I understand your attraction though to the God of the OT.
    Both absurd and ignorant.

    By the way this is the most the All-Star game has ever been talked about so MLB is probably super happy that they will actually get some ratings as a result this year....
    That's how it used to be but look at the NFL. they got political lost business and then doubled down losing more business. Think about it taking a side in hotly contested political issues will always lose you more business than you can gain. The one saving grace for them is that cons don't cancel as well as ultra libs..... yet.

    Although you do make a point on the attention the game is getting here in April. we will have to see if that transulates to more or less people watching in July.
