NHL All-Star Finale

Southern hospitality triumphs yet again!

On Sunday evening, hockey fans across Canada heard TSN analyst Pierre McGuire, stationed outside the RBC Center, say this was the best All-Star weekend ever...fantastic...a credit to the people of NC and their spirit. He's been attending the event since 1990, he's Canadian and he's an expert. I would like to give him the final word, but...

Michael Farber, writing for, put this bow on the weekend:

...the clear winner was Raleigh, which reinforced its position as a most prominent, if not model, Sun Belt franchise.

Read his column. (While Farber is complimentary, he has an objective view of the local sports landscape.)

Y'all come again...soon!
