You know spring is here when it's Kentucky Derby day. Perhaps now the weather will warm up in Chicago. Or not. There's also NHL and NBA playoff action today, the Cubs during the day, and the White Sox tonight. All times Central.â†µâ†µ
12 noon, Fox-32: MLB, Cubs vs. Reds at Wrigley Field.â†µâ†µ
3 p.m., NBC-5: Horse racing, Kentucky Derby. The race doesn't actually start until after 5 p.m. -- can you imagine two hours of pre-race preview?â†µâ†µ
7:30 p.m., CSN Chicago: MLS, Whitecaps vs. Fire at Toyota Park. The Whitecaps are from Vancouver. With the "other" Vancouver team in the NHL playoffs, fans from that city can be forgiven for not paying too much attention to this game. But you, Chicago sports fan, can see both of them on your own TV screen tonight!â†µâ†µ
8 p.m., WGN: MLB, White Sox at Mariners.
