Top 10 Baseball Distractions

4. Soccer: FIFA Confederations Cup Semifinals-Brazil vs. Uruguay (Wednesday 2:30pm from Belo Horizonte, BRA live on ESPN), Spain vs. Italy (Thursday 2:30pm from Fortaleza, BRA live on ESPN), Championship Match (Sunday 5:30pm from Rio De Janeiro, BRA live on ESPN); FIFA U-20 World Cup: Team USA vs. Ghana (Thursday 1pm from Kayseri, Turkey live on ESPNU); U.S. Open Cup: New England Revolution @ DC United (Wednesday 7pm Maryland Soccerplex), MLS: Vancouver Whitecaps @ DC United (Saturday 7pm from RFK Stadium live on Comcast SportsNet)

Spain is going to win the Confederations Cup, but not everything is good news for the Spanish. In fact, a number of players had property stolen from them during a game of strip poker at a Brazilian hotel.

I hope they were playing with Chrissy Teigen or something…

3. Golf: PGA Tour AT&T National (Thursday & Friday 3pm live on Golf Channel Saturday & Sunday 1pm live on Golf Channel 3pm live on CBS. All golf from Congressional Country Club); U.S. Women’s Open (Thursday & Friday 3pm live on ESPN2 Saturday & Sunday 3pm live on NBC. All golf from Southampton, NY); Champions Tour Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship (Thursday & Friday 12:30pm Saturday & Sunday 2:30pm from Pittsburgh live on Golf Channel)

My pick to win this week in Bethesda? Ken Duke’s crazy eyes.

2. Tennis: ATP Tour WTA Tour Wimbledon (Tuesday 7am live on ESPN Wednesday & Thursday 7am live on ESPN2 Friday 7am Saturday 8am live on ESPN Monday 7am live on ESPN2 8am live on ESPN. All tennis from London)

I know a lonely boy who would give ANYTHING to be back across the pond for the fortnight…

1. NBA Draft (Thursday 7pm from Brooklyn, NY live on ESPN)

Alex Len might be the #1 pick in the NBA Draft.

Alex Len.

Good for him.

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
