Top 10 Baseball Distractions

September 17, 2013 | Glenn Clark

4. Mixed Martial Arts: UFC 165-Jon “Bones” Jones vs. Alexander Gustafson (Saturday 10pm from Toronto live on Pay-Per-View); Bellator MMA (Friday 9pm from Phoenix live on SpikeTV)

I assume Jon Jones will win with ease as long as he doesn’t break anything. This remains one of my favorite images of 2013.

3. NHL: Baltimore Hockey Classic-Boston Bruins vs. Washington Capitals (Tuesday 7pm from Baltimore Arena live on Comcast SportsNet), Chicago Blackhawks @ Washington Capitals (Friday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet/NHL Network), Washington Capitals @ Boston Bruins (Monday 7pm from Boston live on NHL Network)

I’m just going to go ahead and assume the Baltimore game will be a bit better attended than the first preseason game for the Florida Panthers…

I can only assume this made for the world’s saddest “Kiss Cam.”

2. College Football: West Virginia @ Maryland (Saturday 3:30pm from M&T Bank Stadium live on ESPNU), Towson @ North Carolina Central (Saturday 2pm from Durham live on Towson Sports Network); Arizona State @ Stanford (Saturday 7pm from Palo Alto, CA live on FOX), Michigan State @ Notre Dame (Saturday 3:30pm from South Bend, IN live on NBC)

Let’s start practicing this now.

Line 1-“Go Back”
Line 2-“Go Back”
Line 3-“Go Back Into the Woods!”

And also for those of you headed downtown Saturday…

1. NFL: Houston Texans @ Baltimore Ravens (Sunday 1pm from M&T Bank Stadium live on CBS); “The Bryant McKinnie Show” poured by Pinnacle Vodka with special guest Marlon Brown (Wednesday 7pm from David’s 1st and 10 Hampden airs Thursday 2pm on AM1570

It will be great to have another opportunity to honor this fella…

And won’t be too bad to see this fella either.

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
