Top 10 Baseball Distractions

April 07, 2014 | Glenn Clark

4. NHL: Washington Capitals @ St. Louis Blues (Tuesday 8pm from St. Louis live on NBC Sports Network/Comcast SportsNet), Washington Capitals @ Carolina Hurricanes (Thursday 7pm from Raleigh, NC live on Comcast SportsNet), Chicago Blackhawks @ Washington Capitals (Friday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Tampa Bay Lightning @ Washington Capitals (Sunday 3pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet)

The Caps broke a losing streak against the Islanders Saturday night. They however did not QUITE win by the score Russian Machine Never Breaks noticed Comcast SportsNet said they won by.

3. College Football: University of Maryland Pro Timing Day (Tuesday Byrd Stadium/Cole Field House); Maryland Red/White Spring Game (Friday 7pm Byrd Stadium); Navy Open Practice/Kids’ Clinic (Saturday 10am Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium)

Perhaps you think yourself a college football fan. Perhaps you ARE a college football fan. You’re not as big a college football fan as Clint Baker. No one is.

2. Golf: The Masters (Thursday & Friday 3pm live on ESPN Saturday 3pm Sunday 2pm live on CBS. All golf from Augusta, GA)

If Tommy Hunter ends up struggling, I think the Orioles should consider turning to Matt Jones. He’s the best damn closer I’ve ever seen.

1. College Lacrosse: Maryland @ Johns Hopkins (Saturday 2pm from Homewood Field live on ESPNU); Boston University @ Loyola (Saturday 1pm from Ridley Athletic Complex live on Patriot League Network); Navy @ Army (Saturday 2pm from West Point, NY live on CBS Sports Network); Hartford @ UMBC (Saturday 3:30pm from UMBC Stadium live on; Penn State @ Towson (Saturday 7pm from Unitas Stadium live on Towson Sports Network)

I love the Terps, but I doubt anyone on their team will do anything quite as awesome as what Miles Thompson did against Hopkins Friday night.

I just hope the Terrapins have a better result. (Sorry…you know how it is.)
