John Scott Is Living the All-Star Dream
Maybe this thing started as a joke gone viral, but who cares?
It's also fitting to see the crowd -- by inference, representing the legions of voters who put him there -- giving his introduction a standing ovation and loud support during the skills competition:
Interesting kit, too.
The league wouldn't let him wear the St John's IceCap uniform he's sporting these days, so he went with the All-Star jersey itself. They probably won't dent the merchandising radar, but it's cool to confirm Scott's comment that his All-Star T-shirt is completely sold out.
Now that the warm-&-fuzzy part of the weekend is in the books, Pacific Division captain Scott must get his mind set for an afternoon of high-end pond hockey.
Odds may well be his team will be the most inspired, because they'll all know his share of the $1million winners' prize will mean more to him than the rest of the All-Stars combined.
It'd go a lot further in Newfoundland than it would in any NHL outpost.
