I’m back from vacation so it’s time to start complaining about the little things in sports that drive me nuts   ….  like say  ---  …     FOX ALL STAR GAME PROMOS #$#$%!*&%!#!
 
Are we really supposed to believe that major league players really care about who wins the all star game ???   that players really care about home field advantage for the world series ??    that bragging rights between the 2 leagues really mean anything to anybody ?   I mean really  --  
 
If that’s true   …   then why do they let the guys from Kansas City and Pittsburgh play ???
 
IT’S AN ALL STAR GAME     NOTHING MORE    NOTHING LESS   ….   AND NOBODY CARES       nor should they
 
Rangers manager Ron Washington says in 1 breath winning is important becuz he’d like home field advantage  ….  and in the next breath says he’ll let everybody play   ….    If it really mattered why would you take the best players out ??      
 
And you decide who plays in a game that means sooooooooooooooooooo much by a bunch of geeks who vote online all day and night   …..     not that there’s anything wrong with that  --   well actually there is   …   an orchestrated online vote is stupid   …     we’ve reduced the all star game to “dancing with the stars” and “American idol”
 
I don’t vote on those shows either   …     I am really old
