The Pro Bowl is full of gimmicks and the 2013 version was no different. Of course this one was actually kind of cool.

Jeff Saturday spent most of his career snapping the ball in Indianapolis to quarterback Peyton Manning. Every game that Manning played in Indianapolis occurred with Saturday as the center.

This year both players left Indianapolis as Manning went to Denver and Saturday headed to Green Bay. Both ended up in Hawaii.

With Saturday set to retire the center was allowed to snap the ball to Manning one last time in the Pro Bowl.

It should come as little surprise that the snap was clean.

Afterwards during a sideline interview, Saturday said, “After doing it that long with him, we figured it was our last run together, might as well get one more.”

“That was something special I’ll always remember.”
