? NHL Western Conference Finals
ESPN 7:30 PM
Volvo. Ingrid Bergman. IKEA. Add Peter Forsberg (page 46) to the list of popular Swedish imports. At least in Colorado. The Ornskoldsvik native, who has shifted from center to left wing of late, led the Avalanche in playoff goals with five as they headed into Game 1 of a rematch of last season's Western Conference finals against Dallas.
? NBA Conference Semifinals
NBC 12:30 PM, 3 PM AND 5:30 PM
Questions, as we settle in to watch a tripleheader of second-round Game 4 matchups: Will the Suns continue to play Harpo Marx at point guard as they battle the Lakers? Is it just a coincidence that former Bulls Ron Harper (Lakers), Toni Kukoc (Sixers), Luc Longley (Suns) and Scottie Pippen (Trail Blazers) reached their respective conference semis? Finally, will the Heat- Knicks series be officiated by Richard Dawson or Mills Lane? Those series going more than four games will continue during the week on TBS and TNT.
?Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel
HBO 10 PM
Shortly after Kramer was bounced from a Yankees fantasy camp for beaning Joe Pepitone and punching Mickey Mantle in an ensuing brawl, George Costanza whined of his carefree Seinfeld pal, "His whole life is a fantasy camp!" Tonight correspondent and SI senior contributing writer Frank Deford joins real-life Kramers who travel to Tampa and pony up $4,300 to receive tips such as this fielding nugget from former major league outfielder Elliott Maddox: "As the ball's coming down, if you have any question about judgment, get the f—- out of the way!" The show gets more serious when profiling the Spurs' Sean Elliott, who returned to the NBA after a kidney transplant, and Flyers coach Roger Neilson, who's battling an incurable cancer.
?Giants at Braves
TBS 7:35 PM
When it comes to designating the best arms on TV, we're not going out on a limb when we nominate those of Ileana Douglas, the sleeveless, sloe-eyed, sometime host of VH-1's The List. Our second choice: Atlanta's. The Braves (page 50) have an army of arms in Tom Glavine (5-0 through Sunday), Greg Maddux (4-1) and Kevin Millwood (3-1), against whom hitters were batting a combined .231. Maddux and Glavine beat San Francisco on consecutive nights at Turner Field last month.
? Roy Jones Jr. vs. Richard Hall
HBO 9 PM
Is this the Rich Hall who used to be the droll "Weekend Update" anchor on Saturday Night Live? The Hall who was the monotonal monitor of sniglets—words that aren't in the dictionary but should be—and coiner of such terms as otisosis (the inability to make eye contact in an elevator)? Well, no. This Richard Hall (24-1) is a lanky 28-year-old from Jamaica whose last five foes fell in three rounds or fewer. Tonight he faces 31-year-old Jones (41-1), who owns the undisputed world light heavyweight championship and perhaps boxing's fastest fists. Hall may well fall victim to everlasteria: the panic that envelops you when you realize it's too late to avoid a K0 punch.
