The All Star Game

A friend invited me to the MLB all star game - as these events go it was a pretty good evening.  We happened to be sitting in an area where most of the fans favored the American league so when McCann had his hit there was general grumpiness. (the photo is from the Globe and Mail) I am a big fan of the senior circuit - so the three runs were just fine with me.   The crowd was also generally anti-Yankee (there were some scattered boos when Steinbrenner's death was announced) and anti-Dodger.

I sat next to a thirteen year old from Tampa who knew a lot about baseball - he was downcast because of the AL losing - but I said he had the chance to experience history.  No NL team had ever won during his entire lifetime.
