Now They Tell Me: The Goo Goo Dolls *AND* Kris Allen To Perform At Pro Bowl

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.

    Well – don’t know if the pre-game show with the Goo Goo Dolls will even be televised – but I know for sure I’m going to be tuning in to watch Kris Allen sing the national anthem. Tons of his fans who were never interested in football before watched some Arkansas games when they heard he was there as a spectator – hoping for a glimpse of him in the crowd. Imagine those who will tune in to see him actually sing! Good move, Pro Bowl Organizers – a lot of women would be watching anyway but for those who wouldn’t, this is a great way for their guys to get them to join them on the couch! Kris Allen is HOT and sings like an ANGEL!!

    I don’t think the Pro Bowl screwed up. I think it’s Weed here. Kris Allen knocked the socks off everyone. Read Twitter. Even non Idol fans thought he was awesome. People who were prepared to hate him, fell into his spell.

    Just think…it could have been worse. You could have been listening to Christina Aguillera mess up the words of the National Anthem at the SuperBowl or watching the Black Eyed Peas look definitely out of their element.

    I think the planners of the Pro Bowl did indeed know how to put on a good show. The Goo Goo Dolls were pretty darn good and Kris freakin’ Allen….was Kris freakin’ awesome.

    So maybe one shouldn’t cast stones lest they be thrown back.
