Most people watch sports in Vegas because they have wagers on the outcome of the game. But true sports fanatics should step away from the betting window and check out this cool facility that gives you a chance to become a sports star by conquering various challenges. Navigate a puck through a hockey obstacle course; test your hand-eye coordination as a football player; clock your arm with a measured baseball pitch; become a pit crew member on a NASCAR racing team; and more. In between are various bits of memorabilia including signed jerseys, winning game balls, trophies, photos, and the like. At the end you are awarded your pro-sports “contract” complete with your name and face on the cover of a virtual sports magazine before being sent into the sports-obsessive’s dream of a gift shop.
