6 p.m. — It’s 7-13, so is that a lucky day or an unlucky one? Hard to say, right?
I’m not going to be on Twitter tonight because I follow a lot of baseball-related pages and I don’t want the All-Star game spoiled. I realize I’m in the minority, but I absolutely love the MLB All-Star game. Love everything about it. My favorite one ever was the one in Pittsburgh in 1994 (I think), when Tony Gwynn came around to score on a double by Moises Alou in extra innings.
That was my first year as a Cleveland Indians fan, but I’ve always preferred the National League over the American League. Yes, if Fausto Carmona enters tonight’s game, I want him to strike out everybody he faces. I’ve just always liked the National League brand of baseball. It’s not the lack of a DH or anything like that, I just think the NL teams are more interesting. The Orioles? The A’s? Come on, now. Plus, I spend so much time rooting against the other AL teams that it doesn’t make sense for me to put that aside, even for a night.
But my point was that since I won’t be on Twitter tonight, all the updates from the Wingnuts’ game tonight against Lincoln can and will be found here. The Wingnuts enter on a six-game winning streak and face Lincoln, which is also hot coming into this series. Yes, the Saltdogs are 2-5 and just lost 3 of 4 to Sioux Falls, but beating Sioux Falls even once qualifies as a hot streak since the Pheasants have been tearing through the league for most of the season.
