What to watch with no live sports: 3 Games to Glory

Losing live sports has been an odd adjustment. But, as everyone knows, we’re in uncharted territory.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Still, we all need something to help pass the time. And there are a lot of options out there.

You can read. Board and video games are options. Maybe crocheting?

Personally, I’m going to rewatch and catch up on shows and movies. With there being so much to sift through on these streaming services and even regular old cable, settling on something can seem overwhelming.

Here are some recommendations for Saturday, March 14:


I will be stunned if I don’t go back and watch a handful of Park and Rec episodes throughout this extended period without live sports. If nothing else, I’ll go back and watch any of the Ron v. Tammy episodes.

If you haven’t watched the show already, I highly recommend it. Pretty much everyone who I know that’s watched The Office likes Parks and Rec. Some like it more, some less.

This is not something you’ll get through in a day, but you will try to once you get rolling.


Hopefully, some of you caught Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri last night. It was on FXM — don’t go searching there now, or FX and FXX for that matter. They went in a completely different direction Saturday with Ted 2, Ride Along 2, Men in Black III and Hangover III. Maybe you’re into that kind of stuff — I know I like some bad TV and movies — but I’m not recommending those anytime soon.

Instead, it might be a good idea to treat yourself with a flashback to simpler times. Every Patriots fan has to have at least one of the 3 Games to Glory DVDs. You get sports, great moments and it’s Tom Brady content that isn’t related to his future.


There’s a Rambo marathon on Sundance. But the layout a little odd. First Blood starts at 3 p.m., then Rambo: First Blood Part II comes on right after. Then they go back to the top and Rambo III doesn’t come on until 11 p.m. And 2008’s Rambo is not on the slate.

But, if you really feel like doing absolutely nothing for the entire day, SyFy is airing the first four Harry Potter movies starting at 10:30 a.m. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire concludes at 12:30 a.m., just in time for Futurama.

Freeform is also showing all the Twilight movies on Saturday, starting at 11:30 a.m. — if that’s your jam.
