If you find yourself stuck inside this weekend, these are the games you should be tuning into...


MLB Playoffs
Friday night’s game between the Angels and Yankees features two aces. John Lackey vs. CC Sabathia would be a great game during the regular season. If rain doesn’t wash this one away, it should be even better now that the American League pennant is on the line. (Friday, 7:57 ET on FOX)

Not to be outdone, Sunday’s match-up between the Dodgers and Phillies should be great too. Cliff Lee has been on the top of his post-season game, but he’ll face Hiroki Kuroda, who was the only Dodger pitcher to beat the Phils in last year’s NLCS. (Sunday, 8:07 ET on TBS)


New York Giants at New Orleans Saints
Eli Manning returns to his hometown of New Orleans to face the Saints in a battle of two undefeated teams that is not to be missed. The pressure will be on the Giants QB to play through the his foot injury, but he’ll need a solid day from his running backs because the Saints D is tough against the pass. Meanwhile, Drew Brees and Company could get a big day from Reggie Bush, who rushed for 126 yards against the G-Men in 2006. (Sunday, 1:00 ET on FOX)


NASCAR at Lowe’s Motor Speedway
Jimmie Johnson has five wins at Lowe’s Motor Speedway and a 12-point lead in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. While most of the contenders have fallen well out of contention, there is still time for either Mark Martin or Jeff Gordon to take over. They’ll have to keep on eye on Kasey Kahne. He may be way down in the standings, but he excels in Charlotte (11 career wins on the track). (Saturday, 7:00 ET on ABC)


Oklahoma Sooners vs. Texas Longhorns, USC Trojans at Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Sam Bradford and the Sooners face a must-win game against undefeated Texas, which has high hopes for a championship season under QB Colt McCoy. A few hours later, the Fighting Irish will try to knock out USC, something they haven’t been able to do in the last seven years. (Saturday, Oklahoma-Texas noon ET on ABC, USC-Notre Dame 3:30 ET on NBC)

I picked Georgia Tech over Virginia Tech. I can't beleive the Philadelphia Eagles lost to the Raiders, they stink. I'm probaly gonna get laughed at school tommarrow. I can't say anything to my friend bad about the patriots.

How could you have forgotten Georgia Tech vs. Virginia Tech? Both teams were fighting to keep their playoff hopes alive, and it was one heck of a game.

MAN, these blogs are SLOW!


ther fast

Does take the weekend off? I haven't seen anything new since Friday on the blogs, the photos or the videos.

TCU 44 Colorado State 6, Houston 44, Tulane 16. Ha ha Tulane!!!!!!!!

Are the top 100 fantasy football teams posted on the website yet?

Buckeyes Lose, but my college picks didn't turn out good I picked Oklahoma,ND,and Nebraska. On the plus side I picked Georgia Tech over Virginia Tech. Arkansa was so close I'm ready for Mississippi state and South Carolina to play Florida. I'm tired of Florida winning because everyone thinks they are the best Penn State can beat them.

PSU VS Minnasota and Ohio State VS Purdue what games

I know I said Michigan would beat Delaware State, but I was not expecting anything like a 63-6 ballgame.

Michigan beat DE ST. 63-6!


Miami, Purdue, Rice, Hawaii, San Diego, Colorado, West Kentucky, and Kentucky are all gonna lose.

Well don't hold your breath on the pick for Purdue because looking at the scores Purdue beat Ohio State, Miami Won, well...... Most of your picks are right.... I'll be going now...

The gators Are going to kill arkansas. I think the score will be 35-14

they won

I just changed my pick I think the sooners can upset the longhorns. How about you? I picked Notre Dame to beat USC and Georgia Tech over Virginia Tech.

The Yankee game should be really good.

I also don't like the Whining Irish, but through commericials of Minnesota at Penn State I'm going to check out that game on NBC. I can't wait for PSU to play OSU

I hate Notre Dame A LOT, but since the Buckeyes need to go up in the rankings to be better, It's not that I want Notre Dame to win, it's that I want USC to lose.

Those college football games will be close. What about PSU. Let's talk football you know it's homecoming for Penn State.

Penn state is a good team but they need to step up their game.
