Top 10 Baseball Distractions

4. Golf: PGA Tour RBC Canadian Open (Thursday & Friday 3pm live on Golf Channel Saturday & Sunday 3pm live on CBS. All golf from Vancouver); Champions Tour Senior British Open/Open Championship (Thursday-Sunday 12pm from Surrey, ENG live on ESPN); LPGA Tour Evian Masters (Thursday & Friday 6:30pm Saturday & Sunday 1pm from Evian-les-Bains, France on Golf Channel)

Golf fans everywhere had better hope Mike Weir wins the Canadian Open this weekend. Otherwise, I think we know what to expect from the fans in Vancouver…

If Weir DOES win, it will be a “wonderful day for Canada, and therefore the world.”

This is the third and final week of the Tour de France and I still don’t know anything about it.

2. NFL League Meetings (Thursday Atlanta)


Seriously, I’d love to have something more to say here but I just don’t. Get the damn thing done and let’s have something real to talk about next week.

In the meantime, here’s a picture of Jessica Burciaga from our friends over at Guyism. It’s significantly more worth talking about…


1. Action Sports: Dew Tour Pantech Open (Thursday-Sunday Ocean City inlet, Saturday 3pm Sunday 4pm live on NBC)

When I was younger, I was disturbed by the music video “Scrape.” As I’ve gotten older it hasn’t gotten much easier to stomach…

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
