If I buy a fanfest ticket to the 2012 all star game what does that entitle me to do?
There are a large number of things to do like video games, autograph signings, skills test, batting cages, photo opportunities and others. There are details on the All Star Fanfest website here: http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/events/all_star/y2012/fanfest_attractions.jsp
What team in the NBA does not have a player playing in the 2012 All star game?e?
New Orleans Hornets
Golden State Warriors
What do you think ticket price's will be for the 2012 NHL All-Star game in Ottawa?
The Senators are only selling seats for both the Super Skills and All Star Game. Lower 300s for the weekend cost $493 for a pair after all fees, or $123 per ticket. My best educated guess would be $800-$1000 for a pair in the 100s, though they will likely be behind the net, as the NHL reserves the best seats. On the invoice, there is no individual breakdown between the price of one event versus the other, though when it was in Montreal in 2009, scalpers were charging slightly more for the Skills, though the Game will likely have a higher face value.
Talking to a rep a couple weeks ago, 7,000 of the 20,00 seats at Scotiabank Place are held for the NHL for corporate sponsors, most of which will be prime 100 and 200 level seats between the face-off circles. Of the 13,000 remaining seats, the Sens expect all will be eaten up by current season ticket holders, but at these prices, I am somewhat skeptical.
Tony LaRussa will manage the NL in the 2012 All-Star game, thoughts?
LaRussa will not be the first retired manager to helm an All-Star team the following season.
There's precedent: Danny Murtaugh managed the 1971 World Series champion Pirates, moved into a front office job for the 1972 season, but still managed the '72 NL AS team. (He then came back and managed the Pirates from 1973 through 1976.)
So LaRussa coming back to (over)manage the NL All-Star team is, while uncommon, not all that strange, and kinda cool.
Plus! MLB will be moving the All-Star stakes from "decides World Series home field" which no one who doesn't work at US Bank Center, 777 E. Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee, likes, to "decides World Series home field, and one manager has absolutely no professional stake in the matter" since LaRussa won't be running any team come October. So that's a whole new level of valid complaint available to interested fans.
2010 is Los Angeles
2011 is Arizona
2012 is either Kansas City, Boston or Minnesota. An All-star game was promised to Kansas City sometime between 2011 and 2014 due to Kaufmann Stadium's renovation but 2012 is Fenway Park's 100-year anniversary. However, Boston recently hosted the All-star game in 1999 so that could hurt Boston's chances dramatically. Minnesota's new stadium, Target Field opens in 2010 and history has shown that cities with new ballparks tend to get the All-star game quickly. Minnesota hasn't hosted since 1985 but Kansas City hasn't hosted since way back in 1973! So my guess would be Kansas City.
Should Zdeno Chara Be Captain for the 2012 NHL All-Star Game?
I think Daniel Alfredsson and Dion Phaneuf will be named the team captains for a couple of reasons:
1) They both got voted in by the fans.
2) Eric Staal was a team captain during the all-star weekend in Raleigh last year. Chances are Daniel Alfredsson will be a team captain because the all-star weekend is in Ottawa this year.
3) The battle of Ontario. Enough said.
What does the two team names in the 2012 Nhl all-Star game STAND for?
They are named after the two captains.Chara is a defenseman from Boston Bruins and Alfredson is a Right Wing from the Ottowa Senators. They are the ones that get to choose the teams(Hence Team Alfredson and Team Chara). I beleive they wre awarded this honor becuase they got the most votes.
Still not official, but Kansas City gets 2012 All-Star Game, first since 1973. Good choice?
Yeah it's a good choice. Kaufmann Stadium is a really nice park, especially after the renovations they did last year. It deserves to be showcased. Also, after what they've been through with their team for the last 25 or so years die-hard Royals fans deserve something to get excited about and feel proud of.
What is your NBA all star game 2012 roster predictions?
It'll be something like that. Remember, the team takes in two forwards, two guards and two centers. So Anthony and James, while both SFs, could both start.
Your prediction for starting 5 at All Star game 2012?
What up XFlam3zX,
Remembering that the All-star game is determined by fan-voting:
Pg: Chris Paul
Sg: Kobe Bryant
Sf: Kevin Durant
Pf: Dirk Nowitzki
C: Andrew Bynum
Pg: Derrick Rose
Sg: Dwayne Wade
SF: LeBron James
PF: Kevin Garnett
C: Dwight Howard
Which team do you think will win the NBA All Star game? (2012)?
East has better talent.
But I think West will win, Kobe always play to win
while other superstar are having fun Lebron/Wade/Rose/D.Howard
Kobe will play very hard and win the game, and try to get the
All Star MVP.
1.Lakers don't have the best record in the west so Phil wouldn't be coach.
2. Not all of the players go to all star weekend if they are not participating so choosing your team the night of doesn't work.
3. Captains wont work because they will be more bias and they will choose teammates and friends
4. Because of China getting to vote Yao would have the possibility of being a captain.
5. This idea would take much more work than the system already in place.
6. Proof read you question before posting
7. No this idea is retarded
what is your NBA all star game 2012 roster predictions?
Hm... Great question actually, got me thinkin'.
(Each players name I put is in order. If one name is first they're the starter. The second guy gets bench.)
BTW I'm a humoungas Celtics fan, so im not hating, I just don't think many of them will make it next year.)
PG: Derrick Rose, Rajon Rondo
SG: Dwyane Wade, Andre Igoudala
SF: Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony
PF: Amar'e Stoudemire, Carlos Boozer
C: Dwight Howard, Andrew Bogut
PG: Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook
SG: Kobe Bryant, Monta Ellis
SF: Kevin Durant, Gerald Wallace
PF: Pau Gasol, Dirk Nowitzki
C: Brook Lopez, Tim Duncan or Kevin Love (Old School VS. New School)
What did andre iguodala say to luol deng in the nba all star game of 2012?
They talked about that on inside the NBA.
He was saying that Dirk & K Love look at the ball while shooting and he asked Deng does he look at the ball or the rim. Deng answered the rim.
I know some guys that look at the before seconds before they shoot, that's what I'm used to but I don't know anyone that look at the ball while they are shooting, maybe Dirk & Love do.
Can you name all the songs played during the nba all star game (2012) ?
It is likely one of these three.
Meek Mill - Ima Boss
David Guetta - Turn Me On
Jay-Z & Kanye West - No Church in the Wild
They were played during the Eastern and Western conference All-Star introductions mostly.
