The big game is only a few short days away and fans of both teams are battling for the best of what’s left in terms of remaining tickets.

While some fans will be happy just to be able to say they were there, they certainly need to act fast if they are among the fans who prefer great view lines of the game as inventory for Super Bowl XLVII between San Francisco and Baltimore is drying up.

New Orleans is a hopping town any time of year but Super Bowl week there is something that can only be experienced to believe!

Bourbon Street, The French Quarter, The Garden District, Decatur Street, countless clubs and restaurants, live music everywhere you turn, a piece of history on every street corner — it is one of the greatest cities in the world. There is non-stop action in New Orleans and it will all lead up to the Super Bowl on Sunday night.

Will Colin Kaepernick continue his Cinderella-like season and seal it with a Super Bowl victory or will Ray Lewis go out on top and retire as a champion? Which Harbaugh brother will have bragging rights all off-season at family gatherings, that is, if they have any after this! There are countless stories within the game and a Beyonce performance at halftime, to top it off.

There’s still time to lock up good Super Bowl tickets, do not wait until the last minute and regret missing you chance to attend this game.

Powered by a Marian Gaborik hat trick, the New York Rangers finally reached the win column last night with a 4-3 overtime victory over the Boston Bruins.

Jumping out to a 2-0 lead on two first period goals by Gaborik, the Rangers then let the Bruins come back and tie the game.

The tie didn’t last long as Taylor Pyatt scored his second goal of the season just 46 seconds after Milan Lucic tied it up for Boston.

It appeared the Rangers might hold on to the 3-2 lead but with the teams skating four on four late in the third period, Nathan Horton fired one past Henrik Lundqvist to force overtime.

Gaborik once again stepped to the forefront, pressuring the point in his own zone and forcing a turnover which resulted in a breakaway for the speedy winger.

His first shot was stopped by Bruins goalie Tukka Rask but Gaborik swatted the rebound out of mid-air and into the net for the game winning goal.

The Rangers are right back at it tonight with a game in Philadelphia against the Flyers and then return home for a Saturday night matchup against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Tickets to NY Rangers home games are on sale now at SelectATicket.com.

The New Jersey Devils are off to a hot start in the lockout-shortened NHL season and last night star goaltender Martin Brodeur kept the hot streak going by shutting out the rival Philadelphia Flyers, 3-0.

The game was the home opener for the Devils who are now 2-0 to stand tied atop the Atlantic Division with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Brodeur made some spectacular stops to hold on to the shutout and the Prudential Center crowd loved every minute of it.

Backed by goals from Travis Zajac, David Clarkson and one on a penalty shot by Ilya Kovalchuk, Brodeur had more than enough of a lead to gain the victory.

Next up for the Devils at the Prudential Center are the Washington Capitals. Led by superstar Alexander Ovechkin, offensive defenseman Mike Green and prolific center Nicklas Backstrom, the Capitals are going to pose quite a challenge for the Devils and their strong team defense displayed this far.

Great tickets remain available for this and most Devils games at the Prudential Center. While the team is hot, why not head over to SelectATicket.com and pick out a few games to enjoy?

As speculated and even stated by the NHL’s Bill Daly during the recently concluded lockout, Detroit Red Wings General Manager Ken Holland reported to FoxSports Detroit yesterday that the 2014 Winter Classic will be held at Michigan Stadium. Originally planned for the 2013 game which was canceled due to the lockout, the 2014 game will feature an Original Six matchup of the Toronto Maple Leafs vs the Detroit Red Wings.

This is the first game which will include a Canadian team, the Maple Leafs have such a strong following and are relatively close to the Michigan border so this is going to be one exciting matchup with fans from both teams within driving distance for the game.

Now that the NHL is set to resume, you can bet fans are going to start looking ahead to next year’s winter classic and be looking for tickets.

If you are interested in attending the Winter Classic, head over to SelectATicket.com today and place your ticket request today.

This Sunday the NFC and AFC Championship games will be played to determine which teams will play for the Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans on February 3rd.

First, we take a look at the NFC game.

The NFC game begins at 3pm ET and will see the Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers battle to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.

Atlanta has had strong regular seasons recently but this past Sunday was the first playoff success they’ve had in years and now are on the verge of reaching the Super Bowl in nearby New Orleans.

The 49ers are not a surprise team, they reached the conference championship game last year only to lose to the New York Giants as a result of some special teams blunders.

