Conrad an All Star Too

Wizards defender, Jimmy Conrad, will not be playing this Wednesday against Everton FC in Salt Lake in the MLS All Star game, but Conrad will be there. Conrad has been named an "inactive" All Star for the game. Basically, under the league's collective bargaining agreement, MLS still has to name 32 players as All Stars for bonus purposes. But since the 2003 All Star game (minus 2004 when the league couldn't get Real Madrid), MLS has played a foreign team in it's all star game, meaning only 18 players get to dress for the game. So today, MLS released the other 14 players who were named All Stars this year.
