2009 Card-vent Calendar: December 23

December 23, 2009:
1990 Score #566 Bo Jackson All-Star MVP

The 1989 All-Star Game in Anaheim, California, was one of the first I can remember watching. I was in Fargo, North Dakota on a family vacation where we were staying a few nights with friends of the parents. The days were spent at a local water slide park that had exactly one water slide, and one of the nights was spent watching Bo Jackson hammer a ball thrown by Rick Reuschel into the centerfield seats. I wish I had gotten to see more of Bo Jackson playing baseball, or been old enough to truly appreciate his skill.

I remember everyone being upset because Brewers representative Dave Parker did not play.
