NFL

Broncos @Chargers

8 p.m. [ESPN]

A poor piece of scheduling here. This game should have been set in Denver. That way, we would have had a chance of seeing a game with snow on Christmas Eve.

Boxing

Classic Boxing

4 p.m. [ESPN2]

ESPN2 will be running a series of bouts from 4 p.m. until 4:30 a.m. Many could be called classic, some not so much (Mike Tyson-Jesse Ferguson?). Because nothing gets you in the Christmas spirit like watching two guys whale away on each other.

Movie

"Meet Me in St. Louis"

2:15 a.m. [TCM]

The sports connection? At one point, after Judy Garland learns her date will be unable to escort her to a ball because he has been playing basketball and couldn't get to the cleaners to pick up his suit, she says: "I don't hate you, I just hate basketball!"
