Thanks a lot, NFL Pro Bowl organizers. Real good job of waiting until the last minute to announce that not only will ’90s hitmakers/2000’s casino headliners the Goo Goo Dolls be performing at the Pro Bowl in Honolulu this Sunday as part of the pregame festivities, American Idol’s Kris Allen will be performing the National Anthem as well. I mean, that’s what you call a power-packed combo consisting of average musicianship and complete irrelevancy.
The thing is, had I known that these acts were performing, there’s no way on God’s green Earth I would have gone ahead and made different plans. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the Pro Bowl and all, but that paint ain’t going to dry without my constant supervision. Obviously, the mere presence of the Goo Goo Dolls and Kris freaking Allen as part of action certainly would have tipped the scales in the Pro Bowl’s direction. Just thought the Pro Bowl organizers should be made aware of that. You really screwed up, guys. Big time.
