It's Monday and the team has another off-day. They are in Atlanta and busy meeting up with old friends. As for what fans should do, here are tonight's suggestions.
- Tampa Bay Rays at Boston Red Sox (7pm ET, ESPN): This matchup looked much better in January.
- Miami Heat at Atlanta Hawks (7pm ET, SunSports): Probably the best entertainment value, and an important game for the Heat as they try to hold on to the #2-seed.
- Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (7pm ET, Travel Channel): My good buddy Alex is always talking about this show. Now would be a good time to catch up since it's a marathon on tonight.
I read Michael Lewis' The Blind Side last week. There is no better nonfiction writer in America than Lewis, his skill at weaving together so many disparate threads into a compelling narrative is unparalleled, and his reporting chops are equally strong. Needless to say, I won't be seeing the movie.
This week's bonus recommendation is to travel. Of course it's a bit late to do it tonight, but perhaps plan some travel or a mini-vacation for a later date. Dave just went to Seattle to do some prep for his move in the fall and to see some family and I was jealous. Traveling is simply awesome, save for any logistical troubles like plane delays. Bonus points if you can afford to travel abroad!
