Top Weekend Events March 11 – 13

PBRWelcome to your Wednesday!

It certainly is an odd mix of things that are topping the charts this week, huh.  There’s everything from Bull Riding to Disney to Spring Training to Comedy and everything in between.

The Professional Bull Riders show up on the list for their Hampton Invitational where the riders seek valuable qualifying points for the 2011 Professional Bull Riders Tour Finals. The Hampton Invitational is part of the PBR’s Touring Pro Series. Money earned by the riders at PBR Hampton Invitational counts toward the PBR qualifier standings that determine which cowboys will compete at the 2011 Professional Bull Riders Tour Finals in Las Vegas NV.  Get all that?

As far as sports go, obviously March Madness kicks off this week with the regional tournaments including the Big Ten which appears on our list below and the Big East which has HUGE expectations for their outcomes.  Ohio State University and Pittsburgh are expected to come out on top of those tournaments.  The Yankees are the first official MLB baseball team to make the list in 2011.  I was betting it was going to be the Red Sox.  Oh well.

On the music scene, Flogging Molly is not of any surprise to me.  St. Patty’s day is almost upon us and FM’s Irish/Celtic rock sound is immensely popular this time of year.  Rascal Flatts is also showing up on the list with their big tour Nothing Like This.   Their shows are heavy on special effects, including videos, pyrotechnics and laser lights.  Kid Rock makes another appearance on the list.  And Girl Talk, also known as Gregg Michael Gillis, is an American musician that specializes in mashups and digital sampling.  The Houston Rodeo is also going on this weekend.  Other upcoming acts at the HR include: Lady Antebellum, Kid Rock (again!), KISS, Miranda Lambert, Zac Brown Band, Brad Paisley and Jason Aldean.  Tracy Morgan should not go unmentioned, given his popularity with Saturday Night Live (SNL) and 30 Rock.  This is one funny man!
