Nike Changing Pro Bowl Uniforms

Nike is drastically changing the look of the NFL's Pro Bowl uniforms. The shoe and apparel giant is doing away with the traditional blue and red look worn by the NFC and AFC for years. In its place will be bright orange- and neon yellow-trimmed uniforms, the latter similar to that of the Oregon Ducks. The change comes as the league also alters the Pro Bowl format from conference vs. conference to rosters constructed through a draft-lottery. The two leading vote-getters will serve as captains that pick teams with the help of Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders and two NFL.com fantasy football champions. The Pro Bowl is set for January 26th at Hawaii's Aloha Stadium.

It involved race, and it was done it a church.
