Top 10 Baseball Distractions

December 27, 2011 | Glenn Clark

8. Harlem Globetrotters (Friday 2pm & 7pm 1st Mariner Arena)

I’ve seen a lot of things in my day. None of them were as awesome as the Globetrotters partnering up with the guys from Dude Perfect to do THIS…


Oh and if I’m going to pay money to see the Trotters this week, I better get to see Gilligan & The Skipper take the floor…

7. Pro Wrestling: WWE Raw Holiday Tour (Thursday 7pm Verizon Center)

I just realized we’re all the way up to Number 7 and I haven’t yet posted a picture of an attractive young lady. Is this Top10BD or is this “The Morning Reaction”?

Here’s Eve Torres. Cheers.

6. NBA: Washington Wizards @ Atlanta Hawks (Wednesday 7:30pm from Atlanta live on Comcast SportsNet), Washington Wizards @ Milwaukee Bucks (Friday 8:30pm from Milwaukee live on Comcast SportsNet PLUS), Boston Celtics @ Washington Wizards (Sunday 6pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet/NBA TV), Washington Wizards @ Boston Celtics (Monday 7:30pm from Boston live on Comcast SportsNet)

The NBA came back on Christmas. I’m surprised ESPN and those types weren’t talking about it.

Lost in the hype of Opening Day was a highlight that would have been roof raising had it 1-happened at the Miami Heat’s home arena 2-Happened in front of a Miami crowd that was shipped in from a city that cared about sports.

Here’s the Mario Chalmers/LeBron James/Dwyane Wade….ummm….you give it a name…

5. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC 141 Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem (Friday 10pm from Las Vegas live on Pay-Per-View)

The former Strikeforce champ is trying to join a short list of men who have defeated Lesnar. The list is short, but the company is impressive.

Frank Mir. Cain Velasquez. BILL GOLDBERG…

Also, if it’s a UFC event you can be sure I’ll be hanging out at Jimmy’s Famous Seafood in Dundalk…because those guys are AWESOME. I was there last week for their Holiday Party, which was pretty cool…
