Blog Photo - Game On! Live Sports Thread 7/20/13Happy Saturday, where unless you live in a high mountain area, you're probably sweltering already. Unfortunately, sports picked a bad day to be mostly quiet. However, we do have baseball back after four long days without a game that meant anything, and we also have the third round of the Open Championship (or British Open for you non-Angelophiles). A certain Tiger Woods is one shot back and teed off just a few minutes ago.

Also on the schedule is the penultimate day of the Tour de France, the start of the knockout rounds of the Gold Cup, and some lesser known racing series, as all the big series are off this week. Also, for those that are champing at the bit* for football, there is CFL and Arena football today.

* Yes, that is the correct saying.

Here is today’s schedule. All times are eastern and are pm unless otherwise indicated. Personal picks are in bold.
