2013 Pro Bowl schedule: Open thread

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Weather has delayed the start of the Pro Bowl. Clearly, this is the greatest test our nation has ever faced.

People, we are in crisis. Inclement weather has delayed the start of the 2013 Pro Bowl, pushing it back to 7:30pm ET. Hang in there. Our country has faced similar crises, including the Civil War, and managed to survive. We will get through this, together ... as one.

If you do decide to stick around and watch the game, here's an open thread to discuss the awesomeness of it with your fellow football fans.

We laugh at the Pro Bowl, but this red-headed stepchild of the NFL still manages to outdraw the World Series for television ratings. It doesn't quite pull what a regular season NFL game does though, which is why the league is fretting over what to do with it.

There are no Rams in this year's game. There is one cheerleader from the team there and Rampage the mascot is in Hawaii too, frightening the local children there for a change of pace.

Here's all the info you need to watch the game, which includes a free, legit online broadcast this year.

Players will be tweeting from the game, and you can follow that list here. I'll be live blogging this thing and GIF'ing the hell out of it over at SBNation.com.

If you plan to watch Sunday's Pro Bowl, here's how you do it:

Location: Aloha Stadium; Honolulu, Hawaii

Date/Time: Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013; 7 p.m. EST

TV Schedule: NBC

Odds: NFC by 2½, per Odds Shark

Interesting Facts: Last year's Pro Bowl teams combined for more than 100 points as the AFC won by a score 59-41, and both the AFC and the NFC have won the league's all-star game a total of 21 times. The last time one conference won back-to-back Pro Bowls was when the NFC won in 2008 and '09. The last time the AFC won more than one Pro Bowl in a row was when it won in 2001, '02 and '03. This is only the second Pro Bowl played the weekend before the Super bowl.
