The Last All-Star Game in Yankee Stadium

I'm watching the pre-game show and I am ashamed to say I did not know that Willie Mays was still ALIVE, much less able to appear as the crown jewel of Center Fielders for the Hall of Famers that were there (also appearing were Hank Aaron and Yogi Berra, amongst many others). I can't believe that they're actually going to tear down The House That Ruth Built. I mean, I'm not a Yankees fan, but this is Baseball History. (My Mom's a big Yankees fan, though - but then, she's from New Jersey, I guess I can forgive her.) It was sort of sad that every All-Star player from the Red Sox got booed as he stepped on the field. There are two Diamondback pitchers on the All-Star team, but they're not starting - and the National League hasn't won the All-Star game since, I think they said '96.

I should be working on my Writer's Link submissions (writer's group who are critiquing "Ring of Fire" for me), but I'm catching up on LJ and reading email instead while watching the pre-game show.

I tried to steal a dragon egg (see melvh's journal), but the cave was empty. *is sad*

I can't believe they're already pushing the new season. It's like TV knows there won't be anything to watch until September.

Will Budweiser still be called "The Great American Lager" once the merger has gone through? (I can just feel Dad spinning in his grave at the thought of Budweiser being owned by a German company.)

Ah, well. Back to work! I have writing to critique.
