Most sports fans will spend most of today watching the two NFL conference championships, plus the pregame and postgame shows.
But there are folks who don’t care to watch football, even if the 49ers are playing for a spot in the Super Bowl on Feb. 2. We know, it’s heresy, but it’s true.
Here are seven other options on TV today:
• Kings at Oklahoma City, 4 p.m., CSNCA: Yes, it’s an obvious first choice. The Thunder is one of the best teams in the Western Conference, so this will be a big challenge for the Kings. Plus, it’s their fourth road game in six nights.
• PGA Humana Challenge, noon, GOLF: Tiger Woods isn’t playing, but the scenery is always great in La Quinta. And, well, it’s golf, one of the most popular sports to watch on TV.
• Australian Open, 4 p.m., TENNIS, and 6 p.m., ESPN2: Play is into the round of 16, and with a break in the weather, they’re finally talking about tennis and not the heat.
• Soccer, Manchester United at Chelsea, 7:55 a.m., NBCSN: With the World Cup five months away, isn’t it time to brush up on the beautiful game? Also, you can practice screaming, “GOAAAALLLL!”
• “88 and 1,” 5 p.m., ESPN2: College basketball fans should enjoy this one-hour special on Notre Dame’s 71-70 upset of UCLA in 1974 that ended the Bruins’ 88-game winning streak. And, it was Bill Walton’s first college loss.
• “The Shawshank Redemption,” 4:30 p.m., Spike: You can’t go wrong with one of the best movies ever made. Plus, Tim Robbins was a pitcher in “Bull Durham,” so there’s a sports connection, even if it’s a bit of a stretch.
• “Brady Bunch” marathon, 1:30 p.m., TV Land: If you don’t like the Patriots’ Tom Brady, you can watch Mike, Carol and their six kids for nearly five hours.
