All Star... yawn!

So yes, last night was the All Star Game. At Yankee Stadium. Which is closing down at the end of this season. And yes, the Yankees have a great history of winning. Yes they have many legends. Blah, blah, blah!

Fans on the East Coast really think its all about them don't they? While I'm probably a mild baseball fanatic, even this game bored me to tears last night. The only satisfaction I got was seeing that it was well past 1:00 a.m. and people were still there hoping for some exciting end to a tie game. Well, wish granted... sacrifice fly to win it. How exciting is that? (please note my sarcasm.)

Jack, being properly brainwashed into the religion that is baseball, wanted desperately to stay up and watch the whole thing. We didn't let him. In fact, I was a little miffed because our Little League Majors were playing for the Division Championship last night, and Jack wanted to watch the All Star Game on TV. DH went to the game, and Jack and I stayed home. I turned on the game, and went to play Wii as he started watching it. Within 10 minutes, Jack came in to watch me play Wii because he was bored! BORED! Well, we could have been eating Chilly Billy's at the Little League Game, but oh well!

Our League won last night and they advance to the next level. Should be fun!

I enjoyed the 5 innings I was awake for (Virginia being in the Easter time zone makes being a West Coast baseball fan very difficult!) and I loved the highlights.

Did you see that throw by Nate McClouth to nail the runner at home? And that scoop/tag by Russell (I hate you wearing a Dodgers Uni) Martin?
