If you're watching sports this weekend, there's plenty of Tour de France action to watch... if you plan on waking up earlier than any human being should ever wake up on a weekend. The same applies to the British Open. Although you weren't going to watch that anyway, since Tiger Woods' weekend is already over.
My advice: stick to baseball this weekend. The hours are much friendlier. Here's the schedule, thanks to USA Today. Have a great weekend, everyone, and we'll see you around!
