Packers going to Super Bowl!

Bear Down, Chicago Bears?  Sure was.  In what surely was an abysmal and disappointing showing by the Bears at their home field of Soldier Field this Sunday afternoon, the Green Bay Packers took home the big W with a 21-14 victory.

So what happened?

Chicago Bears starting quarterback Jay Cutler left Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against in the third quarter with a knee injury. The team has listed his return as questionable.  Journeyman QB Todd Collins replaced him, but Collins also left the game after going 0 for 4 for 0 yards with a few of his incompletions nearly being intercepted by the Packers.  Third time’s the charm?  Quarterback Caleb Hanie took over where Collins sort of left off.  That still doesn’t explain what happened during the rest of the game.  Cutler was struggling through a poor performance going 6 of 13 for 80 yards with no touchdowns at the time of the injury.

Hanie ever so briefly rallied his team for a touchdown drive to gain on the Packer’s lead 14-7 after Chester Taylor’s 1-yard touchdown run early in the 4th quarter. The Bears had the opportunity in their hot little hands to tie the game after the Bears’ defense finally got a few stops, but Hanie practically handed the ball to the Packers defensive lineman, B.J. Raji who took the gift and ran 18 yards into their end zone for another Packer’s touchdown.

The Packers, much unlike the Bears, actually showed up for the game.  They had a taste of the Super Bowl and they went after it.  Packers QB, Aaron Rodgers was on fire!  He ran for a touchdown.  He made a touchdown-savings tackle.  Rodgers was able to keep the Bear’s defense off kilter and kept the usually stellar Devin Hester under lock and key.  The Packers defense held their ground and took care of the rest by kicking the Bears to the curb..

The Stakes were huge today.  This was the 182nd meeting in the league’s most history rivalry.  The Packers will head to Dallas to take on either the Steelers or the Jets in the Super Bowl.

Denver Broncos Ready for the 2010 Season

The Denver Broncos are one of the more storied NFL franchises.  In 2001, the Denver Broncos opened the doors to their new 76,000 seats stadium by the name of Invesco Field at Mile High.   A critical year for the franchise was 1965 when the franchise had new NFL owners – Allan and Gerald Phipps. They purchased  the team and ensured the franchise would stay in Denver. Fans expressed their gratitude as attendance grew by leaps and bounds.  Attendance tripled from the previous year which made the franchise  legitimate in the Denver market for good.

In the modern era, the Broncos have won four AFC championships(1977, 1986, 1987 and 1989) but they could not win the Super Bowl.   The Giants and Redskins beat them in their two Super Bowl match ups, one being in Florida and the other in California.  Even though head coach Dan Reeves had superstar quarterback John Elway during his prime he could still not win the Super Bowl

In 1997 salvation finally came  when the Denver Broncos hired head coach Mike Shannahan. The Broncos finally won the  Super Bowl that had eluded them for years from their old AFL days.  They did so by beating the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XXXII. They came in as double digit underdogs but manged to upset the high powered Brett Farve led Green Bay Packers who were gunning for back to back titles. In 1998  the Broncos also beat the Atlanta Falcons, thus winning back to back Super Bowl titles.

Top February Events

It’s no secret that January and February are some of the slowest months for ticket sales.  During the fall and winter NFL Tickets and College football tickets sales surge but with both seasons over, there is a large void in the ticket market.  NBA, NHL, and NCAA (basketball) seasons are in full swing but demand for regular season tickets is generally low and the playoff and March Madness are still a long ways away.  This is also the time of year that many concert performers take a break and gear up for their summer tours.   Although this is the time of year that many of these highly anticipated tickets go on sale, conversion are usually greatest as the event date nears.  So with that in mind, what are the top upcoming events for February 2010?

2010 San Antonio Rodeo (February 4 th to February 20th) – ATT Center

The 2010 San Antonio Rodeo will feature some of the hottest pop and coutry artists performing live at the ATT Center in San Antonio.  The 2010 Lineup includes notable recording artists such as Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Selena Gomez, Foreigner, Rodney Atkins, Dierks Bentley, Trace Adkins, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Gary Allan, and many more.  Free Ticket Classifieds already has some great tickets available to many of these show in our Texas Concert Ticket Classifieds.

Super Bowl XLIV (February 7th, 2010) – Sun Life Stadium, Miami, Florida

What list of top events in February would be complete without the Super Bowl?  The Super Bowl is perhaps the biggest event in the world and these tickets are in high demand.  With the high demand comes a large tickets price – face value tickets start at $900+.  While Super Bowl tickets are not likely to sell at large volumes, the high point price makes selling Super Bowl tickets highly profitable.

NBA All Star Game (February 14, 2010) – Dallas Cowboys Stadium

Of all the major sports All Star events, the NBA version is perhaps the most in-demand and anticipated events.  This year the NBA All Star Game will be held at the new Dallas Cowboys Satdium and all 85,000+ tickets have already been sold.  The large amount of tickets available and large demand should mean that a large volume of tickets will be sold to the All Star game itself, as well as, the NBA All Star Rookie Challenge and NBA All Star Saturday events.  The NBA All Star Saturday will feature the Shooting Stars competition, the Skills Challenge, the Three-point shootout, and the Slam Dunk contest.

Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games (February 12 th to February 28th)

While Free Ticket Classifieds primarily features tickets from events in the United States, the 2010 Winter Games will be held just over the border in Vancouver Canada.  That means lots of people from the US will head north to see Olympians battle for the gold in many popular events.  Some of the most popular events include Mens Ice Hockey, Snowboarding, Skiing, and figure skating.  Also extremely popular are the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.  To Post or view Winter Games ads check out our Winter Games Ticket Classifieds.
