As Major League Baseball dedicates a few days to the most talented of the talented in its annual All Star Break, a category of player remains ignored and unrepresented in the spotlight: the weak links.
Scheduling the NHL All Star game for the bye weekend before the Superbowl was clever.

I tuned in for the actual entertaining portion of the festivities: the skills competition.
