Anybody watch the Pro-Bowl? I didn't. Never have, and probably never will. There are the occasional highlights from the game played on Hawaii's Big Island, like the crunching hit administered by former Redskins All-Pro safety Sean Taylor on the Bills' punter Brian Moorman, but usually it's a light-hearted scrimmage with plenty of botched trick plays and very little defense.
Ben Roethlisberger, making his first apperance in the Pro Bowl, finished the game 5-of-9 for yards and a TD. They won't suddenly become bosom buddies, but TJ Houshmanzadeh was the recipient of Ben's lone TD pass, a 1 yarder in the 2nd quarter that gave the AFC a 24-7 lead. Roethlisberger also led the AFC in rushing yards. His 18 yard scramble was the second longest of the game (Game MVP Adrian Peterson had a 39 yard scamper).
Steelers LB James Harrison capped his fine season with 3 tackles in the 42-30 defeat of the AFC.
Anybody watch the game? Anything memorable besides the long-since-played-out melo-drama that I'm sure the telecast tried to force on the TO vs. Jeff Garcia situation?
