NFL announces Pro Bowl Games, Jason Kelce provides an amazing list of competitions that should be included
Rest In Peace to the NFL Pro Bowl.
After years of the most boring all-star event in all of major sports, the NFL announced major changes to the event, including a flag football game.
The Pro Bowl Games will be held in February and feature a week-long series of skills competitions between the NFC and AFC all-stars. All of the events will lead up to a flag football game on Sunday, February 5th.
I’m all for it. I couldn’t tell you the last time I actually watched a Pro Bowl game but regardless, mixing in skills competitions and adding some “non-football” challenges between players throughout the week might sway me to turn on the television and check it out.
As for the non-football challenges between players, Jason Kelce was quick to provide some options to the NFL and the league would be stupid to ignore them.
Jason Kelce Pro Bowl Games Competition Wishlist
- Hot Dog Eating Competition
- Spike Ball
- Ping Pong
- Chug Offs
- Drinking Games
Yes please. Now we’re finally get somewhere. Let’s open the Pro Bowl Games up to all types of competitions like it’s ESPN The Ocho. I’d like to add that sports books needs to get on board with this so we can bet on drinking games and hot dog eating competitions. That would really put a bow on the Pro Bowl Games.
Make it happen, Vegas.
