In SI's latest Pop Culture Grid, which will be posted on Extra Mustard tomorrow, one of the questions posed to the athletes is, "I wish I could transform into..."

These Stars Don't Shine Bright

Confession: I have zero use for All-Star games. They're meaningless, they don't count, they're exhibitions. But there are two good things about All-Star games. One, is watching fans and media get all hot and bothered because someone got snubbed from A FAKE TEAM. The other is looking back at some of the worst players to ever get an All-Star nod.

E-Mail Of The Day

Brad Davis, of New York, says, "It's 4:50 on Saturday, July Fourth. I'm watching the Yanks game right now before I fly to Spain for two weeks, but that's not important. Ms. Minka Kelly, a Hot Clicks fave, is sitting with Dr. and Mrs. Jeter in a suite at today's Yanks-Jays game. The YES Network has just put them on screen in five different shots during The Captain's at-bat during the bottom of the 11th. Nothing says Independence Day like two of America's Favorites: Baseball and Minka." Jeff, I couldn't agree more.
