MLS: 2020 All-Star Announcement Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Like it or hate it, it’s time for the MLS All-Star game yet again. Personally I haven’t looked forward to one in years, perhaps that was due to no RSL players on the roster; but to me, it just seems like another chance for a player to get injured in a meaningless game. Honestly, the only parts I really liked to watch were the Skills Challenges. This year we finally have a player back in the game, well earned by Damir IMHO, we’ll see how he fares (and hope he comes back fully healthy).
