NBC Sports is switching up its broadcast schedule for the Stanley Cup Final.

In recent years, Games 1 and 2 had been on NBC, with Games 3 and 4 on cable partner NBCSN. If necessary, the final three games returned to NBC.

This season, Monday’s Game 1 will air on NBC, but Wednesday’s Game 2 will be on NBCSN. NBC Sports announced Friday that if the series between Pittsburgh and San Jose is tied 1-1, Game 3 will be on NBC, putting that pivotal matchup on the main network. Game 4 would be on NBCSN.

But if one team leads 2-0, Game 3 will air on NBCSN, with a possible championship-clinching Game 4 on NBC. The potential final three games will remain on NBC.

Series schedule (all times ET)
Game 1: Sharks at Penguins (Monday, May 30, 8 p.m.)
Game 2: Sharks at Penguins (Wednesday, June 1, 8 p.m.)

Major League Baseball

 

When you’re checking the daily standings to see if a team is still on pace to possibly surpass the all-time single-season record for wins, that’s a pretty good indicator that said team has done nothing yet to relinquish its top spot in the weekly rankings. The Cubs took two of three against the Cardinals before sweeping the Phillies, and they are on pace to win precisely 114.75 games this year. Rounded up, they’re a game off the Mariners’ record-setting 2001 pace of 116 wins. They are the easy pick for the FANFOOD #1 Team in the MLB.

The gap in the National League West is widening, thanks to a relentless push by the Giants that has resulted in 15 wins in 17 games. The pitching was carrying them through most of May, but the offense sprung to life in the past week, outscoring opponents 33-18 in series wins over the Padres and Rockies. Buster Posey single-handedly padded those numbers on Saturday, hitting a pair of three-run homers to cap a six-RBI day. It wouldn’t surprise me to see them push the Cubs out of the top spot this summer, Chicago is in some uncharted territory.

Chances are, the AL East will be a close race between at least three teams, with all five having a realistic chance to at least be in the mix down the stretch. But with almost two months in the books, the Red Sox are still chugging along, thanks to, as usual, their phenomenal offensive production. Their pitching is actually just in the middle of the AL pack in terms of ERA (4.21) and WHIP (1.31), so the question will be, can they keep pace in the division if/when the offense comes back to Earth a bit? My heart says no but my head says yes.

 

Here are the FANFOOD TOP 10 Teams in the MLB heading into June:

 

  1. Cubs
  2. Giants
  3. Red Sox
  4. Mariners
  5. Nationals
  6. Mets
  7. Pirates
  8. Rangers
  9. Indians
  10. Dodgers

U.S. Open Golf Championship

Thursday, June 16 to Sunday, June 19

Oakmont Country Club

northeast of Pittsburgh

Opened in 1903, the Oakmont Country Club has hosted more golf championships than any other any other course in the U.S., including eight United States Opens, three PGA Championships, and two U.S. Women’s Opens.

 

About the US Open

Rising from humble beginnings, the first US Open was a nine-hole course, one-day tournament played on October 4, 1895 in Newport, Rhode Island. The winner? British player Horace Rawlins who received a whopping $150 in prize money and a gold medal. Over the decades, the US Open has emerged to become one of the four majors offering prize money topping $1 million for the winner who also enjoys a much more secure spot in the profession including an automatic invitation to play in the Masters, the British Open and the PGA Championship.

While the US Open has been dominated by American players over the years, the tournament has seen a notable spate of non-American winners between 2004-2007 including South African Retief Goosen (2004), New Zealander Michael Campbell (2005), Australian Geoff Ogilvy (2006) and Argentine Ángel Cabrera (2007).

In 2010, Graeme McDowell became the first Irishman to win the event and the first European to take the title since British player Tony Jacklin won in 1970. Another Irishman — 22-year-old Rory McIlroy — walked away with the championship at 268 to break the U.S. Open record by four shots in 2011.

And, just to add to the drama — it was a relative unknown, American pro Webb Simpson, who won one stroke to take his first major championship victory in 2012. In 2013, Justin Rose won his first major title, two strokes ahead of runners-up Jason Day and Phil Mickelson, to became the first player from England to win the U.S. Open since Tony Jacklin in 1970.

