Though it may not steal much attention from the Super Bowl, the NFL's Celebrity Flag Football Challenge 2008 next should draw a crowd to see some current and former players (and a pair of non-pro athletes) play a friendly -- though you can be sure it will be competitive -- game of flag football.

(Those in the photo aren't athletes -- I don't think so, at least)

Below is the unofficial list of players, according to AZ Central:

Former players

Doug Flutie, NFL quarterback.

Greg Townsend, Raider (Los Angeles and Oakland).

Otis Wilson, All-Pro, Chicago Bears.
