The Best In Sports In 7 Days

Doctor S sez: You know the sports season is lame when the WNBA is your fourth sports option. Me, I'd rather watch Arena football.

Thursday, June 16
Golf, U.S. Open (9 a.m. and 4 p.m., ESPN, 2 p.m., Ch. 3): Golf's toughest test begins without Tiger Woods. Cocktail waitresses in the D.C. area are devastated. The rest of the week's schedule is the same on Friday, 1 p.m. Saturday (Ch. 3) and 12:30 p.m. Sunday (Ch. 3).

Friday, June 17
Major League baseball, Texas at Atlanta (6:30 p.m., SportSouth, 930 AM): Interleague play resumes with a matchup of two of baseball's best teams.

Saturday, June 18
College World Series, Game 1, Vanderbilt vs. North Carolina (1 p.m., ESPN) and Florida vs. Texas (6 p.m., ESPN): The Doctor will stop to watch for a minute or so when flipping around, but it won't be the same without Mississippi State.

Sunday, June 19
Southern League baseball, Mississippi at Jacksonville (2 p.m., Jacksonville, Fla., 103.9 FM): The M-Braves conclude the first half in last place in the Southern Division. Better luck in the second half, guys.

Monday, June 20
Major League baseball, New York Yankees at Cincinnati (6 p.m.,, ESPN): Interleague play would be much better if we saw less Yankees-Mets and more series like this one.

Tuesday, June 21
Southern League baseball, SL All-Star Game (7:15 p.m., Jackson, Tenn.): The reward for being one of the best players in the Southern League is a free trip to West Tennessee?

Wednesday, June 22
Major League baseball, Toronto at Atlanta (6 p.m. SportSouth, 930 AM): The Braves are good and the Blue Jays are pretty good, I think. After I get past third place in the AL East, I lose interest.

The Slate is compiled by Doctor S, who reminds you that he picked the Mavericks to win the NBA Finals. Yes, he's a Heat hater. But you will find what you love at JFP Sports on the JFP Sports Blog.
