Stuff to Watch

Hello.  The “Big Game” is coming up, but not until February 4th, 2018.  That’s right folks, there is no football this weekend.  What the heck to do, eh?  We can just go outside or see people or do other lame life things.  So here are some things to watch.

Washington Bullets at Oklahoma City Thunder

What: NBA Basketball

Where: TNT

When: Thursday, January 25, 7:00 p.m. CST

Why: Westbrook >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Wall

Why not: Bullets are, in fact, hot trash lately.

Minnesota Timberwolves at Golden State Warriors

What: NBA Basketball

Where: TNT

When: Thursday, January 25, 9:00 p.m. CST

Why: Golden State is the team of the last 25 years, and playing salty lately.

Why not: The Wolves are not good enough to have a real chance to win.  Jimmy Butler is likely missing the game, which means a TruMassacre is in the works.

Hyeon Chung vs. Roger Federer

What: Men’s Tennis, Australian Open Semifinal

Where: ESPN

When: Friday January 26, 2018, 2:30 a.m. CST

Why: Chung is a 21 year old next generation player with preternatural defensive skills, and Federer is the GOAT with offensive weapons to spare.  Something has to give.

Why not: It is on at 2:30 a.m. CST

Houston Rockets at New Orleans Pelicans

What: NBA Basketball

Where: ESPN

When: Friday January 26, 2018, 7:00 p.m. CST

Why: The Rockets are undefeated when in full health, and the Pelicans have the most modern Twin Towers imaginable.

Why not: Pelicans are under-achievers likely to be blown off the court.

Simona Halep vs. Caroline Wozniaki

What: Women’s Tennis, Australian Open Final

Where: ESPN

When: Saturday January 27, 2018, 2:30 a.m. CST

Why: Both players have been consistently good, never great, and one will finally win a grand slam.

Why not: It is on at 2:30 a.m. CST.  Both players are defensive-minded, and somewhat monotonous.

NHL All Star Skills Competition

What: NHL All Star Skills Competition

Where: NBCSN

When: Saturday January 27, 2018, 6:30 p.m. CST

Why: You actually should not watch this.

Why not: Why?

UFC Fight Night Jacare vs. Brunson 2

What: UFC Fight Night Jacare vs. Brunson 2, except Jacare has been replaced by Ronald Souza.

Where: FOX/FS1

When: Saturday January 27, 2018, 7:00 p.m. CST

Why not: Its not that good of a card.

Marin Cilic vs. Hyeon Chung/Roger Federer

What: Men’s Tennis, Australian Open Final

Where: ESPN

When: Sunday January 28, 2018, 2:30 a.m. CST

Why: Federer will likely be in this match, and aiming for his 20th major.  Cilic was beating Federer in last year’s Wimbledon final when he suffered the ugliest blister ever.  Plus he’s handsome.

Why not: It is on at 2:30 a.m. CST.

NHL All Star Tournament

What: NHL All Star Tournament

Where: NBC

When: Sunday January 28, 2018, 2:30 p.m. CST
