Well since Susie is taking a bit of a break, you will have to put up with me for a little longer as I break down the top weekend event for November 11th through the 13th, 2011. This weekend is absolutely dominated by sports- primarily college and NFL football. However, Taylor Swift snuck into the top 10 with her sold concert on Sunday in Miami, FL. However, coming in at #1 on our list is the big boxing match between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez. Although the “Pac Man” is heavily favored, Marquez held his own in two previous fights. Many boxing fans are looking past this fight and are eagerly awaiting Pacquiao’s bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr. For Pac Man’s sake let hope he isn’t doing to the same.
In College Football, the #1 ranked LSU Tigers remain a hot ticket as they return home to face cupcake Western Kentucky. Many fans appear to be taking advantage of the low ticket price against this inferior foe. Surprisingly, also on the list, is the big Penn State vs Nebraska game. While this game has huge implications for the Big 10, it is Joe Paterno’s sex scandal that is grabbing all the headlines. Many suspect this could be Joe Pa’s last game on the Nittany Lions sideline. Coming in at #9 is the big PAC 12 matchup between Stanford and Oregon. A win by Andrew Luck and the Cardinal and they will be looking good for a chance at the BCS National Championship game.
The NFL has 3 games that made our top ten list this week. The first game is the NFC showdown between the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions. Jay Cutler and company will be looking for revenge after an embarrassing Monday night performance a few weeks back. Also making the list are big AFC match-ups the San Diego Chargers vs Oakland Raiders (I know it’s Thursday but we’re going to count it anyway), as well as, the New England Patriots vs the NY Jets.
