Blog Photo - Game On! Sports Lineup 10/17/13Greetings, sports fans! Big sports night, as it usually is on Thursdays. There are 12 NHL games (separate thread), Thursday Night Football, an ALCS game, a whole bunch of preseason basketball, and more! Schedule follows below, all times eastern as usual.

But first...I guess LeBron - yes, that one - is questioning somebody's loyalty. I'm not a big basketball fan, but does that seem right to you?.....Robert Griffin III isn't worried if his football career doesn't pan out, because he could be an Olympic ping-pong player! Uhm...what?.....would you be willing to commit even more time to TNF with a second game on the slate each week? I don't think I would - that's a little much....in need of a little comic relief? I found these fat logos to be quite amusing; most of them, anyway.....and if that doesn't work, the NFL F-U Power Rankings are out!....here are some Week 7 picks to go agree or disagree with.....It's been awhile since we heard anything about Johnny Manziel - so here's an analysis of his NFL creds.....also - Week 8 pick-a-thon.....And apparently the Panthers will be showing the ALCS on their arena TV's while the Panthers and Bruins play. Pretty cool!

NFL:
8:25pm - Seahawks @ Cardinals
Broadcast: NFL Network
My Pick: As usual, I'm not making one. I will say that this game makes me nervous. The past few games have been a struggle for Seattle. Also, the Seahawks have lost 6 of their last 7 in Glendale. My advice to you? Pick who you want...but if you pick the Hawks, don't take the points.
Bet QBucks on this game!

watching the Hawks - Cards game, but it's very hard to do so for me.
Cards have been outscored 72-0 in the past game & a half versus the Seahawks.
