TODAY’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION

Even the most devout Redskins fans should be curious enough to tune into Hard Knocks, HBO’s training camp series that stars the Dallas Cowboys this summer. 10 p.m., HBO.

Newsmakers

Brett Favre

If ever an athlete needed his own television network — or at least a reality show — it’s the prodigal Packers QB.

Redeem Team

America’s Olympic men’s basketball team got its wake-up call with a tight tuneup against Australia.

Tiger Woods

As another major tees off without him this week, the injured superstar steals the spotlight with an ESPN interview.

Washington Redskins

A high-profile start to the season with two Hall of Famers and a preseason win in front of a raucous crowd.

Fights

Fielder vs. his pitcher, Steve Smith vs. one of his cornerbacks and Brock Lesnar gets another UFC shot on Saturday.

TWT FIVE: NEW NAMES ON THE 2009 HALL OF FAME BALLOT

1. Bruce Smith. Former Bills, Redskins star is the only first-ballot lock among the fresh faces.

2. Rod Woodson. Many would consider the speedy defensive back also to be a shoo-in.

3. Darren Woodson. Hard-hitting safety would be first defensive star from 1990s Cowboys.

4. Shannon Sharpe. Last tight end to go in was Ozzie Newsome in 1999.

5. Brian Mitchell. A real test case; the former Redskins returner owns many records.
