We are officially 13 days away from the 2012 NFL Draft, and I know that all of you are pining for that moment when Goodell will march to the podium and announce the start of the draft. Ah, if only I had a time machine....alas, I do not but there are quite a few other things to watch today to get you through one more day, so that tomorrow might come and then, thankfully, there will only be 12 days until the draft!
MLB: Chicago Cubs vs. St. Louis Cardinals (12:30 PM, Fox)
After the Reds' 23 inning loss to the Nationals last night, the only thing that can cure these hometown blues is seeing the Cubs beat the Cardinals. The actual chances of that happening are slim, but at least it could make you feel a bit better!
PGA Tour: The RBC Heritage, third round coverage (3:00 PM, CBS)
I mean, it's not like watching Bubba Watson nail an impossible shot during a playoff hole at the most important annual event on the PGA Tour, but Colt Knost is leading the field by 2 strokes, and only three strokes separate the top four players. So, it could be just as exciting as last weekend's Masters, right?!
MLS: Columbus Crew vs. Philadelphia Union (3:30 PM, NBCSN)
While some of you have already seen Manchester City absolutely demolish Norwich City earlier this morning, you still have a chance to watch your hometown MLS team face-off against Philadelphia!
NASCAR: Samsung Mobile 500 (7:00 PM, Fox)
You can watch cars drive fast in a circle tonight at 7pm on Fox...and there might even be a wreck to liven things up! But seriously, Dale Earnhardt Jr. is only a few points behind Greg Biffle for the lead in the Sprint Cup Series and Earnhardt Jr. will certainly be looking to take over the lead tonight as well as get his first win this season.
NBA: Phoenix Suns vs. San Antonio Spurs (9:00 PM, ESPN)
This is the only NBA game on TV today. The Spurs are 15-3 in their last 18 games and they will be looking to make easy work of the struggling Suns tonight.
Playoff Hockey. Enough said, right?!?!
