With Super Bowl XLVI taking place this weekend it is no wonder that the top 3 events this week are all Super Bowl related. The Super Bowl is always a hot ticket but this year is especially big due to the teams involved: the New York Giants and New England Patriots. Not only do you have two of the largest sports markets in the country involved but you also have the two that hate each other the most. Most people think of the Boston-New York rivalry as between Red Sox and Yankees fans. However, the hatred spills over to all sports (Celtics vs Knicks, Patriots vs Jets/Giants, Bruins vs Rangers, etc.). The NFL took a lot of heat for hosting the Super Bowl in a cold weather city (Indianapolis) but it doesn’t look like they are going to have any trouble attracting fans to all the festivities.
Although Super Bowl event dominated this weeks events, there are also plenty of other events worth mentioning. Some old favorites and some new. So without further delay, here are your top 10 events this week…
