    Pro Bowl

    I dont know about everybody else,but I love the Pro bowl

    Last game of the season,season sure went by FAST!

    We get to see some Rams play.

    Hoping Torry gets MVP.

    The Uniforms are cool(well at least the NFC unis are cool).

    I wish they still had the Supe Champs play the college all stars I really miss that.

    Those games were awesome and very entertaining. Here's something I found on them:

    Arch Ward, the sports editor of the Chicago Tribune, in 1934 came up with the idea of a pre-season game between the NFL champions and a team of college all-stars to benefit the newspaper's charity fund. All of the games were played at Soldier Field in Chicago.

    The first meeting, on Aug. 31, 1934, ended in a scoreless tie. In the early years, the college players did pretty well against the pros. The NFL champions dominated in later years, however, losing only once after 1955.

    In 1976, the game was suspended and finally called off because of a heavy rainstorm late in the third quarter, with the Pittsburgh Steelers holding a 24-0 lead.

    That was the last game of the series. There were two main reasons for the demise. First, pro football salaries had reached a much higher level, many college players who were unwilling to take part in the game for fear of injury. Second, fan interest had declined substantially because of the NFL's dominance.

    Re: Pro Bowl

    Maybe this is not for this thread, but it seems that I'm still aggravated by the officiating in the last SB, but again in the Pro Bowl, a couple of minutes ago, they didn't rule a safety for a fumble on a Punt Return, and let me tell you something, there is NO WAY the ump #56 couldn't see that ball hitting mathis on the leg. Is freaggin frustrating see were the officiating is going.
    I know is the pro bowl and everybody is having fun, but is SO FRUSTRATING watch those "professionals" acting like clowns

    The very first game that the rams played as the LA rams was against the college all stars in 1946.
