Top 10 Baseball Distractions

October 15, 2012 | Glenn Clark

8. College Lacrosse: “Fall Ball” Drexel Playday: Navy vs. UMBC (Saturday 1pm), Penn vs. UMBC (Saturday 3pm), Drexel vs. Navy (Saturday 5pm) (All games from Philadelphia); Meghan Puls Lacrosse Classic: Stevenson vs. Franklin & Marshall (Sunday 10am Mustang Stadium), Stevenson vs. Virginia Wesleyan (Sunday 12pm Mustang Stadium)

Obviously I don’t have much of anything to say about Fall Ball lacrosse. Not that it isn’t fun, just…who analyzes Fall Ball lacrosse?

So instead, enjoy this lady who called a radio station in Fargo to ask deer to cross the street somewhere else. No…I’m not kidding.

7. High School Football: Gilman @ Calvert Hall (Friday 7pm) Woodlawn @ Perry Hall (Friday 7pm)

Honestly, I wasted all of my good High School material in the 15-7-0 this week. So instead I think you should watch this video of Felix Baumgartner’s crazy jump from space re-enacted by LEGOS because holy eff that’s an awesome idea…

6. College Basketball: University of Maryland open scrimmage (Saturday 1:30pm Comcast Center)

I’ll take the Terps AND the points, thank you.

By the way-I didn’t pay much attention to Maryland Madness or Midnight Madness much of anywhere else; but THIS…from Tom Izzo at Michigan State…THIS was absolutely brilliant. Well freaking done, sir.

I reminder that the “Black Widows” in the clip were Izzo’s wife and daughter. Want to look again?

5. Auto Racing: NASCAR Chase For The Cup Hollywood Casino 400 (Sunday 1pm from Kansas City, KS live on ESPN)

Apparently AJ Allmendinger’s new sponsor is…ummm….nothing?

“Boy Steve, the Smiley Face Impala just ran really well today…”
