All times are Pacific.
Friday August 21st
Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Edmonton Eskimos – 6pm ESPN3: Two teams with 5-2 records but got to it in different ways. The Ti-Cats are doing it with balance across all three phases while the Eskimos have done it with defense and a backup QB. Interesting.
Toronto Blue Jays at LA Angels – 7pm MLB.COM: Both teams are in the AL Wild Card but the Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles are hot on their tails. Huge series this weekend.
Saturday August 22nd
SF Giants at Pittsburgh Pirates -1pm FS1: Playoff contenders and two solid pitchers (Heston vs Cole).
Toronto Blue Jays at LA Angels – 6pm MLB.TV: Like we said, huge series in the American League.
Real Salt Lake vs Seattle Sounders – 7pm MLS LIVE: RSL may not be the team they were and Seattle is getting healthy. Still, Rio Tinto is one of the toughest places to play in MLS.
Vancouver Whitecaps vs FC Dallas – 7pm MLS LIVE: Separated by four points in the west and both have a legit chance to win that conference.
Sunday August 23rd
Everton vs Manchester City – 7am NBSCN: City is coming off of a 3-0 thumping of Chelsea. Looks like a trap game to me.
LA Galaxy vs NYCFC – Noon ESPN: It’s one of the games MLS execs drool over. Keane, Gerrard, Gonzalez, David Villa, Lampard all of the field.
Ottawa Redblacks at Toronto Argonauts – 1pm ESPN3: Two teams that people didn’t think would be doing this well square off in downtown TO.
SF Giants at Pittsburgh Pirates – 5pm ESPN: Game four of a four game set. Playoff implications are on the line.
