Rock the Cradle

The stars of the National Lacrosse League will convene in Denver this weekend for the NLL All-Star Game. This is the second time that the league, which has been around for more than twenty years, has hosted the game in Denver, home of the Colorado Mammoth. Last time, in 2004, the East Division All-Stars defeated the West Division All-Stars 19-15 in front of a crowd of more than 16,000.

Multiple events take place on Friday, including the All-Star Experience — a free interactive fan event full of contests, prizes and players — and the All-Star Skills Challenge, where players compete in a series of skills competitions. The night is capped off by the All-Star Experience Party, where you can join players at the Pepsi Center’s Blue Sky Grill. Saturday is full of excitement, as well, with the Hall of Fame Luncheon and the All-Star Post-Game Party sandwiching in the game itself, which begins at 7 p.m. “[I’m] very pleased to bring the All-Star game back to Colorado,” says Mammoth general manager Steve Govett. “The players always put on a great show, and we plan to make the entire weekend an unforgettable experience for the fans.”
