NFL Pro Bowl Will Go On ... In Hawaii, Of Course

The NFL Pro Bowl is such a horrid, non-interesting event that the league had considered suspending the annual affair. It is really just touch football in pads, anyway.

NFL players, though, want their annual vacation in Hawaii and the league announced today that they will get it. The 2013 Pro Bowl will be held in Hawaii on Sunday, Jan. 27 -- one week prior to the Super Bowl.

"The players have made it clear through the NFL Players Association that they would like the opportunity to continue to play the Pro Bowl in Hawaii," said NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Ray Anderson. "We will support the players on this initiative to improve the Pro Bowl. We have had many discussions with the players in recent years about the Pro Bowl and they recognize that the quality of the game has not been up to NFL standards. We look forward to working with the players toward the goal of improving the competitiveness of this season's game."

"The players believe that the Pro Bowl is an important tradition," said NFLPA President Domonique Foxworth. "We worked hard with the league to make sure the best players in the NFL are honored for their achievements on the field."
