Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 09 July 2013 by Glenn Clark

Honorable Mention: Cycling-Tour de France (Stages 10-15 Tuesday-Sunday 8am live on NBC Sports Network); Auto Racing: NASCAR Camping World RV Sales 301 (Sunday 1pm from Loudon, NH live on TNT), IndyCar Honda Indy Toronto (Race 1 Saturday 3pm from Toronto live on NBC Sports Network Race 2 Sunday 3pm from Toronto live on NBC Sports Network)

10. TGT feat. Tyrese, Ginuwine, Tank (Friday 8pm Pier Six Pavilion); Warped Tour feat. The Used/Reel Big Fish (Wednesday 11am Merriweather Post Pavilion), Belle and Sebastian (Friday 6:30pm Merriweather Post Pavilion), Phish (Saturday & Sunday 5:30pm Merriweather Post Pavilion), Barenaked Ladies/Ben Folds Five/Guster (Monday 5:30pm Merriweather Post Pavilion); Train/Michael Franti & Spearhead (Friday 7pm Jiffy Lube Live), Lynyrd Skynyrd/Bad Company (Sunday 7pm Jiffy Lube Live); Los Lobos/Los Lonely Boys (Tuesday 8pm Wolf Trap), She & Him (Thursday 8pm Wolf Trap), Boz Scaggs/Michael McDonald (Monday 8pm Wolf Trap); Sister Hazel (Thursday 8pm Rams Head on Stage); The Specials (Friday 8pm Fillmore Silver Spring); Chris Isaak (Monday 7:30pm Birchmere); Paul McCartney (Friday 8pm Nationals Park)

Here’s Ben Folds playing “Army”. I enjoy this.

I’ve noticed a few more “dispensaries” popping up around town. In what I’m sure is an unrelated story, Phish is coming!

I have kickball Thursday night. But I’d give anything to be able to skip and go see Sister Hazel instead…

The bad news for you if you’re going to see Macca Friday night in DC is that I don’t THINK The Boss will be there with him…

9. Keenen Ivory Wayans (Thursday-Sunday Baltimore Comedy Factory); John Witherspoon (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); The Gathering: Food Truck Rally (Friday 5pm Keswick Castle); Caribbean Carnival Festival (Saturday & Sunday Lake Clifton Park); Annapolis Irish Festival (Friday & Saturday Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds); Spring Breakers” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); Grown Ups 2” and “Pacific Rim” out in theaters (Friday)

Is there any chance that KIW could put together a complete In Living Color reunion this weekend?

The release of “Spring Breakers” probably means this is my last chance to post this picture…

Patti LaBelle (Saturday & Sunday M&T Bank Stadium); Jay-Z “Magna Carta Holy Grail” available in stores/on iTunes (Sunday)

I’m more than a bit embarrassed by how much I enjoy Chris Daughtry…

The Doobie Brothers made the most important music video of all time that wasn’t “Virtual Insanity” by Jamiroquai…

Go see Wild Feathers. Now.

I dare you to watch this whole Verve Pipe video and not cry.

9. Michael Winslow (Wednesday 7:30pm & 9:45pm Baltimore Comedy Factory); Tom Papa (Friday-Sunday DC Improv); Despicable Me 2“, “The Lone Ranger (Wednesday) and “The Way, Way Back (Friday) out in theaters; Ports America Chesapeake 4th of July Celebration (Thursday 9:30pm Inner Harbor), Annapolis 4th of July Parade (Thursday 6:30pm Downtown Annapolis), Kingsville Independence Day Parade (Thursday 10am “Downtown” Kingsville)

There is no more American way to celebrate the 4th of July than to watch “The Sandlot”…

Honorable Mention: Auto Racing-NASCAR STP Gas Booster 500 (Sunday 1pm from Martinsville, VA live on FOX), IndyCar Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama (Sunday 3pm from Birmingham live on NBC Sports Network); Golf: PGA Tour Valero Texas Open (Thursday & Friday 3pm live on Golf Channel, Saturday & Sunday 1pm live on Golf Channel 3pm live on NBC.

