Top 10 Baseball Distractions

8. Glenn Clark’s Christmas plans (Friday-Sunday)

I’m not going to tell you where I’m going Friday night because they’re not a sponsor. I’m only going to tell you that they’re located in Little Italy and they serve one HELL of a salad…

Oh. And December 25 equals the great Karen Clark’s stuffed shells. I’m stoked…

Oh. And we’ll be watching THIS on Christmas Eve…

7. WNST “Local Sports Person of the Year” announcement (Thursday 8:05am live on AM1570 WNST.net)

The history of this honor has been a bit strange. The first year I was back in Charm City (2008) I gave the honor to Michael Phelps without really asking for the opinion of anyone else in the building…but I didn’t really make a big deal about it.

In 2009, I again didn’t ask for the opinion of much of anyone else as I chose Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman to receive the honor. I just made a much bigger deal about it the second time.

Last year, we decided to make a HUGE deal about the honor-asking everyone in the company (and those who had contributed to WNST over the course of the year) to vote. Greivis Vasquez was chosen as the recipient in a VERY close vote.

5. College Football: Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl-FIU vs. Marshall (Tuesday 8pm from St. Petersburg live on ESPN), Poinsettia Bowl-TCU vs. Louisiana Tech (Wednesday 8pm from San Diego live on ESPN), MAACO Bowl-Arizona State vs. Boise State (Thursday 8pm from Las Vegas live on ESPN), Hawaii Bowl-Southern Miss vs. Nevada (Saturday 8pm from Honolulu live on ESPN), Independence Bowl-North Carolina vs. Missouri (Monday 5pm from Shreveport, LA live on ESPN2)

It’s bowl season. I’ll be pulling for Boise State, remembering the night I watched them play a bowl game in Glendale. It’s still to this day the greatest game I’ve ever attended greatest moment in human history.

But after the Broncos stomp the Sun Devils, there will still be good news in the land of Tempe. First, they’ll have a coach named Todd Graham who quit his last job via text message and then they’ll have this…
