Tuesday Bird Droppings

July 9, 2012; Kansas City, MO, USA; American League catcher Matt Wieters (32) of the Baltimore Orioles hits during practice for the 2012 All Star Game at Kauffman Stadium.

Are you ready for the All-Star game, people? I know I am! Or whatever.

Last night I had the pleasure of cheering on my esteemed colleague Eat More Esskay at the semi-finals of the WNST Next Sports Media Superstar contest, and while I may be a little biased, he rocked it. And that was even with some rotten luck keeping him from getting any Orioles questions in his interview. When he makes to to the finals we'll have to have a Camden Chat field trip to Hooters for cheering purposes.
