The Week In Television


FRIDAY 6/6 > HBO 11:30 PM > On the Record with Bob Costas

dreaming. Harrison Ford and Bob (Mr. Baseball) Uecker stop by to
chat with Bob.

Chicago in the 1938 World Series. Finally, the payback chance

Arturo Gatti vs. Mickey Ward

Junior welterweights Ward (far right, 38-12, 27 KOs) and Gatti
(35-6, 25) split their first two bouts, which offered up 20 of
the most memorably brutal rounds in recent history. The rubber
match, in Atlantic City, promises to be just as riveting.

SATURDAY 6/7 > NBC 5:30 PM > The Belmont Stakes

He's a gelding, but Funny Cide at least has the first two jewels

in history to add the third.
