Top 10 Baseball Distractions

4. Soccer: FIFA 14 available for XBox360/PlayStation3 (Tuesday); MLS: DC United @ Toronto FC (Saturday 1pm from Toronto live on Monumental Network); College Soccer: Old Dominion @ Maryland (Tuesday 7pm Ludwig Field), Pitt @ Maryland (Friday 7:30pm Ludwig Field); George Mason @ UMBC (Wednesday 7pm Retriever Soccer Park), George Washington @ UMBC (Saturday 7pm Retriever Soccer Park)

You know what I’m most looking forward to in FIFA 14? The setting where the crowd comes onto the pitch and attacks everyone with plastic chairs. No. Really.

3. Auto Racing: NASCAR AAA 400 (Sunday 2pm from Dover live on ESPN); “Rush” out in theaters (Friday)

I’m stoked for “Rush” because it’s the one where they put Thor in a race car. Who DOESN’T think that’s a good idea? I know the ladies are with me. Or they would be if they knew this column existed. Can someone let them know?

Also, Olivia Wilde.

2. College Football: Navy @ Western Kentucky (Saturday 2pm from Bowling Green, KY live on ESPNews); Towson @ Stony Brook (Saturday 6pm from Stony Brook, NY live on Towson Sports Network); Norfolk State @ Morgan State (Saturday 1pm Hughes Stadium); Muhlenberg @ Johns Hopkins (Saturday 2pm Homewood Field); LSU @ Georgia (Saturday 3:30pm from Athens, GA live on CBS), Oklahoma @ Notre Dame (Saturday 3:30pm from South Bend, IN live on NBC), Ole Miss @ Alabama (Saturday 6:30pm from Tuscaloosa, AL live on ESPN), Wisconsin @ Ohio State (Saturday 8pm from Columbus live on ABC)

For the record, Western Kentucky is not the team that punts the ball for complete passes and first downs. That’s Eastern Kentucky. And yes, I’m being completely serious.

1. NFL: Baltimore Ravens @ Buffalo Bills (Sunday 1pm from M&T Bank Stadium live on CBS); “Tuesday Night Live” with Brandon Stokley (Tuesday 7:30pm from Adams Jeep Aberdeen airing Wednesday 2pm on AM1570 WNST.net), “The Bryant McKinnie Show poured by Pinnacle Vodka” with special guest Kyle Juszczyk (Wednesday 7:30pm from Buffalo Wild Wings Bel Air airing Thursday 2pm on AM1570 WNST.net)

And a reminder that elsewhere…

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
