With the Pro Bowl
and NHL All-Star game having both been played this past Sunday, and the
NBA All-Star weekend set to commence this weekend, The Gazette
asked the masses:
Which of the four major professional leagues has the most intriguing
"Baseball's all-star weekend. They don't wear those stupid looking
uniforms, but the home-run derby sucks because the favourite never wins."
"The basketball all-star weekend is the best because of the dunk
contest, the showboating and it always goes to overtime. And I'm not even
a basketball fan."
"Honestly, they're all shit."
"I would have to go with baseball. It's more of an individual sport,
as opposed to the other sports where so much more is involved. You get
to see the best pitchers against the best hitters you get to see
the greats of the game."
Western's Sports Relations Officer
"The NBA all-star weekend, because Steve Nash is playing."
