1) He plays for us, has 1,000 career games, and has never been an All-Star

More details to follow, of course. Just trust me when I say there will be some serious behind-the-scenes work. Right now, I'm figuring out what the probably benchmarks are for votes for a write-in candidate, and I think we stand a better chance than the "Vote for Rory" campaign.
I'm with you 100% on this Mayor. I've been a fan of Vinny since 1996, and I'd love to see him in the ASG.

Complicated question Moo.... to many ifs and what’s...

That said I doubt Nash will in the ASG based on the new environment he is in, easy street is over... I could be wrong though, it's up to Nash.

The Jackets will have a player in the ASG but I don't know whom yet, he will not be captain.

Only way any Cbus player makes it is if the NHL names one so the hosting team isn't embarrassed.
agreed

I wouldn't count on Nash making the ASG just yet. Based on the discussion on the mains before the trade, he is probably only the 5th or 6th best Ranger, and I don't think one team will get that many players.

JMFJ is Sid's BFF and Umberger is a Pittsburgh boy. i'm sure you can get a lot of Pittsburgh fans to help you guys out.

Just tell all of Columbus that Umberger is a Buckeye. He'll be the leading vote getter.

I actually considered that as a real strategy. It may yet be implemented.

The NBA All-Star game is nothing more than playground ball with no attempt on defense.

I guess ALL-Star games are ok for those who enjoy them, but to me I could care less.

And I get it, that with today's salaries no player wants to be hurt or hurt another in a meaningless exhibition.
Agree across the board about the games themselves, EK. None of the leagues have a legit contest. Even baseball, where the outcome has a pretty significant impact on the season.

Still, it's a tradition I like and I hope it doesn't go away. It's sort of like the state fair in any state. At this point pure ceremony (well okay, not really, but not as galvanizing as in the past, due to decreasing agriculture), but still significant.

Ballot box stuffing contributes to the irrelevance of the ASG, though. Let's see if anyone plays well enough to earn it?

Most likely they will have Nash as a captain. It just wouldn't make sense for Columbus to have one of their roster players as a captain at this point.

Having said that, totally OT I know, but the only reuse of that I liked was the only in Megamind, after he took over Metrocity. I think it was Megamind with "No you can't". Hilarious.

Although I will have to say your Boomer one was pretty funny.

Yeah, so I'm not really sure what can be added to this thread. I've got nothing new.

Hmf. I was hoping to go for an "Island of Misfit Toys" theme for avatars this year.

I was waiting to propose this as well. Commodore (who is still on the books) would make a good Yukon cornelius.
