Open Thread, “What To Watch This Weekend” Edition

It’s right around the 1st, which means it’s time for our monthly open thread. Thank you for that kind introduction, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. (And a tip o’ the pen to first of the month expert/pal Marc for video inspiration.)

My question for everyone is this: How are you dealing with the dueling Saturday televised cards? Both the “Lightweight Lightning” pay-per-view — Edwin Valero-Antonio Pitalua headlining — and Showtime event — junior welterweights Timothy Bradley and Kendall Holt — start at 9 p.m. We’ll have previews of both cards later this week.

But that’s just starter dough, as we say in the journalism biz. Use this open thread as an excuse to ask or opine about anything that’s on your mind.
