Gentle Reader, welcome aboard IPB’s All Star Saturday Open Thread! We’re gearing up for a fantastic night of All Star super skills — okay, a diverting night of super skills — okay, a passable night of super skills — okay, seriously, there’s nothing else on TV tonight and at least the super skills happens in a hockey rink, right? We’ll have a game diary (updated every few commercial breaks, perhaps; we’re not sure just yet how it will play out) and an open thread during the event. Of course we’ll be watching on… drum roll please… VERSUS!
We really, really, really want that magnet board. At this point, nothing else will make us happy.
This morning and afternoon, though, we thought we’d revisit something we did before the final game of last season’s playoffs. We invited readers to introduce themselves so we could all get to know one another a little better. We’ve had quite a few new Irregulars come on board since then, and we have reason to believe there are a few of you Gentle Readers lurking off to the side. If you feel so moved, we have a few ice-breaker questions we invite you to answer in the comments. We encourage anyone and everyone to jump in!
1. What is your name?
2. Who’s your favorite team?
3. Where are you from or where are you now?
4. What is your favorite All-Star moment?
5. Who is your favorite Devil and why?
Bonus Question 1: Jay Pandolfo — Great player? Or greatest player?
Bonus Question 2: If Boxworthy is walking from NJ to Atlanta at a rate of speed of .006 kilometers per hour, and Mrs. Pancake is walking from Atlanta to NJ at a rate of speed of 1/4500th of a mile per minute, exactly how hot is David Clarkson?
