G4TV.com is going to be streaming the StarCraft 2 North American Star League (NASL) finals this weekend starting on Friday at 11:00 AM PST.
The live event is taking place in Ontario, California with $100,000 on the line, the most offered for any StarCraft event outside of Korea. For the past three months 50 of the world's best StarCraft 2 players have been competing in the tournament. This weekend it's down to the final 16 players, many traveling to California internationally from Europe and Korea.
We'll be streaming the entire event right here on G4TV.com. All of the games will be cast by professional commentators including the Global StarCraft 2 League (GSL)'s casters Nick "Tasteless" Plott and Dan "Artosis" Stemkoski who are flying in from South Korea. Also on board to cast the NASL finals is Sean "Day 9" Plott, Geoff "Incontrol" Robinson and Andre "Gretorp" Hengchua. These guys will offer both analytical and color commentary for each game, so even if you've never watched competitive SC2 before, they'll help explain every single match.
For the full schedule and a breakdown of the final 16 players, hit the break.

Do you plan on tuning in to the NASL finals stream this weekend? Who do you anticipate winning the whole event? My money is on MC but I'm hoping either Boxer or Select can pull through and win. I do play Terran after all.
