I'll Take The AFC And Lei The Points

Boston Globe writer Pat Bigold wrote Wednesday that the weather for the AFC’s first Pro Bowl practice in Honolulu was, like the New England Patriots, slightly less than perfect. Here’s an excerpt from Bigold’s column:

Like the Patriots' offensive line last Sunday, the Hawaiian weather was not at its best as the AFC held its first practice for the Pro Bowl yesterday.

The sky above the Kapolei High School football field, 24 miles west of Waikiki Beach on Oahu's leeward coast, was thick with gray clouds. There wasn't a hint of the subtropical sun that has earned Hawaii the nickname "paradise."

But it didn't rain, and temperatures did hover in the mid 70s.
But the shirt-sleeve climate was no consolation for the several Patriots who are now in Hawaii.

The forecast for Sunday’s Pro Bowl calls for mostly sunny skies with a high a 79 and a 20 percent chance of rain. Darn near perfect, if you ask me.
