I heard that was crap, didn't get to see it.
I'm comparing Celeb Softball to the All Star Game. The softball game was wicked pissah good!

The All Star Game is obviously not taken as seriously as other games, but it's a lot better than it used to be. I think they have restored a measure of integrity to the game which had been sorely lacking for a while.

Take it back, Phlab. The game looked like a great one.
Originally posted by PhlabibitI didn't get to see the first 6 innings, but from what I saw, it was a good game. One of the best I've seen. I wanted the NL to break the streak, but yet again, they lose by a single run. Bases loaded and a right handed batter up, and he pops out. Why not put Pujols in there? He's a great hitter . He can hit a single from anywhere over the plate it seems. Oh well. 'Maybe next year'.

I was kind of glad that the NL closed that gap a bit due to some poor pitching at the end... I was going to feel disappointed if it ended at 5-2.
Ichiro is my hero... I was sad to hear he's signing a 5 year 100M deal with Seatle... I'd love to see him in Boston's Yenway Park.
