Everybody is home for Christmas time so that means lots of eating, resting, and relaxing while watching your favorite game on the tube. In fact, Christmas Day is probably the day where everyone becomes a couch potato, so let’s find out all the different sports that will be on TV this 2011 holiday season.

Now usually Saturday night is filled with hockey, but this Saturday is Christmas Eve and the NHL is taking the night off. But don’t you threat hockey fans, the NHL has put together another 24/7 Christmas special featuring the New York Rangers and the Philladelphia Flyers that you can watch on HBO.

If you are a football fan, then you are in luck. The NFL always seems to come through no matter how sacred the holiday. Instead of Christmas Sunday, all the NFL games will be played on Saturday, except for one game. The biggest rivalry in pro football, the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears, will be played on Christmas Day.

If you don’t like football, there are five big NBA games on Christmas Day including your favorite Lebron James and the Miami Heat versus the defending champs Dallas Mavericks. Then right after that there is a classic matchup with the Chicago Bulls and the LA Lakers. Way to come through NBA… showcasing their biggest stars on a day they know everyone will be looking for something interesting to watch on TV.
