Your Sports TV Schedule, 12/24: Sheraton Hawaii Bowl

It's an old trivia question: "What are the only three days of the year when there are no major league professional sports events?"

The answer used to be, "Christmas Eve and the days before and after the baseball All-Star game." It's still mostly true, although the MLB Home Run Derby now takes place on the day before the All-Star Game in July. And today, the NFL, NBA and NHL are taking the day off. So your one and only choice is college football... and a replay of a Bulls loss, oddly enough.

6 p.m., ESPN2: College basketball, Cancun Governor's Cup, third place game.

7 p.m., ESPN: Sheraton Hawaii Bowl, Hawaii vs. Tulsa. Tulsa gets a trip to the islands for the holidays. Hawaii gets to play in their home stadium. Hawaii is four hours behind Chicago time, so game time in Honolulu is 3 p.m. The sun sets there today at 5:56 p.m., so most of the game will be played in sunshine, while it's dark in the Midwest, just reminding you that winter has a long way to go.

7 p.m., CSN Chicago: NBA, "CSN Classic", Bulls at Suns from 11/24/2010. This was a terrific come-from-behind game that the Bulls won in double overtime.

8 p.m., ESPN2: College basketball, Cancun Governor's Cup, championship game.
