  • One to sit in for: Ah, if it’s Sunday afternoon, it has to be the Dubs v Mayo in the second of this year’s All-Ireland SFC semi-finals. If their meeting in 2006 is anything to go by, you’ll be seeing this one on Reeling in the Years for a long time to come.
  • One to Sky-plus: US Ryder Cup captain Davis Love names his four wildcards on Tuesday so this weekend’s Deutsche Bank Championship is the last opportunity for those on the fringes to impress. It’s on in Massachusetts, so it won’t be too late at night, but if you’re heading out on Saturday hit the record button.
  • One to skip: The Burghley Horse Trials might be your cup of tea but it’s not going to change our plans for Sunday afternoon.
