EVAN REN: Good football or not, FCA All-star game delivers on its true aim

Send me to a baseball, softball or basketball all-star game and I’m all-in. 

Along those lines, you could send me to an all-star curling match and I’d gladly go. 

But football?

The mere mention of an all-star gala surrounding pigskin makes me cringe because I know what I’m in for: Bad snaps. False starts. Rusty tackling. Blown assignments and dropped passes (if and when the passes are on target).

And since it’s impractical to stage a football all-star game at any other time but the summer, you can usually add 95-100 degree heat to the aforementioned list of attractions. 

Saturday’s 60-13 win by the Blue team over the Red in this year’s FCA Myrle Greathouse All-Star Classic at Shotwell Stadium pretty well drives home the point I’m about to make.
