Weekend Wanderings Pro Bowl Weekend 2011

Today, we’ll get to see some of the best players in American football in its “All-Star” game, the Pro Bowl. I think that moving the Pro Bowl to the weekend before the Super Bowl was one of the smartest things they could have done with it. No one used to watch it when it happened after the Super Bowl and no one paid attention to who was in it. Now, during the playoffs, I notice when the lineups change – none of the players on the Super Bowl teams will play in the Pro Bowl, so it can make a real difference in the lineups. That said, it’s almost the end of our season, which always makes me sad. Fortunately, pitchers and catchers report for spring training for baseball in a few weeks and I can get back to reading the Sports section of the Washington Post.

  • I’m guessing not many World War II Marine Scout/Snipers ended up with long careers in the movies. Lee Marvin did. There’s a fantastic post about him by Long Fade, who writes about record-cover art. It was prompted by The Music from M Squad, an album from the NBC TV series that Lee Marvin starred in.
