This video of St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright is a month old, but it only had a thousand or so views before Fox Sports Midwest posted it earlier today. And it doesn’t matter, because any time a professional athlete wears a mullet wig and sings, “Achy Breaky Heart” for charity, you have to celebrate it. Especially if it distracts you from the fact that his team is 9-12 since the All-Star Break, which has dropped them from the best record in baseball to 3 games back in the NL Central.

But I’m not keeping track or anything.

MLB: Cubs at Cardinals – 8:05 PM ET on WGN

I know that whining about a team with one of the five best records in baseball is bad, but I don’t care. I’m still classier and more intelligent than most whiners.

NFL Preseason: Patriots vs. Eagles – 7:30 PM ET on NFL Network

And you might have some local games available. I, for instance, will be punished by watching the Miami Dolphins tonight, because that is the team that I have chosen to hitch my eternal allegiance to. I hate sports.

Tennis: Rogers Cup Quarterfinals – 8 PM ET on ESPN 2

Meet me at the bar for this one, bros!

CFL: Saskatchewan at Calgary – 9 PM ET on NBC Sports

Johnny Manziel will be in attendance. Okay, maybe not. But he should be to see if the CFL “feels right” for next season.

Little League Baseball: West Regional Semifinal – 9 PM ET on ESPN 2

Still waiting on my call to the broadcast booth. I will make a sample tape if need be.

Boxing: Liakhovich-Wilder – 10 PM ET on Showtime

I’d rather watch The Great White Hype.
