Give Me a Break, Give Me a Break

Although I enjoy the All-Star game and all of the cursory activities associated with it, the fact remains that there is only one game over the course of three days. Sure, I understand that the players need a break and that we should let the All-Star game shine in its own limelight. But I am still frustrated that I don’t have anything to watch at the ballpark. I find myself resorting to scouring the Internet to find a minor league baseball game to listen to. I even tuned my satellite dish to the Japanese channel in hopes of finding a Japanese league baseball game to watch. Unfortunately, all I found was a 24-hour Sumo marathon. I’m afraid I am now emotionally scarred for life after watching overweight men with towel wedgies bounce each other from a small ring surrounded by cheering fans eating raw fish. To try and remove these mental images from my subconscious, I decided to go out and pick up a couple of DVD movies. Maybe Bull Durham and Field of Dreams can get my mind back on track. On the bright side, there are only 3 days, 4 hours and 49 minutes until the All-star break is over and the Diamondbacks start the second half of the season.
