I only watched a few seconds of last night's HR derby, but I have to say I don't really see why so many people seem to like it. It's like sitting next to Chris Berman while watching batting practice. I'm not a huge baseball fan anyway, but I think I'd rather see some kind of skills competition that involved who could run the bases the fastest or throw the ball the farthest or something.

Yeah, and sitting next to Chris Berman for anything is actually pretty painful. I watched Abreu hit and then decided to do some housework. It really is pretty boring, but people seem to love it for whatever reason. I think they should take Scott Podsednik, Carl Crawford, and a few more fast guys and have a game of pickle. Now that I would watch.

I had the pleasure of going to Turner Field and seeing the 2000 Home Run Derby where Sammy Sosa tore the covers off of about 20 baseballs, and I have to say that it is MUCH more fun to watch in person than on TV. It's actually pretty lame on TV. I knew that there was something wrong when I got home from class at 10:45 and it was still on. After an 8:00 start time? Sheesh, they may as well play a freaking game.
