It's an NFL Sunday!
So right off the bat, you can't be too mad about the sports offerings on TV today. Oh sure, the Texans aren't playing, but maybe that's a good thing. You can watch their battered division rivals square off in games that could determine the AFC South champion. Or you could watch teams that are actually good play. Your call. We'll mix in a little basketball as well, and I'd put the BCS selection show on here but there's no drama and the Coogs/Owls are protesting the BCS by not winning enough games to qualify as bowl eligible.
But I mean, if you really want to watch that (8 PM, ESPN), by all means...
Mega Man X2
Pittsburgh Steelrs @ Baltimore Ravens -- NBC, 7:20 PM -- Warm up those kicking legs, because this should be a good ol' fashioned field goal fest.
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Tennessee Titans -- CBS, 12 PM -- An odd time: if you want the Texans to make the playoffs, you actually have to root for the Titans here. You know what I say? Fuck it. Go Jaguars.
Washington Redskins @ New York Giants -- FOX, 12 PM -- Ever want to see Tony Siragusa roam the sidelines at the New Meadowlands Stadium? Me either, but it seems to happen at least twice a month since FOX can't avoid making NFC East games the crux of their coverage.
Mega Man X
College Basketball -- Oklahoma Sooners @ Arizona Wildcats -- FSN, 3 PM -- A perfect chance to root against Oklahoma, something that all of Texas is good at.
College Basketball -- Texas Longhorns @ USC Trojans -- FSN, 9:30 PM -- See USC's stars of today before the NCAA has to break out the memory wiper from Men In Black and make you forget they attended the university due to violations.
EPL -- Sunderland vs. West Ham United --- Fox Soccer Channel, 10 AM -- Mmmmmm....West Ham United.
Mega Man X3
Dallas Cowboys @ Indianapolis Colts -- FOX, 3:15 PM -- It's one thing to have to deal with Peyton Manning's hype, and it's another to have to deal with Troy Aikman calling a Cowboys game. It's another thing to have to deal with those things, Joe Buck, and a steady cascade of facial close-ups on FOX's broadcast coverage. Trust me, watch the college basketball. You'll feel better.
