Sports Watcher for the Weekend of 6/21-22 (UPDATED)

All times PDT. Sorry about the bare bones nature of this when it first went up!

11:30-2 PM: UEFA Soccer, Euro 2008, Netherlands v. Russia (ABC). Because Dad will kill me if I don't mention this. There is something very interesting about this quarterfinal game, which I will mention next week.

4-7 PM: College baseball, College World Series, Fresno State v. North Carolina (ESPN). Ignore what I said on the previous version of this post about this being the second semifinal game. Due to a rainout, it's now the first. If a second is needed, it will be on ESPN Classic tomorrow.

9-12 AM: Ultimate Fighting Championship, The Ultimate Fighter Finale (SpikeTV): Same on both coasts. I can't remember if TUF is a Contender ripoff or if the Contender is an Ultimate Fighter ripoff.

10-12:30 PM: IndyCar Series, Ethanol IndyCar 250 at Iowa (ABC). Talk about odd timing...

2-5:30 PM: NASCAR Sprint Cup Racing, Toyota/Save Mart 350 (TNT). At one point I was planning on having an Arena Football game and a baseball game here - and three of the four teams, including both home teams, would have been from Chicago. I only excluded the Battle for the Windy City because this interferes with that, just barely.

Thus ends a Sports Watcher mainstay until fall - well, it would be a mainstay if I had re-started the Watcher sooner - the NCAA championships. But fret not! The Arena Football League playoffs start next week! That doesn't excite you? One word: Wimbledon!
