World Bodysurfing Championships
It can be a rough sport, pilgrim: In 1926 Marion Morrison, a tackle on the USC football team, tore ligaments in his shoulder while bodysurfing, ending his athletic career. So Morrison took up acting and became John Wayne. More than 250 latter-day tough guys (and gals) are entered in this two-day event in San Diego, including 68-year-old former Redskins and Chargers general manager Bobby Beathard.
The short list of contenders for the top amateur golf title includes a List who's not so short off the tee: Luke List (right), the Vanderbilt junior who in April topped the Masters field in average driving distance (305.9 yards). In the 36-hole championship matchup at last year's Amateur, List led Ryan Moore 2 up after 32 holes before Moore came back to win the final four holes and the title. This year's tournament is at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa. NBC 4 p.m.
Little League World Series Championship Game
O.K., Tom Hanks was wrong--there is crying in baseball. Exhibit A: the Little League championship game between the U.S. winners and the top international squad in Williamsport, Pa. Hardly a year goes by when the 11- and 12-year-olds from the losing team don't wind up in tears. Lately, the Americans have been the ones doing the blubbering: They've won just two of the last 11 titles. ABC 3:30 p.m.
