Sports is back in full swing, and the Covid-19 delays have resulted in more sports than normal at this point. Once football returns in September, the schedule will go from crazy to absolutely ridiculous.
Here’s a look at what today’s television schedule looks like for North American sports plus UEFA Champions League. It starts at 10 a.m. ET with the PGA Championship teeing off, and wraps up with the puck dropping at 10:45 p.m. for the Vancouver Canucks vs. Minnesota Wild in Game 4 of their qualifying round series. We’ve separated out the baseball schedule because of the sheer volume of it.
Picture-in-picture and multiple televisions and computer screens can let the most die-hard of sports fans watch just about everything on this schedule, but you might need to pick and choose depending on your screen and/or work day limitations.
If you’re looking to watch golf today, we’ve got a full list of Friday tee times to sort through who you want to watch. Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Justin Thomas don’t tee off until 4:58 p.m. ET, so you’ve got some time if that’s your choice of the day.
Hockey is going to be a fun play today. We’ve got six qualifying round matchups playing Game 4, which means one team in each is on the verge of elimination in these five-game series. It could be a wild day of hockey, and the best recommendation is to start with Islanders-Panthers at noon.
This is normally just a North American sports schedule, but UEFA Champions League returns today and we get the second leg of two Round of 16 matches. Champions League is the highest level of professional soccer, and the second leg of any matchup can be a fun one. You can hop on the first half of each match at 3 p.m., and this would be where picture-in-picture or having a second screen would be perfect.
If one or both matches could come down to the wire, maybe you stick with them. If not, you can flip back for Game 4 of Penguins-Canadiens. That’ll get you to Tiger’s tee time at 4:58 p.m.
The best contest of the evening could be the Sparks and Aces in the WNBA. They are both 3-2 and part of a chunk of teams looking to challenge the Seattle Storm. Hockey will be worth a watch in the evening, but save some time for this matchup.
