 Justin Morrow will be going to the All-Star game after all.

One of the bigger initial snubs of this year's event, Morrow was added to the MLS All-Star roster by head coach Ben Olsen on Thursday. The San Jose Earthquakes defender replaces New York Red Bulls defender Heath Pearce, who is dealing with a hamstring injury.

Morrow has been one of the keys to the Earthquakes' success this season. He is the only San Jose player to play every minute of every game this year, and he has one goal and two assists for the Earthquakes in 21 appearances

What do you think of Olsen selecting Morrow? Think he should have chosen someone else? Bummed by Pearce's absence?
