All-Star Day

Today was the All-Star Game, and I watched the National League take it on the chin early on, and eventually go down in defeat. The Cards had the infield mostly covered, and made a good showing, but it was not enough. Who’da thunk Roger Clemens would look so bad?!

The thing that was really impressive to me was the appearance of Muhammed Ali to assist in the throwing out of the first pitch. This was amazing. It was fun to see that, despite his illness, he was able to still play and have fun with the major league players on the field with him. I’m not a big boxing fan, but I truly believe that his bravery in facing his illness exceeds any he ever exhibited in the ring.
