Blog Photo - Game On! Live Sports Thread 8/3/13Good morning and Happy Saturday to all. We're into August, and thus the first major event of the football season: the Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony. Tonight Bill Parcells, Cris Carter, Larry Allen, Jonathan Ogden, Warren Sapp, Curley Culp, and Dave Robinson receive their bronze busts. In terms of actual athletic action, there's a full night of baseball thanks to a surprising dearth of day games. There's also a women's golf major, and a pretty big PGA event that's led by some guy named Tiger. We also have racing, tennis, soccer, the X Games (which seem to be on every other week now), and more.

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

8/4/13   |   kramer   |   11003 respect

Francisco Liriano is now 12-4 and has gotten a decision in all 16 starts.  7 innings of shutout baseball and he's become the ace of this staff by a long shot (no disrespect to Jeff Locke).

Tiger is currently up 8 shots. The Royals and Mets are in the 11th. It's been a quiet day so far.
