Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 11 March 2014 by Glenn Clark

Honorable MentionNBA-Charlotte Bobcats @ Washington Wizards (Wednesday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Washington Wizards @ Orlando Magic (Friday 7pm from Orlando live on Comcast SportsNet), Brooklyn Nets @ Washington Wizards (Saturday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet); Women’s College Basketball: CAA Tournament (Thursday-Sunday from Showplace Arena live on CAA.TV/Comcast SportsNet), Selection Monday (Monday 7pm ESPN); Golf: PGA Tour Valspar Championship (Thursday & Friday 3pm live on Golf Channel Saturday & Sunday 1pm live on Golf Channel 3pm live on NBC.

10. Baltimore St. Patrick’s Day Parade (Sunday 2pm Inner Harbor); Shamrock Shindig (Sunday 11am Pierce’s Park); Need For Speed” and “Veronica Mars” out in theaters (Friday); Inside Llewyn Davis“, “Homefront” and “The Book Thief” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday)

Two very important things here. One, the appropriate St. Patty’s Day meal is NOT Corned Beef and Cabbage. It’s this.

Two-A reminder that after NFS star Aaron Paul (perhaps you’ve heard of him) finished his interview with us at the Super Bowl, he came back by the table to tell us it was his favorite one of the year. He personally thanked me. Because we’re best friends.

9. Shamrocks & Shenanigans feat. Mighty Mighty Bosstones (Saturday 7pm Power Plant Live); Paul Simon & Sting (Thursday 8pm Verizon Center); Uncle Kracker (Thursday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage); Mac McAnally (Saturday 8pm Rams Head on Stage); Dr. Dog (Friday & Saturday 8pm 9:30 Club); Steve Earle (Thursday 7:30pm Birchmere); The Moody Blues (Tuesday 8pm Strathmore); The Head and The Heart (Saturday 10:45am Rock N Roll Marathon DC); Ellie Goulding (Sunday 7pm Echostage); 311 “Stereolithic” and Aloe Blacc “Lift Your Spirit” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

Mighty Mighty Bosstones were the band from Clueless. Also, you’re 44. I understand how difficult this is. Just remember I love you.

I’m surprised Paul Simon has time to tour considering he’s spending most of his time posing for the cover of Tiger Beat.

)

I’d like to see Sting in DC and I’d like to see him at WrestleMania.

Aloe Blacc is that guy whose song you’ve NEVER STOPPED HEARING.
