Major League Baseball is still on hold for a few more days (although TCN will air parts of Roy Halladay’s rehab sting in Clearwater tomorrow night at 7PM) and Summer League basketball isn’t exactly the most riveting of stuff (particularly when five or so of your top guys are sidelined) but the typically slowest sports day of the year gets a big bump this summer. At least in Philadelphia.
(At least hold your tired “but soccer’s not a sport!” until I’m finished)
The Union are, of course, hosting a pretty big semi-final contest in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup this evening down at PPL Park. And according to the Union’s website, you can tune in to watch it live at PhiladelphiaUnion.com.
There you have it. Now you will not be forced to watch the ESPYs.
Here’s Amy Fadool talking about the history of the Cup:
