There are so many sports every weekend that it can be nearly impossible to keep track of them all. Here is a weekly guide to the five games/events/experiences that you will be in danger of missing if you make the mistake of going outside.

1. One more crazy night in Nashville. Regardless of how the Stanley Cup Final turns out, the breakout stars have been the fans at Bridgestone Arena, who have introduced themselves to the rest of the hockey world with ear-splitting fervor. The Finals will make their last stop in Tennessee for Game 6 between the Penguins and the Predators Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. The Penguins are up 3-2 and trying to win their second consecutive Cup, and their fourth-ever; the Predators just want to force a Game 7 on Wednesday night. (Which would be a blast.) There is no atmosphere in sports quite like the one in Nashville right now. It might not be ever quite this nuts again.

2. More horsies! All right, so maybe not that many people care about the Belmont Stakes when there is no horse going for the Triple Crown. But when I lived in New York, I found the Belmont a much more attractive destination when there wasn't a Triple Crown at stake. The trains out there are less crowded, the beer lines are shorter and the stakes are just less intense. You can just sit and drink and bet on horses and relax in the sunshine; it should be a nice weekend in New York too. This one is as low-stakes as it gets; neither the Kentucky Derby nor the Preakness winner will be in this race. So just Belmont and Chill at 6:37 p.m. ET Saturday on NBC.

4. All right, Rockies, let's see what you've got. Believe in the Rockies yet? After their 5-3 win over the Cubs on Friday -- their sixth win in a row -- they took a three-game lead in the NL West and look sort of legit. Joe Sheehan wrote in his newsletter this week that the key to the Rockies' success has been infield defense. Whatever it is, no one wants to play them right now. You can watch them take on the defending champs again at 2:20 p.m. ET Saturday and Sunday on

5. No NBA Finals, so … how about USMNT? The Cavaliers gave us at least something to get excited about -- and thwarted the Warriors' attempt to become the first team to win every one of its playoff games -- by beating the Golden State in Game 4 on Friday night. That does not, alas, mean we're getting any NBA Finals games this weekend: Game 5 is slated for 9 p.m. in Oakland on Monday. So let's commit then to the USMNT, which beat Trinidad & Tobago 2-0 on Thursday in a must-win World Cup qualifying match. They have a much tougher assignment on Sunday at 8:30 p.m. ET on FS1, playing rival Mexico at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. It's a notoriously difficult place for the USMNT to play -- they've never won there -- but USMNT's 18 year-old phenom Christian Pulisic said after the game on Thursday that "we're gonna get a win," and we'll follow that guy into hell.
