HD Weekend Sports Outlook: 4/25 thru 4/27

AVP:R cover artWe have another great HDTV weekend on tap. Both the NBA and NHL playoffs are moving forward full speed ahead, but they pale in comparison to the must-see High Definition event of the year… the NFL Draft! Yes, boys and girls, its the once non-event that ESPN has twisted and turned and marketed into a broadcast of anti-Christ proportions. Make sure you tune in to see who your shitty team blows their first pick on this year.

The minor-league HD fare this weekend, compared the the playoffs and draft, include 3 baseball, 5 PGA and 2 HD NASCAR broadcasts.

The rest of the national HD schedule is as follows. Remember, all
