There is nothing more meaningless in sports like the NFL Pro Bowl. Most veterans like Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, decline the invitation each year. No one cares, not the players, certainly not the fans. It's a filler. A fluff game, with it's only true purpose being to extend Super Bowl promotions one more week. Frankly it doesn't make much sense for the leagur to continue to play the game. The actual television broadcast is not highly rated at all. In fact all the major networks Super Bowl special shows will do better comparatively to the game itself. This made me think of other glorified exhibition games, which ultimately sparked my muse for this week's list................Top Five Worst Games On TV
#5 Mixed Doubles Tennis - This shouldn't even be a sport, it's more of a country club summer afternoon special then an actual serious competition. Yet every summer the networks will want to get one more drop of ratings out of Wimbledon or the US Open and subject the nation to a glorified game of badminton.
#1 Texas Hold'em - Watching grown humans sit a table and pass cards around is a joy I just don't fathom. I can't think of a better way to completely bore yourself into a stupor. Yet apparently some one's watching this mess because it appears all over cable television on networks you would not expect. This is a phase I can't wait to pass.
