? Indians at Yankees
FOX 1 PM
Baseball fans, it's time to become one with the game-update bar at the top of the screen. Know it, love it, cherish it, for you're going to be spending the next six years looking at it. After signing a $2.5 billion contract, Fox has the rights to the diamond dandies: the Saturday Game of the Week, the All-Star Game and the World Series. The network's 2001 coverage begins at Yankee Stadium, with a return engagement: The Yankees took two of three from the Tribe at Jacobs Field last weekend.
? Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4
ABC 8 PM
After losing in two successive conference finals, the Avalanche this year exorcised that demon and now must overcome the defending-champion Devils. Center Joe Sakic and Colorado hope to follow up on their 5-0 Game 1 victory (page 60).
? NBA Playoffs
NBC 7:30 PM
Today we'll see an Eastern Conference finals Game 7, if necessary, in Philadelphia between the 76ers and the Bucks. NBA Finals games are scheduled for Wednesday and Friday on NBC at 9 p.m. The call here is that the Finals will be as short as Prince without elevator shoes. The Lakers' Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant will win their second rings, thus creating the perfect dynasty for Michael Jordan to challenge next season in a Justice League of America-type showdown. Just imagine: His Airness and his creaky cronies (maybe Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing) pitted against Shaq (and his Superman tattoo), Kobe and the medusa-tressed Rick Fox.
SATURDAY 6/2-SUNDAY 6/3
CBS SATURDAY 3 PM, SUNDAY 2 PM
After coming back from 10 strokes down to win the Deutsche Bank-SAP Open on May 20, Tiger Woods (above) said he was looking forward to "relaxing, [doing] a little bit of fishing and then playing in the Memorial," the Tour event at Jack Nicklaus's Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, that he won by five strokes over Ernie Els and Justin Leonard last year. Sounds innocent enough, but we can only imagine what the ultracompetitive Woods's To Do List looks like. Some possible entries: 1) challenge Mark O'Meara to a relaxing contest; 2) catch all fish that dare swim near my lure; 3) this time, win Memorial by at least 10 strokes; and 4) if there's still time, whip my buddy Michael Jordan at Yahtzee.
ALL TIMES EASTERN. SCHEDULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
