Thursday, Feb. 2
Pro basketball, Cleveland at Miami (7 p.m., TNT): Cleveland's LeBron James, who's starring in some amusing sneaker commercials, faces Miami's Shaquille O'Neal, who can't act or rap.
Friday, Feb. 3
College baseball, Thomas at Belhaven (3 p.m., DH): The boys of winter throw out the first pitch of the season. Brrr.
Saturday, Feb. 4
College basketball, Ole Miss at Tennessee (2 p.m., Ch. 12/97.3 FM) and Auburn at Mississippi State (6 p.m., Starkville, FSN/105.9 FM): Our teams are on TV more than "Leave It To Beaver" reruns. Which would be a good thing if they were any good.
Sunday, Feb. 5
Pro football, Super Bowl, Seattle vs. Pittsburgh (5 p.m., Ch. 16): They're playing the NFL title game this week? Why didn't somebody mention it?
Monday, Feb. 6

Tuesday, Feb. 7
College baseball, Grambling at Jackson State (1 p.m.): If you're going to see a game at University Park, you're running out of time. The Tigers are getting a new crib soon.
Wednesday, Feb. 8
"Cheap Seats" (9:30 p.m., ESPN Classic): The Sklar Brothers snark on the 1989 Holiday Bowl, MST3K style. And who can blame them? If you've never seen this show, start now.
