Top 10 Baseball Distractions

August 21, 2012 | Glenn Clark

8. Kickball: Tennessee Orange Kickball Playoffs (Thursday 6:30pm Cedar Lane Park Bel Air)

The good news? Glenn Clark comes into the playoffs off a 3-3 performance last week. The bad news? My fat ass couldn’t stop at second and ran into the first out of the 7th inning after hit number three to effectively kill our last ditch rally before it ever got started.

Also…I am completely incapable of doing anything like this if my team needs me…

7. Pro Wrestling: MCW Aggravated Assault (Saturday 6:30pm New Green Room Dundalk)

The alumni of Maryland Championship Wrestling are a veritable who’s who from the world of wrestling. Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy….ahh screw it here’s the part where I post a picture of Mickie James and then just sort of move on…


6. Auto Racing: NASCAR IRWIN Tools Night Race (Saturday 7pm from Bristol, TN live on ABC); IndyCar Series GoPro Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma (Sunday 4:30pm from Sonoma, CA live on NBC Sports Network)

Here’s an incredibly boring clip of Danica Patrick being knocked out of last week’s Nationwide Series race after running over a shoe that had been thrown onto the course by a fan that presumably is also pissed Augusta National finally decided to allow women in.

Look man, I told you the video was boring as hell. I guess you probably would have already known that when you saw that the post was about NASCAR. I can only comment on what I have to work with. I apologize.

5. College Football: Joe Posnanski “Paterno” available in stores, on Kindle/Nook (Tuesday)

I don’t have any interest in talking about Joe Paterno, Joe Posnanski, Jerry Sandusky or anything else Penn State related at this point.

So instead I think I’ll try to make an impossible transition. Comedian Jeffrey Ross dressed as Paterno at the recent Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne…Towson alum Amy Schumer also performed at the roast…Schumer recently debuted her special “Mostly Sex Stuff” on CC and I’d like to share a clip here…

Judge me all you want. That was HILARIOUS.
