NBA All-Star Weekend Beats the SuperBowl

I read an article in the San Diego Union Tribune the other day that I wanted to share:

"Jason Whitlock of the Kansas City Star took in the NBA's All-Star Weekend in Las Vegas, and this is his (printable) report:
'"All-Star Weekend has one huge advantage over the Super Bowl, the other sporting event that sparks major partying. This weekend is just as much - if not more - a women's event as a man's. This is probably a byproduct of the basketball game being a complete afterthought...
David Stern could cancel the game, and the event wouldn't suffer at all. Women would still show p by the truckload hoping to dance with Charles Barkley, Michael Jordan, Allen Iverson, LeBron James and anyone else taller than 6 feet 4.
A typical Super Bowl party will have 10 men for every woman. All-Star Weekend parties are split pretty much right down the middle...
Again, we're talking about The Perfect Storm of ghettofabulousness - booze, babes, gambling, celebrities, a dunk contest and no such thing as last call.'"
