This year's Pro Bowl, played in Honolulu, Hawaii, will be televised live on ESPN at 7:30 PM ET (2:30 PM HT) on February 8.

Sponsored by Motorola and AT&T Wireless, fans may vote on the NFL's website,, and can also cast their ballots through November 30 at more than 1,000 AT&T Wireless stores nationwide. For those on the go, Motorola and AT&T Wireless also offer "TEXTdown" wireless balloting. The option gives fans the chance to vote on their Motorola handsets via AT&T Wireless service for their favorite players in the quarterback, running back, wide receiver, defensive end, outside linebacker and cornerback positions.

All fans voting through "TEXTdown" and at participating AT&T Wireless stores will be automatically entered for a chance to win one of four trips for two to the Pro Bowl in Motorola's "Hawaiian Vacation" sweepstakes. The winners will be announced December 18 on the 2004 Pro Bowl Selection Show on ESPN.

The consensus ballots of NFL fans, players and coaches each count one-third towards determining the 43-man rosters that will represent the American and National conferences at Aloha Stadium. Players and coaches will vote on December 15-16.

The NFL is the only professional sports league that combines voting by fans, players and coaches in determining its all-star teams. The NFL became the first professional sports league to offer online voting in 1995.
