Tonight at 8:30, the St. Louis Rams will visit the New York Giants in the second game of the Monday Night Football season. Also tonight, in Indianapolis at 8:00, the Indiana Fever host the New York Liberty, in Game 3 of the WNBA Eastern Conference Semifinals (it's a 3-game series, so the winner will advance to the Conference Finals to face the Atlanta Dream).

I'd rather watch Ahmad Bradshaw's pre-workout workout than a women's basketball game."

Probably not. But I'll try.

This series features genuine star-power, in the form of the Fever's Tamika Catchings and Katie Douglas and the Liberty's Cappie Pondexter and Kia Vaughn, but we've dug a little bit beneath the surface for some New York-centric highlights.
