With only a few days until next Wednesday’s New York Giants season opener against Dallas, Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka has fired a shot through the media at the rival Cowboys. As if this game needed any more intrigue to make it exciting!

As reported by the New York Post, Kiwanuka was interviewed on New York Sports Radio station WFAN and asked to respond to Dallas Owner Jerry Jones’ early summer statement at a Cowboys season-ticket holder rally that the Cowboys would: “Beat the New York Giants asses.”

Kiwanuka quipped “the Giants have been whupping his ass for a long time.”

So now that all preseason games are complete for NY, “it is on”, as it always is the case against divisional rival Dallas Cowboys.

The Giants swept the season series with Dallas last season, winning 37-34 in Week 14 at Dallas and by a 31-14 margin in the season finale at MetLife Stadium, Week 17.

The Giants of course narrowly reached the playoffs but went on to win the Super Bowl, proving you just have to make the playoffs and anything can happen.

Cowboys vs Giants tickets remain available for next Wednesday’s game. Head on out to MetLife Stadium to watch the kickoff of this season, see the Giants receive their Super Bowl Champion rings and enjoy the great weather the area has been having with a night of NFL football!

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be playing two shows this weekend in Philadelphia at Citizens Bank Park. Sunday September 2nd and Monday September 3rd.

SelectATicket.com’s Springsteen tickets in Philadelphia were just lowered in price so now is a great time to lock in on a few and see The Boss! All Bruce fans know that his shows in Philadelphia are traditionally out of this world, with excellent setlists which leave fans walking out of the show on Cloud 9.

Take a look now to see what is available, some tickets are even below face value – it does not get better than that:

New York and New Jersey area fans who’d prefer to see the band at MetLife Stadium later in September (19, 21 and 22) are encouraged to look for tickets here.

The New York Jets lost their third consecutive preseason game yesterday to the Carolina Panthers by a score of 17-12. The Jets have still not recorded a touchdown this preseason despite coming close on a late drive under Tim Tebow’s direction.

While preseason is to be taken with a substantial grain of salt, it certainly must be weighing on the players and coaches that they have yet to cross the goal line in three straight games.

Just to put this in perspective, this is the first time since the 1977 Atlanta Falcons that a team has failed to register a touchdown in their first 3 scrimmages. That’s 35 years ago, folks!

But fear not, Jets fans, quarterback Mark Sanchez asserts they’re saving their best stuff for when the games count and that is exactly the attitude they need from him. He is the offensive leader and he has to keep things in perspective and positive.

The have many new parts on the team and a new Offensive Coordinator in Tony Sparano so that means a whole new offense to learn. That’s what these games are for, winning and losing are secondary but it sure would be nice for them to punch a few over the goal line and quiet the doubters and haters.

Their next chance comes Thursday August 30 at Lincoln Financial Field against the Philadephia Eagles. This game marks their final preseason tuneup before the regular season starts against Buffalo on Sunday September 9th.

The games in September always have the best weather, loads of optimism and often the best prices so head on over to SelectATicket.com to find 2012 NY Jets tickets and catch their home opener or any other Jets game at MetLife Stadium this season.

As the summer winds down, there is a buzz around MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey and it is not just for the Giants and the Jets, as we approach September that means the three Bruce Springsteen concerts at MetLife Stadium are almost here!

September 19, 21 and 22 will see Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band take over the Meadowlands with three nights of rock n’ roll like only they can provide.

While this tour marks their first outing without Clarence Clemons, it has been widely regarded as a hugely successful triumphant return to touring for the band and has includeded their longest show EVER — a 4 hour and 6 minute rock n roll marathon in Helsinki, Finland. Not to mention the long list of forgotten favorites that have been dusted off and given new life by Bruce and the band, which now includes a full horn section in an attempt to make up for the loss of The Big Man. The added horns has provided depth and flexibility to the sound.

Some of the old favorites that are being played on this tour are Thundercrack, Seaside Bar Song, Does This Bus Stop at 82nd Street?, Blinded by the Light, the Detroit Medley and so much more.

With nearly 40 years of music and countless covers, there is no telling what the setlists will look like for these Springsteen concerts in New Jersey. One thing is for sure, you can bet fans with tickets to the final show are crossing their fingers they get a “Jersey Girl” encore that night!

There’s not much better for a Springsteen fan than being in New Jersey, enjoying the cooling temperatures with old friends and having a live soundtrack provided by Bruce Springsteen and the legendary E Street Band!

Start making plans now if you haven’t already and lock up your Springsteen tickets at MetLife Stadium today as demand will only rise from this point until the concerts.

With the current push from their official Twitter account to download the UView app, the Rolling Stones appear on the verge of a major announcement. Naturally, fans are jumping to the conclusion that this is FINALLY going to be the news they’ve all been waiting for – a Rolling Stones 50th Anniversary Tour in 2013.

