Being a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan means that I choose to root for the National League in the All-Star Game. And that means that over the past couple of decades I have come away from the mid-summer classic disappointed (they have won just four times since 1985). Last night, it looked like the NL was finally going to turn the tide, but they didn't. The NL has won 22 times in my 40 years of life. But lately it has been tough going.
