I hope you’ve cleared your schedules for All-Star weekend. If you’re not snowed in (Chuck) or 2839.97 miles away (me), please go to the events and report back! At least the free stuff, like…
Red Carpet Arrivals [NHL.com]
Saturday, prior to the Honda NHL SuperSkills, players will arrive at the RBC Center to a red carpet runway. The players will arrive at staggered times from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. All will walk and interact with fans and media.
Schedule of Events (all televised on Versus):
Friday – 8 PM ET (5 PM here, leaving work early!)
NHL All-Star Player Fantasy Draft
Saturday – 7:00 PM ET
NHL Skills Competition
Sunday – 4:00 PM ET
NHL All-Star Game
This works out well for me since I’m moving out of my apt and all I have left is a beach chair and my television. I can tape up boxes while I watch the festivities. I’m guessing the draft will be my new favorite part of the event, because it’s likely to be more competitive than the actual game.
