What To Watch: Weekend Edition

FRIDAY

8am ET - ESPN2 - Lithuania vs. Team USA
- Lithuania has the Nuggets Linas Kleiza and the Wizards Darius Songaila. Lithuania might test Team USA with their outside shooting.

9pm - ESPN - X Games - BMX Big Air Final, Moto X Step Up Final. Never been that into Step Up. I think it's the lamest X Games event.

Non-sports pick - 11:30pm - NBC - Tonight Show - Bill Cosby is on. I really hope he raps:

SATURDAY

1pm - CBS - PGA: WGC Bridgestone Invitational - Third Round - Check out the leaderboard.

3pm - NBC - US Senior Open Championship: Third Round - I really hope Fred Funk can pull it off. Just love that name.

3pm - ABC - X Games - Moto X Speed & Style, BMX Superpark Final, Men's Moto X Racing Final, Women's Moto X Racing Final. BMX Superpark Final is awesome.

3:30pm - Fox - Angels @ Yankees
- I'm pulling for Mussina to get his 14th victory. Shooting for 19 wins!

7pm - ESPN2 - X Games - SuperMoto Final, BMX Vert Final, Skate Vert Final. Big fan of the vert.

9pm - ESPN - X Games - Skate Vert Final, Moto X Freestyle Final. There's going to be some sick tricks in Moto X Freestyle.

Non-sports pick - ALL DAY - TCM - Charlie Chaplin Marathon

SUNDAY

1pm - CBS - PGA: WGC Bridgestone Invitational - Final Round - Yeah, it's not a major but the winner still gets a cool $8 mil.

1pm - ABC - LPGA: British Open - Final Round - Seems like the best players are either veterans or young ones.

2pm - ESPN - NASCAR: Pennsylvania 500
- Kiefer Sutherland gets to say "Start your engines". Hey, as long as they keep him away from the cars.

3pm - NBC - US Senior Open Championship: Final Round
- FUNK!

3pm - ABC - X Games - Rally Car Racing Final, Skateboard Superpark Final. I don't get how they decide what events happen when. You would think the best stuff would be at the end, but is Rally Car Racing really that popular?

5pm - ESPN2 - Rogers Cup: Final
- Jelena Jankovic looks to be the front-runner.

7pm - ESPN2 - Russia vs. Team USA - (Unless you want to watch it live at 3am) AK-47! That makes three Jazz players between the two teams.

8pm - ESPN - Phillies @ Cardinals - Brett Myers pitched 7 scoreless innings last start, but it was against the Nationals. The Cards need to make a surge to keep up with the red-hot Cubs.

8pm - NBC - INDIANAPOLIS COLTS vs. WASHINGTON REDSKINS - FOOTBALL PEOPLE! FOOTBALLLLLLLLLL!!!!! No non-sports pick because football is back!
