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. There’s a lot 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 out there to consume on these streaming services and even regular old cable, it can seem overwhelming.

Here are some recommendations for Monday, March 16:


If you have Hulu or YouTube TV, then you have Friday Night Lights at your disposal. I have not watched this, but it is one of those all-time shows everyone likes. And for sports fans, this will help you get your fix for a few days. Twenty-two episodes in the first season, 15 in the second and 13 in each of the last three.


If you’re stuck at home all day, then Freeform has the perfect movie scheduled for you at 11 a.m. The 1986 classic, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

An on-demand option — if you have HBO and didn’t get enough of Bill Belichick during ESPN’s re-airing of The Two Bills on Sunday — is Belichick & Saban: The Art of Coaching.


If you’re looking for some basketball, ESPN Classic and ESPNU has non-stop college basketball playing all day. ESPN 2 will also air some, starting at 6 p.m.

For a little levity, check out truTV. They have Impractical Jokers on from 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m., then again from 5 p.m.-10 p.m.


There are so many highlight reels out there. Here are about 18 minutes of Pedro Martinez absolutely dealing:

If you don’t have time for the whole reel, here are the 17 strikeouts from his one-hitter against the Yankees in 1999:
