Top 10 Baseball Distractions

8. PBR Baltimore Invitational (Friday & Saturday 1st Mariner Arena)

The Pro Bull Riders are coming to town and no one has any idea what they do.

I searched YouTube for “Bullriding Bloopers” but was unable to find anything that was more funny than tragic. So instead I decided to polish this piece up with a scene from Bull Durham. I’m pretty sure it’s better…

7. Lingerie Football League: Lingerie Bowl-Philadelphia Passion vs. Los Angeles Temptation (Sunday 4pm from Las Vegas live on MTV2)

And we have late breaking news from the LFL this week. Cue the ABC News music…

Late breaking LFL news into the WNST newsroom. Philly’s Marirose Roach MAY have suffered a concussion and COULD be out for the Lingerie Bowl. More information as it is available…

By the way, someone told me the Lingerie games weren’t scripted-but I know that’s not right.

6. Golf: PGA Tour Waste Management Phoenix Open (Thursday & Friday 4pm live on Golf Channel, Saturday & Sunday 3pm live on CBS. All golf from Scottsdale, AZ)

The Waste Management Open. Banner time for PGA Tour advertisers, eh?

In all seriousness, I’ve attended the Phoenix Open before-it’s ABSOLUTELY the only event that could ever make golf tournament attendance tolerable. For example, here’s their reaction to a Tiger Woods hole-in-one in 1997…

Coincidentally, 1997 was about the last time Tiger Woods hit a decent golf shot, was it not?

5. NBA: Washington Wizards @ Orlando Magic (Wednesday 7pm from Orlando live on Comcast SportsNet), Washington Wizards @ Toronto Raptors (Friday 7pm from Toronto live on Comcast SportsNet), Los Angeles Clippers @ Washington Wizards (Saturday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Toronto Raptors @ Washington Wizards (Monday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet)

I mean, I could sit here and tell you about the Wizards (actually I can’t. I have no idea what they’re doing.), or we could all watch the Blake Griffin dunk again.

What say you, Kendrick Perkins?
