Drat, I'm out of the country on the 8th, but I'm glad to see the All-Stars back. There were some good competitions last season.
many of the all stars in last season's matches displayed phenomenal technical mastery and speed -- two levels higher than most of the winners in the regular competitions. the eliminations that reduced the competitors to the final two, Sanchez and Applebaum, were highly entertaining.
