Sports On Television: June 10, 2012


Sports on television seems a little bland. There are races, baseball and golf. I'm sure something exciting will happen at some point. We're just not sure. Perhaps this is a day we wait for the Cincinnati Reds on primetime Sunday night.

NASCAR Racing: Spring Cup Pocono 400 (1:00 PM, TNT)
Anytime you call a race by the speedway's name (or the city it's raced in), it's never good because that means they couldn't acquire sponsorship for the event. And in truth, if you watch this race, you'll see why. I enjoy racing as much as anyone, but if you're looking for a nap Sunday afternoon, tune into TNT. Joey Logano and Carl Edwards will take the green flag first and second respectively.

MLB Baseball: New York Mets at New York Yankees (1:00 PM, TBS)
The Yankees have already taken the series, after a 9-1 win Friday night and a 4-2 victory over the Mets on Saturday. Now it's just a matter of the Mets preventing the sweep.

Formula One Racing: Canadian Grand Prix (2:00 PM, FOX)
The Canadian Grand Prix has been running since 1961 and part of the Formula One World Championship since 1967. The event moved to Ile Notre-Dame in Montreal in 1978 where it's been ever since.

LPGA Tour Golf: Wegmans LPGA Championship (2:00 PM, Golf Channel)
Eun-Hee Ji holds onto a one-stroke lead with 12 golfers within three strokes heading into the final round.

Euro 2012 Soccer: Croatia vs. Ireland (2:30 PM, ESPN)
Group C (Spain, Italy, Ireland, Croatia) plays on Sunday, with Croatia and Ireland concluding the day.

PGA Tour Golf: St. Jude Classic (3:00 PM, CBS)
A tight field just got tighter after the third round ended with six golfers (Chad Campbell, Nick O'Hern, Kevin Stadler, John Merrick, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson) tied for the lead at six under.

MLB Baseball: Detroit Tigers at Cincinnati Reds (8:00 PM, ESPN)
After securing a 6-5 win in extra innings Friday night, the Cincinnati Reds fell one run short Saturday afternoon after an eighth-inning RBI single by Prince Fielder. They are playing a primetime game on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball.
