All-Star Game MVB

12 Jul

This just in…. Most Valuable Beards of the 2011 All-Star Game:

Prince Fielder’s Beard hit a 3-run dinger that set the National League atop the charts in the bottom of the 4th inning. The NL maintained the lead for the rest of the game and emerged victorious over the American League Team, which was greatly lacking in beards.

Brian Wilson’s Beard preserved the NL’s lead to record the save. Hardcore fans of Fear the Beard anxiously awaited his arrival to the mound, when he inherited 2 AL runners after one out in the 9th. NL defense did not allow any further hits after The Beard arrived.

 

 

UPDATE: American League Honorable MVB

Jose Bautista’s Beard may have been shorter than the aforementioned behemoth beards, but it was by no means lacking in #swagg. Beardtista made an incredible sliding grab in the RF corner that was originally just called foul by the All-Star Game announcers in the 2nd inning. This beard by all means brought the Hustle & Heart to the American League Team.

The National League won the All-Star Game 5-1 at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, and will have a home-field advantage for the 2011 World Series.

    Haha too funny. I don’t think that was the best all-star game in the world obviously but I still enjoyed it. It’s just something about having all the best players (even though some skipped out) playing together and against each other on one field. It’s fun to see Roy Halladay rock through a lineup that features 9 of the best hitters in the American League or Brian Wilson come close it out. Adrian Gonzalez and Prince Fielder mashing. You know it’s going to be someone big cuz it’s the all-star game. The National League now has home field advantage, which I don’t quite understand the point of. I wonder how the ratings were for this all-star game because they have been faltering lately. Either way, another all-star game is in the books and it’s back to the real world. Half a season to go! Also, you think you could take a look at my blog cuz I’d love to hear what you have to say http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2011/07/12/creating-meaning-out-of-chaos/

      I love watching the All-Star game myself, Chris. I enjoy the chance to cheer for my favorite All-Stars from any team, without compromising my own team loyalty. I get an added kick out of knowing that all baseball fans are focusing on one event for the night!
