Yup, it's that time of year again, folks. On Sunday morning, I'll be gassing up Stew Force One and making the short flight down to St. Louis, home of awful cracker-crust pizza, my favorite Wilco song and Chingy, for 2009 MLB All-Star Festivities.
Just like last year, I'll be bringing you the best of the colorful "scene," from the Home Run Derby to Presidential First Pitches to the Midsummer Classic itself. Any and all Sheryl Crow, Albert Pujols(notes) and Will Leitch sightings will be found here or on my Twitter feed.
Oh, and we're getting interactive this year, Stewies! On Monday, they'll be holding the traditional media day, when the nation's writers act annoyed and put out when their useless questions are preempted by my equally useless inquiries. This year, I'd like to give all of you a shot to submit questions to the players in attendance for a later posting.
So pick an All-Star, create a question and email it to me for possible relay. Include your name and hometown and remember that your chances increase with both creativity and the player it's aimed to. (The lesser the star the better, as it's hard to cut through the three-deep crowd that's likely to be surrounding guys like Pujols and Jeter.)
At any rate, cue the Nelly beats, dear Stewies.
We're all about to become honorary St. Lunatics for a few days.
