OT - MLB All Star Game thread

Submitted by CalJr3000 on July 13th, 2010 at 8:27 PM

This thread is for MGoBloggers watching tonight's MLB All Star Game.  Will the AL continue it's dominant streak?  All signs point to yes.  For now, tune in for the first pitch at 8:45 on Fox.


EDIT:  A few streams for those away from TVs tonight:

-Does Harrison Ford look to anyone else like he was suffering from Bell's palsy or getting over a mild stroke? He was only talking from one side of his mouth.

-Salma Hayek is still hot.

-Matthew McConaughey should never talk. Ever.

-Joe Buck just said "They're just kids playing a kids' game."  Does he think every single player in this game is Brett Favre?

-Matthew McConaughey, I hope you get a heart attack

-Salma Hayek:  more please

-Really, Fox?  Your big song is a Glee cover of a Christina Aguilera song?  Did you really have to blatantly advertise one of your shows?

-How bad is the AL gonna pound the NL tonight?

Last night I went apeshit over the pre-Derby concert.

Tonight I have absolutely no concerns regarding the pre-game music. The music tonight actually had something to do with the presentation on the field, which was great.

That Train song before the Derby was terrible, and why was Howie Mandel playing the mandolin?  Fox, and every other network, have no clue what good music is.  I don't expect indie bands or anything like that, but why must we suffer through girl rock before a man's game?  Our wives aren't watching, so why gay it up for the rest of us?

 Our wives aren't watching, so why gay it up for the rest of us?

If it's dudes only, no chicks allowed, then they should totally "gay it up," broski.

After all, it is a man's game, with a bunch of ripped men, running around in their manly uniforms, and swinging their giant man poles, while millions of men watch and cheer.

Also, really, "gay it up?" For shame.

$100 says the bottom of the first starts with Joe Buck announcing that Ichiro "fists ones to right for a single"

Also, occasionally between innings there'll be short clips of characters from the Simpsons, Family Guy, House, etc. making snarky comments about the game.


July 13th, 2010 at 8:39 PM ^

Nah, the FCC would censor that on the grounds that Joe Buck can't say "fists". And shouldn't say anything. Which he rarely does when he broadcasts, so I guess that's ok.

Hahahaha this poor girl is so overwhelemed. Clearly reading off a side list.

I just feel bad for the boy, he seems way too young to be doing that. Looked so relieved when he finished.

How many charities are they going to recognize?  Is it greater or fewer than the times they'll anounce the starting lineup?

Please - play ball!!!!!!!
