Blog Photo - Game On! Live Sports Thread 10/12/13We'll cover the college football and MLB postseason schedules later. In the rest of the sports world, we have the NASCAR Chase hitting its halfway point tonight at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Jeff Gordon is trying to keep himself in the championship mix, and he's started the weekend well by taking the pole for tonight's race. Points leader Matt Kenseth struggled a bit though and will start 20th. Kenseth leads Jimmie Johnson by just 3 points. Johnson is starting 4th. Third in the championship (25 points back) Kevin Harvick will start 2nd.

Elsewhere, we have a full slate of hockey, some World Cup qualifying (although most of those matches were yesterday), and a PPV boxing match involving Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez. Both recently beat Manny Pacquiao: Bradley by dubious decision and Marquez by stunning knockout. Also, if you're on the West Coast, or up at 2 in the morning, there's the Japanese Grand Prix. The Suzuka circuit is one of the best in Formula One, and it could be a fantastic race.
