HD Sportsman Aug. 17-23 better late than never edition

Aug 17, 2010 by

Take the first part of the week off, because it’s pretty lame. Save for a couple baseball games on Wednesday, you don’t have anything to pick from until Friday. The Little League World Series dominates the listings this weekend on the ESPN family. The NFL preseason continues as...

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!

HD Sportsman – April 12-18

Apr 12, 2010 by
