These fans made extreme sacrifices to help their favorite players.
And what are the coaches and officials saying too? Reading their lips is really difficult when you watch games on television.
As only the animators in Taiwan can break it down.
Did anybody actually watch the Pro Bowl from start to finish? Anybody?
Staging a non-contact football all-star game on the same day as a non-contact hockey all-star game is just poor planning. The NHL All-Star Game set the tone for the day's general lack of competitiveness.
America was unimpressed, as the wiseacres noted via Twitter:
Here were some of our favorite 140-character missives:
The Fake ESPN: “The only booths officials have been going to tonight are the Mai Tai & Hawaiian barbecue stands.”
Sports Pickle: “Remember the year Rich Gannon got eaten by a shark one year while surfing at the Pro Bowl?”
Grant Brisbee:”Spent the day yelling "DON'T TELL ME ABOUT THE PRO BOWL! I'M TAPING IT!" to everyone I saw. The important thing is that I amused myself.”
Eric Stangel: “The Pro Bowl hats look like a hat someone would buy when they don't want to buy the officially licensed Pro Bowl hat.”
Sports Pickle: “The Pro Bowl is probably especially weird for the centers: ‘Who is this strange man with his hands under my grundle?’”
The Fake ESPN.com: “Everyone's taking it easy, suspecting they might be in an episode of Undercover Boss and Goodell could be anywhere in a cap & sunglasses.”
Deion Sanders: “I apologize on behalf of the NFL. This pro bowl is ridiculous. All the lineman cut deals with each other to go easy and everyone else did 2.”
Darren Rovell: “Bottom Line: As the $ in the game gets higher, players are less incentivized to show any effort in the Pro Bowl.”
Sports Pickle: “This entire game should have had a 2-minute warning.”
Chris Harris: “Man just take a look at the OLine/DLine. It's funny. It look like sat walk thru.”
The Fake ESPN: “This year's Pro Bowl is sponsored by Snuggle, which is why the D & O lines have spent so much time feeling each other's jerseys.”
Eric Stangel: “The NFL Pro Bowl: Watch the game's greatest stars avoid any and all contact...”
Tripping Olney: “THESE TWO TEAMS ARE AWFUL DEFENSIVELY. HOW DID THEY MAKE IT THIS FAR?”
Sports Pickle: “Halftime speech predictions ... Kubiak: ‘Now let's get back out there and not get hurt!’ McCarthy: ‘You guys want to order some pizzas?’”
The Fake ESPN: “Andy Dalton & A.J. Green say all the empty seats make them feel at home, but the sun and lower suicide rates are pretty exotic.”
Tripping Olney: “I'M WATCHING THE SUPER BOWL. DARRELLE REVIS SHOULD BE BENCHED FOR LACK OF EFFORT. INEXCUSABLE IN A GAME AS BIG AS THIS ONE.”
The Fake ESPN: “Looks like Oahu is not Reevis' island.”
PTI: “Jogging alongside his friend Larry, Darrelle said, ‘Check out that football in the air, spinning and stuff.’”
Sports Pickle: “All the defensive backs were shot in the leg before kickoff. Only explanation.”
The Fake ESPN: “If the ProBowl were a piece of music, it just got to the ritard section.”
Sports Pickle: “I think we have to start asking if Cam Newton will ever win a Pro Bowl.”Pro
With a touchdown celebration is always fun. Just ask Bills receiver Stevie Johnson, who pretends to shoot himself in the left after scoring against the Jets. Well-played sir!
