There has been no baseball yesterday or today, marking the actual “break” part of the all-star break. This short break is special for a number of reason; it is a chance for all major leaguers to kick back and enjoy a couple days off to recharge and prepare for the second half of the season, and today and yesterday are the only two days during the year where there are no regular season games in any of the big four sports (baseball, basketball, football & hockey) being played.

It’s a beautiful thing really because despite all the headlines on various media outlets, nothing his happening in baseball, only NBA rookies are playing the occasional summer league game, football is trying to lure fans with stories about training camps but really nothing is going on, and hockey is in hibernation until the winter. So I hope you have enjoyed these past two days because the sports world gets back to business tomorrow.
