The All Star home run contest must be the most over-hyped and biggest waste of air time in history, even with the 20-plus HRs. The real HR kings of baseball (A-Rod, Manny, Junior, etc.) aren't included, so a bunch of no-names (I didn't know that babe from Wisteria Lane also played baseball, I thought basketball was her sport) are brought out. And the constant meaningless babble from the crew led by Boomer (Joe Morgan on Sunday night baseball is bad enough, but on All-Star Monday too?) . Please...!!! And did I mention the probing questions by the on-field reporter, old what's her household name? At least when Suzie (?) interviewed Joe Namath a few years ago he was drunk and had an excuse for a lousy interview, (okay, not so lousy) but these ex-MLB stars....real in-depth stuff that MLB can be proud of. And it went on until 11:30 or some ridiculous hour. ESPN should have cut away for something more important, like the quarter finals of a poker tournament........... The event could be fun, but badly needs fixing (didn't I hear that last year also?) Please ESPN, rise to the challenge!
