If Donovan McNabb wrapped himself in a blanket with his own picture on it, would the earth implode?
Listen. We’d all love to have a statue of Kevin Bacon made out of bacon. But the reality is, only one of us can win that ebay auction. So what are the rest of us supposed to do to fill the Bacon/bacon void this weekend? How ‘bout watch some sports and buy some stuff that’s NOT made from cured meat. On to another edition of For Sale Friday … .
The 2010 Ryder Cup
Starts Friday at 2:30 AM (ET) on ESPN
Will you be up in the wee hours of Friday morning to catch all the USA vs. Europe golfing action from the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, Wales? If so, you must be quite the golf fan. And what does every big-time golf fan need? If you said his own copy of Caddyshack Trivia – the “first and only game that allows fans to play a round of trivia golf through answering questions and quoting one-liners that feature hilarious moments from the film" – you’re correct.
College Football Saturday
No. 9 Stanford at No. 4 Oregon
Saturday at 8 ET on ABC
This big Pac-10 matchup highlights Saturdays’ action. Will you spend the day huddled on the couch? Will you spend the day huddled on the couch struggling with how to support the Ducks, reach for popcorn AND stay warm and cuddly? Then the Oregon Snuggie is for you. If you’re one of those types that likes to get in some activity in between games, say, gardening, and you support the Cardinal, may we suggest a Stanford garden gnome? Well, we’re suggesting it. With your permission or not.
Last Day of MLB’s Regular Season
Padres at Giants
Sunday at 4:05 ET
Entering Friday, the Giants' magic number to clinch the NL West is one and the Padres sit on the brink of elimination. But hey, stranger things have happened. Will the NL pennant still be up for grabs Sunday? Either way, Pads fans should think about springing for this 1998 NL West Champions t-shirt. Either in celebration or (more likely) for posterity.
Washington at Philadelphia
Sunday at 4:15 ET on FOX
Donovan McNabb thinks he’ll be cheered upon his return to Philly Sunday. So we’ll see how that goes. In the meantime, for all you Philly fans who still feel connected to No. 5, why not snuggle on the couch with a McNabb afghan? Because players may come and go, but 100 percent polyester loom-woven jacquard throws are forever.
