PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) - Thousands of military service members and their families crowded a small field at Pearl Harbor to catch a glimpse of their favorite NFL stars as they practiced in the rain in preparation for Sunday's Pro Bowl.
Downpours didn't stop kids and adults Thursday from shouting toward their favorite stars like Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson.
New Orleans punter Thomas Morstead toyed with spectators as he punted balls from a far sideline in the direction of fans behind a barrier on the other side of the field.
Fitzgerald says the practice served as a reminder of why the Pro Bowl is important to keep around.
Earlier Thursday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reiterated that the Pro Bowl won't continue if the quality of play doesn't go up.
