Unlike most NFL fans the Pro Bowl is one of my favorite NFL events to attend. Granted the game can stay or go, but it’s the week-long of activities, Skills Challenge, and practices that lead up to game day that are memorable. Players will pop up at activities all over and just hang out, have some fun, and meet up with fans. Practices allow fans to get up close to the action and be on the sidelines. Players will stop and chat with fans and you may just get lucky enough to get that picture or autograph that you have dreamed of. If you lucky enough to score a ticket to the Skill Challenge filming you’re in for some fun. Not only do you get to see the top players from the AFC and NFC challenge each other, but you can also meet up with Elite Super Fans, Cheerleaders, and Mascots from all of the different NFL teams.
Will you be tuning in to the Pro Bowl this year?
