I really didn't think that FOX's red carpet was all THAT bad during the Super Bowl. Sure there was absolutely no stars walking it (unless you count House, and I do) but how else were they going to fill 15 hours of coverage? Well if you missed the Red Carpet experience the first go around, you'll get a second chance.
Yankee Stadium will get a very special tribute in its final season when the All-Star game is played in the Bronx in July. But the game-day festivities will kick off with a red-carpet parade in Midtown Manhattan broadcast live on Fox 5 before the game on July 15, the FOX network announced.Yay celebrities! One request though FOX.....please get The Moment of Truth involved somehow. You could ask athletes if they took steroids, if Tony LaRussa is a drunk, and even find out if Joe Buck is actually a robot. Just think about it.
FOX Sports and Best Damn Sports Show Period host Chris Rose will anchor the parade.
All-Stars, Hall-of-Famers and celebrities will enter the 2,000 foot red carpet at the corner of 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue and journey up to Central Park. The parade route will be completely closed-off to traffic in honor of this event.
