HD Sportsman – August 9-15 football’s back edition

Aug 9, 2010 by

Thank GOODNESS for football’s return. It looks pretty bleak otherwise. We get treated to some nice international friendly soccer Tuesday, but there’s a chance it might be in SD (though I can’t see why since it’s being played at the home of the New York Jets/Giants). The...

Sadly, the US went out in the first round of the knockout stage at the World Cup. That leaves a pretty big hole in the July 4 week viewing. Not that the World Cup stops there, my adopted team - The Dutch - are still in it. This week we'll get to the quarterfinals of the event. Elsewhere, Wimbledon comes to a close Sunday morning on NBC after a week of action on ESPN and NBC. The 2010 Tour de France almost takes over Versus starting Saturday. Happy 4th!
