Top 10 Baseball Distractions

October 23, 2012 | Glenn Clark

8. Glenn Clark’s 2012 KanJam Championship (Saturday 12pm Glenn Clark Compound)

It IS a private event, but I’m willing to entertain the idea of guests. If you want in, email me

You have to be at LEAST this good…

OR you have to be willing to supply grilled cheese sandwiches with some sort of neat homemade recipe. For example, a grilled cheese with ham, pimentos and homemade pickles is something I can get behind.

7. Soccer: Germany @ Team USA Women (Tuesday 7:30pm from East Hartford, CT live on NBC Sports Network); MLS-DC United @ Chicago Fire (Saturday 4pm from Bridgeview, IL live on NBC Sports Network); College Soccer: Lehigh @ Maryland (Tuesday 7:30pm Ludwig Field), Clemson @ Maryland (Saturday 7pm Ludwig Field)

I was going to post the video of the guy throwing the grenade on the pitch and the dude running into a goalie, but no one would have appreciated that MORE than they’d appreciate Will Ferrell hawking Old Milwaukee in Sweden. Just glorious.

6. Preseason NBA: Washington Wizards @ Miami Heat (Wednesday 8:30pm from Miami live on Comcast SportsNet), Washington Wizards @ San Antonio Spurs (Wednesday 8:30pm from San Antonio live on Comcast SportsNet)

Why is it that Deron Williams might play the Brooklyn Nets’ first (real) game with a Betty White tattoo?

You know, just read Yahoo! Sports’ post about it. I don’t have time for your questions.

5. High School Football: Perry Hall @ Franklin (Friday 7pm), Calvert Hall @ Archbishop Spalding (Friday 7pm), McDonogh @ Gilman (Saturday 1pm)

What did you do when you were in High School? I (believe it or not) was the Editor-in-Chief of the school newspaper and the Sales Manager for the Yearbook. I also just realized what a nerd that makes me sound like. Christ.

ANYWAY…here’s Austin Rehkow. All he’s going to be able to say he accomplished in high school was kicking a field goal a full FOUR YARDS longer than anything a NFL kicker has ever made. WORD.
