Top 10 Baseball Distractions

8. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC 160-Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva 2 (Saturday 10pm from Las Vegas live on Pay-Per-View)

I don’t have a ton to say about the upcoming Heavyweight title fight. So instead, here’s Jennifer Lawrence preparing for the next X-Men…

Or maybe Alice Eve from Star Trek…

Yep. That worked.

7. NHL Playoffs: Eastern Conference Playoffs-Boston Bruins vs. New York Rangers (Game 3 Tuesday 7:30pm from New York live on NBC Sports Network Game 4 Thursday 7pm from New York live on CNBC Game 5 if necessary Saturday 5:30pm from Boston live on NBC Sports Network Game 6 if necessary Monday TBA from New York live on TBA), Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Ottawa Senators (Game 4 Wednesday 7:30pm from Ottawa live on NBC Sports Network Game 5 Friday 7:30pm from Pittsburgh live on NBC Sports Network Game 6 if necessary Sunday TBA from Ottawa live on TBA); Western Conference Playoffs: Los Angeles Kings vs. San Jose Sharks (Game 4 Tuesday 10pm from San Jose live on NBC Sports Network Game 5 Thursday 10:30pm from Los Angeles live on NBC Sports Network Game 6 if necessary Sunday TBA from San Jose live on TBA), Chicago Blackhawks vs. Detroit Red Wings (Game 4 Thursday 8pm from Detroit live on NBC Sports Network Game 5 Saturday 8pm from Chicago live on NBC Game 6 if necessary Monday TBA from Detroit live on TBA)

If you missed it in “Web Junk” Monday, here’s the worst version of the Star-Spangled Banner…ever.

6. NBA Playoffs: Eastern Conference Finals-Miami Heat vs. Indiana Pacers (Game 1 Wednesday 8:30om from Miami live on TNT Game 2 Friday 8:30pm from Miami live on TNT Game 3 Sunday 8:30pm from Indianapolis live on TNT); Western Conference Finals-San Antonio Spurs vs. Memphis Grizzlies (Game 2 Tuesday 9pm from San Antonio live on ESPN Game 3 Saturday 9pm from Memphis live on ESPN Game 4 Monday 9pm from Memphis live on ESPN)

It’s very difficult for me to watch the Grizz succeed after trading away the greatest man on the face of the planet, Greivis Vasquez.

Not difficult? Enjoying the Memphis Soul episode of PBS’ “In Performance At The White House”, namely the Justin Timberlake part.

5. Tennis: Roland Garros/French Open opening round (Sunday & Monday 5am live on ESPN2 10am live on Tennis Channel. All tennis from Paris)

I checked off a major event on my bucket list when I invaded Wimbledon last summer. Still on the list? The Bullring at the French Open.

Want picks to win? Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams. That’s not a guess. That’s a fact. Everyone on the face of the planet knows it. I’m not really sure why they’re even playing.
