The newly elected Mayor of Honolulu, Kirk Caldwell, went on record to express appreciation for the opportunity to host the NFL Pro Bowl.
The Pro Bowl is more than just a game day in Honolulu, there are a series of events connected to the extravaganza. The NFL Pro Bowl is much more than just a tourist attraction in Hawaii. It's an honored tradition.
Jan. 22, US News reports, "Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell made a public plea to keep the Pro Bowl in Honolulu, saying perhaps the city and state don't express their appreciation often enough for the game being held on the islands."
The NFL Pro Bowl is a highly anticipated event for the State's residents and visitors alike. Hawaii doe's not have an NFL professional football team presence.
The Pro Bowl offers a first class ticket to see the greatest players in the NFL in action. There have been much debate throughout the NFL organization on whether to cancel the Pro Bowl game, permanently.
