77th All Star Game

Posted in Sports at 6:26 pm by Nova Newcomer

I just found out that this year’s All Star Game is number 77. All the more reason to celebrate tonight’s festivities. 77 is a good number. My dad always says it’s because the TrailBlazers won the championship that year, I was born and Elvis died. In that order. And I think he’s fairly serious about the Elvis part, but maybe that’s just his macabre sense of humor. Damn it! I love any chance to use a word like macabre. So, here’s to 77. In honor of the 77th All Star Game, here are my top 7 reasons to watch this year’s All Star Game:

  1. The star in centerfield.
  2. Ichiro Suzuki was the leadoff batter.
  3. Ozzie Guillen managing the AL…so complex, but likeable at the same time.
  4. It’s sweet that these guys can put rivalries aside mid-season to play ball!
  5. Making fun of that awful Chevy commercial they keep playing…this ain’t the Super Bowl, folks. 😦
  6. Mariner Housewife live blog.
  7. It’s freaking baseball, dudes!
