Pregame Reads


Starter

World Series Boston Red Sox vs. St. Louis Cardinals, 8:15p.m (Fox)

I'm sure I'm not the only one pointing out the irony of a Boston franchise having a huge game decided by the accurate implication of a rarely exercised rule. Yeah, I'm sure I'm not the only one.


Reserves

NFL

Seattle Seahawks vs. St. Louis Rams, 8:30p.m. (ESPN)

Has there ever been a greater discrepancy between a two games held in the same city on the same night? The superstar lineup of household names like Kellen Clemens, Zac Stacy, and Chris Givens doesn't exactly draw a lot of attention. A 15 minute walk stretches many, many miles in relevancy.

Tennis

BNP Paribas Masters, 2:30p.m. (ESPN3)

Boxing

Manuel Avila vs. Jose Angel Cota, 10:00p.m. (Fox Sports 1)

Avila was initially scheduled to face Jose Silveira tonight, but Silveira withdrew for unknown (or at least un-googleable) reasons. Of his fighter's new opponent, Avila's trainer said, "We have no film and know nothing about him." Always good to be prepared.

Under-17 World Cup

Japan vs. Sweden, 8:48a.m. (ESPN3)

Italy vs. Mexico, 8:48a.m. (ESPN3)

Honduras vs. Uzbekistan, 11:48a.m. (ESPN3)

Brazil vs. Russia, 11:48a.m. (ESPN3)

If you look up the words "mosquito" and "Brazil" you might be surprised that the search results will not contain advice for avoiding malaria near the Amazon. Rather, you will be led to information on the young Brazilian soccer star named Mosquito, who was involved in four of his team's six goals against Slovenia. Get ready for a lot of terrible bug puns at the 2022 World Cup.
