Top 10 Baseball Distractions

8. Governor’s Cup Yacht Race (Friday & Saturday St. Mary’s College)

I don’t know who’s racing, but I’ll be picking the Winklevosses. Winklevoss’? Winklevi? I don’t know. Did you know the same guy played both of them in that movie? I would tell you he was the guy from The Lone Ranger, but I know you didn’t see The Lone Ranger.

Also technically, it means this line wasn’t true.

7. MLS: MLS All-Star Game (Wednesday 9pm from Kansas City live on ESPN2); Montreal Impact @ DC United (Saturday 7:30pm from RFK Stadium live on Comcast SportsNet)

I could watch Jurgen Klinsmann disappear during the Gold Cup final every day this week.

6. Auto Racing: NASCAR 400 (Sunday 1pm from Long Pond, PA live on ESPN); IndyCar Honday Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio (Sunday 3pm from Lexington, OH live on NBC Sports Network)

Brad Keselowski’s new SportsCenter commercial is one of the greatest ever made.

Brad Keselowski is a NASCAR guy, right?

5. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC 163-Jose Aldo vs. “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung (Saturday 10pm from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil live on Pay-Per-View); Bellator MMA (Wednesday 7pm from Santa Ana, NM live on SpikeTV)

Here’s Ronda Rousey in the new Maxim. That’s all you need to know.

Also from Maxim this month? “Ruthie” from 7th Heaven is 23 now. Wait. Really?
