Blog Photo - Game On! Sports Live Thread 6/15/13The Blackhawks and Bruins have had a few days to rest after their triple overtime classic in Game 1. The resumption of hostilities in the Stanley Cup Final headlines a packed Saturday in sports. There's also the third round of the US Open, where only two players are under par right now, but one of them happens to be Phil Mickelson. There's also a full day of baseball, the start of the Confederations Cup (a dry run for the World Cup) and College World Series, and both stock car and IndyCar racing. There's something for everyone today, including the fight lovers, with both UFC and boxing too.

Here are the highlights of today's schedule, with my personal picks in bold (all times are eastern and are pm unless otherwise noted).

4:10 – Phillies (Pettibone) at Rockies (Chatwood)
4:10 – Cardinals (Lynn) at Marlins (Koehler)

Don't forget you can bet Q bucks on many of these events at the GameCenter. If I don't end up outside in this gorgeous weather, I'll be checking out the US Open, some baseball, maybe the Confederations Cup, and of course, the IndyCar race (live thread here for that race). Whatever your watching today though, Q it up here throughout.

We have overtime once again. I may not be able to make it to the end (I've had a few tonight), but the rest of you have fun. wink

Alexis Davis defeats Rosie Sexton by unanimous decision and even with no sound I have to agree!

Ok so the game and UFC are both showing here.  These women are insane!!!

6/15/13   |   Debi_L   |   11862 respect

Thoroughly enjoying this hockey game!!

I would say how the Orioles lost, but I have to go drink enough to forget about it.

Today's race winners were Regan Smith is the Nationwide race and Ryan Hunter-Reay in the IndyCar race.

Rays pitcher Alex Cobb just got hit in the head with a batted ball. The stretcher is out for him, but he wasn't really moving except for his foot a couple of times. Just awful.

Still two guys under par at the Open, but it's a different two now: John Senden and Luke Donald. Schwartzel, Rose, and Stricker are even par. Mickelson is +1. Woods and McIlroy are at +5. Sergio carded a 10 earlier.

The Confederations Cup got underway with this brilliant goal by Neymar in just the third minute.

All groups are off at the US Open.

HAPPY FELIX DAY! Hopefully these guys can get him some run support...Oakland scares me though. Heck...the Astros scare me.
