Top 10 Baseball Distractions

December 06, 2011 | Glenn Clark

8. Boxing-Amir Khan vs. Lamont Petersen (Saturday 9:45pm from Walter E. Washington Convention Center live on HBO)

Apparently Khan is the favorite and Petersen is the underdog. I should probably ask Thyrl Nelson to be sure, but it’s late and he has a wife. There are rules there. Or something like that.

This is the part where I’m supposed to tell you something else about the world of boxing, but I don’t really have anything here. So…ummm….here’s a drunk dude dancing to “Uptown Girl” by Billy Joel at a wedding…

7. Pro Wrestling: TNA Final Resolution (Sunday 8pm from Orlando live on Pay-Per-View)

I think there’s a TNA PPV every month. Every time I end up posting a picture of Mickie James in T10BD. So…happy December???

6. NHL: Washington Capitals @ Ottawa Senators (Wednesday 7pm from Ottawa live on Comcast SportsNet), Toronto Maple Leafs @ Washington Capitals (Friday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet)

You know we’re doing a charity winter clothes drive here at WNST, right? We’re doing to take coats, gloves, jackets, hats, earmuffs, etc. to the Helping Up Mission downtown to benefit some of the less fortunate in Charm City. I hope you’ll bring some warm clothes by the studios at 1550 Hart Rd. in Towson sometime.

Our charity drive is cool, but it isn’t HALF as cool as the Calgary Hitmen’s annual Teddy Bear Toss, which went down over the weekend…

25,000+ stuffed animals to donate to charities in Western Canada. Holy hell we should come up with something like that.

5. Soccer: MISL Missouri Comets @ Baltimore Blast (Friday 7:35pm 1st Mariner Arena), Syracuse Silver Knights @ Baltimore Blast (Saturday 7:35pm 1st Mariner Arena); College Soccer: NCAA College Cup-Creighton vs. Charlotte (Friday 6pm from Hoover, AL live on ESPNU), North Carolina vs. UCLA (Friday 8:30pm from Hoover, AL live on ESPNU), NCAA Championship Game (Sunday 1pm from Hoover, AL live on ESPNU)

You should come to the Blast game Friday night. At WNST, we’re extending a “Purple Friday” to include the big soccer showdown. Call 410-73-BLAST. Mention WNST when you purchase your tickets and you’ll be invited to a private pregame Q&A session with Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith.

Not familiar with Torrey Smith? He’s the man who did this against the Pittsburgh Steelers…

Don’t just come ask him questions, bring the man a CROWN.
