THE Pro Bowl is this Sunday, a game which is almost as exciting and hard-hitting as the local news this week. Oh sure, we could add some filler by regurgitating innocuous articles about Queens in general or elaborating on vapid press releases. Much as the NFL does with meaningless ‘Battle of the Network Stars’ type contests the day before with players competing in muscle-bulging tank-tops and too much of a smile. Or we could do rote interviews with our sponsors, much like the NFL does with those players in attendance – none of whom will be participating in the actual Super Bowl – about who will win the big game.
We won’t do the above just to gain eyeballs because that would be demeaning to our readers, much like it would be for Pro-Bowlers, except the latter get paid $34k to $67k to play in the game, the moniker ‘Pro-Bowler,’ and a free trip to Orlando. You on the other hand get an extra nine minutes of sleep, now that’s invaluable!
