What’s more ridiculous than a Pro Bowl with 7-on-7 flag football as a showcase for the game’s greatest players? How about these WTF team captains – Snoop Dogg and perennial cheerleader Pete Davidson.
At least we have the connection with Snoop, a huge football fan and performer at last year’s Pro Bowl halftime show. His son, Cordell Broadus, was a 4-star prospect who committed to play Division I ball at UCLA. And Snoop himself created the Snoop Youth Football League, an LA-based program for inner-city kids. He is now paired with coach Peyton Manning to lead the AFC team. “I want to get back on the field in the NFL, but this time, instead of doing it, I’m going to go head-to-head with Pete and compete for the title of Pro Bowl Games Champion,” Snoop told PEOPLE.
“Headed with Pete?” We’re pretty sure Snoop could take on Davidson in just about any football skills competition you could dream up. After all, what is Pete’s pigskin connection? Well, he has an on-again-off-again bromance Instagram account with NFC coach Eli Manning. (It’s currently out again.) Does that count?
The real reason Pete signed up, besides the cheerleaders? “I’m doing this to impress my uncle Mike.” Let’s hope Pete gets hit by Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, something that would get Uncle Mike and America off the couch and cheering.
The NFL has its own comedy planned for Pro Bowl weekend in Las Vegas. While it makes sense not to destroy careers by having All-Pros beat the crap out of each other in an exhibition game, the traditional all-star contest has been replaced with events straight out of a 1978 edition of Battle of the Network Stars.
Are you ready for Pat Mahomes vs. Kirk Cousins in a fierce dodgeball match? How about that Cowboys kicker who missed four extra points last week in a game of Kick Tac Toe? If you’ve ever wondered how long Aaron Donald can drive a golf ball, the Pro Bowl Games are right up your alley. All we know is that with Pete and Snoop as captains, a high viewer contact is all but guaranteed.
