All-Star Lame

I can't get over all the hoopla over a meaningless July baseball game up here in New York.

"The last All-Star game ever to be played at Yankee Stadium," is what we've been hearing all about for at least a week now. Who cares?

In its 85-year-history, tonight's Midsummer Classic is only the fourth one to be played at what surely is one of the more famous sporting facilities around the world. But baseball's all-star game is weak, and really all all-star exhibitions are stupid.

Now if the Yankees make it to the World Series and they're playing a Game 7 in the Bronx come October, by all means, give the House That Ruth Built a proper sendoff.

But for now, enough with the hyperbole, perhaps best -- or worst -- expressed by none other than Gay-Rod himself, he of the perfect hair and orange face: "It's truly magical." Magical is what PR people and losers with no originality say when they want to overstate something's worth.

All of the All Star games just suck. Except the WNBA.

My friendship with you is magical.

More importantly, the all star parade is messing up my lunch. I can't cross 6th avenue to get to the Italian deli I wanted to hit today. Just another reason why I hate baseball.
