Top 10 Baseball Distractions

8. Pro Wrestling: TNA Bound For Glory (Sunday 8pm from San Diego live on Pay-Per-View)

TNA Wrestling is coming to Baltimore in November. Also coming to Baltimore in November? Mac and cheese casserole around Thanksgiving. Yep.

7. Soccer: CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying-Team USA @ Panama (Tuesday 9pm from Panama City, Panama live on beIN Sport); Australia @ Team USA Women (Sunday 1:30pm from San Antonio live on NBC); MLS: DC United @ Sporting Kansas City (Friday 8pm from Kansas City, KS live on NBC Sports Network); College Soccer: Marshall @ Maryland (Tuesday 7pm Ludwig Field), Wake Forest @ Maryland (Saturday 7pm Ludwig Field); New Hampshire @ UMBC (Saturday 7pm Retriever Soccer Park)

I am not a fan of Mexico making the World Cup, but I am ALWAYS a fan of the impossible.

6. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC 166-Cain Velasquez vs. Junior Dos Santos (Saturday 10pm from Houston live on Pay-Per-View); Bellator MMA (Friday 9pm from Cedar Rapids, IA live on SpikeTV)

I don’t actually have a ton of thoughts about Saturday night’s Heavyweight clash, but I actually do have a lot to say about the wardrobe department they’re employing over at the show “The Big Bang Theory”.

Stellar work, gang.

5. NHL: New York Rangers @ Washington Capitals (Wednesday 8pm from Verizon Center live on NBC Sports Network), Columbus Blue Jackets @ Washington Capitals (Saturday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet)

Elsewhere in the NHL, the Ducks recently had a throwback night and mother of God how do I get my hands on one of these retro unis?

From the “things I definitely do not want” category, Sharks defenseman Jason Demers recently chose to wear this…voluntarily?
