    You missed Steelers vs Cowboys 1996, three meetings for them.

    Oh I so remember those days! I don't laugh about the current hatred I just sort of scratch my head while listening all the reasons to hate them. Oh well.

    While I disagree it could be worse. Steven Tyler could be asked to do a encore performance of the National Anthem. :sure:

    He's a Rock Star. I wasn't expecting a vocal performance like Kristin Chenoweth gave. I thought he did fine.

    Tyler's originally from my neck of the woods (Yonkers, NY), so I was surprised to see he appears to be a Pats fan. I guess he lives up there now.

    He spent the lion's share of his life in the Boston area. He played his first concert at my high school (Nipmuc Regional then in Mendon, MA, though now in Upton, MA). Aerosmith is, after all, a Boston band.

    All four teams in the Championship "wanted" to win, unlike my team that played their playoff game and just assumed they would win. (Still a bitter Pack fan)

    Thanks for reminding me, I forgot who the Packers played. And as far as ratings go for this years game, some think it may get a few viewers [link]:

    It doesn't seem to matter which teams play, for the most part. These NFL games just keep earning higher and higher ratings. NFL = juggernaut.

    2012 ProBowl and Cam Newton is totally overrated. Needs to go back to high school.

    It's the Pro Bowl; it's more meaningless than preseason.

    Yea, but I like the "what rules" format they are playing. No time outs, no replays. The game is going to finish on time, and its entertaining.

    I'm a serious sports fan, but I just could never watch all-star games in any of them.

    I used to watch the MLB All-Star game, which has long been considered to be the best All-Star game of all the major sports, but when Bud Lite Selig made it "count" and determine the World Series host (i.e., home team), I stopped watching it.

    Winters,...
    "Best All-Star game" is like saying best venereal disease, or best way to be drawn and quartered, or.....

    Besides, it's more of a spectacle than an actual game. I think making it count for something was a small plus.

    No, having it determine the World Series home team was just stupid. Absolutely stupid.

    I can't remember the last time I watched the Pro Bowl.

    I watched about a dozen plays last night.

    The worst example of the kind of play was when they lined up for a field goal. The snapper snaps it, the holder puts it in place - and the offensive and defensive lines just stand up. The defensive guy put their arms in the air AND THAT'S IT.

    What a waste! What a joke - and a BAD one!
