The 2014 Pro Bowl is finally here. It's like Christmas all over again. Mele Kalikimaka everyone! You know, cuz its in Hawaii? Aaaanywho, I know you were waiting all year for this day to finally arrive. Especially with the new format which makes the game so much more hip and poppin' because it is no longer AFC vs NFC unconferenced fantasy football style. I'm guessing that must mean the players are going to actually try this year.
Here is the information you need to know:
What: NFL Pro Bowl 2014
Where: Aloha Stadium, Honolulu Hawaii
When: Sunday, January 26, 4:30 pm Pacific Time (7:30 ET)
Online: NBC Sports Live Extra
Rosters: Team Rice | Team Sanders
Coaches: Ron Rivera | Chuck Pagano
The list of Pro Bowlers was still decided by a combination of fan vote and NFL expert dart boards. But this year they had Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice pick from that list of Pro Bowl players to form their teams. This means that some teams will have players on both sides of the ball. Who do you root for? It's all so much more exciting and suspenseful to not have a preference as to who wins and who loses. Holla!
Raiders fans don't have to worry about their favorite players facing each other as the Raiders have only one representative at this year's Pro Bowl -- fullback Marcel Reece. This is his second trip to Honolulu. He went last season as a first alternate replacement when Vonta Leach's Ravens squad played in the Super Bowl. This year, Reece was named to the team outright along with fullback Mike Tolbert of the Carolina Panthers.
I'm so damn excited I ground my teeth to nubs tossing and turning in bed last night. Which is great because baby food and Wendy's Frosties pretty much makes up my entire diet anyway.
