The MLB All-Star game is upon us, and frankly, most of us don't care.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that just about every player in baseball, besides Hideki Matsui and Adam Dunn, has qualified for the game, or maybe it has something to do with Bud Selig's lame idea to give home field advantage for the World Series to the winning league.

I'm not exactly sure what the problem is; all I know for sure is that I have zero interest in the game, and I'm not alone in this opinion.

In fact, the last time I actually cared about the Major League Baseball All-Star game was when drug-fiends Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire were going mano y mano in the home run derby.

As a child, I'd be excited for weeks leading up to the MLB All-Star game. I had all the players stats memorized, and I kept score during the game (yes, I was a dork).

Since those years, I've lost interest, as have many Americans.

However, it's not just the baseball all-star game that has been in a downward spiral. It's all of them (except hockey—hockey's All-Star game is great).

Being the HUGE sports fan I am, I've decided to take it upon myself to save our beloved All-Star games.

What follows is a list of ideas of how to make Americans care again.
