Many of the NFL's biggest stars are gathered in Hawaii this weekend for the annual Pro Bowl. The NFC takes on the AFC Sunday night at Aloha Stadium. Green Bay Packers quarterback and MVP favorite Aaron Rodgers starts for the NFC, while Pittsburgh Steelers signal-caller Ben Roethlisberger has been selected to start for the AFC. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning are not participating as they prepare with the rest of their teams for Super Bowl 46 next Sunday in Indianapolis.
The NFL is embracing social media this year, allowing players to tweet before and during the Pro Bowl. The league Prohibits such activity during the regular season and playoffs, but will set up a computer on each sideline to encourage players to communicate with fans. The NFC beat the AFC 55-41 last year.
