Your Atlanta sports TV schedule. All times EST.â†µ
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Kennesaw St. Owls, 7:30, Fox Sports South: The Jackets leave the McThrillertit to play in the Convocation Center, the most blandly named arena in all of sports. I just looked up convocate. It means "gather." Everything in Kennesaw should be named after a Civil War general or Vince Dooley. This is obvious.â†µ
Siena Saints at Minnesota Golden Gophers, 9, ESPN3: If any of tonight's many pre-midnight college hoops games are going to be competitive, this might be it, believe it or not. Can the Metro Atlantic favorite upset a middling Big Ten squad?â†µ
Miami Hurricanes at Memphis Tigers, midnight, ESPN or ESPN3: Let's say we showed these two team names to any college sports message board. Which would conjure the most uses of the word thug? Is thug the most overused word in sports, or is it still choke? Still leaning towards classless.â†µ
Georgia Bulldogs at Auburn Tigers replay, 6, CSS: Nobody really wants to talk about this game, so let me just say this: I don't think Sarah Jessica Parker is anywhere near as unattractive as everyone says she is. I think you agree with me too, but you might not admit it.â†µ
Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins, 8:30, ESPN: Michael Vick! If the Eagles win, they'll be 6-3, which means they'll be an NFL team. Donovan McNabb! Until Mike Shanahan puts in Rex Grossman! Bet you four quarterbacks play in this game. GAME OF THE DAY!â†µ
St. Louis Blues at Colorado Avalanche, 8, Versus: Two Western Conference teams tangle for playoff positioning. I learned this by looking at the bottom part of the NHL standings.
