Top 10 Baseball Distractions

In much more significant hoops news, Milwaukee Bucks star Brandon Jennings apparently has a Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles tattoo…

Honestly, this is something I would get tattooed…anywhere…

3. NHL Playoffs: New York Rangers @ Washington Capitals Game 3 (Wednesday 7:30pm from Verizon Center live on NBC Sports Network), New York Rangers @ Washington Capitals Game 4 (Saturday 12:30pm from Verizon Center live on NBC), Washington Capitals @ New York Rangers Game 5 (Monday 7:30pm from New York live on NBC Sports Network)

To celebrate the NHL Playoffs, Wayne Gretzky’s daughter (her name is Paulina Gretzky for all of your Google image search needs) posted some new pictures to her Instagram account. Like this one…

More noteworthy from that picture? Vanilla Ice hangs out with the daughter of Ice Hockey’s greatest ever star?

2. College Lacrosse: CAA Tournament-Towson @ UMass (Wednesday 7pm from Amherst, MA live on AM1570 WNST.net); ECAC Championship Game (Friday 6pm from Denver live on ESPNU); Army @ Johns Hopkins (Saturday 2pm from Homewood Field live on ESPNU); America East Tournament-Albany @ UMBC (Wednesday 7:30pm UMBC Stadium); NCAA Tournament Selection Show (Sunday 9pm ESPNU)

Go Tigers! Down with UMass! Marcus Camby stinks!

Oh and also…go Greyhounds. Kick some ass in Denver.

That’s all I’ve got for now. Here’s Rob Guida’s game winner from Saturday’s JHU-Loyola game if you want.

1. Horse Racing: Kentucky Derby (Saturday 6:24pm from Louisville live on NBC), Kentucky Oaks (Friday 5:45pm from Louisville live on NBC Sports Network), “The Reality Check” live from Churchill Downs (Thursday & Friday 2pm on AM1570 WNST.net)

Make sure you know how to pronounce “Louisville” before you tune in.

There’s a chance I don’t come back.

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…

  1. Paul from Towson Says:

    Glenn, the picture of Gretzky’s daughter hurts, because I’m torn. I have three beautiful blonde haired, blue eyed girls ages 13, 10, and 7 and the thought that they one day could wind up on Top Ten baseball Distractions, scares the hell out of me. Good thing their Daddy carries a gun. Keep flexing, my friend.

    (Edit from Glenn: Oh my. Now even I’m concerned…)
