Mr. Flip's Tube Tips

June 30, 2008

Tennis

Wimbledon 7 a.m. [ESPN2]

What's the deal here? Venus and Serena Williams are playing their matches back-to-back on Court 2? To quote Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing, "Nobody puts Baby in the corner." (Coverage also at 10 a.m. on channels 11 and 4 and back on ESPN2 at 1 p.m.)

Swimming

U.S. Olympic trials 8 p.m. [USA]

Keep in mind that those high-tech swimsuits the competitors have on cost more than the suit you're wearing to work.

Music

100 Greatest Songs of the '90s 8 p.m. [VH1]

This is the last hour, when VH1 reveals the final 20. Mr. Flip hopes he's not spilling too many beans by mentioning No. 18 is Metallica's "Enter Sandman," which is Mariano Rivera's theme, so that qualifies as giving this show a sports connection. However, Mr. Flip couldn't figure out a sports reference for mentioning Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" at No. 6. But he mentioned it anyway.
