2009 Pro Bowl Balloting is officially underway

It's hard to believe but Pro Bowl balloting is officially upon us.  No matter what your thoughts are on the game itself, it's always nice to have some of your team on the roster.  Last season, Patrick Willis was a defensive reserve while all-world punter Andy Lee was a starter.  I believe the 49ers had some alternates (BY I think), but I can't find a list of them anywhere.

So, when you get a chance head on over to NFL.com's Pro Bowl Ballot and vote early and often...or at least once.  According to the folks at NFL.com:

Fans who vote for Pro Bowl players will then be able to enter for a chance to win a trip to Hawaii to attend the 2009 NFL Pro Bowl in the Official Pro Bowl Sweepstakes presented by State Farm.  The grand prize includes an all-expense paid five-day, four-night trip for the winner and one guest to the 2009 NFL Pro Bowl in Honolulu.  In addition to air transportation, ground transportation, hotel accommodations and two game tickets, the winner and guest will receive two tickets to the NFL Pro Bowl Tailgate Party, an exclusive State Farm “I’m There” opportunity and will meet eight-time NFL Pro Bowl selection and Pro Football Hall of Fame member HOWIE LONG.  There is no purchase necessary to enter or win.  Fans can see NFL.com for details and official rules.

Balloting ends Tuesday December 9 at noon and the teams will be announced on the NFL Network's Total Access show on the NFL Network.  For those who don't get the NFL Network, I'd imagine ESPN will have its own Pro Bowl show.  The game itself will air on NBC on February 8.
