So the NL won for once...
It was heartbreaking enough that I couldn't find a McCann custom, but my AL boys didn't win the game last night. But still, I have to acknowledge the NL for a great game. They played excellently last night (Except for Kuo, who now needs to be reminded that Adrian Gonzalez is not ten feet tall).
But you know what's interesting? This piece of superstition will either make me look like a genius, or a complete idiot. The last time the NL won the game was 1996. 1996 was also the year that Nomar Garciaparra's first season. (At least his Topps rookie card). And since he retired this year, the Nomarless NL could actually try to win the game again.
Or....maybe consider this...the NL last won the game in 1996, and the BRAAAVES...THE BRAVES eventually got Homefield advantage...to the Yankees (stay with me here). And the YANKEES...won the series. So fearing that the teams would lose when faced with Homefield advantage, the NL decided to not win the next 13 All Star Games.
OR...Maybe the NL All Star team had just stank for 13 seasons, and they finally picked the right formula this year.
Y'now...I'm just saying.
