MIN has self serve beer
 
 
Think how hard that thing is to use after you've had five or six. The average person can't even use the self checkout at the grocery store, but now drunk people are going to be able to figure out a self-serve beer machine?

deep inside Guido territory
Farrell told ESPN Radio's Jon Sciambi in a pregame meeting that Jeter will likely get two at-bats and then take the field in the top of the fourth where he'll be replaced by Alexei Ramirez of the Chicago White Sox. That will presumably give the Target Field crowd — and both All-Star sides — a chance to give the New York Yankees shortstop a made-for-TV moment as he disappears into the dugout.

"It does not take any talent to play hard." I can't stand the ballwashing either, but that's a great quote. And, it applies to every part of life.

A new restaurant by me is opening this week and they have self serve machines as well. I'll have to report back my observations this weekend.

Fake edit: I will not be reporting back if I am one of those people who can't figure it out.

Just tuning in now.  What's the point of this song?  Is it a tribute to someone/something?

Was there ever a time they just announced the players and played the game?

Or at least have someone sing "Centerfield" or something.

This woman has an absolutely atrocious and annoying voice. She doesn't sing. She shouts.
 
And I'm sick of everyone having to put their own extra-special self-aggrandizing spin on the national anthem.
 
Just sing the fucking song in a straightforward fashion, assholes.

That was embarrassingly bad.
 
So, the Jeter stuff was beyond what I could have possibly imagined. Did they cover anything else about the game?
It's the ASG. There's nothing "real" to cover.

Stupid bitch took 15 seconds too long because she had to show off her vocal acrobatics, and fucked up the timing with the flyover.
 
Good job, good effort.
