I didn't watch.
No way. Not believing it. Goodell has paid them off or it's total BS. Not one of my friends watched it and I think we make up probably the main demographic.
There was literally nothing on TV except for a couple of shows (House of Lies, Californication) that I watch on Showtime. That may of helped. I watched about 15 minutes of it until I realized Julio wasn't coming back in.
It's Football. Obviously the NFL has realized they have better numbers if the game is played the week prior to the Super Bowl (the off week) than when they play it after. I guess bad football, is still the best players playing football
I watched. Not the entire time, but did flip.
That's how popular the NFL is. Nothing comes close.
"Hey, hey, hey. A life. A life, Jimmy, you know what that is? It's the shit that happens while you're waiting for moments that never come."
i didnt watch one second
To see what football is going to look like in about 5-10 years. After all the law suits for injuries.
I haven't watched since I was a kid. It's an awful game.
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Cor 10:4
there is a pro bowl?
is that the top 25 bowlers in the land? that is alot of people interested in pins.
one word, GAMBLING. people always want something to bet on & the probowl is the only football game going.
I didn't even know that the Pro Bowl had been played yet. That game sucks.
MLS couldn't even crack a mill. SMH. Pitiful. Take that people who like to point out how awesome and popular soccer is. I would rather watch it rain.
Never Gets Old
because the NFL is like sex...even bad sex is good.
Apparently my wife disagrees with you.
Did Julio have any receptions?

I did not watch at all. It is horrible. The NFL is the greatest product on the planet, with the worst "all star game" in pro sports.
Haven't watched the pro bowl since I was a kid. The only all star events I watch are the dunk contest and the home run derby
