All Star Break Cartoon Funnies

No All Star game can be complete without a litle bit of humor. Below is one of the true Baseball cartoon classics. "Baseball Bugs" with Bugs Bunny and friends.

Update: This carton first came out in 1946. It's incredible that it still resonates today. Did you know that
"among the ads on the fence is one for "Mike Maltese, Ace Detective" featuring a picture of Mike Maltese (the writer of "Baseball Bugs") with a fedora and a pistol?"

The Great LA Dodgers Blue Heaven Sleepover

Ya know, If I had found out about this ahead of time I would have seriously considered going. Furthermore, if I had known that they would call this event the "Blue Heaven Sleepover" I would have definitely been a participant. Oh Well. There's always next year.

Tom Hoffarth of Farther Off the Wall writes about the experience. He also was kind enough to post some pictures. Go and check it out.
5:35 a.m.: Daybreak. There's something you'll never get to see, no matter how many extra innings a game might go: The sun coming up over the right field pavilion. The chirping from the birds and cackling from the crows picking over the garbage still left from the previous day's game echo loudly through the empty seats and serve as an interesting wake-up call.
Wow. I think I will be going the next time they do this.
