Charter a Private Jet to the NFL Pro Bowl
NFL Pro Bowl
The best teams in pro football face off every year in the Super Bowl.
But, before that, the best players in pro football face off in the Pro Bowl, NFL’s signature event leading up to the championship game.
Pro Bowl players – around 90 of them -- are chosen by votes of fans, players and coaches. And, while the game itself doesn’t mean much, the honor of being named a Pro Bowler certainly does.

The game has gone through many changes over the years -- in where it’s played, how the teams are chosen and even rule adjustments.
It was officially called the AFC-NFC Pro Bowl through 2013, with one team comprised of the all-stars of the National Football Conference, the other of all-stars from the American Football Conference.
But, in 2014, it was changed to have two NFL Hall of Famers serve as team captains who choose up sides (from the pre-selected player roster) a few days ahead of the game. NFC and AFC players appear on both teams.
And, while the usual game site has been Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii, it has been played other places and the league is considering taking it to stadiums outside the United States in the future. League officials believe they can drum up support for the game of football internationally if they take the Pro Bowl outside the country.
Even though players whose teams will be playing in the Super Bowl don’t play in the Pro Bowl – they are replaced by alternates -- there is still a large concern about injuries to players in a game played just for the fun of the fans.
So the rules have been changed to make the game safer. Among the different rules in the Pro Bowl:
- Intentional grounding is legal.
- No blitzes are allowed.
- Players cannot rush a punt, PAT or FG attempt.
- There is no motion or shifting by the offense.
- Kickoffs are eliminated with teams starting on their own 25 after the opposing team scores.
The players are paid with those on the losing team getting about $25,000 and those on the winning team getting about $50,000.
After the game
There is much to see in Honolulu before or after the game. You can see the beauty of nature on its beaches and nature preserves or any of the World War II memorials, museums and monuments. Here are some of the top attractions and things to do:
- The USS Arizona Memorial: Accessible only by boat, the memorial was built to straddle the sunken battleship without touching it. It marks the final resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors and Marines who were killed when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
- Diamond Head: The volcanic cone is a U.S. National Monument. A short hike leads to the crater’s edge. Visitors can see Waikiki and the Pacific Ocean from the summit.
- Go scuba diving, snorkeling or surfing.
- The Iolani Palace : The official residence of Hawaii’s monarchy is breathtakingly opulent. It has been restored and is a National Historic Landmark.
- Waikiki Beach: This two-mile stretch of white sand is said to be the world’s most famous beach.
