After only 106 ML AB's, I think there are players more deserving than him, or Iggy (135AB) for that matter. Puig will have many years to be in the ASG. Same with Iggy.

There isn't any such thing as "must see T.V."
I missed the Bo Jackson HR you spoke about. I missed entire seasons of Dallas, I haven't watched a Superbowl for about 5 years, I didn't see the final episodes of Seinfeld, MASH, Cheers , I wouldn't be caught dead watching nonsense like Jersey Shore, I did however see Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin supposedly walk on the moon.
I guess the closest thing in my life to "must see T.V." was on Sept 11 , 2001, when you simply couldn't turn the T.V. off because of the horror that was unfolding and knowing of it's historical impact.
What is a "joke" is that anyone really buys the whole MLB business that "the All Star game really means something." What it means to me is that advertisers love it when you spend a July evening sitting in front the set so they can feed you endless commercials for Taco Bell, Geico, Pizza Hut, 5 Hour Energy and countless other products you can live easily without.
