The week ahead, to make you nostalgic for the week behind


The week ahead, to make you nostalgic for the week behind TODAY

So little to choose from, and so much time. The Cable Watch enters Day 7, Vince Young tries to rehabilitate himself further against the 49ers, NASCAR enters its final tedious three weeks with the Dickies 500 Jimmie Johnson won the damned thing already, for God's sake, the Warriors play the Kings in the Northern California Is Utterly Doomed Cup, and Chelsea faces Man-U. There are also two MLS playoff matches, but really, why would you bother at this point?

The Warriors host Minnesota, and Cal opens its Basketball schedule at home against Murray State. Immediately thereafter, the Warriors face Cal and Minny meets Murray. Also, Liverpool faces Birmingham for you folks who got tired of waiting for Game 8 of the World Series.

TUESDAY MAC Week starts - a Mid-American Conference game every weekday night, for those of you who think jail is too lenient a sentence for repeat offenders. Also, the Sharks entertain read: beat the hell out of Nashville, and Oklahoma City plays the Kings in Sacramento for no apparent reason.

WEDNESDAY It's Hump Day, which means you'd rather wake up and discover that you developed a hump in your back overnight than even consider watching Warriors at Indiana. Also, Detroit plays the Fightin' Montgomerys.

THURSDAY Mike Singletary plays his old team, the Chicago Bears, in a night game. The rest of the 49ers were promised some playing time when he finishes. Also, Dallas, which used to have really cool uniforms if nothing else, plays the Sharks. Bonus: If the game starts to drag, Jody Shelley will fight teammate Brad Staubitz, and the winner then takes on a live bear at the start of the next home stand.

FRIDAY College Basketball is upon us, which allows us to overlook Warriors at Knicks first team to 145 gets to play the fourth quarter!. Cal Poly is at USF, New Mexico State is at St. Mary's, Santa Clara is at Cal State Bakersfield, Stanford is at USD, UOP sorry, Pacific is at Pepperdine, Idaho State plays the St. Mary's women, Fullerton plays the San Jose State women, and the Stanford women are at Old Dominion.

SATURDAY If you like people hitting each other, Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto are at it in Las Vegas. If you hate defense, the Warriors are at Milwaukee. If you love defense, the Sharks are in St. Louis. And if you have no idea at all what you like, the Redwoods host Las Vegas in a fight for both second place and third place from the bottom in the UFL. Kind of makes you wish you had other choices, doesn't it?


Play Basketball Hot Streak and win prizes!
