What To Watch: Weekend Edition

by Robbie Gillies

SATURDAY



11:50am - ESPN2 - Euro 2008: Spain vs. Sweden
- The winner is in sole possession of first in Group D. More in depth analysis here.

2pm - ESPN - College World Series: Florida State vs. Stanford (Gm 1) - FSU's coach, Mike Martin is the best college baseball coach never to win the title.

2:30pm - ESPN2 - Euro 2008: Greece vs. Russia
- These two are at the bottom of Group D. The loser is bounced from the tournament. Want more? OK.

4pm - NBC - US Open: 3rd Round - Can Tiger continue his charge or will Appleby be feeling good in the neighborhood...

4pm - CBS - College Track & Field Championships - For more info check out NCAA's website for a list of events for Saturday.

5pm - ESPN2 - NASCAR: Meijer 300 Qualifying - I'll put this in here, but I'm not writing anything about it. It's only a qualifier.

7pm - ESPN - College World Series: Georgia vs. Miami - Georgia is making their fourth trip to the Series this decade. Miami will be headed to Omaha for the 11th time in coach Jim Morris's 15-year tenure.

Non-sports pick - 8:05pm - USA - Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - I was hoping I could do all three Indy flicks in a row. Last Crusade is my favorite. One summer I probably watched that movie 20 times in my parents basement. I think this might have been what inspired me to become a blogger.

 

SUNDAY

2pm - ESPN - College World Series: Fresno State vs. Rice - I hope Rice ALSO throws a fake-fight to try and get Fresno State off their game.

2:30pm - ESPN Classic - Euro 2008: Czech Republic vs. Turkey - The winner of this game should get 2nd in Group A, assuming Portugal takes care of business against Switzerland.

2:30pm - ESPN2 - Euro 2008: Portugal vs. Switzerland - Portugal is looking to improve to 3-0 in Group A.

3pm - NBC - US Open: Final Round - Insert something about how things have changed from the 2nd round to the 3rd round and what to expect from the Final round...

5pm - ESPN2 - 2010 World Cup Qualifier: Barbados vs. United States
- Things "we" can expect from this match.

7pm - ESPN2 - College World Series: LSU vs. North Carolina
- LSU had a surprisingly successful season this year, but they now face the number two national seed in UNC.

8pm - ESPN - Braves @ Angels - The Braves have been dreadful away from Turner Field. They have a road record of 8-24. The Angels' Joe Saunders will look to add to the Braves road woes and pick up his 10th win of the season.

9pm - ABC - Celtics @ Lakers - Hoping it's not the last NBA game of the season.

Non-sports pick - NBC - SNL: Best Of Mike Myers
- Of course it's to promote The Love Guru, but I look at it at a way to remember that he was once really funny.
