9/5/13 in MLB   |   Jess   |   34614 respect

Greetings, sports fans! While most of you will be focused on the first NFL game of the season at 8:30pm on NBC (don't worry, there's a separate thread for that), there is plenty of other stuff happening tonight as well. Not really a full slate of baseball, but we've got some soccer, golf, and tennis happening. But first...

Best of the Web Recap:
Brian Urlacher thinks he's revealing shocking information by admitting that the Bears faked injuries to slow down the other team.....Percy Harvin's making bold claims at being back around Week 7.....get your NFL Week 1 predictions ready - and share them with us here.....the blogosphere is full of Power Rankings this time of year, but I'd put money on the fact that you haven't seen Power Rankings like these yet.....every year a group of fans goes from being thrilled football is back to dreading the season quite quickly. Here's the AFC East Doomsday Preview.....already not looking promising for the Jags - QB Gabbert could be a game-time decision and Marcedes Lewis left practice early due to calf injury.....here are the 3 biggest NFL games this weekend that you should check out.....and more matchups to watch.....and even more Week 1 predictions.....do you think college players should be paid?.....speaking of college football, let's take a look at the Week 2 predictions.....How would you like to be this Red Sox fan right now?.....Lamar Odom finally checks into rehab.....Obviously I didn't get everything, so to see what else you may have missed, go to the Best of the Web and scroll through the latest articles!

As for the non-NFL related schedule, let's see what we've got (all times eastern.)

I lucked out; my Mariners are playing nice and early (though I did miss most of the game, and it'll probably be over by the time this is published) so I'll be able to catch the rest of that game as well as watch the entire football game tonight. What are you watching? Q it up here if it isn't football, and if it is, Q it up HERE

I'm showing solidarity to my O's tonight, especially given the situation with the Ravens tonight. Big series for the O's even though it's the White Sox. They have to win the series, or all those AL East games they end with won't mean a thing.

Also about to start is Djokovic's match, as he tries to avoid getting upset today like Murray and reach the semis.
