1 Octopi could fall from evergreens as Arizona alum Jim Furyk defends the RBC Canadian Open title with his signature unorthodox swing. The $5 million purse goes up for grabs Thursday at noon, on the Golf Channel.

2 The forlorn NL West has begun to reshuffle like West Coast tectonic plates, the Los Angeles Dodgers taking over the early-week lead. Can the Arizona Diamondbacks gain momentum with a win off the steroid-free San Francisco Giants? Find out when Brandon Webb takes the mound at 6 p.m. Saturday on FoxSports AZ.

3 The 2008 Tour de France wraps up Sunday, when the 143-kilometer 21st stage finds cyclists rolling into Paris. Though only four Americans raced the event this year, competition was fierce. Catch the finish during repeat coverage on CBS, at 10 a.m.

4 NASCAR officials fined native Hoosier Tony Stewart $25,000 for bleeping his way through 2007’s Brickyard 400 winner’s circle interview. Tune in on Sunday to find out whether he can repeat his colorful victory. The green flag waves Sunday at 11 a.m.
