The All-Star Game is overproduced. How about some more sound effects, FOX? What about a camera in the ball itself? That'll be fun! So what if everyone throws up? Let's mic former President Bush, sitting in the first row, visible on every pitch, but not mentioned until the 4th inning. Or how about showing some computer-generated fireworks every few minutes? Or "Skippy" or "Snappy" or whatever the animation's name was showing us how to throw a slider? What about some graphics about all the players' favorite breakfast cereals? How about airing the game in 3-D? Or HD? Or as an MTV music video? I don't understand. Just show the game. Relax with the special effects.
