The Pro Bowl has become an event that isn’t watched and heralded as it used to be. It’s still a good thing to be voted into it every year, but many people criticize it for essentially being a free vacation and televised practice for NFL players.
Things have certainly changed and every year, fewer people tune in to watch the game. The NFL released this year’s uniforms for the game and it may actually have me watching the game for them alone.
These Nike Vapor Untouchable uniforms are certainly a far cry different from the red and blue uniforms that used to represent the AFC and NFC. This may be because there aren’t really conference-specific teams anymore.
These uniforms are cool and everything, but have you ever heard of the phrase “putting lipstick on a pig”? Yeah, it’s still a pig and this is still the Pro Bowl.
