Reporting Chris “Mac” McClain
It is a diverse sports weekend and if you are lucky enough to head out to Quail Hollow for some golf, you probably don’t care what is on TV. But, if you are on the couch, here are the top aternatives to the Wells Fargo Championship.
1) NASCAR at Taaladega (SUN 1:15pm) – Super Speedway Racing will always create some drama. Big Packs of cars. Tons of lead changes. The Big One could happen at any moment. Plus, my guy Junior has a legitimate chance to win.
2) Knicks -Celtics- (GM 6 FRI 7PM) This could be history in the making. Teams that fall behind 0-3 are 0 for 113 in NBA history. That could change this weekend. And, wouldn’t it be wild if it was another Boston over NY comeback from 3-0. Throw in the drama involving funeral clothing and Melo’s wife and a bench warmer and this is good TV.
3) Kentucky Derby- (SAT 6:24)My father started taking my to the race track when I was very young. It’s always fun to place a wager on the Run for the Roses for Old Times sake. Plus, it’s over in 2 minutes, so my wife can’t tell me “you have been watching that sporting event too long.”
