Saturday, Aug. 7
Southern League baseball, Mississippi at Birmingham (6:30 p.m., Birmingham, Ala., 103.9 FM): The M-Braves and Barons open a series in the Steel City. Go by and see Vulcan, guys, it's worth the trip.

Sunday, Aug. 8
NFL football, Hall of Fame Game, Dallas vs. Cincinnati (7 p.m., Ch. 3): America's Team faces America's Felons in a much-awaited meaningless exhibition. What's the point spread?

Monday, Aug. 9

Tuesday, Aug. 10
International soccer, Brazil at U.S. (6 p.m., ESPN): The Americans and Brazilians meet in East Rutherford, N.J., in a friendly bout. Unfortunately for the U.S., the visitors will have more fans in the stadium.
