2018 Pro Bowl open thread

Come watch the NFL all-star game with us!

NFL: Pro Bowl-AFC Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Pro Bowl is here, and while most people are spending the day pompously claiming what a waste of time this whole thing is and how awesome they are for not watching it, you, brave viewer, are rising above it all and happily watching the all-star game. Good for you, buddy.

Your choice may or may not be rewarded, but at the very least you’ll get the opportunity to see Darius Slay play cornerback one more time before the page is turned on the 2017 NFL season. You’ll also get to see T.J. Lang play guard, but that’s not going to be all that exciting, I can guarantee you that.

Either way, I’m proud of you. You’re ignoring the massive following of people that just like to complain about the Pro Bowl, even though no one is forcing them to watch it. That or you just have nothing else to do on a Sunday afternoon. But that’s fine, too. All-star games are people, too.*

*all-star games are not people. This is a nonsense sentence.

Enjoy the game.
