The Eternal Season - Monday August 29th

Good Evening TES Friends!  Evening, that means, the Monday is over!

Hope the week has started out well for you.  Your Monday night has football, baseball, soccer, and tennis for your viewing pleasure. 

To start with, more preseason football tonight, thanks to Irene which pushed this game back from Saturday afternoon.  It's the Jets v. Giants from the newly named Met Life Stadium.  This game is on NFL Network nationwide, and on NBC 4 here in the local market.  7:00 pm eastern. That will wrap up week 3 of the NFL preseason, next week the starters will go most of the way as the NFL season kicks off a week from Thursday.  Today is also the day that the first round of roster cut-downs occurs, so it's fried nerves time for obvious 3rd team and below players.  

Monday night gives us Phillies at Reds on ESPN at 7:00, with 12 other games on your local stations.  The Dodgers fell a run short in their effort to sweep Colorado out of town, San Diego rolls into LA tonight to begin a 3 game set.

The US Open has begun and already produced a major surprise, as Wimbledon champ and 5th seed Petra Kvitova was dumped in straight sets by Alexandra Dulgheru.  Yup, hadn't heard of her, either.  Tonight, an unseeded Venus Williams returns from injury to face Vensa Dolonts, and then Roger Federer begins to see if he still has what it takes (not likely, in the long run) against Santiago Giraldo.  Coverage also starts at 7:00 on ESPN2. 

Ok, all the soccer games for today have been completed.  I take that back.

The major highlight from Sunday was seeing the California kids win the Little League World Series with a base hit with two outs in the bottom of the 6th, to walk off with a 2-1 win.  A pitching duel, to finish what is generally an offensive minded tournament.  Congrats to the youngsters! 

And we finish up TES on Monday at 6:00 pm, which means that college football returns in 3 days, 0 hours, and 0 minutes.  Time to switch the countdown to hours!  Have a good night!
