Is there anything more repulsive than people who excel at what they do gathering together to congratulate themselves?

Likely not, but we tolerate Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game anyway. Probably because we love baseball a little bit too much, and we love the matchups that come out of this game, and we love the idea of the best players in baseball playing against each other.

Sure. We might have to suspend cynicism for a few hours, but there are far worse things to do on a Tuesday night, including watching American’s Got Talent, or talking on the phone with your nana.

So, join us at 8:00 PM EDT tonight for our live blog and chat. We’ll do the usual: gripe about selections, make fun of Red Sox players, and make up words to describe how great Jose Bautista is. ¬†How could anyone refuse?
