Midsummer Night’s Baseball

MoThe baseball joy in July continues! Last night, the American League won the Midsummer Classic, the MLB All-Star Game. In fact, it really wasn’t even a close game.

Fortunately, WordPress allows you to put a published post back into draft status (and I set it to Private just to be sure).

So, oops, my bad! Cat got out of the bag early, but kitty is kenneled again until later!
