What to Watch: Weekend Edition

FRIDAY

8pm ET - NBC - Penguins @ Red Wings - Did Hossa make the right decision in switching from the Penguins to the Wings?

Non-sports pick - 8pm - TNT - The Pursuit of Happyness - I know some people didn't see this because of the misspelled title but if you watch the movie it has its purpose.


SATURDAY
1pm - CBS - College Track and Field Championships - Here's their website. It even has a link to watch the stuff live on Friday and Saturday.

2pm - ESPN - College World Series: Arkansas vs. Cal State Fullerton - Cal State Fullerton has been an offensive juggernaut in the postseason. Only once in their five playoff games have they failed to score double digits.

3pm - CBS - PGA: St. Jude Classic, third round - Take a look at the leaderboard (it's better than staring at Daly's pants).

4pm - Fox - Mets @ Yankees

OR Cardinals @ Indians

OR White Sox @ Brewers

7pm - ESPN - College World Series: Virginia vs. LSU - UVA will start freshman Danny Hultzen who was 9-1 with a 2.09 ERA this season.

Non-sports pick - 5pm - FX - A Few Good Men - Because you might not get to see Jack back in LA until next year...


SUNDAY

7pm - ESPN2 - College World Series: Southern Mississippi vs. Texas - Southern Miss. is the lowest ranked seed and Texas is one of the most historic college baseball programs ever. But hey, Fresno State was able to pull off the Cinderella story last year.

8pm - ESPN - Cardinals @ Indians - The Cardinals send their ace Chris Carpenter to the mound. Carpenter is 4-0 with a 1.23 ERA.

8pm - ABC - Lakers @ Magic - Lakers can close it out and make the short trip to Disney World or the Magic can force the series back to LA.
