At halftime of the beatdown the U.S.is putting on Cuba Pablo's selections for the All-Star Game roster were announced. As expected there was 1 and only 1 Rapid on it, (former) captain Drew Moor.
Lets be honest, with our play this year we probably didn't deserve to have anyone on the All-Star roster. The only exception would be Clint Irwin but since there's only 2 GKs on the ASG roster its hard to justify picking him over FSL's Rimando or Vancouver's Ousted. I'm sure though that both Mastroeni and the league wanted to put a Rapid on the roster to give us local fans somebody to root for. Drew is a great choice if Irwin is not eligible and I have no problem with his selection.
This is the first Rapid All-Star since Omar Cummings in 2011. Prior to that the only years we didn't have an All-Star were 1996 and 2003.
