Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 14 July 2014 by Glenn Clark

Honorable Mention: WNBA: Washington Mystics @ Phoenix Mercury (Tuesday 10pm from Phoenix live on ESPN2), Washington Mystics @ Los Angeles Sparks (Thursday 10:30pm from Los Angeles live on WNBA Live Access); WNBA All-Star Game (Saturday 3:30pm from Phoenix live on ESPN); MLS: Chivas USA @ DC United (Sunday 8pm from RFK Stadium live on Comcast SportsNet/Univision); Mixed Martial Arts: UFC Fight Night-Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone vs. Jim Miller (Wednesday 9pm from Atlantic City live on Fox Sports 1), UFC Fight Night Conor McGregor vs. Diego Brandao (Saturday 3pm from Dublin live on UFC Fight Pass)

10. Artscape (Friday-Sunday Mount Royal); Flip Orley (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); The Purge: Anarchy“, “Planes: Fire and Rescue” and “Sex Tape” out in theaters (Friday); Rio 2” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday)

Artscape is so much better when Robert McClintock is involved. For example,

I’ll bet “Sex Tape” is horrible, but it doesn’t change how much this appears to be a nice scene.

9. Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings/Kelly Bell Band (Friday 7:30pm Artscape), Ozomatli/Galactic (Saturday 5:30pm Artscape), Anthony Hamilton (Sunday 6:30pm Artscape); New Edition (Saturday 8pm Baltimore Arena Sunday 8pm Verizon Center); Queens of the Stone Age/St. Vincent (Thursday 5:30pm Merriweather Post Pavilion), Fall Out Boy/Paramore/New Politics (Friday 5:30pm Merriweather Post Pavilion), O.A.R./Phillip Phillips (Saturday 5pm Merriweather Post Pavilion), Queen + Adam Lambert (Sunday 6:30pm Merriweather Post Pavilion); Bad Company/Lynyrd Skynyrd (Saturday 7pm Jiffy Lube Live); The Fray (Wednesday 7pm Wolf Trap), Straight No Chaser (Thursday 8pm Wolf Trap), Huey Lewis & The News (Sunday 8pm Wolf Trap), Lionel Richie/CeeLo Green (Monday 8pm Wolf Trap); Better Than Ezra (Friday 8pm Power Plant Live); The Bacon Brothers (Friday & Saturday 6:30pm & 9:30pm Rams Head on Stage); Bret Michaels (Thursday 8pm Rams Head Center Stage), Dennis DeYoung (Sunday 8pm Rams Head Center Stage); Lyfe Jennings (Friday 8pm Howard Theatre), De La Soul (Saturday 8pm Howard Theatre); Puss N Boots (Thursday 7pm 9:30 Club); Edwin McCain (Friday 7:30pm Birchmere); B.B. King (Thursday 8pm Warner Theatre); Ben Folds (Thursday 7:30pm Meyerhoff Symphony Hall); Veruca Salt (Monday 8pm Black Cat); John Hiatt/Robert Cray Band (Sunday 8pm Strathmore); Rise Against “The Black Market”, Jason Mraz “Yes!”, Bleachers “Strange Desire” and “Weird Al” Yankovic “Mandatory Fun” available (Tuesday)

Sharon Jones is a DAMN fine Artscape headliner. Maybe the best since Robert Randolph.

Ozomatli is also quite good at the music stuff.

The guy with two hands up? He’ll be at O.A.R. Saturday night.

And when it comes to guys who have the same first and last names (or close enough), I’ll take Phillip Phillips over Cam Cameron.
