Top 10 Baseball Distractions

October 09, 2012 | Glenn Clark

4. Soccer: FIFA World Cup Qualifying-Team USA @ Antigua & Barbuda (Friday 7pm from North Sound, Antigua live on beIN Sport); College Soccer: Rutgers @ Maryland (Tuesday 7:30pm Ludwig Field), Maryland @ Duke (Friday 7pm from Durham, NC live on Comcast SportsNet); Boston University @ UMBC (Saturday 3pm Retriever Soccer Park)

In honor of David Koechner’s appearance on “The Mobtown Sports Beat” Tuesday, well call this the “Double Whammy.” You had no idea Antigua & Barbuda was actually a place, you had even less knowledge that beIN Sport was a network.


Now here’s Jackson Martinez (FC Porto) doing something I can’t…

3. College Basketball: Maryland Madness (Friday 6pm Comcast Center); Towson University “Yell The Madness” (Friday 7:15pm Towson Center)

I’m glad I saw Gary Williams at the Orioles game Sunday night, because it will be awfully tough to get through the first Gary Williams-less “Madness” in over two decades Friday night.

I visited The Louvre over the summer. I looked everywhere and they didn’t have this picture. What a waste of a trip to Paris…

2. College Football: Maryland @ Virginia (Saturday 3pm from Charlottesville, VA live on Comcast SportsNet); Navy @ Central Michigan (Friday 8pm from Mount Pleasant, MI live on ESPN2); Maine @ Towson (Saturday 7pm from Unitas Stadium live on; North Carolina Central @ Morgan State (Saturday 1pm Hughes Stadium); Texas vs. Oklahoma (Saturday 12pm from Dallas live on ABC); South Carolina @ LSU (Saturday 8pm from Baton Rouge, LA live on ESPN)

Bryan Powell sent me this video, it was shown to Navy players before their game last Saturday against Air Force. After watching it, I’m debating whether or not I should enlist. Does Uncle Sam have a need for a doughy afternoon sports DJ?

And also, can we get Mr. Radcliffe to offer Randy Edsall some math lessons before the Terps invade Scott Stadium?

1. NFL: Dallas Cowboys @ Baltimore Ravens (Sunday 1pm from M&T Bank Stadium live on FOX)

I have a very soft spot in my heart for the words “Ravens” and “Cowboys” together.

My absolute favorite regular season game EVER in Ravens history. (Okay, maybe the game in Pittsburgh last year now rivals, but…)

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
