Pro Bowl at Aloha Stadium

My children and I attended the Pro Bowl at Aloha Stadium!
As my son pointed out in line, this the one time
that it is OK to wear a variety of jerseys!

The National Anthem always gives me goosebumps.
We now jump to extra large photos ...

Joint Honor Guard from Pacific Command

The National Anthem was sung by an Air Force Sergeant.

The coin toss included the ranking admiral on the island.

The cheerleaders wore white "go go" boots except for:
- two teams wore white cowboy boots
- two teams wore black "go go" boots
- one team wore red "go go" boots
- one team wore white Keds. 

The Mascots goofing off ....

... they were entertaining!

And we watched football!

During half time, each service marched onto the field.
First was the Coast Guard from Barber's Point.
The Guardians are smaller than the other services.

Upper right is the Army in their new "blue" uniforms.
Lower right is the Navy in traditional "sailor" uniform.

Upper left are the Marines.  Lower left is the Air Force.
In the middle is the Old Guard Drill Team.

Notice the pregnant Air Force woman in the
third row from right, second from bottom.

We had a great day!

My kids were exhausted from cheering!

  7. Wonderful pictures, Kim! I agree with Danielle - I loved the singing of the National Anthem, he did a terrific job. Glad you and your sons got to enjoy it up close and personal. I looked for you when they showed shots of the crowd, but alas - it wasn't to be. Thanks for the recap.
