Top 10 Baseball Distractions

November 08, 2011 | Glenn Clark

4. Soccer: Team USA @ France (Friday 3pm from Paris live on ESPN2/; MISL: Syracuse Silver Knights @ Baltimore Blast (Saturday 7:35pm 1st Mariner Arena); College Soccer: ACC Tournament quarterfinal-Boston College @ Maryland (Tuesday 7pm Ludwig Field), NCAA Tournament Selection Show (Monday 4:30pm; High School Soccer: MPSSAA 4A North Final-Perry Hall @ Westminster (Tuesday 6:30pm)

I’m hoping Jurgen Klinsmann’s crew does “The Bernie” after every goal they score in Paris…which I’m hoping is about 7.

Also, based on the fact that they modeled their celebration after T-Sizzle, do all of the Perry Hall soccer players get immediate scholarship offers from Ball So Hard University? It’s an important question, people.

And I’m assuming the Terps will kick the Eagles’ asses. I’m also assuming I’ll still enjoy this picture…

3. College Football: Maryland @ Notre Dame (Saturday 7:30pm from FedEx Field live on NBC); Navy @ Southern Methodist (Saturday 3:30pm from Dallas live on Fox Sports Net nationally/Comcast SportsNet PLUS in Charm City); New Hampshire @ Towson (Saturday 3:30pm from Unitas Stadium live on AM1570; Norfolk State @ Morgan State (Saturday 1pm Hughes Stadium); Johns Hopkins @ McDaniel (Saturday 12pm Bair Stadium); Oregon @ Stanford (Saturday 8pm from Palo Alto, CA live on ABC)

A reminder that we still have seats left on the Coors Light “The Irish Are Coming” bus trip to Saturday’s game in Landover. We’ll be showing “Rudy” on the bus. We’re not rooting for the Fighting Irish, but we’re aware of what’s ahead of us.

If you’re on the bus and you don’t cry, I’ll buy you a beer at the stadium.

2. NFL: Baltimore Ravens @ Seattle Seahawks (Sunday 4:05pm from Seattle live on CBS)

I hope the showdown between the Ravens and the Hawks makes some folks in the Emerald City conjure up memories of Anthony Wright…

1. College Basketball: UNC-Wilmington @ Maryland (Sunday 8pm Comcast Center); EA Sports Maui Invitational: Towson @ Kansas (Friday 8pm from Lawrence, KA live on, Towson @ Michigan (Monday 8:30pm from Ann Arbor, MI live on; Penn @ UMBC (Friday 7:30pm from RAC Arena live on Live Well Network), UMBC @ St. John’s (Sunday 2pm from New York live on; Loyola @ Wake Forest (Friday 7pm from Winston-Salem, NC live on, Coppin State @ Loyola (Monday 7:30pm Reitz Arena); Cheyney @ Coppin State (Friday 7:30pm Coppin State Physical Education Complex); Murray State @ Morgan State (Monday 7pm Hill Field House)

The Terrapins? Against UNC Wilmington? Cue Drew Nicolas…

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
