Top 10 Baseball Distractions

4. Pro Wrestling: WWE Vengeance (Sunday 8pm from San Antonio live on Pay-Per-View)

Remember in the summer when CM Punk was a disturbed face and wrestling kinda kicked ass? Well we’re back to lots of John Cena and the shows being basically unwatchable.

But hey, Vengeance is Sunday night. It will probably suck. It CERTAINLY won’t be as good as the FIRST Vengeance, when Chris Jericho unified the belts…

3. NHL: Florida Panthers @ Washington Capitals (Tuesday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Washington Capitals @ Philadelphia Flyers (Thursday 7pm from Philly live on Comcast SportsNet/NHL Network), Detroit Red Wings @ Washington Capitals (Saturday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet/NHL Network)

Sure the Caps season is underway and successful thus far, but more importantly (for me) the Phoenix Coyotes are rocking and rolling as well.

More importantly still, someone has been making NHL “Foogos”, including this one for the ‘Yotes of roast beef and turkey cold cuts…


I haven’t seen one for the Capitals yet. That’s fine by me.

2. College Football: Maryland @ Florida State (Saturday 3:30pm from Tallahassee, FL live on ABC), East Carolina @ Navy (Saturday 3:30pm from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium live on CBS Sports), Towson @ William & Mary (Saturday 3:30pm from Williamsburg, VA live on AM1570, Lycoming @ Stevenson (Saturday 1pm Mustang Stadium); Auburn @ LSU (Saturday 3:30pm from Baton Rouge, LA live on CBS)

Terrapins/Seminoles Saturday? I would post Jenn Sterger photos here, but (and I reminder that I love America) apparently they held a contest to find new FSU Cowgirls recently…


I should really be making this trip.

1. NFL: Baltimore Ravens @ Jacksonville Jaguars (Monday 8:30pm from Jacksonville live on ESPN)

Cue Mark Viviano…

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
