What to do? What to do?
Is it a night to hit up the bar with a dozen TV’s? Perhaps its time to set up multiple TV’s alongside the desktop and laptop? Perhaps its time to stop at Wal-Mart and pick up a few extra double A batteries for the remote?
Well if you are in my position there isn’t a decision to be made. I’ll be working, that being said I’ll be right in front of the action working for a sports news wire service.
So why is this such a busy night in the world of sports?
– The NBA closes out the regular season tonight with 13 games, 10 of which take place starting at 8pm. By the close of the night we will know every first round match-up of the playoffs.
Highlights on this final day of the regular season include:
Dallas in Atlanta and Orlando at Memphis.
Kobe Bryant is not expected to play tonight which means Kevin Durant will win yet another scoring title.
– The NHL treats us to a pair of do or die game 7’s. If last night is any indication we are in for a real treat.
Game Seven – Ottawa Senators at New York Rangers, 7 p.m.
Game Seven – New Jersey Devils at Florida Panthers, 8:30 p.m.
– The MLB schedule is fairly light as a lot of teams are on travel days while others play during the day in preparation for travel.
The Blue Jays square off against the Orioles as both teams attempt to keep pace in the AL East at 7pm.
The Red Sox will attempt to figure of the recently perfect Phil Humber in Chicago starting at 8pm.
The lone west coast game of the night features the best record in the NL Nationals finishing up a series against the Padres in Petco Park.
– The NFL gathers in New York tonight as the NFL Draft gets under way with the first of 3 days of picks, trades and speculation.
NFL fans prepare yourself for 3 days of NFL coverage. I suspect ESPN & NFL Network will likely find themselves with higher ratings than the NHL’s game 7’s.
Tonight we get the highly anticipated first round. Friday & Saturday will fill out the remainder of the draft.
We expect Andrew Luck to head to Indianapolis with the first pick and RGIII to follow as the second pick as he begins his career as a Redskin. But from pick 3 on, who knows?
Regardless of what your favorite sport may be, there is something interesting happening tonight. So sit back, relax and watch sports!!!
