The Best In Sports In 7 Days

Doctor S sez: What a terrible day for America. No, not losing in the World Cup. I'm talking about the release of that dang new "Twilight" movie. I haven't seen so much pouting since Ole Miss banned the Rebel flag.

Thursday, July 1
Tennis, Wimbledon, women's semifinals (6 p.m., ESPN): Is Serena still in this thing?

Friday, July 2
Major League baseball, Florida at Atlanta (6:35 p.m., CSS, 620 AM): The big Braves open a holiday weekend series with the stinking Fish.

Saturday, July 3
PDL soccer, Mississippi at New Orleans (7 p.m., New Orleans): The Brilla head to the Big Easy for an Independence Eve contest.

Sunday, July 4
Tennis, Wimbledon, men's final (8 a.m., Ch. 3): You will probably see Roger Federer and some other Euro battle for lawn tennis supremacy. ... Southern League baseball, West Tenn at Mississippi (7:05 p.m., Pearl, 103.9 FM): It will be almost as hot as a firecracker when the M-Braves and Diamond Jaxx open a brief series. Declare your independence from the couch.

Monday, July 5
Major League baseball, Atlanta at Philadelphia (6:05 p.m., Ch. 23, 620 AM): The Braves and Phillies open a huge NL East series in the City of Brotherly Hate. The venom will flow.

Tuesday, July 6
Soccer, World Cup, semifinal A (teams TBD, 1 p.m., ESPN): You will see a team from Europe play a team from South America.

Wednesday, July 7
Southern League baseball, Birmingham at Mississippi (7:05 p.m., Pearl, 103.9 FM): The Barons fly into the TeePee to open a series with the M-Braves.

The Slate is compiled by Doctor S, whose love/hate relationship with soccer is alive and well.
