Top 10 Baseball Distractions

April 09, 2013 | Glenn Clark

8. Soccer: Team USA @ Netherlands (Tuesday 1pm from The Hague, Netherlands live on; MLS: New York Red Bulls @ DC United (Saturday 7pm RFK Stadium)

Elsewhere in soccer, this is something…

7. Auto Racing: NASCAR NRA 500 (Saturday 7:30pm from Ft. Worth, TX live on FOX)

I couldn’t possibly have less to say about this week’s NASCAR race. If I was in Ft. Worth, I’d probably go to Bonnell’s because…yeah…


6. NBA: Washington Wizards @ New York Knicks (Tuesday 7:30pm from New York live on Comcast SportsNet), Miami Heat @ Washington Wizards (Wednesday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Philadelphia 76ers @ Washington Wizards (Friday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Washington Wizards @ Brooklyn Nets (Monday 7:30pm from Brooklyn, NY live on Comcast SportsNet)

The Wizards aren’t interesting or relevant, but they once were-winning the 1978 NBA Championship. The team decided to celebrate the anniversary this past weekend, which lead to an interesting story about the Larry O’Brien Trophy from Dave Sheinin in the Washington Post…

Neat. Or at least as neat as it gets when you’re dealing with the Washington Wizards.

5. Mixed Martial Arts: Shogun Fights VIII (Saturday 7pm First Mariner Arena); UFC The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale-Urijah Faber vs. Scott Jorgensen (Saturday 9pm from Las Vegas live on FX)

Former UFC champ Brock Lesnar lost to Triple H at WrestleMania Sunday night. This is now probably true.
