I'm going to be honest with you.
I tried to watch the Pro Bowl last night, and only made it through about half an hour before I had to flip to something else.
And yes, that something else was the Grammys.
I wanted to keep watching the Pro Bowl, I really did. But the star-depleted rosters and minimal physical contact made it tough for me to resist picking up the remote.
Almost 40 percent of the players originally selected for the Pro Bowl didn't play, which makes it less of an All-Star game and more of a pretty-good-players game.
Some guys chose not to show because they're dealing with various bumps and bruises, and others were unable to play because they'll be participating in a slightly more significant game next weekend.
Arguably the league's top two quarterbacks, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees, were in sweats on their respective sidelines. Reggie Wayne, Dallas Clark, Darren Sharper and a number of others sat out the Pro Bowl in favor of the Super Bowl as well.
Absences of Manning, Tom Brady and Phillip Rivers left us with David Garrard and Vince Young as the AFC's two backup quarterbacks.
That duo isn't exactly going to keep me glued to my TV screen.
Add in the fact that the fear of injuries during the game itself (a fear that is completely justifiable, by the way) makes the on-field action seem like a game of two-hand touch, and it makes for quite a snoozer as far as I'm concerned.
Still, it was nice to check the box score last night and see that Ray Rice led all running backs with 42 yards on seven carries (although he was the only running back on the AFC roster not to reach the end zone) and that Ray Lewis and Haloti Ngata combined for seven tackles.
Le'Ron McClain even got in on the action, getting a couple carries of his own.
One coaching move to pass along: former Ravens linebackers coach Vic Fangio has said goodbye to John Harbaugh and hello to Jim Harbaugh.
Fangio, who was replaced on the Baltimore coaching staff last week with the addition of Dean Pees, has been hired as Stanford's defensive coordinator. Stanford, as most of you probably know, is coached by Jim Harbaugh, the younger brother of the Ravens' head coach.
Fangio had previously been with the Ravens for four years, serving as a special assistant to the head coach prior to his one-year stint in charge of the linebacking corps.
He might be changing coasts, roles, and levels of play, but at least he's staying within the Harbaugh coaching family.
