Later, he threw an interception to Tyler Mellor, lowered his shoulder and obliterated Mellor on the Roy sideline."I just saw him and he had his head down and he wasn't looking at anybody so I was like, 'Why not knock him on his butt?' so I just sent it," he said.It was oddly reflective of the game itself: Maple Mountain having a good thing happen, then Roy steamrolling the Golden Eagles.

(AP Photo/Nick Wass) WASHINGTON (AP) -- During every previous All-Star Game in Washington, the president was part of the story. That might not be the case this year. Ask former Republican congressman Tom Davis about the prospect of President Donald Trump throwing out the first pitch at Nationals Park on Tuesday night, and the pageantry of the office isn't the first thing that comes to mind.
