Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 27 May 2013 by Glenn Clark

We’re doing things backwards a bit this week because of the holiday. The “Monday Reality Check” will now be a “Tuesday Reality Check.” T10BD reflects the week beginning tomorrow, May 28 through Monday, June 3rd. And before we get started, this feels appropriate.

Honorable Mention: MLL-Hamilton Nationals @ Chesapeake Bayhawks (Saturday 7:30pm from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium live on CBS Sports Network); WNBA: Atlanta Dream @ Washington Mystics (Sunday 4pm Verizon Center)

10. Tim McGraw (Saturday 7pm Jiffy Lube Live); Kelly Rowland & The Dream (Tuesday 7pm Rams Head Live), Pop Evil (Thursday 7pm Rams Head Live); Aaron Neville (Tuesday 8pm Rams Head on Stage), Bacon Brothers (Friday & Saturday 6:30pm & 9:30pm Rams Head on Stage), Candlebox (Monday 8pm Rams Head on Stage); Fall Out Boy (Friday 8pm 9:30 Club); Flobots (Sunday 7pm U Street Music Hall); John Fogerty “Wrote A Song For Everyone” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

Not much to like here. I mean, I’m not a Tim McGraw guy but I’ve had a few BBQ stains in my day…

Dear Aaron Neville-thanks for letting us borrow your city to win a Super Bowl. Cheers!

I hate how much people my age know every word to every Fall Out Boy song. But damn if I’m not one of them.

John Fogerty + Foo Fighters + “Fortunate Son” = I might watch this video all night.

9. Artie Lange (Saturday 7:30pm & 10pm Howard Theatre); Kevin James (Wednesday 7:30pm Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric); Hal Sparks (Thursday-Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); After Earth” and “Now You See Me” out in theaters (Friday); Artfest (Saturday 12pm Boordy Vineyards); Great Grapes! Wine and Food Festival (Saturday & Sunday 12pm Oregon Ridge); “A Taste Of Two Cities”-Baltimore vs. DC Food Trucks (Saturday 12pm Rash Field)

I feel like Baltimore should EASILY win a competition against DC in terms of food. All you do is show up with some sweet corn and lather it in Old Bay. Competition over. The Clark Family did a bit too much of that over Memorial Day weekend…

Competition still going? We shove Peppermint Sticks in lemons around these parts, son. What now?

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 17 July 2012 by Glenn Clark

Honorable Mention: Boxing-Adrian Broner vs. Vicente Escobedo (Saturday 10pm from Cincinnati live on HBO), Art Hovhannisyan vs. Miguel Acosta (Friday 11pm from Santa Ynez, CA live on Showtime), Friday Night Fights: Juan Carlos Burgos vs. Cesar Vasquez (Friday 9pm from Laughlin, NV live on ESPN2); Auto Racing: IndyCar Series Edmonton Indy (Sunday 2:45pm from Edmonton live on NBC Sports Network), NASCAR Nationwide Series STP 300 (Sunday 2pm from Joliet, IL live on ESPN); Pro Lacrosse: Chesapeake Bayhawks @ Ohio Machine (Saturday 8pm from Delaware, OH live on ESPN3.com)

10. Hot Chip/Sleigh Bells (Sunday 6pm Merriweather Post Pavilion); Kiss/Motley Crue (Friday 7pm Jiffy Lube Live), Sugarland (Sunday 7:30pm Jiffy Lube Live); Wilco (Tuesday & Wednesday 8pm Wolf Trap), The B-52′s/Squeeze (Thursday 8pm Wolf Trap), Jackson Browne (Monday 8pm Wolf Trap); Young The Giant (Friday 8pm Power Plant Live); Charm City Devils (Sunday 7pm Rams Head Live); Rusted Root (Tuesday 7pm Recher Theatre); Hoobastank (Friday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage), The English Beat (Sunday 6pm Baltimore Soundstage); Justin Jones (Saturday 8pm 9:30 Club); Marc Cohn (Wednesday 7:30pm Birchmere); Nicki Minaj (Saturday 7pm D.A.R. Constitution Hall); Citizen Cope “One Lovely Day” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

I should probably be too embarrassed to admit my fandom for Sugarland, but I’m also a man who has stuffed 29 boneless Asian Zing wings down his gullet in 8 minutes. There is no such thing as embarrassment…

I would imagine you’ll see me Friday night at PPL. I’m not even 30 yet, but I already feel like I’m approaching “am I too old to be here?” territory. I just can’t hide the fact that I sorta enjoy Young The Giant…

I quite simply love John Allen and I’m so happy for the success he’s finding with Charm City Devils. Not really any other way to say it…

I am a ridiculously big fan of Citizen Cope. He’s playing Silopanna later this Summer and I would suggest you be there. This is the single from the new record…

9. “The Dark Knight Rises” opens in theaters (Friday); Guy Torry (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); Tony Woods (Thursday-Saturday Magooby’s Joke House); Lavell Crawford (Thursday-Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory)

Okay be honest. Which are you more excited for? Christian Bale as Batman…

OR….OR….OR….Steve Nash as Batman???

I won’t be rooting for him as a Laker, but I still can’t hate Nash. Even after he killed Maryland in the NCAA Tournament.
