I’m gonna be watching my Braves again, of course, but I’m also excited about tonight’s premiere of “The Contender” on ESPN. if you didn’t watch the first season of “The Contender,” you missed a great reality show — it was well edited, had great characters, and had extended minutes with Sugar Ray Leonard and Sly Stallone, which was always invigorating. What they did best, though, was put together the boxing matches and make them all seem really close. Don’t know if they were or not, but it was good TV. — LW
