Top 10 Baseball Distractions

4. Pro Wrestling: WWE Elimination Chamber (Sunday 8pm from Milwaukee live on Pay-Per-View)

I don’t care what else happens Sunday night as long as the event ends the same way it did the last time Chris Jericho participated in an Elimination Chamber match…

I hope you understand how much better he is than everyone else.

3. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC on FUEL TV-Diego Sanchez vs. Jake Ellenberger (Wednesday 8pm from Omaha live on FUEL TV); UFC Undisputed 3 available on PS3/XBox 360 (Tuesday)

I sorta had a plan to use this space to make fun of Omaha. Then I remembered who was from Omaha…

I know you had absolutely nothing to do with Team USA’s win over Switzerland in the Davis Cup, A-Rod. But I just don’t know how to quit you.

2. College Basketball: Boston College @ Maryland (Thursday 9pm from Comcast Center live on ACC Network-WNUV 54 in Charm City), Maryland @ Virginia (Saturday 1pm from Charlottesville live on ACC Network-WNUV 54 in Charm City); Towson @ Northeastern (Tuesday 7pm from Boston live on AM1570 WNST.net), Sears Bracketbuster Towson @ New Hampshire (Saturday 3pm from Durham, NH live on AM1570 WNST.net); Sears Bracketbuster Boston University @ Loyola (Sunday 12pm Reitz Arena); Howard @ Coppin State (Saturday 4pm Coppin State Physical Education Complex); Sears Bracketbuster Liberty @ Morgan State (Saturday 1pm Hill Field House)

I can’t believe they didn’t invite any of the Pac 12 teams to the BrackBusters this year!

There was a bit of awkwardness this weekend between Mark Turgeon and Terrell Stoglin based on some things the Terrapins guard said on Twitter.

Coincidentally, there was absolutely no awkwardness at all when Jessica Burciaga posted this picture of herself on Twitter…

1. College Lacrosse: Towson @ Johns Hopkins (Friday 5pm from Homewood Field live on AM1570 WNST.net/ESPNU); Hartford @ Maryland (Saturday 1pm Byrd Stadium); Delaware @ Loyola (Saturday 1pm Ridley Athletic Complex); Robert Morris @ UMBC (Saturday 1pm UMBC Stadium); Navy @ Jacksonville (Saturday 4pm from Jacksonville live on NBC Sports Network); Haverford @ Stevenson (Saturday 7pm Mustang Stadium)

I’m really excited for the full official first week of lax season, even if it cuts a bit into Friday’s edition of “The Reality Check.”

And with lacrosse officially back, I think it’s time we retire this video from last year’s Gonzaga (DC)-Good Counsel game. It was amazing, but this is the last time…

What you don’t see in the video is that Stefon Diggs actually caught the ball in the cage and ran it back for a touchdown.

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…

    Why are you wearing a glove on your left hand in that Indy picture?
