The Greatest Sports Weekend Ever
It is that time of year that sports fans are blessed with all four major sports playing at the same time. Baseball is just finishing their season with Game 3 of the World Series tonight on Fox. Both college football and the NFL is in the middle of their season with great games to watch throughout the weekend with playoff implications. The NBA recently started their 82 game season with college basketball beginning their exhibition season with the regular season just a couple weeks away. The NHL has started its season as well. More importantly for Grand Rapids, the Griffins have started their quest for a repeat after winning the Calder Cup in 2017.
Games that I will be watching this weekend are…
Rockford High School @ Grand Ledge (Friday at 7:00. 1st Playoff Game)
Michigan State @ Northwestern (Saturday 3:30 ESPN)
Penn St @ Ohio State (Saturday at 3:30 FOX)
NC State @ Notre Dame (Saturday at 3:30 NBC) (Yes I will have 2-3 TVs haha)
LA Dodgers @ Houston Astros Game 4 (Saturday at 8:20 FOX)
Michigan State Basketball vs Georiga (2:00 at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids for their second exhibition game)
Dallas Cowboys @ Washington Redskins (Sunday at 4:25 FOX)
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Detroit Lions (Sunday at 8:30 NBC)
If the NHL or NBA had games that were on a channel that I had, I would probably do my best to squeeze in a game or two. Enjoy this weekend because there will not be another sports weekend like it in a long time.
