Mark Grace and Justin Timberlake had All-Star Game’s most interesting moment

Jul 13, 2011, 8:08 PM | Updated: 9:20 pm

There were a lot of great moments during this week’s MLB All-Star festivities in Phoenix, but the most interesting one didn’t even involve a player in the game or anything that happened on the field.

The most memorable All-Star moment took place during the bottom of the 4th inning at the pool in right field between Justin Timberlake and Mark Grace (that will be the only time in the history of baseball and the Internet that phrase will ever be written).

Grace was interviewing the former Mouseketeer, turned musician, turned movie star about his new film when things took a, let’s say odd, turn.

Rather than promoting the flick, Timberlake and Grace began talking about what the star’s favorite ballpark food is. Apparently it’s of the liquid variety.

Grace: Now you wanted ballpark food. Peanuts, popcorn, hot dogs, which one’s your favorite?

Timberlake: My favorite? Just beer.

Grace: Really? Beer! It’s kind of the perfect food.

Timberlake: It goes with the hot dog, it goes with nachos, it goes with peanuts. Beer’s perfect. Beer never got mad at me because I didn’t call beer back.
