Events to Watch

Here are a few things that I will be watching for this week. I won't write it for everyday, but I do start every morning with American Morning on CNN. (They should pay me for an ad that good)

Monday, August 14
NBA Hardwood Classics- 6:30PM NBAtv
USA vs. Cuba
Any time you get a chance to watch the original Dream Team, take it. If you are a fan of basketball or not, watch this game, see why basketball is such a great sport. Please watch this game.

Monday Night Football- 7 PM ESPN
Raiders at Vikings
Coverage starts at 7pm. Normally I would never, ever promote the watching of preseason football, but it will be interesting to see what ESPN's coverage will look like.

WEEDS- 10PM Showtime
Excellent show on Showtime. Season 2 Premiere.

Tuesday, August 15
Under-21 International Football- 3PM FSC
England vs. Moldova
I know, it doesn't look like the most interesting game in the world, but it will allow a good look at Cup bust Walcott. It's also fun to take a look at the future of football.

Mets at Phillies-7pm SNY
Pedro's pitching, and he's 15 k's away from 3,000. He probably won't get it here, but it is worth a watch anyways.

Wednesday, August 16
International Friendly Football- 3PM FSC
England vs. Greece
First game of the Steve McClaren era, also the first game without Becks. Definitely worth a watch. Congrats to England captain John Terry.

Thursday, August 17
NFL Preseason- 8PM NFL Network (NBC-TV Local)
Chiefs at Giants
Eli and co. get game number 2 of the preseason.

Friday, August 18
Yankees at Red Sox- 1PM ESPN
Yankees at Red Sox- 8PM WWOR
You know what this is about, they play 5 times from Friday to Monday. That is a gauntlet of baseball.

Saturday, August 19
World Basketball Championships-1AM ESPN2
USA vs. Puerto Rico
It starts at 1am, so this is assuming I am awake and home. But if those two things are happening I would love to tune into this game. Last time these teams met up, USA got lit up by Carlos Arroyo.

English Premier League- 10AM-4PM FSC
Newcastle at Wigan
Bolton at Tottenham
Reading at Middlesborough
Opening day of English football. I am way too excited for this.

MLS- 7:30 PM FSC
Columbus at New York
First MLS game for Bruce Arena as Red Bull coach. Should be interesting. I'm making a more concerted effort towards MLS. I feel its snobbish of me to look away from our own domestic league.

Sunday, August 20
Manchester City at Chelsea
Oh yeahh, Stamford Bridge opener. This is when it counts, all that time and money...please don't fail.

Yankees at Red Sox- 8PM ESPN
