Indy 500 (noon, Ch. 5)

Can we still call it ‘‘The Great­est Spec­ta­cle in Rac­ing’’ in good con­science if hun­dreds of thou­sands of fans aren’t milling about In­di­anapo­lis Mo­tor Speed­way to drink it in? No mat­ter, it’s 200 laps, 500 miles and a bot­tle of milk for the hope­ful­ly­not-lac­tose-in­tol­er­ant winner. If you’re bet­ting at home, con­sider that the last four driv­ers to take the check­ered flag in this event did so for the first time.

White Sox at Cubs (1:20 p.m., MSN, NBCSCH)

Not that this ri­valry has gone stale, but it isn’t quite at the level of ran­cor that it was in 2006, when Sox catcher A.J. Pierzyn­ski met the busi­ness end of Cubs catcher Michael Bar­rett’s right fist. Maybe Will­son Con­tr­eras or Yas­mani Gran­dal will be con­sid­er­ate enough to heave a hook at the other?
