As usual, the media assembles to ask all the All Stars about being named to the respective All Star teams, playing in a historic field, Yankee Stadium and all that fine jazz. Kerry Wood came away with the blowout remark that pretty much says: some people shouldn’t be sports journalists.
When asked about playing at Yankee Stadium (all the mythology of it, etc) Wood responded to some wet behind the ears journalist: “I seem to recall that I play in one every day.”
TOUCHEE! And it’s older than Yankee Stadium too. There’s a lot of mythology at Wrigley. Including Babe’s famed “called shot.”
