• MLB: Colorado at Atlanta. The catcher's mask protects my face, but does nothing to hide the longing and regret. [TBS]
• Extreme sports: X Games, at Los Angeles. You weren't quite extreme enough on that last run, Todd. Let's watch that. [ESPN]
• Tennis: ATP, Legg Mason Classic, quarterfinal, at Washington; WTA Tour, Acura Classic, quarterfinal, at Carlsbad, Calif. Some sour cream, a platter of cheese and a box of delicious Ritz Crackers will make this a real party to remember. [ESPN2]
