The All Star Game Is Coming Soon

The baseball season is nearing the halfway point and that means the All Star Game.  While it’s not close to being what it once was, I always enjoy the game.  You always know there will be at least one Tiger on the team and this year is the first time in a long time that the Tigers’ manager is going to have a say in who makes the team.  So if a guy like Placido Polanco falls short in the voting, you know it’ll pretty much be a certainty that he’ll make the team as a reserve.

I always wonder how much sports betting there is on the All Star game.  I’m not a gambler, but one of the things I did as a kid was bet my mom on the game.  I’d always take the American League, and back then, they lost more times then not so I’d always be a nickel short come the next morning.  The one game I remember very well was the 1987 All Star Game, that was an exciting thirteen innings.  And they didn’t even run out of pitchers.
