    The 141st Kentucky Derby

    Saturday, 6:25PM Post time

    The 141st Kentucky Derby is Saturday. One of the best sporting events of the year. The first race for the Triple Crown is a must watch. The Run for the Roses is likely to be very competitive. Experts say this years field is one of the deepest in recent memory.

    Floyd Mayweather, Jr. VS. Manny Pacquiao

    Saturday 9PM

    The bout between Floyd 'Money' Mayweather, Jr. and Manny 'Pac-Man' Pacquiao is billed as the Fight of the Century. This battle has been a long time coming, and finally it's here. Mayweather is an undefeated five division world champion and Pacquiao is an eight division world champion. Obviously, this is a pay per view event, but if you're a boxing fan, it might be worth the hundred bucks.

    The NFL Draft

    Thursday 8PM--Saturday

    I usually watch the first ten picks, then just pay attention to who the Patriots select. At this point there doesn't seem to be a runaway number 1 pick, so I'm interested to see what the Buccaneers do, and we'll find out what happens from there. Round 1 is Thursday night, Rounds 2 and 3 are on Friday, and 4 through 7 are on Saturday.

    NBA Playoffs

    All Weekend

    The NBA Playoffs are still in the first round which means we will see some elimination games this weekend. Again, still exciting to watch even if the team you root for has been eliminated. Two games a day, all weekend long.
