Actual Sports on TV
ESPN3 is airing something called the U.S. Men’s Pro Tennis Series starting at 7:00 AM CT. All right, I have no idea what that is. Your daily Korean baseball replay airs on ESPN2 at 1:00 PM CT, and it’s between the Kiwoom Heroes and the Hanwha Eagles. At 1:30 PM CT on FS2, German soccer! Werder Bremen vs. Eintracht Frankfurt!
And, last but not least, at 9:00 PM CT on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes... a Costa Rican soccer match between Deportivo Saprissa and Jicaral. If Costa Rican soccer is not an AoG meme by the end of this week, I will be severely disappointed.
