The players for the NBA All Star Game have been announced. Among the Eastern Conference starters are Dwyane Wade, Kevin Garnett, Lebron James and Dwight Howard. None of these come as surprise, but there is one starter who is stirring up some controversy. Allen Iverson.

Many fans were upset at this decision because Iverson has only played in 19 games, for 32 minutes, averaging a career low of 14 points, and 4 assists per game. Some fans believed that some of the players who have had better seasons than Iverson include Rajon Rondo, Joe Johnson, or Derrick Rose should have gotten the nod. Despite the controversy, Iverson claims that if he dropped out of the game he would be disrespecting the people who did vote for him.

This is Iverson’s 11th straight season being voted into the All Star Game, and his 3rd straight time being a starter. In this time span he has represented 3 different teams. His All Star Game career includes 2 MVP awards in 2001 and 2005.

The 2010 NBA All-Star Game will be played on February 14, 2010 at the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Don’t miss your chance to experience some of the NBA’s best play together live in person.

Johnny Damon of the New York Yankees has a tough decision to make, and he is running out of time to make it. The Yankees and Damon had a conversation once again, and this time he was given the weekend to decide if he wants to return to the Yankees. If Damon were to decide that he wanted to come back to New York it would be on a bargain deal.

After Johnny Damon helped the Yankees win their 27th world Series with 100 runs, 24 of them being home runs, he thought he deserved a good deal. In December, Damon asked the Yankees for $20 million on a two-year deal. However, the Yankees signed Nick Johnson at that time and declined Damon his $20 million deal.

It is not looking good for Damon’s acceptance of a low-base contract from the Yankees, and low base would mean less than $5 million. His run with the Yankees may be officially ending early next week. There has been some talk of possible teams Damon may go to including The Giants, the Tigers, and the Braves.

Super Bowl XLIV Tickets

Colts vs Saints in Super Bowl XLIV

The Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints are set to meet in Super Bowl XLIV to determine the NFL Championship.

Super Bowl XLIV is scheduled for February 7, 2010 at Sun Life Stadium (formerly Dolphin Stadium) in Miami Gardens, Florida.

The Colts fell behind the New York Jets early in the AFC Championship game but with support from their home crowd were able to rattle off 24 unanswered points to claim the AFC title. The NY Jets can be proud of the season they had as at mid-season it seemed the playoffs were out of reach.

In the NFC Championship game it took an overtime session to decide the winner. In a great battle with the Minnesota Vikings, the New Orleans Saints were able to pull out a victory with an overtime field goal by kicker Garrett Hartley.

Both teams fought hard to win their conferences but nothing will compare to the pressure of playing in the Super Bowl. The Colts with league MVP Peyton Manning at quarterback and the Saints with charismatic leader Drew Brees at the helm are two offensive powerhouses that are sure to put on a great show. Super Bowl XLIV is shaping up to be one heck of a game.

Not to be forgotten is the halftime show provided by The Who. With classic songs like My Generation, Who Are You, Baba O’Riley and Won’t Get Fooled Again, even halftime will be hard-hitting!

Before all is said and done, Super Bowl XLIV looks like it will be one for the ages — find Super Bowl tickets today at SelectATicket.com.

It is halfway through the National Hockey League season and it seemed as though the New Jersey Devils were in some sort of slump. New Jersey has lost 4 out of their last 6 games.

Prior to Saturday’s game the Devils were not able to play well offensively. In addition, the team realized that they weren’t taking advantage of their power plays. In the last 8 games they were 0 for 23. Niclas Bergfors thinks that the problem is that the team is without structure, and their confidence is down.

Perhaps the Devils’ 4-2 win against the New York Islanders on Saturday at the Nassau Coliseum will boost the team’s confidence. It may also be a start to getting the team out of their mid-season rut. Left wing, Zach Parise scored the Devils’ first and only power-play goal out of the 24 opportunities they had. This win gave the Devils’ their first win in 4 games, and they needed it.

The New Jersey Devils will play their next game in Ottawa against the Senators on Tuesday, January 26 at 7:30pm.

The New York Rangers were shut-out by the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night in Philadelphia. However, that was not the biggest news of the night. The fight that ensued between the Flyers Daniel Carcillo and New York’s Marian Gaborik became the hit story of the night.

It is no surprise that Daniel Carcillo would attack and begin a fight because he is one of hockey’s more well known enforcers. Last year he had 22 fights and was ranked 4th in the league for most fights. It is surprising however that he chose to fight Marian Gaborik, a Ranger superstar who has only been in one prior fight in his 551 game career.

Marian Gaborik is one of the NHL’s lead scorers. In 10 seasons he has had 248 goals, and he is one of the best players for the New York Rangers. This act of violence by Carcillo is “in hockey terms, a cowardly act.”

However, Carcillo claims to not have expected to fight who he did. It is unclear who dropped the gloves first, but the replay does show Carcillo grabbing Gaborik around his neck and punching him in the face with his gloves still on. The fight lasted for seven punches all by Carcillo as Gaborik landed none.

