Top 10 Baseball Distractions

January 31, 2012 | Glenn Clark

4. NHL: Washington Capitals @ Tampa Bay Lightning (Tuesday 7:30pm from Tampa live on NBC Sports Network), Washington Capitals @ Florida Panthers (Wednesday 8pm from Sunrise, FL live on Comcast SportsNet PLUS), Washington Capitals @ Montreal Canadiens (Saturday 2pm from Montreal live on Comcast SportsNet), Boston Bruins @ Washington Capitals (Sunday 2pm from Verizon Center live on NBC)

We could talk about the NHL All-Star Game; but the ratings show that about as many people watched that as listen to my radio show every day.

Instead, here’s video of the roof at Pittsburgh Civic Arena collapsing…

It’s a shame they couldn’t have taken the rest of the city with them, isn’t it?

3. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC 143-Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit (Saturday 10pm from Las Vegas live on Pay-Per-View)

I was combing through recent MMA action for something to post here, and I came up with nothing. So instead I decided to post this picture of Team USA soccer star Alex Morgan. It’s Tuesday and I’m really tired gang….

2. College Basketball: Maryland @ Miami (Wednesday 8pm from Coral Gables, FL live on ACC Network-WNUV 54 in Charm City), North Carolina @ Maryland (Saturday 4pm from Comcast Center live on ESPN); Towson @ Hofstra (Wednesday 7pm from Hempstead, NY live on AM1570, Drexel @ Towson (Saturday 7pm from Towson Center live on AM1570; Maine @ UMBC (Saturday 3:30pm RAC Arena); Rider @ Loyola (Friday 7pm from Reitz Arena live on ESPNU); Coppin State @ Morgan State (Saturday 4pm Hill Field House), Howard @ Morgan State (Monday 7:30pm Hill Field House)

Just sit back for a few minutes and enjoy this, ladies and gentlemen.

1. NFL: Super Bowl XLVI-New York Giants vs. New England Patriots (Sunday 6:30pm from Indianapolis live on NBC); NFL Honors (Saturday 9pm from Indy on NBC); Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2012 Selection Show (Sunday 7pm from Indianapolis live on NFL Network)

This is a repeat. No really, I’ve seen this one. Eli Manning avoids a sack, David Tyree makes a great catch, Giants win, Pats’ undefeated season ruined.

Oh and of course the other thing we already know about the game…Indianapolis sucks.

Hugs and kisses.

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
