Top 10 Baseball Distractions

August 22, 2011 | Glenn Clark

4. Tennis: ATP Tour Winston-Salem Open (Thursday 5pm live on Tennis Channel Friday 12pm live on ESPN2 9pm live on Tennis Channel Saturday-FINAL-12:30pm live on CBS. All tennis from Winston-Salem, NC) US Open Series ATP Tour & WTA Tour US Open Opening Round (Monday 11am live on Tennis Channel 1pm & 7pm live on ESPN2. Tennis from New York)

I’m not sure what I’m more miffed about. I’m miffed that Ellicott City native and all around cool gal Trice Capra failed to qualify to get to the Big Apple, but I’m MORE miffed that in two days she reports for the next part of her life…


ARGH! Didn’t she hear the Peter Rosenberg song? Duke SUCKS!

A note to Mark Turgeon-no pressure here. I NEED you to beat Duke twice next season. This is a must. I can’t have Trice Capra rubbing it in my face.

(Edit from GMC: I have no reason to think Trice Capra would rub it in my face. I just REALLY don’t want the Terps losing to Duke again.)

3. Pro Lacrosse: MLL Championship Weekend-Chesapeake Bayhawks vs. Boston Cannons (Saturday 12pm) Hamilton Nationals vs. Denver Outlaws (Saturday 3pm) MLL Championship Game (Sunday 3pm) (All games from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium live on ESPN2/

This much I know. Denver CAN’T win the Pro lax title. They have enough going for them in the Mile High City (I think). I’m sick of them taking everything we should rightly have here in Charm City.

Of course our team plays in Annapolis, so I guess they’ve already taken that from us.

Jesus, what do we still have here?


Oh no. We need to leave here.

2. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC RIO-Anderson Silva vs. Yushin Okami (Saturday 9pm from Rio de Janeiro, BRA live on Pay-Per-View)

There’s half a chance I take a peak at this Saturday night by the way.

There’s bigger news in the MMA community, as Dana White announced a partnership that would bring UFC fights to FOX.

I’m excited about UFC on FOX and all, but I’ll admit I’m also a BIT concerned. I mean, this is the network that for some reason thinks it’s a good idea to make an animated show out of “Napoleon Dynamite.”

Napoleon Dynamite is AWFUL.

Although…this was KINDA funny…

Eh. I take it back. Not that funny either.

1. NFL: Washington Redskins @ Baltimore Ravens (Thursday 8pm from M&T Bank Stadium live on ESPN); Glenn Clark’s 3rd annual “I Hate The Redskins” Show (Tuesday 2pm live on AM1570/

Or as we like to call it around here, the week where Glenn Clark does his DAMNDEST to figure out a way to get linked by the Washington Post, Deadspin and others.

You know, I’d start by making a Skins joke here-but we’re going to see John Beck and Rex Grossman Thursday night. I don’t think I need to say anything else.

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