10. Maroon 5/Neon Trees/Owl City (Wednesday 7:30pm Verizon Center); Green Day (Thursday 7:30pm Patriot Center); They Might Be Giants (Saturday 9pm Rams Head Live); Brigance Brigade Foundation Benefit feat. Charm City Devils/Loving The Lie (Saturday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage); Senses Fail (Friday 8pm Ottobar); Marc Broussard (Monday 8pm Rams Head on Stage); Meek Mill (Saturday 8pm Fillmore Silver Spring); Ozomatli (Wednesday 7pm 9:30 Club), Local Natives (Friday 8pm Saturday 7pm 9:30 Club), Black Crowes (Monday 7pm 9:30 Club); Carolina Chocolate Drops (Wednesday 7:30pm Birchmere); Macklemore & Ryan Lewis/Walk The Moon (Sunday George Washington University)

I like Charm City Devils. I LOVE supporting anything involving O.J. Brigance. Nice little Saturday night then.

Loving The Lie is another excellent Baltimore band playing the event Saturday night. I throw my support fully behind that.

Genuinely believe I’ve heard more about Local Natives in the last month than I’ve heard about U2 in my life. Pretty good reason for that.

I can get behind EVERYTHING about Carolina Chocolate Drops…

9. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Dragons (Tuesday-Sunday 1st Mariner Arena); Jon Lovitz/Chris Kattan/Tim Meadows (Thursday 7:30pm Birchmere); Louis C.K. (Saturday 8pm & 10:30pm Meyerhoff Symphony Hall); Brian Regan (Friday 8pm Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric); Shawn & Marlon Wayans (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); Craig Shoemaker (Thursday 8pm Baltimore Comedy Factory), Bret Ernst (Friday & Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Rich Vos (Thursday-Saturday Magooby’s Joke House); “That Thing You Do!” available on Blu-Ray (Tuesday)

Don’t kill me for this, but I searched “That Thing You Do!” on YouTube and discovered this video of ‘N Sync performing the song over a decade ago. I could have ignored the video, but instead I shared it with you here.

Language, but nothing not to enjoy about Louis C.K…

The xx? In the words of Joe Flacco, “I don’t know.”

Forrester and I have gone to see Ra Ra Riot a few times. What of it?

Sister Hazel should legally be forced to play a show here once a week.

This Ben Harper/Charlie Musselwhite thing is a “yes.”

9. Baltimore County Winter Restaurant Week (Tuesday-Sunday); Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters“, “Movie 43” and “Parker” out in theaters (Friday); John Witherspoon (Friday-Sunday Baltimore Comedy Factory), Todd Glass (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); Maryland State Police Polar Bear Plunge (Saturday Sandy Point State Park)

The Polar Bear Plunge is a FINE reminder that…it’s been awhile since we’ve seen bikinis around here…

Now we should check in on Jennifer Lopez in Parker…

Okay. Nothing to see here obviously.

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 18 December 2012 by Glenn Clark

Honorable Mention: Boxing-Tomasz Adamek vs. Steve Cunningham (Saturday 4pm from Bethlehem, PA live on NBC); MISL Soccer: Baltimore Blast @ Chicago Soul (Friday 8:30pm from Hoffman Estates, IL live on MISLtv.com), Baltimore Blast @ Milwaukee Wave (Saturday 7pm from Milwaukee live on MISLtv.com)

10. Dave Matthews Band/Lumineers (Tuesday 7:30pm 1st Mariner Arena); The Killers (Tuesday 7:30pm Patriot Center); Mike Ruocco (Sunday 7pm Recher Theatre); Grace Potter (Tuesday 7pm Baltimore Soundstage); Carbon Leaf (Tuesday & Wednesday 8pm Rams Head on Stage), Los Lobos (Thursday 6:30pm & 9:30pm Rams Head on Stage); Grouplove (Tuesday & Wednesday 7pm 9:30 Club), Virginia Coalition (Saturday 8pm 9:30 Club); Chatham County Line (Wednesday 7:30pm Birchmere)

Still can’t believe Dave Matthews is playing Charm City. First time since 1994. Going to be an exceptional evening.

And they brought Lumineers? Outstanding.

