Andre BrownThis is the second year in a row Brown has broken his left leg however this fracture is considered to be much less serious and head coach Tom Coghlin is optimistic Brown can return to the lineup before the end of the season.

Despite suffering another injury setback, Brown remains positive and told the New York Post ““It’s not that bad of a break, just a tiny little crack in there.”

To replace Brown in the lineup it is likely the Giants will give a look to rookie Michael Cox, veteran Ryan Torain and Da’Rel Scott. Also a possibility would be the Giants look to bring in a free agent. Former Giant Brandon Jacobs is available but he wasn’t very successful towards the end of his Giants career, there is not much point in bringing him back.

Other recognizable veteran names are out there but these guys have a lot of mileage on their bodies at this point and it is unclear how much any of them have left to give:

  • Michael Turner
  • D.J. Ware
  • Cedric Benson
  • Willis McGahee
  • Ryan Grant
  • Tim Hightower

Expect the Giants to keep one eye on their current backs in practice and another eye on the waiver wire as teams trim their rosters down, maybe a useful back will become available for them.

In the meantime, David Wilson looks to be a good pickup in Fantasy Football leagues as he is going to be “The Man” in the backfield until further notice!

With preseason complete, all eyes are on the season opener Sept 8 in Dallas and the home opener Sept 15 vs Peyton Manning and the Denver Bronocs – visit SelectATicket.com where tickets remain available for all home games as well as MetLife Stadium parking passes.

Alfonso SorianoThe Yankees clobbered the Toronto Blue Jays 7-1 last night, backed by a two-home run game by Alfonso Soriano.

The home runs were numbers 399 and 400 of the slugger’s career. Soriano now has 11 home runs since joining the Yankees via trade on July 26.

This marks the 7th time a ballplayer has reached the 400 home run plateau as a New York Yankee. The list is rather impressive as Soriano joins the likes of:

  • Babe Ruth
  • Lou Gherig
  • Mickey Mantle
  • Reggie Jackson
  • Gary Sheffield
  • Alex Rodriguez

The first home run brought in 3 runs in the first inning which would prove to be enough padding to win the game. The second homer was a solo shot in the third inning.

The Yankees face an uphill climb towards the playoffs as they now stand 7.5 games behind Boston for first place in the American League East but as fans know, anything can happen in baseball. Larger leads have been lost at later times in the season than this but as Yogi Berra might say, “it is getting late early!”

The Yankees host the Red Sox in a 4 game homestand coming up which very well may decide their fate. A sweep of that series would put the Yankees right within striking distance of first place and possibly a wild card slot.

Tickets are available at SelectATicket.com for these and all remaining Yankees games this season.

Rex RyanAs even casual fans likely know by now, the New York Jets have been having a competition for starting quarterback this season during training camp.

Returning veteran Mark Sanchez has been challenged by rookie Geno Smith for the starting job from the moment Smith was drafted by the team.

However, injuries to both players has hampered the competition and clouded the waters.

When they do play, are we seeing them at 100%?

How much are this injuries effecting their production?

Is unrealistic to expect Smith to go from college to immediately being a starting NFL quarterback?

Doesn’t the team owe Sanchez some level of loyalty through all this or is he being made the scapegoat for recent failures?

A decimated offensive line, no running game, arguably only one decent receiving threat and a different offensive coordinator seemingly every season… are these ideal conditions for Sanchez to have grown over the past several years? No, of course not.

Head coach Rex Ryan knows all of these factors have played into the poor performances by Sanchez but he also knows Sanchez must be held accountable for his own failures as well.

One concern is maybe the team rushed Sanchez along and now it appears they may be in danger of doing exactly the same with Smith.

One thing’s for sure, there is never a dull moment with the New York Jets. Regardless of who is taking snaps, Jets fans are anxious to see a victory in Week 1 as the Jets take on the Tampa Bay Bucs at MetLife Stadium, Sunday September 8 at 1pm. Jets tickets and parking passes remain available at SelectATicket.com.

