Top 10 Baseball Distractions

October 25, 2011 | Glenn Clark

8. College Basketball: University of Maryland Open Scrimmage (Saturday 1pm Comcast Center)

The good news? The start of Terps hoops season means Terps football season is coming to a close. The bad news? Terps hoops season might not be a whole lot better.

The better news? At least Terrapins fans don’t have to suffer through a rap video featuring old donors in hoops uniforms the way Bowling Green fans have to with the opening of the Stroh Center…

7. Lingerie Football League: Baltimore Charm @ Toronto Triumph (Friday 10pm from Toronto live on MTV2)

Why would I include a road game in the LFL on T10BD? I will admit that part of the reason is to bring you to the attention of a story about 20 Toronto players quitting their team due to safety concerns and the fact that one of their coaches was let go.


So…there MIGHT not be a game Friday night. And even if there is, Krista Ford won’t be involved…


That’s a loss for America AND Canada.

6. Glenn Clark’s Kickball Playoffs (Friday 6:45pm Cedar Lane Park Bel Air)

Does this group of people not look championship-caliber to you???


Eh. We’re not, but we’re damn fine drinkers. Speaking of which, if you’re in a beer kickball league and the majority of your team doesn’t drink you should LEAVE THE LEAGUE.

That is all.

5. High School Football: Homecoming-Franklin @ Perry Hall (Friday 7pm), Mt. St. Joseph @ Gilman (Friday 3:30pm)

I forgave the Indians for their bigger wins over PHHS in the past few years because they knocked North Harford out of the playoffs last year. That’s God’s work.

If you were listening to “The Reality Check” Monday on AM1570 (and I can’t think of a single reason why you wouldn’t have been), you heard me mention a story about a 17-year-old gal named Courtney Stodden during “Who’s Behaving Badly?”. Stodden is an “actress” married to 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson. They went to a pumpkin patch over the weekend (according to Guyism) and were asked to leave because she was dressed (very) inappropriately.

I’ll let you be the judge. Remember-she’s 17. She could be a student at Perry Hall. I wish more Perry Hall gals had taken cues like this in 1999…