What is a surprise is that quarterback Colin Kaepernick is at the helm. Alex Smith had been a solid QB for the most part but when Kaepernick filled in for him he demonstrated a new wrinkle he could add to the 49ers’ attack. When Smith was ready to return, it was a surprise decision to stick with Kaepernick but it has paid off. He has been outstanding. He is a threat to run on any play as evidenced by his record setting 181 rushing yards, the most ever by a quarterback in the playoffs. This is going to be a great game and the winner will have one more challenge ahead of them, either the New England Patriots or Baltimore Ravens from the AFC, which we will look at tomorrow.

Previously a two-day event, the 2013 NHL Entry Draft will feature every round completed in a single day.

The draft is set for Sunday June 30, 2013 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. This is the first time in their history that the New Jersey Devils will host the draft.

In recent years, the NHL has held the dramatic first round on Friday night and the remaining rounds the next day.

Compressing the full draft into a single Sunday will hopefully accelerate the process and and the same time give fans a full day’s worth of excitement in this rare chance to see their teams build towards the future.

Not only that, but the draft is also a common source of trade activity. Some big names have changed hands on draft day through the years and being there at the Prudential Center, you can learn first hand when a blockbuster deal goes down!

Sign up now to be alerted when NHL Entry Draft tickets become available.

Word on the internet is the New York Yankees are looking to bolster the hitting from the right side of the plate and are interested in acquiring first baseman/outfielder Michael Morse from the Washington Nationals.

As reported by ESPN, Morse has been made expendable in Washington where the Nationals have a bit of a surplus as first baseman Adam LaRoche just locked up for two years and their starting outfield is set with Bryce Harper, Jayson Werth and Denard Span.

Morse is just two years removed from a 31 home run season in 2011, and is coming off an 18 home run season.

There’s still plenty of time left in the off-season but before you know it spring training will be underway and baseball will be upon us.

If you’d like to start picking out some games to attend this season, now is a great time to get an early jump on Yankees tickets. Once camps open up, fans usually get the itch and start buying the best seats.

The Crimson Tide of Alabama romped on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to the tune of a 42-14 victory in last night’s BCS Championship Game at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium.

This marks the third time in four years that Alabama has been named national champions. Coach Nick Saban has put together quite a lineup and they continue to be at or near the top of the NCAA year after year.

Allowing only 31 rushing yards, Alabama got off to a fast 21-0 start to force ND to the air almost immediately.

Loaded with some talented underclassmen, Alabama will once again be among the top teams next season.

Speaking of next season, the 2014 BCS Championship Game will be the final time the national champion is decided in this manner.

After next year, college football will switch to a playoff system to determine the best team in the nation.

Judging by last night’s thumping of Notre Dame, a team ranked #1 in the country by BCS standards, the playoff system cannot be any less accurate than the BCS system. Not to take anything away from the Fighting Irish, they are a very good team, but to be ranked number one and be totally outclassed in every aspect of the championship game from opening kickoff to the final whistle just shows there is a seriously flawed ranking system currently in place.

The 2014 BCS Championship Game will be played at Pasadena’s Rose Bowl Stadium on January 6, 2014. Sign up at SelectATicket.com for an email alert when tickets orders can be placed for the final BCS Championship Game.

Despite doing damage to the game once again, the NHL and NHLPA have agreed in principle to settle the lockout and return to playing hockey. There are still several fans who feel disrespected, as well they should, but the overwhelming feeling across social media platforms is excitement.

A quick search of Twitter will show fans messaging their favorite players already rooting them on and hoping for a Stanley Cup. There are still others who claim to have lost interest and no longer care what happens and while that may be true in a few instances, for the most part fans have shown time and time again after pro sports labor stoppages that they will return eventually.

There remains the unsigned agreement though and with ups and downs of these negotiations, there are still some who are not ready to jump for joy just yet. Until an agreement is signed, there’s still the chance that there is no hockey, although highly unlikely.

The big question for fans will be — how many games, what is the schedule for my favorite team and when do they start?

Early guesses are a 50 or 48 game schedule, within your team’s conference only and games beginning either January 15 or January 19.

This may not leave a lot of time for fans to act if they choose to attend games so keep an eye on SelectATicket.com if you want to buy hockey tickets this season. You may find some deals as season ticket holders may find themselves unable to attend some games or less desirable matchups come to light, could result in a market surplus of tickets. But there will certainly be some must-see games as well, Devils vs Rangers, Rangers vs Islanders, Devils vs Flyers – all of these are always hot tickets no matter when they’re played!
