Top 10 Baseball Distractions

September 27, 2011 | Glenn Clark

4. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC Live-Dominick Cruz vs. Demetrious Johnson (Saturday 9pm from Verizon Center live on VERSUS); Bellator Fighting Championships 52 (Saturday 9pm from Lake Charles, LA live on MTV2)

The word is that current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion (and brother of Ravens DL Arthur Jones) Jon “Bones” Jones will be in attendance at Sunday night’s Ravens game. That’s awesome.

Not awesome? Steven Seagal’s bizarre involvement in MMA at this point. Check this weird interview with AOL after 135…

3. Horse Racing: Jim McKay Maryland Million Day (Saturday 12pm Laurel Park)

What’s the word I’m looking for when I note that Maryland Million Day is happening on the same day that I officially move into a future horse farm in Monkton?

I’m starting to think on names for my first racehorse, which I might never get. If I do, I want it to have an awesome name. Perhaps “Honeypot”?

2. College Football: Towson @ Maryland (Saturday 3:30pm live on Comcast SportsNet/AM1570; Air Force @ Navy (Saturday 12pm from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium live on CBS); North Carolina A&T @ Morgan State (Saturday 1pm Hughes Stadium); Nebraska @ Wisconsin (Sunday 8pm from Madison, WI live on ABC)

Yes, I’m VERY nervous for the Terps against the Tigers Saturday afternoon. There’s no reason why I shouldn’t be, folks.

Even if the Terrapins hold off the Tigers on the gridiron Saturday, I know one area where they can’t stack up…


That’s Washington Wizards cheerleader “Erin”. She went to Towson. Of course she did.

1. NFL: New York Jets @ Baltimore Ravens (Sunday 8:20pm from M&T Bank Stadium live on NBC)

I can’t possibly hype this one any more. I just hope Rex Ryan says something stupid before the game. I also hope that after the Ravens are victorious, we all get together at Hightopps in Timonium Monday night for some Santa Fe fries in victory…


Let’s go boys.

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
