Shaw Media sports copy editor Kevin Murphy picks his top sports events to watch this weekend:
MUST SEE TV
Golf: Masters Tournament, final round, at Augusta, Ga., 1 p.m. Sunday, CBS
That’s the only person I want at the top of the leaderboard at the end of the week.
Sports need their superstars.
And Tigers Woods fulfills that requirement.
Call me selfish.
It’s the same reason I want to see Serena Williams and Roger Federer win tennis tournaments.
Golf needs Woods to be No. 1 and winning majors.
I hope he wins.
Hockey: Blackhawks at St. Louis, 11:30 a.m. Sunday, NBC
Meet me in Saint Louis.
While I don’t see this rivalry as bitter as Hawks and Detroit Red Wings or Cardinals-Cubs (for you St. Louis enthusiasts), it’s still a classic.
As Shaw Media sports columnist Tom Musick said in his column the other day, the Blues’ recent revival has pumped some life into an Interstate-55 showdown.
After this game on Sunday, the Hawks will have seven games left in the regular season, with a regular-season finale at the Blues on April 27.
SET THE DVR
Pro basketball: Bulls at Miami, noon, Sunday, ABC
How do the Bulls lose to Washington and lose at home against Toronto and then go snap the New York Knicks’ 13-game winning streak?
Admittedly, it’s been a frustrating season to watch with Nate Robinson running the show with Derrick Rose on the sidelines, but it’s been a blast to watch, too.
All Robinson did was drop 35 points on the Knicks the other night, and it’s fun to watch the little guy walk around with so much swagger.
Plus, watching him feed Jimmy Butler for so many thunderous dunks this season, you can’t help enjoy yourself watching the Bulls for the rest of the regular season.
CATCH THE HIGHLIGHTS LATER
Baseball: White Sox at Cleveland, noon, Sunday, CSN
The Sox dropped a tough series out in Washington.
Hopefully, they’ll have better luck as they continue their 10-game road trip.
College football, Michigan spring game, 8 p.m. today, BTN
The Wolverines will play their spring football game earlier in the day.
Locals on the Michigan roster include Marmion graduates Ryan and Graham Glasglow and St. Francis graduate Kyle Bosch.
