Weekend Watch – Play Ball!

We’re coming to the end of a crazy week in New England, and I think we’re all ready to sit back and enjoy some actual games on the field this weekend.

Leading things off are the Red Sox and Yankees who get together for a three game series at Fenway Park. The Red Sox lead the AL East by 5.5 games with 15 to play. The Yankees have won seven of the last nine games these teams have played coming into this series. Keep up with all the coverage on RedSoxLinks.com and the all new NYYankeesLinks.com.

The Patriots of course, are coming off a tumultuous week and likely look forward to getting out onto the field and hitting the opponent. Patriots Daily will have you covered all weekend, with a look at the college games, the Sunday papers and the Game Day Rear View. They’ve also got your food and beer covered with the Patriots Buffet Table.

NBCSports.com debuted a new weekly feature “Sunday Night Blogger” – and I’m pleased to be the first guest in the series. I talk with Cris Collinsworth about the Patriots controversy, as well as Patriots/Chargers.

Here are your TV Coverage Maps, CBS Early Game, CBS Late Game and Fox Single Game. Here also is your College Football TV Schedule.

Michael Silver says that the filming episode this week was the result of nothing more than a “petty, childish little feud” between Eric Mangini and Bill Belichick.

Bill Simmons weighs in on the punishment to the Patriots and makes his week two picks.

Sports Law Blog had a couple of good posts this week on the Patriots situation, one from Geoffrey Rapp and another from Michael McCann which looks at the opinion of Professor Alfred Yen of Boston College Law School.

Howard Bryant says that the stakes will be high this weekend at both Fenway Park and Gillette Stadium.

Chad Finn says that this week was just an exercise in arrogance all around.

That’s all I got for now…enjoy the weekend.
