It doesn't seem like there is a single person excited about it.

If i was going i would be excited. Plus the fact that players who don't deserve to be there are isn't right

Yup, same here. I have no interest in the game itself.

Maybe the skills competition, but not the game.

Love the All-star game and the festivities (In all sports). Don't care about the "non-competitive" crap that surrounds it. Love the skills comp... if anything is lacking, it's the rookies v sophmores game. I remember 2 years ago it being especially terrible.

Depends on what I'm doing on the weekend. If I'm home, I'll probably have it on. If not, I won't record it or anything to watch later.

I don't see what the big deal is with hating on the ASG. It's fun and entertaining.

Yea why not. Even if its just to boost ratings ill tune in. And its really not that bad. I don't know what people expect that make them think its the worst thing.

If I had work or something though I probably wouldnt record it like I do a Rangers game though.

Took off this Sunday (forgetting about the Game though), so i'll probably have a few friends over, we'll get drunk and have a good time watching it.

I'll probably end up watching both the skills and the game. Not really excited about the game, but nothing else to watch.

Sure, but I'd rather watch the skills competition. Hopefully seeing both.

I might find the ASG boring unless Malkin and Ovechkin decide to fight each other or something. That'd be worth watching.

I'll check out the skills. I'll probably have the game on, but I'll only half-ass watch it. Same as the NBA all-star weekend. The skills are much more fun than the actual game.

Edit: So my real answer would be "yeah, I love seeing the stars but the game is kind of boring so I'll probably lose interest after a while and do other things around the house while keeping the game on. I'll run to the tv if Chara and Souray fight though..."

I'm busy on Sunday but I wouldn't watch it anyways. I've been boycotting them ever since Rory didn't make it in.

ASG is a joke. Fan balloting for starters makes it a farce.

None of the above!

Yes, because it's in Montreal. The All-Star game is still a joke!
