2013 Pro Bowl: Kickoff Time, Rosters, And Open Thread


It's the second-to-last football game of the 2012-13 NFL season, and it will kick off the week leading up to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans on Sunday, February 3.

Yes, it's the annual AFC/NFC Pro Bowl, live from beautiful Hawai'i. While most of the players that were originally voted in have opted out for various reasons, there is still quite a bit of talent on display this afternoon. Adrian Peterson has said that he's not going to play half-speed in this one. Peyton Manning is attempting to get his teammates to play hard for this one, and with rumors of the game possibly going the way of the dodo in the near future, maybe they'll listen to his pleas.

But I doubt it.

Still. . .we're football fans, and this is football. At least some of us are going to watch this one, right?

Here are all the particulars for today's contest.
