So much is going on this weekend! The World Cup is finally here and the Rangers are clicking on all cylinders! Hey it was only the Mariners but a series win is a series win. Let's start off with the World Cup.


No FC Dallas this week but we do have some exciting soccer to look forward to. USA takes on England this Saturday on what has been billed by many as the most anticipated matchup the US has ever had. Winning  this match would go a long ways in qualifying for the next round as the two other countries, Algeria and Slovenia, are much weaker sides.

Rangers coming off a very impressive series win over the M

ariners head out to Milwaukee this weekend. This will be the first time the Rangers play at Miller Park. The Brewers who have been competitive the past few years have really disappointed this year. This is a great opportunity to add some distance between the second place Angels.

Movie of the Weekend

After a nice long weekend of sports watching what could be better than sitting even further back on your couch and catching the greatness that is Tom Hanks with Leonardo DiCaprio. This movie is about a man (Leo) who outsmarts the FBI by changing identities. It is based on a true story.

June 13 Catch Me if You Can 4:00pm TBS
