    I really want the Ravens to win just because I am a huge Reed and Lewis fan. I'm leaning 49ers, but I was pretty heavily on the "Pats are going to kill the Ravens" bandwagon last week and that didn't even come close to happening. Two weeks to think about it though.

    Speaking of the two weeks, I will probably lock this thread as an act of protest next Sunday. Anyone who acknowledges the existence of the Pro Bowl by talking about the Pro Bowl as it is happening deserves to be hit by a bus. Then again I'd have to figure out if the Pro Bowl is on Sunday or not and I'm not even going to put in the level of effort to check that.

    I think the next rule that comes out is going to be "no hitting anyone. At all". Just make it one of those competition things like I've seen on ESPN before. Like, the quarterback one had moving targets at certain distances, and they got points based on how close they got to the middle, and had a time limit/x number of balls.

    You can bet on the pro bowl. Gambling makes everything fun.

    Pro Bowl should just be an award and drop the game NBA should do the same. The only All-star type game that is worth watching is the MLB one because it actually means something. Pro Bowl could use some changes like being played 2 weeks after the super bowl and the conference that wins gets to pick kick return or kick in the Super Bowl the following year.

    An exhibition game should never, ever, ever mean anything. Ever. Double Ever. Forever. Forever ever.

    I'm not sure .. I think now that they at least won the AFC title he can retire happily. He 100% retires if they win.

    On the other hand I think Tony Gonzalez will be pondering that 5% chance of a return for a while.

    Nahhhh. The way the MLB does it with homefield advantage coming from the all-star is bullshit. The NBA all-star game is fun to watch because the players go all out and it's actually a really good game, usually one of the best in the regular season. The NFL one isn't because the players don't wanna get hurt so they play soft.

    That's why they don't care because it doesn't mean anything there is no point of getting hurt to play in a worthless game. If they don't make it meaningful then they should just make it just an award without the game.

    The only reason people watch the NBA all-star game is for the contest and whatnot. Most of the time the NBA all-star game is guys clowning on other guys like Shaq dribbling down the floor or Mcgrady's self lob dunk off the back board.

    McGrady and Shaq? So basically you haven't watched an all-star game in 5+ years.

    5. WR/TE/whoever slam dunk contest
    6. Freeze Tag
    7. O-line D-line tug of war
    8. Obstacle Course
    9. Longest Drive Contest
    10. NFL Texas Hold 'em

    I couldn't have hoped for a better Super Bowl. I would have been sad if it would have been the Patriots vs. Falcons.


    I am going for the Ravens. Can't help but love (metaphorically) Ray Lewis.

    I feel bad for Alex Smith, but I'm hoping for a SF win...but I honestly expect the Ravens to, they looked like the best team this week, plus they have Jesus on their side thanks to Ray Lewis and his special t-shirt.

    I hope the Ravens win to I'm already tire of the Harbowl shit though. When you listen to as much sports talk radio as I do you tend to get tired of the topics of the week instead of the topics of the day. List of radio shows that I listen to Dan Patrick, Jim Rome, Doug Gottlieb, Mike and Mike, Colin Cowherd, SVP show, Lose Cannons, Jay Mohr, The John Feinstein show,Hill & Schlereth,Freddie Coleman Show, and the V show sometimes if I'm tired of stuff like the Harbowl or the Manti teo shit ill listen to local radio but it's pretty much just about college sports here in Arkansas.

    I would say on avg I listen to about 10 hours of sports radio a day since I get to listen to it at work, on the way to work, on the way back from work and any other time in the car.
