HONOLULU (AP) — As bad as the Pro Bowl was by football standards, the NFL must consider its return to Hawaii a success.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The World Series’ television ratings are off to a slow start.
The San Francisco Giants’ 11-7 win over the Texas Rangers in Game 1 on Fox on Wednesday night earned an 8.9 rating and 15 share. That’s down 25 percent from the 11.9 for last year’s Yankees-Phillies opener. It’s also down 3 percent from the 9.2 for Phillies-Rays Game 1 in the 2008 World Series, which went on to average a record-low rating.
