The 2015 NFL Pro Bowl is today and. . .well, let's be honest. You don't care. Particularly if you're a fan of the Minnesota Vikings, as the purple and gold are one of the few teams that are not represented in this year's game in any way, shape or form.
Yes, apparently there are about a dozen safeties in the National Football League that are better than Harrison Smith. Which is, you know, at least eleven more than I would have estimated.
The only connection the Vikings have to this year's Pro Bowl is that former Vikings' wide receiver Cris Carter is one of the honorary captains for this year's game (along with Michael Irvin), and "drafted" one of the teams that will be participating today. Lest we forget, the Pro Bowl is no longer AFC vs NFC, but rather everyone gets thrown into one pool and drafted by the two honorary captains.
So, if you're going to be watching and railing about how ridiculous this entire charade is, here is all the information you're going to need.
Game Date: Sunday, 25 January, 2015
Game Location: University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ
Game Time: 7 PM Central (same time as the WWE Royal Rumble. . .just sayin' is all.)
Rosters: See the rosters for both "Team Carter" and "Team Irvin" right here.
Online Streaming: I'm guessing the Watch ESPN app will have it.

Line: You know, if you're betting on the Pro Bowl, you might want to click this link instead.
So, that's what you need if you're going to be watching the second-to-last "game" of the 2014 NFL season, folks. Consider this an Open Thread if you're going to be watching.
