Arm Wrestling World Championships

1 p.m., ESPN

Only marginally more “sport” than the spelling bee.

MLB: Braves at Cubs

2 p.m., TBS

The team actually kept its promise not to play all night games after putting lights in Wrigley Field almost 20 years ago. What a concept.

PGA: The Memorial Tournament

3 p.m., The Golf Channel

So does this mean we all get Monday off?

Yachting: Louis Vuitton Cup

6:30 p.m., Versus

Determines the challenger in the America’s Cup final. So it’s like watching the NFC playoffs. If you’re a retired, millionaire attorney without any family history of narcolepsy.

MLB: Yankees at Red Sox

7 p.m., NESN

Funniest part of this AL East blitzkrieg: The Sox are almost done playing their 63 divisional games against the Yankees and haven’t even sniffed the Devil Rays yet.

WWF: Friday Night SmackDown

8 p.m., WPXT

Don’t give me that look. It’s not like there’s an NBA or NHL game on tonight. And wrestling would exceed their combined Nielsen share if they did.

NASCAR: Craftsman Truck Series 200

8:30 p.m., Speed

In golfing terms, these are the guys who didn’t make it through Q-school.
