Your San Francisco 49ers links for Tuesday, January 29th 2019

Every year I think is the last for the Pro Bowl and every year it proves it can’t be killed. 2019’s just got rejuvenated with peak ratings of 8,931,000. Anything drawing in that much of a crowd is money. The Pro Bowl isn’t going anywhere.

I have tried to find ways to make the game entertaining at home. Nothing has worked. I will concede and admit there have been times where the game has been fun to watch...for a minute or two, and last night was no exception. The sad part is, one more game and football is gone. So we are left to watch the game, and be happy with it.

What does all this mean? Nothing other than I wanted to point out that the Pro Bowl is just shy of nine million viewers for ratings. That show drew in almost nine million. Good lord. We can complain, but it will still air.

Football is king.