 

2015 recap

Last year, it was 21-year-old American Jordan Spieth — fresh off his victory at the Masters Tournament — who won becoming the youngest player ever to hold both the Masters and U.S. Open titles in the same year.

 

 

In between visits to two first-time sites, the U.S. Open will return to its most-visited venue. Oakmont, located outside Pittsburgh, will host its record ninth U.S. Open dating to 1927.

Mike Davis, the USGA’s executive director, considers Oakmont the quintessential U.S. Open course, one that requires little pre-championship fiddling aside from, as members love to tell guests, a softening of its greens.

Because the U.S. Open was held at a first-time venue last year (Chambers Bay) and will be held at another (Erin Hills in Wisconsin) next year, Oakmont offers a slight respite. With eight championships upon which to draw, including the most recent in 2007, the USGA can bring a fairly consistent gameplan to the week.

“I really do believe this is the one golf course in the United States that, if we had to make a call one to two weeks before the U.S. Open and say, ‘We’re in a pinch, can you host the national Open Championship?’ this place could do it,” Davis said.

Little wonder, then, that Oakmont’s setup will mirror that of 2007. The yardages, green speeds, rough heights and fairway widths essentially will be the same as they were nine years ago, Davis said.

Once again, Oakmont will feature several drivable par 4s on certain days, in addition to one par 3 (the 288-yard 8th hole) that could play longer than a par 4 (the 17th).

Only a few minor architectural changes, made by the club separate from the championship, will be on display. The USGA’s primary adjustment was to cut some of the rough between fairways and bunkers, which will encourage balls to roll into the sand instead of stop on a steep hillside.

As a result, and depending on weather, Oakmont could produce another above-par winner. Angel Cabrera claimed the 2007 title at 5-over par, completing a brutal week on a course that played hard and quick following a weekend of dry weather.

Prior to the 2007 U.S. Open, Geoff Ogilvy predicted that some players might shoot in the 90s. Though that didn’t happen, the course yielded few low scores — which normally has been the case.

Just eight of the 436 scores recorded that year were in the 60s. Cabrera had two of them: first- and fourth-round 69s. In eight U.S. Opens at Oakmont, only 23 players have finished 72 holes under par.

Of course, Oakmont also produced the U.S. Open’s seminal round: Johnny Miller’s 8-under 63 in 1973. That remains the only 8-under-par round in U.S. Open history.

“It’s also been said that, and maybe somewhat in jest — I guess I hope so in jest — when USGA comes to town, Oakmont must cut the rough, must slow down the greens, and utilize easier hole locations,” Davis said. “I’m not so sure that that’s not a little bit of a stretch, but you get the drift here. This place loves a tough championship setup.”

And those setups have produced muscular winners. Oakmont’s list of champions includes Ernie Els, Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and Sam Snead. Its runners-up include Snead, Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson and Tiger Woods.

Unlike Chambers Bay’s dunescape setting, Oakmont’s layout is rather simple. Sixteen of the holes essentially are straight. Where Oakmont again will frustrate players is on the greens.

“They better bring their putter,” Nathan Smith, a renowned amateur golfer from Pittsburgh, said at Oakmont’s media day last week. That sentiment was common in 2007, when players putted so cautiously on the overly fast greens.

Davis called those greens Oakmont’s signature and legacy. At the 1935 U.S. Open, players complained so fiercely about the greens that some threatened not to play. The Stimpmeter, which measures green speeds, traces its roots to the 1935 U.S. Open.

Oakmont celebrates as a club motto a saying attributed to architect W.C. Fownes: “A shot poorly played should be a shot irrevocably lost.” Davis predicted that the motto will apply again.

“And I genuinely think there’s some members here at Oakmont that still have that mindset,” Davis said. “It’s a great culture.”

The 148th running of the Belmont Stakes will be televised live on Saturday, June 11, 2016, with complete coverage on NBC beginning at 5 PM ET with post time set for 6:30PM ET.

The last and most demanding (1-1/2 mile) jewel in the Triple Crown, the Belmont race is also known as “The Test of the Champion” for the gruelling physical toll it takes on 3-year-old horses and the critical pacing and timing demanded of skilled jockeys.

Hey…this is the Big Apple – and In the final showdown only the smartest and strongest survive.

The lineup of major contenders at the Belmont stakes traditionally hang on the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, and how well horses perform in those two races.

