Fascinating Pro Bowl Trivia

Did you know that the combination of orange helmets and red pants has been shown to cause cancer in laboratory mice?

Did you know that the officiating team for the Pro Bowl is appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate? Okay, not really.

Did you know that someone actually took the time to write recaps of every Pro Bowl game ever played and post them on the Internet? That sounds like an activity out of a book called "1001 Things to Do When You're Sentenced to Life Without Parole."

Did you know that if you were watching the Pro Bowl and your house was picked up by a tornado and deposited on a wicked witch, and if you took the pair of ruby slippers that she was wearing, put them on, tapped them together three times and said "there's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home," absolutely nothing interesting would happen?

Did you know that Chinese physicians have conducted open heart surgery using only the Pro Bowl telecast as an anesthetic?

Did you know that even with six Cleveland Browns in the Pro Bowl, the game is still unwatchable?

Did you know that with all that, watching the Pro Bowl was still more enjoyable than watching the Cavs play the Nuggets?
