Last night was the 2008 Major League Baseball All-Star Game. The American League won 4-3 in 15 innings. The game didn't end until almost 2 AM. Since it went so long, the announcers kept talking about how the American League All Stars Manager Terry Francona had such a difficult decision to make this night, and how they felt bad for him.
I, for one, did not feel bad. His decision was whether or not to let a pitcher pitch for more than one inning. Instead, I felt bad for the poor fan cheering for the National League who stayed up watching the game, would only get four hours of sleep, and then have to go to work the next day...at a job that doesn't involve getting paid millions of dollars and watching baseball all day. And that poor fan is I.
I feel bad for anybody who knew or cared the MLB All-Star game was yesterday. I thought the baseball players were still on strike. The only reason go to baseball games is to hope that somebody brings a beach bal to whack around in the stands. But nowadays since tickets are so expensive, whose got money left to bring beach balls?ReplyDelete
Again Tony is a sour-puss. Did you see the commercial with the little girl jumping on the wall to catch the fly ball? That was amazing!ReplyDelete
