Similar to what had transpired the night of the 2008 All-Star Game, I intended to watch most, if not all, of the 2010 event, but ended up doing something else. I did flip back and forth between the channels, but I spent the majority of prime-time last night on NCIS: Los Angeles and public television. It was the middle or bottom of the fifth inning when I changed the channel to Fox; neither team had scored yet. When I turned back during the sixth inning, the American League had put one run on the board. I didn’t see too many exciting plays (except for Kuo Hong-Chih throw the ball over the head of the first baseman). When I was about to go upstairs to bed, the National League had just put three players to home. Handbags, I missed it. Get game summary, play-by-play, and stats here.

My desire to watch televised baseball has waned significantly in the last few years. The small amount of the All-Star Game that I did catch–no pun intended–has piqued my curiosity again. Is it the way the basemen shift weight from one hip to the other? Or, that there are enough close-ups and still moments in the game that I can look into the eyes of the one at bat? Think, think, think.
