The NFL Pro Bowl happened this weekend and it was actually a fun experience to watch it. Lots of talented players participated, there was a fun skills competition and there was a high school championship game where one player apparently forgot it was flag football.
The NFL has had issues with making the Pro Bowl interesting. In the past, a lot of players were not invested because of injury reasons, but for some reason this year was different. Players were actually trying. The NFC defense, made up of a bunch of Seahawks players (Richard Sherman, Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett, Bobby Wagner, KJ Wright) , were really impressive. On offense, there was a ton of talent, the favorite of mine being Drew Brees, who only came slightly ahead of Philip Rivers and Travis Kelce.
It was nice to see such a talented group of players actually trying, showing off their skills without injuring anyone and having fun. I am hoping that the NFL keeps this up. It is great to see your favorite players all playing together.