I remember the summer after “Hot Fuss” was released I saw The Killers at Merriweather Post Pavilion. The place was a mobscene. It was a fine damn night. This is one of the greatest rock and roll songs of the 21st century…

I beat Andrew Poliakoff from VACO in “Everybody Beats Glenn”, but I lost a bet to him on the Ravens game and had to Tweet out “HTTR” which was the most painful thing EVER.

9. Paul Mooney (Thursday 8pm Howard Theatre); This is 40” & “Jack Reacher” out in theaters (Friday); Glenn Clark’s annual holiday party (Friday “In The Corn”)

Once again I’ve partnered with ABC Rental Rosedale for my own Christmas Party. I DEFINITELY picked up one of these…

But I could definitely still use a few of these before the party…

And I REALLY want to serve THESE…

10. The Bridge (Saturday 8pm Maryland Science Center); Deftones (Friday 9pm Rams Head Live); Eric Church (Friday 7:30pm Patriot Center); Jah Works/Can’t Hang (Saturday 8pm 8×10 Club); Three Days Grace (Wednesday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage), Ballyhoo!

Glad to have The Bridge back, even if it’s only for one show…

I probably enjoy Eric Church more than I should be willing to admit…

Here’s Jerry Douglas with Mumford & Sons. Just exceptional…

You may remember Gary Clark Jr. from the NFL Draft open he did for ESPN with Ray Lewis and Nas. The guy is so boss…

9. Annapolis Craft Beer and Music Festival (Saturday 12pm Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium); ZooBooo! (Friday-Sunday Maryland Zoo in Baltimore); Halloween Lantern Parade & Festival (Saturday 3:30pm Patterson Park); “Cloud Atlas” opens in theaters (Friday); “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); Todd Rexx (Thursday-Saturday Magooby’s Joke House); Jim Breuer (Friday-Sunday DC Improv); Big O & Dukes Horde-a-Ween II (Friday 8pm Recher Theatre)

This is what I want to go as for Halloween. Can someone just buy this FOR me?

Also, can you help my girlfriend with a “Mrs. Bubba The Love Sponge” costume? That would be SWELL.

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 14 August 2012 by Glenn Clark

Honorable MentionGolf: PGA Tour Wyndham Championship (Thursday & Friday 3pm live on Golf Channel Saturday & Sunday 3pm live on CBS. All golf from Greensboro, NC), Champions Tour Dick’s Sporting Goods Open (Friday 12:30pm Saturday & Sunday 3pm from Endicott, NY live on Golf Channel), LPGA Tour Safeway Classic (Friday & Saturday 6:30pm Sunday 7:30pm from North Plains, OR live on Golf Channel); WNBA: Washington Mystics @ Indiana Fever (Thursday 7pm from Indianapolis live on WNBA.com), Washington Mystics @ Minnesota Lynx (Friday 8pm from Minneapolis live on NBA TV), Chicago Sky @ Washington Mystics (Sunday 4pm from Chicago live on Comcast SportsNet/NBA TV); Auto Racing: NASCAR Pure Michigan 400 (Sunday 12pm from Brooklyn, MI live on ESPN)

10. My Morning Jacket (Saturday 5:30pm Merriweather Post Pavilion); John Prine/Emmylou Harris (Wednesday 7:30pm Wolf Trap); Cinderella (Friday 7:30pm Rams Head Live); Bob Schneider (Wednesday 8pm Rams Head on Stage), Soul Asylum (Saturday 8:30pm Rams Head on Stage); Dirty Projectors/Wye Oak (Friday & Saturday 8pm 9:30 Club); Chrisette Michelle (Tuesday & Wednesday 8pm Howard Theatre); Jane’s Addiction (Tuesday 7pm Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric); Hot August Blues feat. Trombone Shorty/Gov’t Mule/Cris Jacobs Band (Saturday 11:30am Oregon Ridge); Nonpoint (Monday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage)

Dude I’ve probably watched the video of Emmylou Harris playing “Long Black Veil” with Dave Matthews SIX MILLION TIMES in my life….

