Top 10 Baseball Distractions

January 07, 2013 | Glenn Clark

4. NBA: Atlanta Hawks @ Washington Wizards (Saturday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Orlando Magic @ Washington Wizards (Monday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet)

This wasn’t a bad effort from a Los Angeles Lakers fan…

And this from Kobe Bryant & Dwight Howard was pretty funny too…

You know what’s funniest of all? The Lakers.

3. Tennis: Australian Open Opening Round (Sunday 6:30pm live on ESPN2 Monday 7pm live on Tennis Channel 9pm live on ESPN2. All tennis from Melbourne, AUS)

Thank freaking God it’s time for an actual sports season to begin.

Who wants to grill some kangaroo with me to celebrate Australia Day this year?????

That MIGHT look good. I can’t tell.

2. College Basketball: Florida State @ Maryland (Wednesday 8pm from Comcast Center live on ACC Network-WNUV 54 locally), Maryland @ Miami (Sunday 8pm from Coral Gables, FL live on ESPNU); William & Mary @ Towson (Wednesday 7pm from Towson Center live on, Northeastern @ Towson (Saturday 12pm from Towson Center live on; New Hampshire @ UMBC (Wednesday 7pm RAC Arena); Fairfield @ Loyola (Friday 7pm from Reitz Arena live on ESPNU); South Carolina State @ Morgan State (Saturday 4pm Hill Field House); Savannah State @ Coppin State (Saturday 4pm Coppin State Physical Education Complex)

But no matter what any of you do this week, it won’t be better than what a young lady from Canisius accomplished last week (or the announcer who called the play)…

Flipping excellent.

1. NFL Playoffs: AFC Divisional Round Baltimore Ravens @ Denver Broncos (Saturday 4:30pm from Denver live on CBS)

And if for some reason it ends here, how about one more “Thank You Ray”?

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
