8. Auto Racing: NASCAR Chase For the Sprint Cup Sylvania 300 (Sunday 2pm from Loudon, NH live on ESPN)
Tony Stewart recently won a NASCAR race. I don’t know what day it was, I don’t know if it was a race that mattered. But it was a NASCAR race.
Dale Earnhardt, Jr. was recently in a fairly humorous ESPN commercial. That’s what I have to share with you today…
7. Soccer: Canada @ Team USA Women (Thursday 11pm from Portland, OR live on ESPN2/ESPN3.com); MLS: Chivas USA @ DC United (Wednesday 7:30pm from RFK Stadium live on Comcast SportsNet), Real Salt Lake @ DC United (Saturday 7:30pm RFK Stadium); College Soccer: UMBC @ Loyola (Wednesday 7pm Ridley Athletic Complex)
I’m glad the US women are headed to Portland. Apparently in Portland they celebrate goals by having something named “Timber Joey” shave some wood off a log.
I wanted to think that this could be cool. I don’t think it is. I just really think it’s weird. But have fun in Oregon!
6. Golf: PGA Tour FedEx Cup Playoffs TOUR Championship (Thursday & Friday 1pm live on Golf Channel Saturday 1pm live on Golf Channel 2pm live on NBC Sunday 12pm live on Golf Channel 1:30 pm live on NBC. All golf from Atlanta); LPGA Tour: Solheim Cup (Friday & Saturday 2:30am Sunday 5am from Dunsany, Ireland live on Golf Channel)
I’ll be pulling for Team USA in the Solheim Cup. Partly because they’re the American team and I always pull for them, partly because that’s the team that Ryann O’Toole plays for…
5. Tennis: Champions Series HSBC Tennis Cup (Friday 7:30pm Verizon Center)
OH MY GOD OH MY GOD ANDRE AGASSI IS GOING TO BE IN WASHINGTON FRIDAY NIGHT!
That’s not the reaction of a screaming girl. That’s the reaction of Glenn Clark. Some would say they’re the same, but that’s because some are jerks.
Seriously, this still makes me weep.
