Yeah, but how about the NFL … it does things right for home field.
Yeah, such as having Seattle, a team tied for the eighth-best record in its conference, playing at home against New Orleans, a team tied for the second-best record, for a first-round playoff game in January 2011.
If this All-Star Game were played in the fashion of the NBA, NHL or NFL all-star confabs, where defense is basically outlawed, attaching a degree of importance to the outcome would be a fiasco.
Fortunately, this is the country’s one major All-Star Game where a very good version of the actual game — best vs. best — can be contested.
And to add a little pizazz to it with the World Series tie-in isn’t folly at all. It borders on brilliance.
Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500.
