Top 10 Baseball Distractions

4. Soccer: Scotland @ Team USA (Saturday 8pm from Jacksonville live on NBC Sports Network), China @ Team USA Women (Sunday 7pm PPL Park Chester, PA); New England Revolution @ DC United (Saturday 7:30pm RFK Stadium)

Wait…Scotland has their own team? Wouldn’t they just play with England on like a United Kingdom team???

Something I just learned about Scotland? Home of the Red Hot Chili Pipers…

Actually kinda awesome. But not awesome enough to give you even a ROUGH chance against the Red, White and Blue.

3. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC 146-Junior dos Santos vs. Frank Mir (Saturday 10pm from Las Vegas live on Pay-Per-View); Bellator Fighting Championships 70 (Friday 8pm from New Orleans live on MTV2)

Go watch the fight at Jimmy’s Famous Seafood in Dundalk Saturday night. Get the crab nachos. While you’re there, ask the crew if they can serve you a beer in a Batman or Superman glass WITH A CAPE…

But yeah, there’s a fight Saturday night or something.

2. Auto Racing: IndyCar Series Indianapolis 500 (Sunday 12pm from Indy live on ABC); NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 (Sunday 5:30pm from Charlotte live on FOX)

I’ve running on empty. Give me Helio Castroneves in the 500 and Alina Vacariu in her underwear…

1. College Lacrosse: NCAA Tournament Final Four-Maryland vs. Duke (Saturday 5pm from Foxborough, MA live on ESPN2), Loyola vs. Notre Dame (Saturday 2:30pm from Foxborough, MA live on ESPN2); NCAA Championship Game (Monday 1pm from Foxborough, MA live on ESPN)

You mean to tell me there’s a chance Maryland and Loyola could BOTH win Saturday and Duke and Notre Dame could BOTH lose?

This is what we like to call “Nirvana.”

Oh…and here’s the picture of the Duke kid crying. Because what the hell else did you think I would post here?

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
