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?
