8. Pro Wrestling: “WCW War Games: WCW’s Most Notorious Matches” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday)

Wait…didn’t I just see a WCW throwback recently on a basketball floor?

I thought so!

7. Cycling: Tour de France (Stage 1 Saturday 7:30am Stage 2 Sunday 7:30am Stage 3 Monday 6:30am from France live on NBC Sports Network)

They put cycling on television for hours every day. How are they still struggling with the concept that if they’d just put Ultimate Frisbee on, I’d NEVER STOP WATCHING.

6. Auto Racing: NASCAR Quaker State 400 (Saturday 7:30pm from Sparta, KY live on TNT)

For winning last week’s race at Sonoma, Martin Truex received an awesome wine goblet…

Jesus, good going NASCAR. You keep trying to distance yourself from the hoity-toity wine and cheese crowd, but you always end up going back. Figures.

5. NHL Entry Draft (Sunday 3pm live on NBC Sports Network 8pm live on NHL Network. All draft from Newark, NJ)

Congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks on winning the Stanley Cup. F*ck your dirty water, Chowderheads. Although I’ll admit, Boston’s coach is probably still a bit cooler than Chicago’s…
