James Blake announced his retirement from tennis Monday. His career may be most remembered for what wasn’t accomplished, but I will NEVER forget the show he and Andre Agassi put on in New York in 2005.

3. NFL: Baltimore Ravens @ St. Louis Rams (Thursday 8pm from St. Louis live on WBAL 11); “Bryant McKinnie Show” kickoff (Friday 7pm Adams Jeep Aberdeen airing Saturday 12pm on AM1570; Madden 25 available on XBox 360/PlayStation 3 (Tuesday); “America’s Game: The Super Bowl Champions” premiere (Tuesday 7pm Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric)

And later Friday night I’ll be at Exscape nightclub giving away the Chris Davis shirt pictured below to ANYONE who comes by to say hello 8:30-10:30pm.

Plus there’s a free taco bar. Just say hello. That’s all.

2. College Football: Florida International @ Maryland (Saturday 12:30pm from Byrd Stadium live on ACC Network-Comcast SportsNet/ESPN3), Towson @ UConn (Thursday 7:30pm from Hartford live on Towson Sports Network/, Morgan State @ Army (Saturday 7pm from West Point, NY live on CBS Sports Network), Georgia @ Clemson (Saturday 8pm from Clemson, SC live on ABC)

I’ll never not be the biggest Terps fan on the face of the planet, but I may also consider rooting for Arkansas this season thanks to Jen Bielema…

1. Auto Racing: Grand Prix of Baltimore (Friday-Sunday Downtown Baltimore American Le Mans Series Saturday 3:45pm airs Sunday 12pm on ABC IndyCar Series Sunday 2pm live on NBC Sports Network); NASCAR Advocare 500 (Sunday 7:30pm from Hampton, GA live on ESPN)

When you look at it this way, it seems REALLY cool.
