I'm betting Melo and Lebron will be both in the real All-Star game next year (in fact, they could very well make it this season), which would make them ineligable for the Rookie Challenge game.

I'm waiting for St. Louis to get something.

It's not NBA, or NHL, but Selig promised St. Louis the 2006 MLB ASG if their new stadium was ready. However, stadium plans took a while, and it's not 100% guranteed to be open in 2006, plus Selig is retiring after then I think, or maybe that's after this year, but either way, I dunno if St. Louis will get it in 2006, or any of the following years. Hopefully.

In the NHL, the Blues new arena is now 9 years old, so it's not exactly a hot spot. They were hurt by the fact that they had the game in I think '87 in the old barn, and just 8 years later wouldn't have worked. However, the arena is nice, and St. Louis should have it sometime within the next five to seven years in my oppinion.

Of course we don't have an NBA team right now.

I also think St. Louis should have a chance to have a SB, but I dunno how all of that works. I think the NFL should have an open list instead of only letting certain spots get it.

St Louis will probably get the MLB game in 2006, and I'm sure they'll get a Super Bowl one day... why shouldn't they?  The NFL is being downright silly rotating it between the southern cities every, what?, 4 years?

I'm surprised Toronto didnt get the NBA All-Star Game... with the new arena, tremendous fan support, and (at the time) an exciting duo of T-Mac, and Vinsanity.

St. Louis and New yOrk are the two cities both deserving MLB ASG the most. Friggen Houston is hosting their 3rd since 1966 the last tiem St Louis had one and the Mets lasted hosted in 1964 Shea is a dump so maybe it shoudl not be there, but what about Yankee Stadium it has now been 27 years since 1977.

Do you supposed they will do what Utah did back in 1993 and use mountains as a background in the logo? If so, will it be just like the current Nuggets logo? If you look close at the current Utah Jazz logo you will see that they took the same exact mountains off of that 1993 All-Star logo cropped them a little bit, changed the colors, and then just pasted them into the logo. :D

The only thing that will hold up St. Louis getting the ASG in 2006 is if the new ballpark won't be open by July.  From everything that has been said by the developers and the team, there is plenty of time to get the stadium ready for the 2006 home opener which is 3 months prior to the ASG. And it has to be, otherwise the Cards will have no place to play.  The new park is going to sit on land that is now partially occupied by Busch Stadium.  The Ed Jones Dome cannot be configured to support a baseball diamond, so the stadium simply has to be ready or the Cards will be playing some home games in KC.

As for the Super Bowl, that's another issue.  I am not quite certain that St. Louis is set up to handle an event of that magnitude.  The biggest problem the city has is a lack of hotel space in the vicinity of the Ed Jones Dome.  It's gotten better recently with the opening of the Renassance Hotel, but there need to be more rooms available.  Also, now that TWA crapped out and American Airlines has deserted Lambert Field, at least as a hub, air travel may be an issue.  That being said, I'd love to see it happen, but it just doesn't seem likely in the immediate future.
