Keith Olbermann and I agree about the All-Star Game:
"...A baseball game, at its essence, means nothing. You have to convince spectators that it's important, and you do this by determining, if at all possible, a winner and a loser. But at Tuesday night's 2002 All-Star Game in Milwaukee, baseball's moguls failed to do this simplest, most essential of things, because they ran out of fresh pitchers...

"As recently as 1997, seven healthy players, including six pitchers, didn't get to play. The pitchers were held in reserve specifically for the most delightful of all prospective problems: The game might be so competitive that it would be tied at the end of the regulation nine, and require extra innings. In 1967, when the game lasted 15 innings, Jim 'Catfish' Hunter pitched the final five innings for the American League, and when it finally ended, there were still three pitchers left in the American League bullpen just in case it had gone longer..."

"Look for a lot more of this cyber-terror drivel over the next two months -- or until the Department is created to the administration's satisfaction, or until Enron, Harken Energy and Halliburton cease making headlines."

What's the saying?...

"What's big and red and eats rocks? A big red rock-eater, of course."

Hmmm. Nope -- that wasn't it.

Poul Anderson. "I have yet to see any problem, however complicated, which, when you looked at it in the right way, did not become still more complicated."
