Top 10 Baseball Distractions

4. High School Lacrosse: MIAA Lacrosse Championships-A Conference Semifinals Calvert Hall vs. Boys’ Latin (Tuesday 6pm Unitas Stadium), Loyola Blakefield vs. Gilman (Tuesday 8:30pm Unitas Stadium), A Conference Final (Friday 8:15pm Unitas Stadium); C Conference Semifinals St. John’s Catholic Prep @ St. Vincent Pallotti (Tuesday 4pm), Lutheran @ Gerstell Academy (Tuesday 4pm), C Conference Final (Friday 3pm Unitas Stadium); B Conference Semifinals Archbishop Curley @ Friends (Tuesday 4pm), Saints Peter & Paul @ John Carroll (Tuesday 4pm), B Conference Final (Friday 5:30pm Unitas Stadium)

Hey there, young people involved in this week’s MIAA contests. Don’t do what your friends in Canada recently did…

3. Soccer: UEFA Champions League Final-Bayern Munich vs. Chelsea (Saturday 2:45pm from Munich live on FOX); MLS-Colorado Rapids @ DC United (Wednesday 7:30pm from RFK Stadium live on Comcast SportsNet), Toronto FC @ DC United (Saturday 7:30pm from RFK Stadium live on Comcast SportsNet)

I’ll decide who I’m rooting for in the Champions League final by determining which club’s home country makes better sausage. It’s the only way to pick anything in Europe.

British sausage…

German sausage…

This is WAY too difficult. I hope it ends in a draw. And since it’s soccer, I’ll have to imagine it will.

2. College Lacrosse: NCAA Tournament-Johns Hopkins vs. Maryland (Saturday 12pm from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium live on ESPN2), Loyola vs. Denver (Saturday 2:30pm from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium live on ESPN2); Virginia vs. Notre Dame (Sunday 12pm from Chester, PA live on ESPNU), Duke vs. Colgate (Sunday 2:30pm from Chester, PA live on ESPNU); NCAA Division III Lacrosse Tournament: Denison @ Stevenson (Wednesday 7pm Mustang Stadium)

Won’t be easy for the Greyhounds to beat the Pioneers a third time in a single season. Also not easy? Scoring a goal from 75 yards out…

1. Horse Racing: Preakness Stakes (Saturday 2:30pm live on NBC Sports Network 4:30pm live on NBC. All horse racing from Pimlico); Black-Eyed Susan Stakes (Friday 4pm from Pimlico live on NBC Sports Network); Preakness Post Position Draw (Wednesday 6pm from Pimlico live on HRTV)

I haven’t decided what I’m wearing…it may or may not be as good as what I donned in Louisville…

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
