Sports Kings Pro Bowl Show-Farewell to our friend Randy Shortnacy Jan 2014

The Sports Kings lost a very close friend this week. Randy Shortnacy was heavily involved with our program in Dallas in 2008-09. He hosted shows with myself, Rod Johnson and Ronnie Brooks. We enjoyed every moment we shared with him on air and will miss him dearly.

2014 NFL Pro Bowl, The Sports Kings will give you all the details of the new and improved Pro Bowl this year in Hawaii. We will also give you our thoughts on the Richard Sherman story and how the weather could be the biggest story of Superbowl XLVIII.

Join us for this Pro Bowl Special, and tune in next week for our Superbowl Show.
