Top Five Things to Do in Houston Sports This Weekend: Father's Day Edition
Another week behind us and another weekend of hot, humid Houston weather in front. Time to kick back in the air conditioning and watch some movies in the dark surrounded by ice packs and half a dozen oscillating fans. Now, that is how you spend a summer weekend. I'm sorry, what? Oh, this post is about sports. Hmmm, I guess watching the NBA Finals or PGA Golf or Major League Baseball on TV doesn't really count? Are we sure?

Alrighty then. For all the dads out there, you should demand what I outlined above, at least for Sunday, but if you are one of those "active fathers," then perhaps the following might be for you.
5. Galveston Qualifier for the Bud Light Texas Volleyball Championship

Now, we're talking spectator sports. A bunch of hot volleyball chicks in bikinis...what, there are dudes too? So, is it going to be like that scene in Top Gun that had less than vaguely homoerotic overtones? You know the one, set to "Playing With the Boys"? Well, I guess dads can manage if there are some ladies thrown in there as well and for our awesome gay dads out there, something for you too!
4. Sugar Land Skeeters vs. Camden Riversharks
Friday, 7:05 p.m.; Saturday, 6:05 p.m.; Sunday, 6:05 p.m.
Constellation Field, Sugar Land
I'm not going to lie, the thought of river sharks scares the holy hell out of me. I've heard that bull sharks can survive in fresh water and have been found more than 100 miles upstream in the Mississippi River attacking cattle. COME ON, SHARKS! Don't you scare us enough roaming around the ocean like perfect killing machines? So, I can honestly say that I have more than the usual motivation to pull for the Skeeters this weekend. Of course, Skeeters carry West Nile virus. DAMN YOU, NATURE!
