What to watch as the dog takes itself for a walk ...
• World Baseball Classic: Final, Cuba vs. Japan, at San Diego. All the taste of real baseball with only half the calories. [ESPN]
• College Basketball: National Invitation Tournament, second round, Notre Dame at Michigan. And so we find that Michigan is the only Big Ten team still playing. (Along with Minnesota.) Sad, really. [ESPN]
• NHL: Boston at New York Rangers. Not Yankees-Red Sox by any means, but we still wouldn't wear a Bruins jersey in certain areas is we were you. [OLN]
