I almost forgot to mention the All-Star game.
Neither of the two Missouri players saw the field. Awesome.
The Willie Mays thing at the beginning was really nice. Interesting to watch a guy who is as deservedly reviled as Barry Bonds deal with someone he has a true fondness for. Just a reminder that everyone has a decent side.
Watching the game you felt like the American League was clearly the better team. The fact that the National League had such a good chance to take it reminds one of small things that decide baseball games. Actually it reminds me why basketball is really the only one of the major three sports where the best team usually has better than 80% odds of winning thier respective title. Too many weird things can happen in one football game or a seven game baseball series.
