4. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC on FUEL TV-Mark Munoz vs. Chris Weidman (Wednesday 8pm from San Jose live on FUEL TV); Strikeforce: Luke Rockhold vs. Tim Kennedy (Saturday 10pm from Portland live on Showtime)

Wanna see something cool? Here’s a moment from the Chael Sonnen/Anderson Silva fight and then the moment re-enacted by WWE wrestlers CM Punk and Daniel Bryan…

Okay, maybe “cool” is a stretch. It’s at least semi-cool though, right?

3. Pro Wrestling: WWE Money In The Bank (Sunday 8pm from Phoenix live on Pay-Per-View)

The breakout star of 2012 in Pro Wrestling is unquestionably AJ, who has been a vital part of the CM Punk-Daniel Bryan storyline (and even dragged Kane in for a bit for some unknown reason). Oh and also, she looks like this…

2. Team USA Basketball: Team USA women vs. Brazil (Monday 5:30pm from Verizon Center live on ESPN2), Team USA men vs. Brazil (Monday 8pm from Verizon Center live on ESPN2); Team USA men vs. Dominican Republic (Thursday 9pm from Las Vegas live on ESPN); NBA Summer League: Atlanta Hawks vs. Washington Wizards (Friday 4pm from Las Vegas live on Comcast SportsNet), Houston Rockets vs. Washington Wizards (Saturday 10pm from Las Vegas live on NBATV); WNBA-Connecticut Sun @ Washington Mystics (Tuesday 11:30am from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Washington Mystics @ Connecticut Sun (Wednesday 7pm from Uncasville, CT live on, Washington Mystics @ New York Liberty (Friday 11am from New York live on

I’m a LITTLE bummed that Baltimore’s Rudy Gay isn’t part of the team-but Baltimore is still represented by Carmelo Anthony so…Hakuna Matata?

There should be a separate league for him.

1. College Football: NCAA Football 13 available for XBox360/PlayStation3 (Tuesday)

18 year old Glenn Clark would cancel all plans for the rest of the week, stock up on Cool Ranch Doritos and be ready to do NOTHING but game at all hours. CJ Brown would be a Heisman Trophy winner, but only until Glenn Clark was recruited to College Park to replace him and win ten BCS titles.

The PRIDE uniforms look pretty good in the game, too…

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
