Pregame Reads

  • The Walter White of sports is much more obvious than you might think.
  • Bobby Orr will talk about his career in hockey, but is hesitant to discuss his charitable work off of the ice, writes Bob Hohler of the Boston Globe.
  • After up-and-down years on Long Island, the Islanders will soon move to Brooklyn. W.M. Akers of the Classical wonders what that will mean for the team.


Starter

NL Wild Card: Cincinnati Reds vs. Pittsburgh Pirates, 8:00p.m. (TBS)

There has been a wave of joy for the folks in Pittsburgh now that their long absence from the postseason has come to an end. Much of that joy will be for naught if they drop this one-game playoff to the Reds. Pirates' superstar Andrew McCutchen put a scare into his team by taking a line drive to the head in practice yesterday. McCutchen is fine and handled the incident -- as he does all things -- like a boss.


Reserves

NHL

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens 7:00p.m.

Winnipeg Jets vs. Edmonton Oilers, 10:00p.m.

Washington Capitals vs. Chicago Blackhawks, 8:00p.m. (NBC Sports & Live Extra)

Hockey is Back! I know it feels like the Stanley Cup just ended. There are probably still some Boston Bruins fans wandering the forests of Western Massachusetts, not yet ready to rejoin society. Hopefully there's no Wi-Fi in the woods, because this video of the Blackhawks receiving their championship bling will be tough for them to watch.

Soccer

D.C. United vs. Real Salt Lake, 9:00p.m.

NCAA Men's: Binghamton vs. Syracuse, 7:00p.m. (ESPN3)

UEFA Champions League: Celtic vs. Barcelona, 2:30p.m. (Fox Sports 1)

Poker

World Series of Poker Main Event: Day 6, 9:30p.m. (ESPN)

TV

E:60, 7:00p.m. (ESPN)

Being: Mike Tyson, 10:30p.m. (Fox Sports 1)

Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell: Guest Jesse Ventura, 11:00p.m. (FXX)


Deep Bench

30 for 30: Hawaiian- The Legend of Eddie Aikau, 8:00p.m. (ESPN)

The ESPN documentary series returns with a surf film by the makers of Dogtown and Z Boys. Eddie Aikau became a legend surfing the massive waves of Hawaii. His tale ends as anyone would expect: The daredevil surfer who lived his life on the edge, chasing death while surfing killer waves is, of course, killed in a sailing accident.
