Top 10 Baseball Distractions

8. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC Fight Night-Carlos Condit vs. Martin Kampmann (Wednesday 8pm from Indianapolis live on Fox Sports 1)

Arthur Jones (it’s kinda MMA-related because his brother is a UFC champ!) got a new tattoo recently. Courtesy of the team, It’s all shiny-like.

7. College Soccer: Maryland @ Cal (Sunday 5:30pm from Berkley, CA live on Pac-12 Network); Springhill Suites Arundel Mills BWI Kickoff Classic: Seattle @ UMBC (Friday 7pm Retriever Soccer Park), UNLV @ UMBC (Sunday 1pm Retriever Soccer Park); MLS: DC United @ New York Red Bulls (Saturday 8pm from Harrison, NJ live on NBC Sports Network)

My boys from Chelsea handed Manchester United a SERIOUS 0-0 asskicking Monday. Take that, stupid Man U fans!

Now here’s Manchester City’s John Guidetti dancing in his underpants because I don’t really have any interest in doing any more research today.

6. Golf: PGA Tour FedEx Cup Playoffs Deutsche Bank Championship (Friday & Saturday 3pm live on Golf Channel Sunday 1pm live on Golf Channel 3pm live on NBC Monday 11:30am live on Golf Channel 2pm live on NBC. All golf from Norton, MA); Champions Tour Shaw Charity Classic (Friday 8:30pm Saturday 8:30pm Sunday 5pm from Calgary on Golf Channel); LPGA Safeway Classic (Thursday-Saturday 6:30pm Sunday 7pm from Portland live on Golf Channel)

In Web Junk today I played some audio of Nick Faldo making fun of Rickie Fowler and Jonas Blixt at The Barclays. It was most certainly deserved.

5. High School Football: St. Paul’s @ Loyola (Friday 4:30pm), Trinity Catholic @ Calvert Hall (Saturday 7:30pm); Eastern Tech @ Perry Hall scrimmage (Friday 6pm)

Allow me to be a sap for just a minute. A year ago, the first day of school was one of the worst in Perry Hall High School history. This year, shooting victim Daniel Borowy looked like a million dollars. Thanks to his mother for sharing this picture.
