What's On Television Today: Jan. 4, 2011

I asked for the double-double, but they gave me the double-double-double-double.

Football Outsiders
Sugar Bowl: Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Ohio St. Buckeyes -- ESPN, 7 p.m. -- Our alumnus @worstfan will be on the ground giving updates of quaint brotasticness.
Manchester United vs. Stoke City -- Fox Soccer Channel, 2 p.m. -- If the Texans were, by some weird chance, named Stoke City, I bet the Houston Chronicle would give us at least 30 articles beginning with Stroke City!!!
College Basketball: Arkansas Razorbacks @ Texas Longhorns -- ESPNU, 8 PM -- Arkansas basketball would probably need Nolan Richardson to commit a crime sometime in the next 12 hours to get half the viewers that their football game will draw.

Basketball Prospectus
San Antonio Spurs @ New York Knicks -- NBA TV, 6:30 p.m. -- A rematch of the totally forgettable 1999 finals! You can bet Chris Childs is pumped up for this one!
College Basketball: Indiana Hoosiers @ Minnesota Golden Gophers -- ESPN2, 6 p.m. -- What exactly makes a mascot golden, anyway? Is it all the money that the players should be getting paid?

Baseball Prospectus
Minnesota Wild @ New Jersey Devils -- Versus, 6 p.m. -- As usual, root on the Houston Aeros' affiliate as they crush one of the weakest teams in the NHL.
