What to watch with no live sports: MLB Strikeout Saturday

It's been over two weeks without live sports now. Feels like six months.

Listen to your team news NOW.

If you haven’t lost all hope and resorted to books with no pictures, I’ve got viewing options to get you through the self-quarantine. Use them however you see fit: as a guide, a jumping-off point or even a gauge of what you should socially distance yourself from. Whatever helps.

Here are some ideas for Saturday, March 28:


The third season of Ozark dropped on Netflix Friday. If you’ve been keeping up with the show, you probably already know this. For those who’ve been waiting to get in, here’s the show’s original synopsis:

“A financial adviser drags his family from Chicago to the Missouri Ozarks, where he must launder money to appease a drug boss.”

Three seasons, 10 episodes per season at around an hour apiece.


Rocky Marathon starting at 3 p.m. over on AMC. Good time to start it, too. That way no one will stay up to watch Rocky V, which starts at 12:40 a.m. Tommy Gunn was the worst.

On demand, you can watch 10 Things I Hate About You on Disney+. It’s amazing how far movies have come since 1999. Still, how can you not love this movie?


At 2 p.m., ABC is broadcasting the Celtics-Lakers 30 for 30. This is focused on the height of the rivalry, and everything that surrounded it.

But if baseball is what you’re missing, ESPN has MLB Strikeout Saturday planned from noon to 8 p.m. You’ll get to see Roger Clemens in a Red Sox uniform, Kerry Wood and Randy Johnson at their best and Max Scherzer dicing up his old team.
