Why the All-Star Game is Important
Reporters love to complain about the all-star game. Many of them will tell you it's a boring game and should be drastically changed. I too use to think that until two years ago when in a flash of NHL all-star game festivities, my son changed. Prior to that game, he couldn't care less about hockey. Now we goto about one hockey game live per week. We watch every game on the tube. He watches sports channels only. He plays hockey 5 times per week and wants more. I also built a backyard icerink, which he uses several times per week. In two years, he went from never having played a game to a top player in his age group; scoring 16 goals in 16 games. I'm sure this story isn't unique. The all-star game rocks.

NASCAR 09 for PS2
For Xmas, I got NASCAR 09 for PS2. I thoroughly enjoyed NASCAR 08, but got bored of winning 2 races in 3 and wanted a new challenge. I asked Santa for NASCAR 09 for PS2. I got it!

I've been playing for hours every day since Christmas. It's still a great game, but I find it a lot less challenging than the previous years. Now I win 5 of every 6 races and sometimes lap the field by 5+ laps. I play PRO-Legend, the hardest mode. The flaws in 08 game remain. I'm bored.

Major flaws are listed.

The game is thoroughly enjoyable, but flawed and too easy.