Over the years major spoilers have occurred at Belmont where anything can happen to the “flavor of the month” who shows promise of taking home the big prize.

 

This year, the official Belmont post positions, morning line odds, and selected jockeys will be announced live from Belmont Park on Wednesday, June 8, 2016.

Wimbledon

 

June 27 – July 9

 

This year’s official schedule at Wimbledon kick offs Monday, June 27 and leads up to the women’s final on Saturday, July 9 and men’s final on Sunday, July 10, 2016.

The Championships, Wimbledon, commonly known simply as Wimbledon, is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and is widely considered the most prestigious. It has been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London since 1877. It is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments, the others being the Australian Open, the French Open and the US Open. Since the Australian Open shifted to hardcourt in 1988, Wimbledon is the only major still played on grass. Wimbledon traditions include a strict dress code for competitors, the eating of strawberries and cream by the spectators, and Royal patronage. The tournament is also notable for the absence of sponsor advertising around the courts. In 2009, Wimbledon’s Centre Court was fitted with a retractable roof to lessen the loss of playing time due to rain.

24 Hours of Le Mans

 

June 18 – 19

 

 

The greatest endurance race in the world, which is also the third round of the FIA World Endurance Championship, will take place on 18-19 June 2016

Begun in 1923, the historic race is annually sponsored by Automobile Club de l’Ouest and takes place at the Circuit de la Sarthe near Le Mans, France.

Today, qualifying races which take place on Europe’s most prestigious circuits help to determine which cars are selected for 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Le Mans 24 Hours has proven to be a very popular export with the rise of the American Le Mans Series, and the Japan Le Mans Series, both which help sustain the ideals of endurance and technological achievement in their respective national equivalents.

 

 

At 24 Hours of Le Mans, automotive expertise and determination combine to provide a showcase for endurance, technological achievement, as well as plain, old-fashioned race car thrills.

This year marks Le Mans’ 83rd anniversary, with all the action revving up on Saturday, June 13 and continuing to Sunday, June 14, 2015 airing live before an expected TV audience of millions.

With the race broadcast on 100 TV networks worldwide, Motors TV usually covers the race in 32 European countries, beaming it into 16 million homes in four languages with hours of coverage over the 2-day racing marathon.

In the U.S., SPEED TV traditionally features 24 Hours of Le Mans on demand at their Web site and on cable beginning Saturday morning.

National Donut Day

 

June 3rd

 

 

 

 

 

Happy National Donut Day!

Every first Friday in June, donut lovers all rise to celebrate a wonderful circle of sweet, doughy goodness that has a day set aside ‘holey’ in its honor.

This year, mark your calendars for Friday, June 3rd, when Americans everywhere kick back and enjoy a frosty one on National Donut Day 2015.

National Donut Day fun facts

Who gets the first donut? Some historians can trace the donut back to a fried treat served by New Yorkers during 18th century Dutch colonial days.

Donut citing: The first-ever written mention of the donut was made in 1809 when American writer Washington Irving immortalized them as “balls of sweetened dough, fried in hog’s fat, and called doughnuts…”

The first Donut Day? The very first National Donut Day was instituted by the Salvation Army to honor the “donut Lassies” who had kept American soldiers in Europe well-supplied with donuts during World War I. (So if an army marches on its stomach – did the humble donut really help win the war? Possibly.)

America’s favorite? Today, Entenmann’s remains the largest donut-maker in the United States, producing more than 40 million boxes a year. The company’s rich frosted chocolate donut has been the #1 best seller since its introduction in 1972.

How to celebrate National Donut Day

As usual, watch for national donut chains like Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme occupying battle stations on National Donut Day, with competitive offers and free donuts to lure in customers in a celebratory mood.

That said, National Donut Day can be celebrated in any way you choose. As long as it’s glazed, powdered, chocolate or plain! Colored sprinkles are extra festive on this hole-iest of holidays, or try mixing it up with morale-boosting Bavarian or Boston Creme.

1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt

3. Mix in melted butter until dry ingredients become crumbly.
4. Stir in milk and beaten egg.
5. Flour your hands and begin to knead the dough until firm and smooth.
6. Turn dough out onto a floured board and flatten down to 3/8 inch thickness.
