Weekend Baseball: What to Watch

This weekend has its share of watchable match-ups. The Red Sox play the Blue Jays and the Yankees face the Indians, with first place in the AL East pretty much up for grabs. The AL West will keep it in the division, with Angels vs. Mariners and A’s vs. Rangers. And the Mets try to extend their one-game NL East lead against a Marlins team looking to recapture their early season success.

But which games are the ultimate in watch-ability? To find that out, you’ll have to click MORE

In the spring of 2003 I spoke with an NBA scout about prospects who would be taken in that year's draft. We talked about some guy named LeBron, some guy named Carmelo, and a bunch of other players.

Then I asked the scout to tell me one sleeper in the Draft, a guy whom no one was talking about but would turn out to be a good pick. The scout named a little-known point guard from the University of Alabama: Mo Williams.

E3 2009: Gentlemen! Start! Your! Engines!

Right now, even as you read this, hundreds of flat screen HDTVs—each one practically the size of a squash court—are being wired up inside the glass and steel monolith known as the Los Angeles Convention Center in downtown L.A. (Which is, mind you, only half a block away from the Staples Center, where the Lakers will continue their playoff run. Perhaps the Sports Gamer will enjoy a Kobe sighting or two next week. Wouldn't that be nice?)
I'll be at the Electronic Entertainment Expo—a.k.a. E3—starting Monday June 1 for what promises to be a return-to-form for the show.

Come August 13 at 11:45 p.m., you can find hundreds of people lined up outside their local video game store, anxiously waiting for the store manager to open the doors when the clock ticks midnight and Madden NFL 10 is released.

At that point, the lines will quickly diminish and all of the Madden connoisseurs will hurry home to play the new game for the first time. This sensation is known throughout Madden Nation as “Midnight Madness.”

While the release date seems pretty far off right now, us Madden fans have something to hold us off until then: the Madden 10 player ratings. Let’s take a look…

Syracuse's Kenny Nims Rises to the Occasion

On Monday, more than 40,000 fans packed into Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, to watch the biggest lacrosse game of the season. It was the 2009 NCAA National Lacrosse Championship, between the fifth-ranked Cornell and second-ranked Syracuse.

It was by far the most exciting lacrosse game I’ve ever seen. Through all of the perfectly executed plays and amazing saves, I kept thinking about the college lacrosse recruiters who assembled these teams. You know, the ones giving themselves a huge pat on the back.

A few years ago, back in 2004, Syracuse had managed to recruit three of the best high school lacrosse players in the country. All three, now seniors, had proven their talent throughout the years. But on this past Memorial Day, one player in particular, senior attackman Kenny Nims, made those recruiters very happy.
