Yes, the all-star game has become a meaningless joke, unfortunately, IMO.

That's true for all sports. Who cares. It's not meant for us. It's meant for the 10 year old version of ourselves that thought it was really cool all of the stars were on one field.

At least the game doesn't determine who gets home field advantage in the World Series. Which may be the dumbest sports decision ever.

Just voted.  If you read the fine print at the bottom, people who vote will get a free, non-renewing two-week subscription to MLB-TV for July 12-26.  So that is something.

Thanks for the tip. I wasn't going to vote but now I am.

And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away.
