Pro Bowl Thoughts
So, what does everyone think of the Pro Bowl? The All-Star event for the NFL seems to take a back seat to every other sport’s All-Star game. It’s played after the season (though that will change next year when it’s done before the Super Bowl) and it’s an event that many of the players who have made multiple appearances decline to attend (Favre, among others). I thought Hawaii would be nice, but perhaps the plane flight is too much.
It’s on the mainland next year, so maybe that will bring in some of the stars (minus those playing in the Super Bowl, of course).
Regardless, you can swoop in and get the cards of the 2008 studs in football, which is a nice recap set for the season.
With news of the NBA cards being reduced, it’s nice to see there are still plenty of options with football cards.
