There's only so much more time I can pretend that this year's Kenner League is amazeballs, but unless you are going to the National Sports Collectors Convention in Baltimore (AND I DON'T KNOW WHY YOU WOULDN'T), Kenner is probably your best bet for some quality sporting action in the DMV this weekend. Tonight, the Kenner League playoffs' main event tips at 8:50pm eastern, with Otto Porter and The Tombs taking on Jabril Trawick, Greg Whittington and DCX.
