Thank you Michael Young. A nation of sleepy, blurred eyed baseball fans thanks you for putting us out of our misery ending the longest All-Star game in MLB history last night/this morning. You did us a favor because the other options (continuation or a tie) were too sad to discuss. Even if Buck and McCarver kept bringing them up. I have to be honest with y’all, I didn’t tune into the game until the 7th inning and saw J.D. Drew’s homerun. Up until that time I was blissfully pissed off at the world for screwing me over once again. So thank you baseball for taking my mind off of that. And killing my growing fondness for your game.
Anyway, I’m too tired (and still angry) to do anything substantial. So let’s take a look back at the All-Star game that was. Hey, did you guys know that it was the last All-Star game ever in Yankee Stadium? Huh, did ya?
The sac fly from Young…
…and Justin Morneau‘s winning run.
And then there were celebrations.
And more celebrations.
I’m told J.D. Drew won the MVP award. Good for him I suppose.
Because of Dioner Navarro‘s slow ass we had to endure more innings. Run faster next time!
As a new Tigers fan it’s my obligation to include a picture of the team’s sole representative, Carlos Guillen.
I hear the pregame celebrations were nice.
I’m a sucker for night time stadium shots.
And we end with Grady Sizemore. If you even have to ask why you probably shouldn’t be reading this blog.
