# Feet up
Don't touch that dial... here's the sport on TV this weekend
Broke after last weekend’s goings on? It’s time to get on the sofa for the weekend.
  • One to sit in for: Armagh v Down on Setanta at Saturday tea-time? Why not.
  • One to Sky-plus: The La Liga soccer on the same night could be tasty. Barca are back to within six points of Real. What’s Spanish for ‘squeaky bum’?
  • One to skip: I’ve been warned off the horses after last week.
