    Hoping for a good game and good game thread, but my enthusiasm is a little low. Hard to explain, but to me, hosting the ASG when the Twins are in another down year is like hosting the rotating MN family Christmas when there's no snow and you and your little brother both have pinkeye.

    Still cool, because, well, Christmas, but still... And while I don't dislike Jeter the way some people do, the Jeterification of this ASG is reaching the point where I might before it's over.

    I rarely watch much of the ASG. I like the intros and the pre-game stuff. The actual game ... usually not so much.

    But yeah, it is a bit of a downer.

    But Miggy picks me up!

    Just a guess, but do you mean the re2pect thing? Two-spect just makes me think of a deceased entertainer...



    Probably just another sign of my advancing case of G.O.M.L. disease, but gratuitous use of hashtag/L33tspeak stuff in everyday life makes me happy that Weird Al is on my side:

    I think that NL pitcher in the second should have started, he's pretty good. Someone should have told Matheny.

    it is too bad you are so cynical.

    I liked the part where he touched the sick bat boy and cured him of leprosy.

    He should have started the better and more dominate pitcher. Just like Ferrell should have used Chris Sale after Felix Hernandez. Jon Lester is good but Sale is better.

    I don't know. I'm fine with the Jeter sentimentalism. I loved the commercial and the ovations.
