The Bulls are playing another back-to-back, so familiar this month. At least these two are both home games. As far as the "Skills Competition" the NHL is having prior to tomorrow's All-Star Game, it seems to me that it would be like watching baseball pitchers try to throw their fastest fastball, or seeing how far an outfielder could throw. But to each sport its own.â†µâ†µ
