Did you know the Pro Bowl was played Sunday?

For all the undying love and adulation that the NFL receives, it's always been befuddling as to why nobody watches their All-Star game. The NFL Pro-Bowl, while a nice trip to Hawaii and great honor for those players not in the Super Bowl, is a complete and absolute dud for TV viewers.

In case you were wondering, they played the game on Sunday and the NFC won 55-41 after getting an early 42-0 lead. Your MVP, the insufferable DeAngelo Hall of the Redskins.

We don't know, save one of our friends, who actually watched the game, broadcast by FOX as part of their turn broadcasting the Super Bowl.

In case you missed them...and we're guessing most of you did, here are your highlights:

We question as to whether the NFL should consider scrapping this game. Sure, its a great trip and honor for the participants like we said earlier, but how do you sell it to a mass market? It comes the week before the Super Bowl. And in the case of this year, the Super Bowl may be the last NFL game we see in awhile.

What do you think? Did you watch? Did you care? Why aren't you interested? We want to know...
