Prince Fielder and the National League took care of business at the MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday!
Good Wednesday to EVERYONE and welcome into yet another edition of the Daily Noontime! It’s going to be a swell, but also, amazing day, right? OK, enough motivational advice, here’s Wednesday’s headlines and news!
Team USA defeated Brazil, but now, one has to wonder, where do they go from here?
What’s up and what’s good my friends? Happy Monday to everyone, including all the mother’s and father’s across America because really they deserve some love too, right?
Any who, enough ranting, here’s the Daily Noontime for Monday July 11, 2011!
* Sunday was an exciting day for the United States of America, as they turned their attention to a sport that no one truly cares about…soccer, but really, Women’s World Cup soccer ruled the airwaves, as fans watched Team USA beat Brazil in shootouts.
What did you think about the NFL Pro Bowl on Sunday? Did you enjoy the NHL All-Star game? Do you think that professional sports should continue to having all-star games or events? No matter what your thoughts are, listen to Mr. Matt Noonan’s thoughts on these questions, as well as hear his take on the Boston Celtics-Los Angles Lakers games too.
Great moments, great opportunities! What am I trying to say it like Kurt Russell did in Disney’s Miracle? Why would I even borrow those wise words to describe the past and present MLB All-Star Game? Seriously, this game is the biggest joke ever! It makes the NFL Pro-Bowl seem serious, which it really is not true for one bit. I am telling you that I would rather sit back, relax, and read awful grocery store magazines or watch CSPAN highlights of Congress that day instead of spending three hours on my couch watching this thing.
Do you like the All-Star Game? Does it appeal to you more than it did in the early 1990’s because if the AL or NL wins their team will have home-field advantage throughout the World Series? This is crazy talk! Why can’t Bud Selig just allow the best team in baseball, which would have the best record be the home team? Would that make more sense? I think so!
How about these awful commercials that emphasize, THIS ONE COUNTS! Why not play those during the MBL Playoffs when it does count! Why not play those ads before a high school graduation ceremony, when getting a diploma does indeed count! How about playing it before your first day of work, because working hard seems to count!
Playing in an All-Star game is probably an amazing feeling, but between all the smiles, hugs, high fives, and joking around that occurs, it really loses its meaning of trying to be a competitive game. I mean, do you think Dan Uggla was upset after making a couple of errors in route to another NL defeat last season’s summer classic? I doubt it! I’m sure he just shrugged it off and resumed play once the vacation from baseball was over.
Overall, I am not a fan of the All-Star Game and just think that it is a total joke! What do you think?