The New York Rangers will play their next game in Montreal against the Canadiens on Saturday, January 23.

In 2008 Billy Elliot the Musical came to the Broadway stage at the Imperial Theatre in New York City. According to Eric Fellner, the producer of the musical, the musical has made back their $18 million production costs, and has now turned to profit in just 14 months.

Billy Elliot the Musical is based on the British feature film from 2000. It comes to life on stage with help from musical legend, Sir Elton John, who wrote a brand new book and lyrics for the Broadway version of Billy Elliot.

The musical is about an 11 year old boy named Billy Elliot. The boy is a poor child growing up in a fictional northern town outside of London without a mother. The story takes place in 1984 during the Coal riots. Although his father would like him to take up boxing, Billy has no interest in doing so, and in addition he has no talent for the sport. Billy has a different plan. His dream is to use his mother’s love of music through dancing. He secretly takes dance class at the Royal Ballet School in London and hopes to make his dreams of becoming a dancer come true.

New Jersey Devils’ defenseman Andy Greene may be giving Team USA some feelings of regret. Last summer Greene was not put on the original Olympic candidates list for USA Hockey. Since he was not on the original list he is ineligible to travel to Vancouver and be on Team USA for the winter Olympic Games in February. He cannot be added to the original list because he has not completed the drug testing.

Andy Greene’s teammates agree that if he played last year as much as he did this year then he would definitely be on that list. Greene was not as prominent a player when Team USA created the list last summer. Although he did not make it on Team USA’s list, he assures us that he’s not disappointed. He admitted that it would be an honor, but his “first responsibility is here with the Devils.”

The 27 year old is ranked first in scoring between the Devils defensemen. This season he had 23 points in 36 games. These points include 5 goals and 18 assists. Among all defensemen in the National Hockey League, Andy Greene is ranked 13th.

The New Jersey Devils play the Florida Panthers on Wednesday night.

While the National Football League playoffs are heading into the Conference Championships this weekend to determine the combatants for Super Bowl XLIV, SelectATicket.com is already accepting requests for Super Bowl Tickets.

The Indianapolis Colts will host the New York Jets to determine the AFC champions and the Minnesota Vikings travel to New Orleans to take on the Saints in the NFC Championship Game. The two Conference champions will compete for the Super Bowl at LandShark Stadium in Miami on February 7.

“No matter which teams advance to the Super Bowl, it is one of the biggest annual events in all of sports and with halftime entertainment provided by The Who this year, Super Bowl tickets are going to be hard to come by,” says Tom Patania, CEO of SelectATicket.

The Indianapolis Colts feature a strong offense with star quarterback Peyton Manning, wide receiver Reggie Wayne and tight end Dallas Clark providing the bulk of the offense. However, they will face the NFL’s stingiest defense in the New York Jets. This season the Jets led the NFL in Total Yards Allowed per game and Passing Yards Allowed per game.

In the NFC, the high powered offense of the New Orleans Saints is what has brought them this far. Quarterback Drew Brees and Co. defeated the Arizona Cardinals 45-14 to advance to the NFC Championship game. The Minnesota Vikings, led by veteran quarterback Brett Favre, handily defeated the Dallas Cowboys 34-3 to earn the chance to play for the NFC Championship.

With a spot in the Super Bowl on the line, both games are certain to be hard-fought battles.

The New York Jets are on their way to the AFC Championship game. This is the first time since 1999 that the Jets made it this far when they lost to Denver. The Jets ended the San Diego Chargers’ 11 game winning streak to advance to the Championship game. The Chargers were upset 17-14 in San Diego, but the Jets still have on more step in order to become the AFC Champions.

The New York Jets will play the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, January 24, 2010. If they win this game they go all the way to the Super Bowl XLIV, but if they lose then the team’s 2009-2010 season is over.

The Jets started their playoffs when they beat the Cincinnati Bengals as a wildcard pick. Now the Jets are just one game away from being guaranteed to play in Super Bowl XLIV. If the New York Jets become the AFC Champions, and make it to the Super Bowl this will be the first time in 41 years since this has happened.

UConn’s men’s basketball team is no stranger to being a powerhouse of the Big East. However they lost 67-57 to Pittsburgh on Wednesday night at the XL Center, and it is evident that they might not be the powerhouse they once were.

The reason for this is definitely not for lack of ability. The Huskies have lost by only a total of 8 points in 3 games while heading into their game on Wednesday against Pitt, with the exception of their loss to Duke. However, at the XL Center on Wednesday the Huskies weren’t playing up to their full potential. They had poor shooting, rebounding, and half court offense. There was no outside shooting, and no inside game.

The UConn men’s basketball team is currently halfway through its season and even though they are trying to follow up its Final Four status, they are struggling in doing so. But the 11-5 Huskies still have 2 months to get their record up.

The UConn Huskies have a chance on Saturday night against Notre Dame to show the Big East what they are made of. Get your Big East Tournament Tickets now from Select A Ticket.
