Top 10 Baseball Distractions

September 03, 2012 | Glenn Clark

4. Basketball: Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony (Friday 7:30pm from Springfield, MA live on NBA TV); WNBA: Connecticut Sun @ Washington Mystics (Tuesday 7pm from Verizon Center live on, Los Angeles Sparks @ Washington Mystics (Friday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Washington Mystics @ Atlanta Dream (Sunday 3pm from Atlanta live on

I won’t be watching the induction ceremony this year. It’s my silent form of protest that a certain former basketball coach has yet to see enshrinement…

No that picture is NOT framed above my bed. Why? Do you know a guy?

3. College Football: Maryland @ Temple (Saturday 12pm from Philadelphia live on ESPNU); Georgia @ Missouri (Saturday 7:45pm from Columbia, MO live on ESPN2)

I know Maryland barely squeaked by with a 7-6 win over William & Mary Saturday. If I talk about Maryland, no one will read any further.

So instead…sit back and enjoy the most awkward pre-game pep talk in the history of football…

I guess it could have been worse. He could have said it to a chair?

2. Tennis: ATP Tour WTA Tour U.S. Open (Tuesday 11am & 7pm live on ESPN2 11am live on Tennis Channel Wednesday & Thursday 11am live on Tennis Channel 12pm live on ESPN2 Friday 12:30pm live on CBS Saturday 12pm & 8pm live on CBS Sunday 12:30pm live on ESPN2 4pm live on CBS. All tennis from New York)

And for the final time?

I’ll miss you, A-Rod. Go get ’em.

1. NFL: Cincinnati Bengals @ Baltimore Ravens (Monday 7pm from M&T Bank Stadium live on ESPN/WJZ 13)

Anyone remember how it ended the last the Bengals came to Charm City?

(Oh right. We kinda hung on. I’ll take it again!)

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
