What a lineup of sport we have over this Saturday and Sunday!
[Note: all times are GMT +1]
First, it's football, as the Blue Nosed Toffee C*nts, Everton, host Rafa's Mighty Reds, Liverpool, for the first Merseyside derby of the season! What a game it promises to be. Kick-off is 12:45pm (Sky Sports 1, programme starts at 12pm).
Then it's Formula 1! It's the qualifying round at Interlagos in Brazil, with Hamilton, Alonso and Raikkonen all battling for pole position to get an advantage in the race in an attempt to win the Championship, but also Massa will be looking to perform on home ground. Q1 starts at 5pm (ITV4, programme starts at 4:30pm).
More football follows, in Spain though now as Villareal welcome Barcelona. Barca are two points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid, so will be looking to keep up the pressure even at this early stage of the season. Kick off is 7pm (Sky Sports Xtra, programme also starts at 7pm).
Next is rugby. England play South Africa in the World Cup Final. Underdogs England are looking to become the first ever nation to retain the World Cup, but face a massive task in attempting to beat South Africa! Kick-off is 8pm (ITV1, programme starts at 7:30pm).

Lastly on Saturday is more action from La Liga, as Real Madrid hope to extend their two-point lead at the top of the table at Espanyol. Kick off is 9pm (Sky Sports Xtra, programme also starts at 9pm, immediately follows Villareal vs. Barcelona).
Rounding off the weekend is the F1. The race from Interlagos is the last of the season, and there are 3 contenders to be Champion: Rookie Brit Lewis Hamilton driving for McClaren; two-time reigning champion (with Renault, now with McClaren) Fernando Alonso; and Ferrari's new boy Kimi Raikkonen. Hamilton leads the Championship with Alonso just three points behind, and Raikkonen a further four adrift. But with Brazilian Felipe Massa, also of Ferrari, wanting to put on a performance for his home crowd, it will prove to be a fascinating race. The race begins at 5pm (ITV1, programme starts at 4pm).
[Also on Sunday:
West Ham vs. Sunderland from the Premiership. Kick-off is 4pm (Sky Sports 1, programme starts at 3:30pm);
Atletico Madrid vs. Real Zaragoza from La Liga. Kick off is 8pm (Sky Sports 1, programme also starts at 8pm).]
Well I must say I can't wait. I know I'll be watching all of these (apart from the rugby as I want to watch the Spanish football, I will of course be checking the score), and I'll obviously be watching the F1 rather than West Ham vs. Sunderland!
But the questions is, what are you guys going to be watching?
