It's a weekend for the stars in the sports world with the NHL all star game and the Pro Bowl both happening this weekend.
I am not particularly interested in either game but I do like a good skills competition so I might tune in for some of the NHL skills competition. The NFL seems to have split their skills competition between Thursday (yesterday) and Sunday so unlikely I will catch any of that since I missed the first half.
I am a bit old school when it comes to skills competitions. Give me fastest skater, hardest shot in NHL. 3 point and dunk contest and NBA. QB accuracy in NFL and my personal favourite the Home Run Derby in MLB. But the leagues are always trying to come up with novel ways to get fans interested in these events. Although it was a bit corny, I did really enjoy the NHL skills competition from a couple years ago in Vegas where they made many of the events vegas themed.
Shill me what events you like and dislike surrounding the various all star games (doesn't have to be limited to the skills competition- could be rookie games, legends games, celebrity games etc).
Odd to not have a Friday without a pick 'em to do. Happy Friday regardless.
Sats for all, GR
