Well if you are not a sports fan and don’t live in Cincinnati, then you may not even know what I am talking about πŸ™‚ but for a year the city has been planning for Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game.

Let me say the city was crazy, I did go downtown a couple of days but if you didn’t get down there early to find a parking space, lot or garage it was nuts. Β So to say the least I just drove around and then went back across the river πŸ˜›

But the Home Run Derby was exciting since Todd Frazier of the Cincinnati Reds won it this year!!!
