Yankees Look to Draw Even, Plus ‘The League,’ Ochocinco, and the Sports Guy

by 9 years ago

We’re about to leave for Yankee Stadium for what will surely be an epic Game 2 match-up between Pedro Martinez and the Phillies and A.J. Burnett and the Yankees. (Don’t forget Jay-Z and Alicia Keyes perform live at 7:30 p.m.) Although we can’t possibly recommend that you watch anything else tonight, we do recommend you DVR/TiVo “The League,” a comedy about fantasy football of all things, which has gotten good reviews, as well as Ochocinco delivering the Top 10 list tonight on Letterman. Also, the Sports Guy, Bill Simmons, will be on Colbert. Enjoy the game though. We know we will.
