    I know I harp on this every year, but it needs to be said: All-Star week sucks.* The game, and its attendant fanfare, is pointless, boring, and purposely slotted in a dead period where there's nothing else available to draw my attention.* To each their own, but I generally question the sanity of anyone who 'looks forward' to this non-event.*

    However, that doesn't mean I want the All-Star game 'fixed,' or any of that nonsense being talked about on sports radio.* Middle aged men can wax poetic all they want about Pete Rose destroying Ray Fosse's career and Ted Williams' walk-off home run, but the All-Star Game has always sucked.* They only remember it fondly because the Mid-Summer Classic was one few games televised before the modern era.* Had other baseball been readily available on television, everyone would remember the All-Star Game as the pointless distraction that it has always been.

    I know it'll never happen, but the game needs to be dumped from the schedule. And if that only highlights how unnecessarily long the baseball season is, then why not shorten the season while we're at it?

    Today in the bag, I'm talking budget cut announcement, Spencer at the WUG, and 'Dre's first run as a professional.