The Top 5 Events on SelectATicket.com changed up quite a bit as the Kentucky Oaks broke out in front. The sister race to the Kentucky Derby, the Oaks is gaining in popularity as more and more fans head to Churchill Downs for an extended weekend and the Oaks, held on the Friday before the Derby, is seeing an annual increase in attendance figures as a result.

  1. Kentucky Oaks
  2. 2014 NBA All Star Game
  3. New York Yankees
  4. Daytona 500
  5. NHL Stadium Series: NY Rangers vs NJ Devils

The rest of the list contains some major sporting events as well such as the NBA All Star Game, the Daytona 500, NY Yankees and the outdoor game between the NY Rangers and NJ Devils at Yankee Stadium in January 2014.

Check back next week to see what events top the list, it is unpredictable and always contains a few interesting surprises.

Geno SmithThe New York Jets and their quarterback controversy continues as Mark Sanchez had yet another up and down outing over the weekend. Turnovers and failure to convert in the Red Zone continue to plague the fifth year Jets quarterback to the point where this is almost certainly his final season in a Jets uniform.

With highly touted rookie Geno Smith on the roster, it was expected this preseason would be a fierce competition between the two but with Smith injured and Sanchez floundering at the helm, it is almost as if the winner of this competition will be backing into the starter’s job rather than stepping up and taking command.

That is exactly what the Jets are looking for from either quarterback and should he be healthy enough to play Saturday, Geno Smith is expected to get the start against the New York Giants in the annual Jets vs Giants preseason game.

In what is about as high profile as a preseason game gets, an annual matchup with co-tenant NY Giants always fires up fans on both sides and holds a little more weight for the players in terms of local bragging rights.

Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reported today via Twitter that Smith will get the start.

So what do you think, New York football fans? Will Smith rise to the occasion? Will Sanchez redeem himself enough to hold on to the starter’s job entering the season?

Sound off in the comments below and let us know.

New Owners for NJ Devils With previous ownership cash-strapped and deep in debt, there’s no doubt it held back the team from competing for marquee free agents in recent years.

The combination of shedding Ilya Kovalchuk’s massive contract and getting new, stable ownership in place makes this a great summer for the Devils on the financial side of the business.

On the ice the Devils have also been busy. While losing David Clarkson to a ridiculous contract offer from Toronto, the Devils replaced his grit and offense by signing Ryane Clowe away from the rival New York Rangers at a much lower annual salary cap hit.

Even more importantly, the Devils likely have solved their “goaltender of the future” question by obtaining Cory Schneider from Vancouver in exchange for their first round pick in this past Entry Draft.

Upcoming New Jersey Devils tickets are sure to be hot sellers as the team is on a positive upswing, order tickets today for big matchups against the Rangers, Islanders, Flyers, Penguins and the rest of the NHL teams.

Aug 13

Barclays CenterThe rumors all point to the 2015 NBA All Star Game being held in New York City.

The big debate among fans is will the game be played at Madison Square Garden or Barclays Center.

The New York Post reported earlier this week that it is likely a compromise will be found between the two venues and one building will host the All Star Saturday Night events which includes the Slam Dunk Contest and the other building will host the NBA All Star Game itself.

In any event, fans can sign up for email alerts to be among the first fans notified when tickets are available.

Picture from the 2012 Winter ClassicThe National Hockey League will be holding a press conference at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx tomorrow to announce the two outdoor games scheduled to be held there this season.

As part of the NHL Stadium Series, Yankee Stadium will host two NHL hockey games:

  • January 26 – New York Rangers vs New Jersey Devils
  • January 29 – New York Rangers vs New York Islanders

The games will be the first outdoor games for the Islanders and Devils and the first for the New York Rangers since the 2012 Winter Classic in Philadelphia.

Demand for these tickets will obviously be tremendous as the rivalries between these teams go back for decades at this point and every team now has multiple generations of fans.

The unique chance to see outdoor hockey at Yankee Stadium alone is enough to want to attend one or both of these games as the intensity in what would normally be a heated matchup gets increased just that much more by playing in front of a crowd at least 40,000 strong.

Tickets are available now via SelectATicket.com for both games and all NHL Stadium Series games in the 2013-2014 season.
