Hawaii Five-Oh, My Eyes.
The teams were different this year; instead of AFC versus NFC, the players were tossed into one large pool and drafted, playground-style, to play on teams captained by (and named for) Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders. Those two teams, shed of the traditional AFC Red and NFC Blue color schemes, were outfitted in neon superhero costumes from Nike.
It didn't help that the Packers had but one lone representative, running back Eddie Lacy.
He was certainly deserving of the general honor, shame that it had to be wrapped up in this clown suit.
To be honest, I can't remember which neon color was assigned to which team. Team Rice won the "game", although I don't have any idea if that was Lacy's team or not.
