San Diego – With so many celebrity/athlete interviews during All-Star weekend (we went from the concerts to Fan Fest to the game) here are a few of our favorite conversations.
7-time All-Star Tim Raines tells The Burns Report that he feels San Diego put on the best week’s festivities he can recall.
“It’s been a long time since San Diego has had an All-Star game here and to see what they have put together thus far it’s been great,” said Raines. “I’ve been to a lot of All-Star games and this ranks among the top.”
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees took part in the Celebrity All-Star, and during batting practice talked about the legendary athlete he was most excited to meet.
“Ozzie Smith was my first autograph when I was a kid… so in the locker room I had him sign my bat. So I was like, ‘you’re my first baseball autograph and now my last baseball autograph.”
Tony Gwynn, Jr. sat down with The Burns Report to discuss his father’s influence on how he soaked in the festivities and how the Gwynn family was enjoying the game.
Meanwhile, USA Soccer legend Landon Donovan breaks the news that he is San Diego’s newest homeowner.
