Pro Bowl 2013: 'Preview' and TV schedule

'Preview' is in quotes, because who writes a serious and analytical preview of the Pro Bowl?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Okay, so the Pro Bowl absolutely stinks, but you watch it anyway. I know you're guilty. I am too. We all have the power to make this terrible, horrible, no good, very bad thing go away by turning off our televisions, but we don't. Unless the Yankees and Dodgers get to Game 7 in the World Series, more people will watch this game than any baseball game this season. Same thing for basketball, unless the Heat and either the Lakers (lol) or the Thunder get to a Game 7.

Josh Sitton and Jeff Saturday are the only Packers participating in the game. Clay Matthews and Aaron Rodgers were both voted as starters, but will sit out the game because of injuries. Sitton's selection is well deserved after a fantastic season, and even if I think the concept of the game is stupid, I'm happy to see him recognized.

Date: Sunday, Jan. 27

Kickoff time: 7 p.m. ET

Location: Aloha Stadium, Honolulu, Hawaii
