So the first of the Senior showcase games is today on ESPN2 at 3pm in the East-West Shrine Game from Houston, Texas. While the game does have some exciting players, the real reason for the East-West contest is to raise funds for Shriners Hospitals for Children. Every year since 1925, this has been the case, and this year is not different.
What do I know though, right? Let's have the oddest pairing of individuals ever explain it to you. Here's John Elway and Justin Timberlake!
While I'm far too lazy to live-blog such an event, someone else is taking on the task for you this afternoon. Please stop by the fabulous Niners Nation this afternoon for College Football, fun and camaraderie. Here are some of the players participating today, and enjoy the game!
