SURFING THE TUBE.

Byline: TOM HOFFARTH

TODAY

Two clues that the NFL season is getting closer: ESPN has its first ``Monday Night Countdown' show tonight (7 p.m.), and ``Monday Night Golf'' returns for its now-annual summer stopover. This year, Tiger Woods and Ernie Els think they've got a chance against Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia in a $1.7 million best-ball competition. What does someone like Mike Weir or Ben Curtis have to do to get into this fearless foursome? Golf: Battle at the Bridges: Tiger Woods and Ernie Els vs. Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia, Channel 7, 5 p.m.; Baseball: Oakland at Angels, Fox Sports Net, 7 p.m.; Atlanta at Montreal, ESPN, 4 p.m.; Soccer: Club America vs. Manchester United, Fox Sports Net, noon (tape).

TUESDAY

Springsteen might be skipping Edison Field on his ballpark tour, but George ``The Boss' Steinbrenner sends his version of Manchester United to Anaheim. Please leave the handicapped spots open for Jesse Orosco. Baseball: N.Y. Yankees at Angels, Fox Sports Net, 7 p.m.; Houston at Atlanta, TBS, 4:30 p.m.; San Francisco at Chicago, WGN, 5 p.m.; Tennis: ATP Mercedes-Benz Cup from UCLA, The Tennis Channel, 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.

WEDNESDAY

Despite our hatred for pinstripes, there's an overwhelming desire to see a future Famer named William Roger Clemens (302-158, 3.18 ERA) take the hill one last time against the Hated Halos. Please, don't let Barry Zito take his spot. Baseball: N.Y. Yankees at Angels, Fox Sports Net, 7 p.m.; San Francisco at Chicago, ESPN, 11:15 a.m.; Houston at Atlanta, ESPN, 4 p.m.; Arizona at Florida, ESPN2, 4 p.m.; Tennis: ATP Mercedes-Benz Cup from UCLA, The Tennis Channel, 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.

THURSDAY

L.A. vs. Sacramento doesn't get any better. Well, at least on this day. WNBA: Sparks at Sacramento, ESPN2, 7 p.m.; Baseball: N.Y. Yankees at Angels, Fox Sports Net, 7 p.m.; Houston at Atlanta, TBS, 4:30 p.m.; Tennis: ATP Mercedes-Benz Cup from UCLA, The Tennis Channel, 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.

FRIDAY

Be careful out there. The Ben-'n'-Jen flick ``Gigli' comes out tonight. Stop giggling and find alternative entertainment quickly before you find yourself having to explain to your date the actual translation of ``Gigli.'' Baseball: Dodgers at Atlanta, TBS, 4:30 p.m.; Toronto at Angels, Fox Sports Net, 7 p.m.; NFL exhibition: N.Y. Jets vs. Tampa Bay in Tokyo, ESPN2, 2 a.m. (replayed later Saturday at 5 p.m. on ESPN); Tennis: ATP Mercedes-Benz Cup from UCLA, The Tennis Channel, 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.

SATURDAY

This All-Star Game, it doesn't count. Unless you live near the Home Depot Center and can't pull out of your driveway to go to Osh to get some 2-by-4s because the traffic is a mess near the 91 and 405. MLS All-Star Game from Carson, Channel 7, 12:30 p.m.; Baseball: Dodgers at Atlanta, Channel 11, 1 p.m.; Toronto at Angels, Fox Sports Net, 7 p.m.; Chicago at Seattle, WGN, 7 p.m.; WNBA: Charlotte at Sparks, Fox Sports Net 2, 7:30 p.m.; Tennis: WTA Acura Classic semifinals from Carlsbad, Fox Sports Net, 1 p.m.; ATP Mercedes-Benz Cup semifinals from UCLA, Fox Sports Net, 3 p.m., and The Tennis Channel, 7:30 p.m.; NASCAR: Brickyard 400 qualifying, TNT, 8 a.m.

SUNDAY

Marcus Allen goes into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, today. Somehow, he picked his father, not Al Davis, as his presenter. Just as long as the acceptance speech is finished before the final of the Mercedes-Benz Cup tennis tourney. Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony, ESPN, 11 a.m.; Tennis: ATP Mercedes-Benz Cup final from UCLA, Fox Sports Net 2, 1 p.m.; WTA Acura Classic final from Carlsbad, Channel 7, 1 p.m.; Golf: Women's British Open final round, Channel 7, 3 p.m. (delayed); PGA Buick Open final round from Grand Blanc, Mich., Channel 2, noon; NASCAR Brickyard 500, Channel 4, 11:30 a.m.; Baseball: Dodgers at Atlanta, TBS, 10 a.m.; Toronto at Angels, Fox Sports Net, 1 p.m.; Arizona at Chicago, WGN, 11:10 a.m.; San Francisco at Cincinnati, ESPN, 5 p.m.
