Welcome to the slowest sports news day of the year; residing in the midst of the slowest sports news week of the year.
We don’t have any sports this week, just the MLB All-Star Game. Seriously, in 2024, people will ask you why MLB is on par with MLS, horse racing and boxing. Remind them of the 2014 MLB All-Star Game- when the greatest hitter in a half-century, who died just one month before, was not even mentioned, not even once, during the entire telecast.
Tony Gwynn played in 15 All-Star games, yet both Major League Baseball and Fox Sports didn’t even deem him worthy of being mentioned in the 2014 telecast; despite passing away 29 days before it was played.
That said, let’s move on to something less disgraceful and dark.Follow paulmbanks