Bob Schneider does a song called “Honeypot” that as far as I’m concerned is just the bees knees…

Jane’s Addiction taught me so much about prostitution when I was a young man…

If you’re into Trombone Shorty you’re just likely not into anything human beings should possibly enjoy…

9. Baltimore County Restaurant Week (Thursday-Sunday throughout Baltimore County); Baltimore Improv Festival (Thursday-Sunday Creative Alliance); Wayans Brothers (Tuesday & Wednesday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Godfrey (Thursday-Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); “The Expendables 2″ in theaters (Friday); Shark Week (Tuesday-Thursday Discovery Channel)

A recommendation. Go to Jimmy’s Famous Seafood during Restaurant Week. Order the Kung Pao Shrimp Tacos. Don’t bother wearing pants.

And since it’s Shark Week, here’s Tracy Morgan…

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.

Def Leppard makes quality rock and roll tunes. If you’re into that sorta thing…

Do people not dig Neon Trees as much as I do? The world is confusing.

You think I had never heard of Morris Day before Jay & Silent Bob? You’re absolutely accurate.

I’m so stoked for new ZBB. I also love America. The two are synonymous, you see.

9. Paul Mooney (Friday & Saturday Howard Theatre); Cirque du Soleil “The Immortal: Michael Jackson” (Friday-Sunday Verizon Center); Flip Orley (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); “American Reunion” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); “Ice Age: Continental Drift” out in theaters (Friday); Caribbean Carnival Festival (Friday-Sunday Clifton Park)

I really wanted American Reunion to be something I would enjoy. I was wrong.

Making life more difficult? I recently found out Shannon Elizabeth was 38. #Suicidal

All track from Eugene, OR); Swimming (Monday 6:30pm live on NBC Sports Network 8pm live on NBC. All swimming from Omaha)

10. Earth, Wind & Fire (Thursday 6pm Pier Six Pavilion), Childish Gambino (Saturday 6:30pm Pier Six Pavilion); Rascal Flatts/Little Big Town (Saturday 7pm Jiffy Lube Live); Counting Crows (Wednesday 7pm Wolf Trap), Diana Krall (Tuesday 7:30pm Meyerhoff Symphony Hall Thursday 8pm Wolf Trap); Jill Scott (Thursday 7pm Verizon Center); LMFAO (Monday 7pm Patriot Center); Mr. Greengenes (Friday 8pm Power Plant Live); Tech N9ne/Machine Gun Kelly (Tuesday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage), Ice Cube/Wale/DJ Khaled (Wednesday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage); Deanna Bogart Band (Saturday 8:30pm Rams Head on Stage); The Hives (Tuesday 7pm 9:30 Club), Modest Mouse (Wednesday & Thursday 7pm 9:30 Club); Fiona Apple (Wednesday 8pm Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric); Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers (Friday & Saturday 8pm Jammin’ Java); Del Ray Music Festival feat.

Soul Asylum/Cowboy Mouth (Saturday & Sunday Pennsylvania Avenue DC); Smashing Pumpkins “Oceania” and Kenny Chesney “Welcome to the Fishbowl” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

I like Donald Glover on “Community” (Six seasons and a movie!) and all, but I was always skeptical about him as a performer. But honestly, not bad (lyrics NSFW)…

Quick. Favorite Counting Crows song ever. I’ll go with this…

Wale and Kevin Durant have something in common. I like them both a LOT but would like them a hell of a lot more if they weren’t Redskins fans…

Fiona Apple is coming to town. Anyone remember their awkward feelings about seeing her in her underwear in the “Criminal” video? I can’t tell you how confused I was about myself watching it the first time…

9. Aziz Ansari (Friday 7:30pm Meyerhoff Symphony Hall); Paul Mooney (Thursday-Sunday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Jim Gaffigan (Thursday DC Improv); “Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter”, “Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World” & “Brave” out in theaters (Friday)

If you don’t think Aziz Ansari is funny I don’t think this conversation is going anywhere and we might want to consider talking to other people…

Also, I think I AM planning on a midnight screening for ALVH Thursday night. I’m hoping to come dressed like this…

If you don’t go see this movie you’re a terrible American.
