Question of the Day
TWT FIVE - MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND TV PICKS
1. Indianapolis 500 (Sunday, Chs. 7, 2). IMS has been Danica Patrick’s best track since she emerged on the scene. She starts in Row 2, but Dan Wheldon will win his second 500.
2. Stanley Cup Finals (Saturday and Monday, Versus). The Pittsburgh-Detroit matchup is intriguing on a lot of levels. Penguins in six games.
3. Coca Cola 600 (Sunday, Chs. 5, 45). The 600-miler is the longest on the Sprint Cup circuit, testing every driver and every piece of equipment. Dale Earnhardt Jr. will break his winless streak.
4. Brewers-Nationals (Friday-Monday). Heading into a West Coast trip — including a series at Arizona — the Nationals need to have a good weekend. The teams will split the four games.
5. NBA conference finals. Spurs-Lakers/Pistons-Celtics. Don’t care enough to make a prediction. The games are completely boring.
