A half-hearted column about a half-hearted football game – OutKick


Pro Bowl Sunday.

Many NFL stars.

Lots of laughs but few tackles. Few tries. Nobody cared. I don’t care either.

They don’t try to play real football. I’m not trying to write a real column. Screw it!

Everyone great.

Micah Parsons tackled someone. Bad Micah.

Maxx Crosby 3 batted passes. Bing Crosby still biggest name in Vegas.

Weird rules. I don’t know what they were, something about fourth and 15. Yuck.

There was a flicker of chips where someone turned to someone. ESPN analyst Brian Griese was busy talking about Tom Brady and himself at the time. No one has mentioned or analyzed the piece because they don’t care.

Brady has missed 13 consecutive Pro Bowls. Genius!

Mac Jones (will never be Tom Brady) threw a TD pass in the second half. Also groped. Also Griddy in the fourth quarter!

Not real, Patriots fans. Sorry.

Stefan Diggs played in attack and defense. Trevon Diggs played on offense and defense. Yes, nobody really played in defense.

Cite here if this was an essay column. I didn’t bother to put the quote together because I didn’t try.

Why am I doing this? Why are these guys playing this game?

Why do people pay to attend?

Why does someone watch if they are not paid to do so?

Worst all-star game in all major sports. No question.

TJ Watt tackles for loss on double backhand.

Cameron Jordan great soccer player. Jordan will be a great television personality after his career.

AFC punter AJ Cole did not punt. An Informed Nation ate two hot dogs at halftime during a sideline interview. Perhaps the most entertaining moment of three whole hours.

Wait, the NFL kept the stats from that game?

All six QBs threw picks. Brady no longer a genius.

$80 for winners and $40 for losers. No injuries reported so everyone wins.

Except the fools who paid to watch the game.

A real NBA game followed a fake NFL game. Pro Bowl odds even higher, book it.

Next step: Super Bowl week.
