Roy Williams Gets Another Free Pass to Hawaii? Really?
Another sportsy item for reading, possibly with shoulders slumping and eyelids closing: Roy Williams was just added to the NFC's Pro Bowl squad, making this the fifth consecutive Pro Bowl for the Cowboys strong safety who really shouldn't be getting that free ticket to Honolulu. (Seems like a nice guy, but, c'mon.) After all, Williams received the fourth-most votes at safety, behind slain Washington Redskin Sean Taylor, Minnesota Viking Darren Sharper and Cowboy teammate Ken Hamlin. Speaking of, the NFL also just announced that Hamlin, formerly announced as a reserve for the Pro Bowl come February, will now start the game in place of Taylor. --Robert Wilonsky
