Stuff To Tune In To And Zone Out On For August 28th

floydNFL Preseason Football. New England Patriots at Washington Redskins. If this doesn’t scream “It’s Friday Night! Party!”, I have no idea what does. [CBS, 8:00 ET]

High School Football. Aplington-Parkersburg (Iowa) vs. Dike-New Hartford (Iowa). ESPN is airing this to honor the death of slain high school football coach Ed Thomas, who coached Aplington-Parkersburg before he was tragically murdered. I’m just kidding – they are broadcasting the game to exploit his death, of course. [ESPN, 7:00 ET]

Boxing. Friday Night Fights. Randall Bailey vs. Juan Urango from Hollywood, Florida. When all else fails, watching two guys pound the shit out of each other always does the trick. [ESPN2, 10:00 ET]

Basic Cable Movie of the Night. Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Pretty kick ass movie, but like ESPN, I have the sneaking suspicion that Bravo is airing this to exploit the death of Edward Furlong. Huh? Nah. [Bravo, 7:00 ET]
