Back into action: Quick hits

As a sports fan, this period around the All Star game is really brutal. We're still weeks away from the English Premiership and the NFL, the NBA is long since over and there's no baseball either, with the four day sabbatical around the All Star festivities. Pure boring.

Fox's coverage of the All Star game was hilariously bad, one of those things that was so bad, it was actually entertaining. During the home run derby this exchange actually took place between Erin Andrews and a bemused looking David Ortiz;
  • Andrews: 'David, we know you are all about having fun, but, just how much fun are you having?'
  • Ortiz; 'Uh, I am having a lot of fun.'

FOX! Incisive!


Finally, isn't it funny to see some genuine dislike appearing in the Major League ranks, sometimes between opponents, and sometimes between former team mates! Is it just me or is this a nice change to the ridiculous, millionaire playboy 'Buddies' clubs they have in the NBA?
