Blog Photo - Game On! Live Sports Thread 9/28/13Late September is football dominant of course, and today's schedule shows that. Baseball, soccer, the Nationwide race, and preseason hockey. That's it. Of course, baseball is in its final weekend, and still has much to decide. We still don't know who the 2 AL Wild Card teams will be. We don't which NL team will host the Wild Card game, and we don't know the full seedings just yet. There are also some very good Premier League matches on paper. The non-football sports aren't to be forgotten just yet.

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

Already a crazy day in soccer, as both Manchester powerhouse teams lose. Man City somehow lost on the road to Aston Villa 3-2, while Man United lost at home to West Brom 2-1.
