Top 10 Baseball Distractions

October 30, 2012 | Glenn Clark

4. Soccer: MISL Chicago Soul @ Baltimore Blast (Saturday 7:35pm 1st Mariner Arena); MLS Playoffs: DC United vs. New York Red Bulls (Saturday 8pm from Harrison, NJ live on NBC Sports Network); College Soccer: Maryland @ Wake Forest (Thursday 7pm from Winston-Salem, NC live on ESPN3)

I went Sunday to watch the Liverpool/Everton contest with some friends. I found myself shouting “f*cking tossers!” at the screens as the late winner for The Reds was ruled offsides despite clearly being good.  I’ve lived my entire life wanting to shout “f*cking tossers!” so it felt pretty good.

Also, I’ve decided I want a football scarf, so can someone get on that already?

Let’s see how the Minnesota high school soccer playoffs are going…

3. Horse Racing: Breeders’ Cup (Friday 4pm live on NBC Sports Network Saturday 3:30pm live on NBC Sports Network Saturday 8pm live on NBC. All racing from Arcadia, CA)

Game On Dude gets another try in the Classic Saturday night, although sadly his jockey Chantal Sutherland will no longer be aboard.

Of course, I don’t think we could have gotten so lucky as to have her wear her best silks for the race even if she had been riding…

2. College Football: Georgia Tech @ Maryland (Saturday 12:30pm from Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium live on ACC Network-WJZ 13 locally); Florida Atlantic @ Navy (Saturday 3:30pm from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium live on CBS Sports Network); Towson @ Delaware (Saturday 12pm from Newark, DE live on NBC Sports Network/; Bethune-Cookman @ Morgan State (Saturday 1pm Hughes Stadium); Oregon @ USC (Saturday 7pm from Los Angeles live on FOX), Alabama @ LSU (Saturday 8pm from Baton Rouge, LA live on CBS)

We can all pretend like LSU is on Alabama’s level, but we all really know the truth. Just ask Les Miles…

Meanwhile, checking in on The Honey Badger…

1. NFL: Baltimore Ravens @ Cleveland Browns (Sunday 1pm from Cleveland live on CBS)

How did Ray Rice spend his Bye Week?

He’ll be ready.

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
