  All-Star Weekend

Everyone is still talking about it. The quintessential baseball event, in the quintessential ball park.

It doesn't get much better than this. Mark my words, long after the umpires walk out and big-name players and deep pockets owners begin their mutual off-season tantrums over money, people will be talking about the cool summer night in Boston when we were reminded that, in the words of Pete Rose, "baseball is fun."

Just my opinion.
