All-Star Baseball Time in St. Louis



I was interested in going until I saw the ticket prices. Cheap seats and standing room tickets were starting around $400-$500 when I looked. I quickly came to my senses and realized how nice it would be to watch from home.

Home Run Derby tonight....and the game tomorrow.

Our friendly right wing radio people (Station KFTK 97.1 FM) have been suggesting to their listeners (in a roundabout way) that they should boo Obama when he shows up to throw out the first pitch tomorrow night. I doubt if they'll get enough people to take part....but it wouldn't surprise me if the boos are noticeable. Although the City is Obama Country... the people who can actually afford to attend baseball games tend to be a little more affluent, more Conservative and are from the suburbs, and in this case from different parts of the Country.

We shall see.

The President's opening pitch sucked. Outside of that, I really didn't follow the game. Baseball's not my thing until the playoffs start.
