The Motherfucking Pro Bowl (UPDATED)

Comrade PhysioProf is experiencing severe NFL season-ending withdrawal symptoms. Like many football junkies, I will watch the Pro Bowl. But it is not real football, and I’m not gonna really enjoy it. I’ll choke it down like a desperate alky rifling the medicine cabinet and chugging down a bottle of fucking Listerine.

UPDATE: Fuck me. This shit is fucking painful to watch. All the linemen’s uniforms are still completely pristine and shit. Ugh.

    I’m with you on that one. Shitty way to end the season.

    The withdrawal symptoms are always worst at the very beginning.

    You’re suffering withdrawals from watching guys in tights and helmets pat each other on the ass every couple of minutes? Pathetic, sad and sorry excuse, PP :)

    It’s an all-American type of withdrawal, that’s for sure. Definitive proof that Republicans everywhere are wrong about you.

    Couldn’t agree more, Prof, this is somewhere between flag football and a spring scrimmage. I don’t know why they continue it. Years ago the money these guys got for winning this kinda meant something but that’s not an inducement now. And being played right after the Super Bowl (that thing THE PITTSBURGH STEELERS just won, for THE SIXTH TIME) makes this event by definition anti-climactic. Like you though, I’m watching the fucker anyway as yet another step in the final weaning process.

    PS: Seeing Andy Reid reminded me of a line I heard during the play-offs by Michael Strahan. I don’t know if you heard it but here it is anyway. When they showed a piece of film of your man Andy in Bermuda shorts, your HUGE man Andy in Bermuda shorts, Strahan said, “There’s only two things that belong on those legs, pants or barbecue sauce.” Fucking hilarious!

    More evidence that watching sports is bad for you.

    I’m as serious a football addict as they come and even I don’t watch the Pro Bowl. I think the Pro Bowl is worse than not having football at all.

    Since they play (at least until the end of this season) on artificial turf, you can expect ALL of the uniforms to remain pristine. You don’t get mad at pristine uniforms when your team plays in St. Louis, do you? Well, on second thought, maybe you do.

    At any rate, I don’t watch the Pro Bowl because it isn’t football, I just like to be a contrarian.
