I'm no NFL fan, but from what I've heard it's to reduce the effect of any injuries that may happen at the all-star game.
As for favourite, it's definately the NBA. The dunk contest is always fun to watch compared to any other "skills" games in other sports. Plus, the games themselves are fun to watch. Yes, they're just pick up games with no real competition, but it's usually all about showboating for these guys.
The other ones I don't care for much of the weekend, I only enjoy the homerun derby and the skills shooting for hockey.
