Starting Five: The to-do list for sports fans this week

February 12, 2012|RedEye

WATCH

"Best of the NBA Slam Dunk Contest"

Available Tuesday on DVD.

From Dr. J to Blake Griffin, this DVD collects some of the best dunks ever and features the dunkers themselves talking about them. If there's not at least 10 minutes dedicated to Dominique Wilkins vs. Michael Jordan, consider it a shock.

PLAY

"UFC Undisputed 3"

Available Tuesday for Xbox360 and PlayStation 3

Get in the Octagon and kick some virtual ass with the latest in this UFC franchise. "Undisputed 3" boasts more than 150 fighters and features the addition of Pride mode, based on the no-holds-barred Japanese MMA league.

WATCH

Blackhawks at Nashville

7 p.m. Tuesday, CSN

So what if it's Valentine's Day. This is a must-see so you might be able to say "I remember watching the game that stopped/prolonged the 2012 Blackhawks' eight-game losing streak."

PLAY

"FIFA Soccer '12"

Available Tuesday for all game consoles.

This is the game Chad Ochocinco is always tweeting about on his @ochocinco account. Get the game and then challenge him to an online match. And ask him if he's really changing his name back to "Johnson" while you are at it.

WATCH

Budweiser Shootout

7 p.m. Saturday, Fox

One weird thing about NASCAR: They do the "all-star" thing before the season starts. In this 75-lap race at Daytona International Speedway, 25 of the top drivers from last 2011 and former Daytona winners duke it out in the kickoff of the 2012 season. Yeehaw!
