Watching the HR derby in Colorado

I live in Atlanta and you should see the whining by the republicans. They are trying to blame the democrats for losing the game. I wrote to two of the senate candidates who are running to take out Warnock. I told them that baseball is played by republicans and the owners are republican and they made a decision to move it. I let them know that they buckled like the republican party buckled to Trump.

5. A home run hitting exhibition by some of Major League Baseball's best hitters as an ancillary

event during MLB's All-Star Game festivities. Not a game situation, the guys pitching are trying to give them good chances of hitting it (instead of the usual opposite), and the guys hitting are swinging for the fences on every pitch (not always the case in game situations), all to show off optimal home run hitting prowess for the fans. They make up some arbitrary rules to keep score between the hitters so there can be a "champion."

7. Reminded them

that Jackie broke the color barrier and how great Willie and Hank were and that baseball has become a white sport. I also let them know that the NBA players and owners are democrats. Both candidates were African American.
