All times are Pacific.

Friday February 5th

Indiana Pacers at Atlanta Hawks – 4pm ESPN: Hawks sit in third in the Eastern Conference and  Pacers are looking to keep pace.

Pittsburgh Penguins at Tampa Bay Lightning – 4:30pm NHLN: Pens are three points back of the Lightning in the Eastern Conference. Game could be a big factor as we get closer to the playoffs.

San Antonio Spurs at Dallas Mavericks – 6:30pm ESPN: It’s just a solid rivalry game year in and year out.

 

Saturday February 6th

Manchester City vs Leicester City – 4:45am NBCSN: Two teams at the top of the table in the Premier League. Let’s do this.

Hertha BSC vs Boruissa Dortmund – 6:30am FS1: One of three big games in the Bundesliga this weekend. Dortmund looks to keep Bayern Munich within striking distance but Hertha has other ideas.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich – 9:30am FOX: The Bundesliga doesn’t get much love here but when it does, it features Bayern Munich.

Washington Capitals at New Jersey Devils – 10am NHL.TV: Devils are sitting on the outside of the playoff by virtue of a tie breaker. A win against the NHL’s top team would put a lot of confidence into that bunch.

Purdue at Maryland – 1pm ESPN: Tune in to watch the Terps Melo Trimble do work. It’s something to see.

North Carolina at Notre Dame – 4pm ESPN: While Notre Dame isn’t the same power they have been in years passed, they are still a heck of a basketball team and South Bend is still a tough place to play.

Baylor at West Virginia – 5pm ESPN2: A top 25 matchup and WVU is coming off of a big road win earlier this week.

Chicago Blackhawks at Dallas Stars – 5pm NHLN: These two are neck and neck in the Western Conference.

Oklahoma City Thunder at Golden State Warriors – 6pm ABC: Durant and Westbrook take on the defending champs and Steph Curry. Pull up a chair and enjoy the best the NBA has to offer.

 

Sunday February 7th

Chelsea vs Manchester United – 8am NBCSN: Because it’s Chelsea vs Manchester United that’s why!

LA Clippers at Miami Heat – 11am ABC: Lob City hits Dade County. Lot of talent and its should be a nice game entertain us as we wait for the Super Bowl.

Utah at Oregon – 1pm ESPN2: Underrated game out west for your Sunday afternoon.

Peyton Manning BroncosSuper Bowl 50 – 3:30pm CBS: If you don’t who is playing and the story lines and then you have been living under a rock on Saturn. It’s the Carolina Panthers vs the Denver Broncos by the way. Oh and it’s probably Peyton’s last game.

24/7 Soccer World

Most people have come to terms with the reality that the world is a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week place. There are some remnants of the old school way of thinking such as evening newscasts, office hours and last call. The world of sports, especially soccer, has thrown out the idea of office hours.

During the fall or spring you can almost watch soccer for 24 hours a day. From Australia’s A-League to the German Bundesliga to the Barclay’s Premier League in England to MLS in North America. Soccer can be found either on TV or online. All live and in HD. Just follow the sun and you’ll find soccer.

TFC v SKC

You can do it from anywhere but it’s probably best to attempt this is from the West Coast of North America. If you start by watching an A-League game on a Friday night then snooze for a few hours. Get up before the sun for matches in the Netherlands, Germany and England and that should to take you until noon Pacific Coast time. At that point the MLS will take over for the rest of the day and end you’ll the day with a west coast game either in Seattle, Portland, San Jose or Los Angeles.

It’s a commitment but so is 90 minutes on the pitch.
