Well, my fellow Americans, we've got... HEY! Stop putting misspelled captions underneath pictures of cats for ONE SECOND and pay attention here. We've got basketball playoffs for you, and if you don't pay attention to the regular season, you at least start becoming aware of pro hoops around this time. There are two games this afternoon, as well as hockey, tennis, racing ... something for everyone. There's also baseball, but if you need some guaranteed quality baseball, try NES's Legends of the Diamond. Sandlot baseball for Hall of Famers. It's Field Of Dreams without corn.
