Big Fun in Big D

Youppi_1Ran into some old friends on my way to the All-Star Game, one who used to work for the Expos and the other who came all the way up from Alligator Alley.

Everyone here is in a festive mood, except of course, for the media.

Apparently the locker rooms have been open to reporters for the past two hours. No one informed said reporters, however. We were informed that the locker rooms no one knew were open were about to close in two minutes. So, good times there. Nice job NHL.

At least I finally got my picture taken with Youppi.

-- So how tight is security around this All-Star Game? Mavericks owner and big hockey fan Mark Cuban just got zapped coming in through the X-Ray machine. The championship ring he was wearing set off the machine and it was discovered that the ring actually belonged to Heat owner Micky Arison.

-- Seriously, just made that last one up. But I did see the Pittsburgh mascot trying to sneak in. They made the bug-eyed Penguin take off his head and it turned out to be Sidney Crosby.
