickam AFB long enough to get some fuel in our jet, then it was off to Kadena AB in Okinawa. Then it was back to Honolulu airport for Customs, and then it was off to Beale AFB California. The longest time on ground was about 4 hours. It did not do much for me.

    Well, I have lived in Hawaii since 1996 and I would much rather live in SD. SD has so much more to offer.
    Speaking of Pro Bowls, I have been to 8 or 9 of them and never sat through an entire game yet.

    I lived in Hawaii for about 3 years in the late 80's, and looking back I wish I would've attended at least 1 Pro Bowl..Dan Fouts was making regular appearances at Aloha Stadium back then, it would've been nice to say "I've been there" just once.

    Hope your not still in the mid west, I watched 15"s of snow fall in 8 hours Tuesday morning. Only got a neighbor up here with a plow to dig me out around noon today. For all the shoveling I have done since, any talk of anywhere warm sounds nice.