While it is purely speculation, there has been a constant buzz, of varying frequency, of a Stones tour to celebrate their 50 years together. And there has been plenty of fanfare around the anniversary so far in their native England. Their absence at the Olympics was disappointing however as that would seem to have been a prime time to reignite international attention on the band and then shortly thereafter announce a world tour. The excitement over that would have been tremendous, however it was not to be.

All fans can do is continue to follow us here on TicketBulletin, follow the Stones on Twitter (@RollingStones) and sign up at SelectATicket.com for the 2013 Rolling Stones Ticket Alert. It is a free email alert to let you know when Stones tickets become available through Select-A-Ticket.

The New York Yankees defeated the Texas Rangers, surviving two home runs by Josh Hamilton to leave Yankee Stadium with a 3-2 win last night in the Bronx.

Texas came into town with the best offense in the American League but the Yankees have held them under control thus far in the series, having only allowed four runs in the first 3 games of the series. The fourth and final game is this afternoon and just underway at Yankee Stadium.

Following the Rangers, the Yankees have a weekend series with their heated rival, the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees are a whopping 13.5 games ahead of Boston in the American League East standings. That may be partially to blame for sagging ticket sales for this usually intense series. For example, Sunday night’s game has tickets available below face value at SelectATicket.com.

While that may be an extreme condition, factoring in the game is a late start on a Sunday night and will be on ESPN, it is still not every day that you can get a discount on Yankees vs Red Sox tickets. Fans would be wise to take advantage of this while they can, it is the same two hated teams playing the same game, you just pay less than usual!

The United States Women’s National Soccer Team is set to compete against Costa Rica on Saturday, September 1st in Rochester, New York.

Following their Gold Medal performance in London, this is a great chance for United States soccer fans to welcome the women home and cheer them on to what hopefully becomes another victory.

Fans are encouraged to act now if they’re interested in attending this international match, as U.S. Women’s National team vs Costa Rica tickets are already in high demand as they’re coming off the massive exposure their thrilling Olympic victory received.

Hockey fans are already buzzing about a potenital All Star Weekend reunion between recently traded franchise hero Rick Nash and the host Columbus Blue Jackets. The 2013 NHL Skills Competition (January 26) and All Star Game (January 27) will be held at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Nash has played his entire career with the Blue Jackets until he was traded to the New York Rangers this summer. In return, the Blue Jackets received a nice package of players in Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov and Tim Erixon along with New York’s first round pick in next year’s NHL Draft. None of these players will ever be mistaken for Rick Nash though and Blue Jackets fans cannot help but feel like they’ve been kicked in the stomach by this team.

Nash has been nothing short of superb in the community and on the ice during his time in Columbus, even passing up a chance a free agency two years ago to sign a long term contract to stay with the Blue Jackets. But when it became apparent they were going to rebuild the team yet again, he requested a trade for two reasons: he’s the biggest asset they had and would bring the most in return, and he is not getting any younger and feels he deserves a chance to play for a winner.

Holding nearly every record in the book for the franchise, Nash leaves Columbus for the bright lights of Broadway and the legitimate shot at not only reaching the playoffs for just the second time in his career but actually having a chance at winning the Stanley Cup. The Rangers have a strong team and the deal for Nash has let everyone know they are “going for it” this season.

Should he be paired with star center Brad Richards, Nash will have the best setup man he’s ever played with. This could lead to some impressive offensive totals for Nash and a likely All Star Game nomination.

To see Nash return to Columbus, as an All Star, in a different uniform would be a major slap in the face of Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson who has taken a boatload of criticism for how the Nash trade was handled but also how he’s performed as GM since coming to Ohio.

Will the fans cheer wildly for Nash or will they boo their departed superstar now that he’s no longer theirs? Either way, should Nash make the NHL All Star Game this is really going to be something to watch.

WWE Wrestling held a conference call on August 2, 2012 to announce the publicly traded company’s second quarter financials and in terms of pay-per-view, the numbers were positive.

Of their four big events, each one of them saw a rise in viewership compared to the same events in 2011.

Here are the stats courtesy of CageSideSeats.com (2011 numbers in parentheses):
WreslteMania 28 — 1,217,000 (1,059,000)
Extreme Rules — 263,000 (209,000)
Over the Limit — 167,000 (140,000)
No Way Out — 194,000 (170,000)

That’s right fans, a whopping 1.2 million sets tuned in to Wrestlemania 28, up 150,000 from 2011. How many will there be for Wrestlemania 29? It is hard to say but given that the event will be in MetLife Stadium must minutes outside of Manhattan, it is sure to be a HUGE draw for both attendees and ppv around the world.

So far there are no confirmed bouts for Wrestlemania XXIX but knowing the WWE, they are not going to host anything short of a truly spectacular fight card on the biggest wrestling night of the year and on what amounts to the biggest stage in the world — New York City.
