There are plenty of sports events to watch on TV tonight, from the Phillies-Reds game at 7PM ET on ESPN 2 to the Sabres at Bruins on NBC Sports at 7:30 PM ET to the incredibly intense Jazz and Lakers games, on ESPN at 8 PM and 10:30 PM respectively, which will decide the fate of both of those teams, as one of them will miss the playoffs. There’s also WWE Main Event on ION, in the event that I ever discover what channel that is on U-verse.
Chances are I’ll probably end up watching the Cardinals game in an exhausted daze on my couch, because the 24/7 cable news cycle is breaking me to pieces, and I don’t even watch that nonsense. But it finds a way to sneak up on you and get you in a mental chokehold, like carbon monoxide in a running car in the garage, except all in my brain. I’m not sure where I’m going with this, to be honest, but I’m tired and my head and heart hurt, that’s for sure. (I’ll be more fun tomorrow, I promise.)
But baseball made me pretty happy last night as teams and fans across the country paid tribute to the victims of Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing, and I’ll watch that New York Yankees video again, as the Bronx Bombers fans sang along with “Sweet Caroline” for one night. And I had some leftover photo tributes left over from my morning search, so I figured in lieu of the TV listings, we could honor New York’s finest baseball fans one more time.
