Top 10 Baseball Distractions

February 21, 2012 | Glenn Clark


8. Pro Wrestling: MCW Anniversary 2012 (Saturday 7:30pm New Green Room Dundalk); “The Epic Journey of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson” available on DVD/Blu-Ray (Tuesday)

I wonder if The Rock DVD will include that time when he appeared on Family Guy…

Family Guy jumped the shark a long time ago, but there’s no way you can possibly tell me that wasn’t funny.

No way.

7. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC 144-Frankie Edgar vs. Benson Henderson (Saturday 10pm from Tokyo on Pay-Per-View)

I’ve been going with nothing but YouTube clips thus far, so it’s time to mix it up with something crazy for me…a picture of an attractive gal.

I feel as though perhaps I should consider a boycott of UFC after the recent news that they fired ring girl Chandella Powell after discovering she had done softcore porn work nearly ten years ago.

She’s a freaking RING GIRL. Shouldn’t this have put her in line for a promotion???

6. Golf: World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship (Wednesday 12pm Thursday & Friday 2pm Saturday 12pm Sunday 9am live on Golf Channel Saturday & Sunday 2pm live on NBC. All golf from Marana, AZ); PGA Tour Mayakoba Golf Classic (Thursday-Saturday 6:30pm Sunday 7pm from Riviera Maya, Mexico on Golf Channel); LPGA Tour HSBC Women’s Champions 2012 (Thursday & Friday 9:30am Saturday & Sunday 2pm from Singapore on Golf Channel)

I’m not a golfer, but I get VERY excited for the WGC Match Play event. Why? I freaking LOVE an opportunity to fill out a bracket…

By the way, Ernie Els is a 16 seed in this event. A 16 seed. Are they aware he used to be Ernie Els???

5. College Lacrosse: Towson @ Loyola (Saturday 1pm from Ridley Athletic Complex on AM1570; Delaware @ Johns Hopkins (Tuesday 5pm from Homewood Field on ESPNU), Siena @ Johns Hopkins (Saturday 3pm from Homewood Field on ESPNU); Maryland @ Georgetown (Friday 7pm Multi-Sport Field); North Carolina @ Navy (Saturday 12pm Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium); Hampden-Sydney @ Stevenson (Saturday 1pm Mustang Stadium)

Enjoy seeing the Terps and the Hoyas square off, as Kevin Anderson has decided you won’t be seeing it again soon…unless G’town decides to get the Terrapins back on the men’s basketball schedule.

And since Johnny Rhodes is set to be honored Tuesday night in College Park, let’s revisit a game that was one of the greatest in his tenure…

The hell with them.

    G.C. What’s with the pic of the NASCAR & no story? I for one & there are thousands like me in the area who are race fans. I like the stocks, F-1 & open wheel racing but your station & a few others never give props to racing. Is this because you are more ignorant & less knowledgable than the peope who occasionaly watch the sport you accuse or is it you just don’t care for the sport? I will take a boring turn left & race @ 150mph any day over an Orioles game, a Capitals, Wizards gane anyday of the wk or year. There is a lot of calculating that takes place in NASCAR racing that would appear banal to the occasional viewer but other than the “Big wreck” which most casual fans tune in for, It is a sport that requires brains, skill, stamina & committment. This is surely something I haven’t seen lately from an Orioles team, Crapitals or Gizzards. P.S. On any given day, a NASCAR or F-1 race will outdraw any football, baseball game in the country. Crowds of 100k plus are not uncommon. The Daytona 500 has over 250k alone.

    NASCAR sucks.

    Glenn, Danica Patrick could lose every race for the rest of her life and as long as she wears bikinis…she will always be a winner in my book. Keep up the great work, my friend. Keep flexing.
