Quick Note on the pre-All-Star Game

New, comments

I couldn't believe the introduction to the game. Jeannie and the other dope started interviewing Ernie Harwell about the great Al Kaline and cut him off in mid-sentence to go to some idiotic production number.

They didn't even have the decency or finesse to make a dignified transition and show Ernie the respect he deserves.

Serentity Now!

Update:

AL manager Terry Francona, who led the Red Sox to their first title since 1918, had an odd turn in the ninth inning: He got to bring in Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees, who ended the game by striking out Morgan Ensberg for his second All-Star save. "I heard Johnny Damon say something like, `Come on Mo,"' Francona said, referring to the Red Sox center fielder. "I looked at him and I said, `I bet I never would have heard you say that.' It was OK. You know what, for one night, it was pretty cool."
