Think about Jeter.... a .649 OPS, crappy defense, yet a starting all star. Think about not having to see the press fawn all over him anymore after this season.

Should've had the brass from the Minnesota Orchestra do the SSB ... that would've been awesome.

That is one nice looking ball park. Beautiful night for the game.

I like Jeter, but I would be OK with less fawning.

Before my last year, I did not announce in spring training that I was retiring because I did not want to deal with the media frenzy wherever I went - not to mention the tears of all the grieving fans.

I'm firmly convinced that the music rule for sporting events should be:

1. Upbeat tempo;
2. Keep it simple;
3. Keep it short.

Get on with it!

Well, that aside, I'd just rather hear someone ... better. That shot of her when she sang 'rockets red glare' and her tongue hanging out? Great.

I like this idea - maybe when the World Series returns to Target Field (if not this year -- next year, 2016 at the latest).

I guess they played the Canadian National Anthem ... but didn't see it broadcast, but I now see pictures from friends' Facebook posts.

Would have been awesome.

Is he going to ascend into the heavens during the seventh inning stretch?

(I did like how they blurred Mr. Mets head).
