Tour de France

Noon, Versus

This stage actually starts in Belgium. It’s Europe. Can anybody tell the difference?

Red Sox First-Half Marathon

1:30 p.m., NESN

Your second chance to watch the six-run comeback versus Baltimore, Curt Schilling’s near no-hitter and a random walk-off home run by David Ortiz. Oops, almost forgot: He hasn’t hit one.

Softball: All-Star Legends & Celebrity Game

2 p.m., ESPN2

Among the “legends” are former Giants Matt Williams, J.T. Snow, Robby Thompson, Robb Nen and Kevin Mitchell. What, Rick Reuschel and Steve Decker weren’t available?

WNBA: Chicago at Detroit

7 p.m., ESPN2

FOX should send a special Christmas card this year to thank the Worldwide Leader for this throw-in-the-towel counter programming. Poker, Pool or World’s Strongest Man would have stolen more viewers.

All-Star Game

8 p.m., FOX

Every team gets a representative. Everybody plays. Kind of like the Cal Ripken state tournament on creatine.

Movie: Any Given Sunday

8 p.m., FX

Pretty good escapist fare if you’re dying for a dose of football.

WNBA: Indiana at Houston

9 p.m., ESPN2

Yes, a doubleheader! Who says July is the worst month for sports?
