Closing Thoughts

I personally might be watching the All Star Game, I watch it most years. I mostly have it as background noise that I check on every now and then. However, I will for sure be interested in the Skills Competition. For me, that’s the most interesting part of the weekend. Another thing to note is that alongside with many of my colleagues, I don’t enjoy the All-Star Game itself, I enjoy the Skills Competition.

In another article that will come in the next few days, I will write about who I believe deserved to be an All-Star this year, but got snubbed.
