The All-Star Game... that I didn't watch much of.

I’ll be honest, I don’t care nearly as much about the All-Star game as I used too. I’m not sure why this is. I certainly love baseball as much as I ever have, but this year I nearly forgot it was on. I did watch part of it though, and I do have a few quick comments.

Please, for the love of all that is Holy, don’t ever let the American Idol winner sing the national anthem again. Fantazia whatsername’s rendition was AWFUL, a stupid, showy atrocity against man and God. Halfway through I began to pray, pray that God would end my torment and smite her, but God abandoned me, and allowed her to finish.

The Jay Leno-style invitations running through the crowd? Don’t ever do that again.

Ichiro hits a double and I-Rod a triple, good to see that dynamic top of the order didn’t happen in Seattle. In fact, the whole festival was a who’s who of guys the M’s gave away or didn’t sign. Tejada, Carlos Guiilen, I-Rod, Jason Schmidt, Vlad Guerrero, it was a smorgasbord of woulda-coulda-shoulda been Mariners.

Ya think after Clemens was rocked in the first inning anyone at MLB thought of maybe NOT stopping the game in the fifth for his award?

Minute Maid Park looks like an eight-year-old designed it. Toy trains and hills in the outfield? Please…
