Pregame Reads

  • Like a bank robber pointing fingers at a jaywalker, the NFL ran a story about the dangers of concussions ... in baseball.
  • Skip Bayless, ugh. You may have to scream this Washington Post profile by Rick Maese out loud to yourself to feel like  you're getting the full Bayless experience.


Starter

College Football #1 Alabama vs. #6 Texas A&M, 3:30p.m. (CBS)

Saturday is a day where the talk mercifully ends. After a full offseason of talk about Johnny Manziel and his John Hancock, we finally get to see him play in the game that will mean everything in deciding who will be national champion (unless Alabama loses, in which case this game may mean nothing, like last year).

Johnny


Reserves

Boxing

Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez, 9:00p.m. (Showtime PPV)

These two combine for 86 wins, zero loses, 56 knock outs, innumerable abdominal muscles, one unstoppable mouth, and one unfortunate ginger goatee. All jokes aside, this is the biggest fight in a long time. So much so that you'll probably be willing to spend an evening in your neighbor's man cave/B.O. sauna just because he's willing to pay for it.
