This Tuesday, the best of the National League takes on the best of the American League in the 85th MLB All-Star Game. You might be wondering whether or not you feel like watching it. Here are five reasons why you should.
You like sports, right? Of course you do! You found your way onto RantSports.com after all. Besides, this is the type of sporting event that carries a social obligation to care. How will you feel the next day at work when everyone is talking about it and you're left out of the conversation and ostracized by your peers?
Love him or hate him, he is one of the best to ever play the game. Maybe he hurt you and your team in the past, but this night will be a night to honor the Captain. If you thought Mo's send off at Citi Field last year was raucous, just wait until Jeter comes out on the field.
Where else and when else are you going to see the best players from each league on the same field competing for League supremacy and World Series home-field advantage? You're bound to see a memorable pitcher vs. hitter duel you wouldn't otherwise see.
The game is on Fox, therefore you'll probably see Erin Andrews multiple times during the broadcast. Yes, Erin Andrews. You like Erin Andrews.
Who are you kidding? There really is nothing else to do or watch on a Tuesday night. Yes it's an exhibition game. But seriously there are no other sports to watch that night and the only alternative to staying home to watch it is going out...and ending up in front of a T.V. showing the game.
