Stuff To Tune In To And Zone Out On For August 24th

floydNFL Preseason Football. New York Jets at Baltimore Ravens. I’m excited to watch the two coaching greats, Rich Kotite and Brian Billick, match wits. Should be a doozy. [ESPN, 8:00 ET]

MLB Baseball. Detroit Tigers of Michigan at the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Jim Leyland, nicotine withdrawals and baseball. Doesn’t get much better than this. [ESPN2, 10:00 ET]

Little League Baseball. World Series, Pool Play: Staten Island (N.Y.) vs. Urbandale (Iowa). I’m sorry, but Urbandale, Iowa? Does being “urban” in Iowa mean you have a stoplight and a Papa Murphy’s? [ESPN2, 8:00 ET]

Basic Cable Movie of the Night. Wild Hogs. Coincidently, that is also the title of something I wrote about my experiences one summer when my family’s cabin was across the lake from a fat camp for girls. I can still remember the smells wafting across the water. [FX, 8:00 ET]
