The time period right around Major League Baseball's All-Star break is traditionally one of the slowest of the year in sports.
A newspaper once called the day after the All-Star Game "The most boring day in sports."
To that, we offer this option: Thanks to the folks at AstroTurf, you can literally watch the grass grow at Boston College's Alumni Field. AstroTurf is being installed there, and the company has a live camera set up to record all the action.
Better hurry, though. Project completion date is July 13.
