This is one of the most exciting weeks of the year for fans who follow football, which seems to be just about everybody in America.
For the first time since 1959 the National Football League all-star game, The Pro Bowl, will take place before the championship game.
I saw an interesting piece by Pat Kirwin on NFL.com today in which he said, basically, let’s give this Pro Bowl game a chance.
Here, here, Pat. That statement not only is fair but is the only one that could be accurate for the simple reason that no one knows what is going to happen in a live event that is not rehearsed.
It is so popular for the press to trash the game, and along the way they purport to us that this is the view of the entire country, when in fact television ratings (here I go again) for the last decade have steadily had the Pro Bowl as one of the most popular TV sporting events.
