The Pro Bowl is really stupid. Everybody knows this. But for the “journalists” who have to cover the “game,” it’s got to be especially painful this year. While they were “stuck” in Arizona all weekend, some of their colleagues were back at home covering the important” deflategate issue, asking tough, probing questions about the firmness of Tom Brady’s balls.
Nobody was more unhappy to be covering the Pro Bowl than Chris Berman. The ESPN stalwart was visibly annoyed at several points during his network’s Pro Bowl coverage on Sunday.
