Top 10 Baseball Distractions

November 26, 2012 | Glenn Clark

8. NBA: Portland Trailblazers @ Washington Wizards (Wednesday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Washington Wizards @ New York Knicks (Friday 7:30pm from New York live on Comcast SportsNet/NBA TV)

For the two of you who missed this last week, the ‘Zards experienced what will UNDOUBTEDLY be the single highlight of their entire season (courtesy of Al Horford’s little brother at their game against the Hawks)…

Just…just amazing. And oh yeah, the Wizards still haven’t won a game.

7. Golf: PGA Tour World Challenge (Thursday & Friday 3pm live on Golf Channel Saturday & Sunday 3pm live on NBC. All golf from Thousand Oaks, CA)

Apparently they still play golf during the fall/winter sometimes. I don’t know who “they” are and I don’t think “they” have done it recently, but Yahoo! Sports recently posted this video of a corgi playing around at Olympic Club so I’ve got nothing else better to share here…

6. Women’s College Basketball: Big Ten/ACC Challenge-Maryland @ Nebraska (Wednesday 8pm from Lincoln, NE live on Big Ten Network), Jimmy V Classic: Maryland @ UConn (Monday 7pm from Hartford live on ESPN2)

Maryland visiting UConn Monday night is a big deal, but you know what’s a REALLY big deal???

The fact that this Tweet only had 52k Re-Tweets three hours later proves there are MILLIONS of Twitter users whose accounts have absolutely ZERO purpose.

5. Soccer: NCAA Tournament-Louisville @ Maryland (Saturday 5pm from Ludwig Field live on; Ireland @ Team USA Women (Wednesday 10pm from Portland live on FOX Soccer Channel Saturday 9:30pm from Glendale, AZ live on FOX Soccer Channel); MLS Cup: Houston Dynamo vs. LA Galaxy (Saturday 4:30pm from Carson, CA live on ESPN)

Look…I assure you I’m rooting for our gals in their two matches against Ireland this week-but I recently discovered “Irish Mac & Cheese” for the first time and I’m forced to admit I’m fairly conflicted…
