This just came in from the Lt. Gov. Duke Aiona on the HTA announcing today it has rejected the NFL’s latest Pro Bowl offer:
“The Pro Bowl belongs in Hawaii.
“While I recognize the merit of keeping open the option of when the game will be played, I strongly encourage the Hawaii Tourism Authority to continue negotiations with the goal of bringing the Pro Bowl back to Hawai‘i in 2011 and 2012.
“The people of Hawai‘i want an agreement, and it is time to deliver.”
More to come.
