Tuesday, July 14, 2009: All-Star Game

Tuesday, July 14, 2009: All-Star Game

We're not typically very sporty around here, except for my insane enthusiasm about the Olympics, but the All-Star Game is actually sort of fun, in an it-doesn't-really-matter kind of way. It's like the Pro Bowl for football; it's just an excuse to get all of the really talented stars from each team to play together in one big game. It's always seemed strange to me that this happens in the middle of the baseball season, but this year in particular I'm grateful for this all-star break, because it means that as a Mets fan, I don't have to watch my team lose for the next few days.

In addition to not having to hear my husband grumble a lot about the Mets, there's the added bonus that I get to see David Wright play for the National Team, and Derek Jeter play for the American team. Yes, I watch this sport for all the typical girly reasons... and because I love drinking beer and eating hot dogs. Also on tap for the American League's team tonight is Evan Longoria. His name causes this TV junkie to giggle nearly every time I see him play, as it makes me imagine Eva Longoria trying to play baseball. You'd think that after a couple of years this novelty would have worn off, but it hasn't. I'm not going to predict who wins, because frankly, I don't really care all that much, since they only play for bragging rights, and I really don't care about that.

Anyway, if you want non-sporty TV, browse our Week In Preview for some other options.
